When a woman struggles to know her power, the external world will reflect it to her until she retrieves the wisdom. She will be drawn to what is missing; she will notice what isn't present. She will hunger for something greater, all the while finding herself caught in an endless trap of "not enough." This is the cycle Melissa Kim Corter has faced time and time again and has walked thousands of women through. The liberation of this devastating belief shifted everything. With the return of the soul and the claiming of power, life reveals a greater sense of vibrancy. This vibrancy is tangible and prevalent through all of nature; this is prosperity in a raw and unaltered form. The essence is potent, available, and present throughout this universe. The wise, wild woman feels this in her heart, she embodies the wisdom and brings the formless forward in tangible ways. This book contains women who "know" this truth and have taken many paths to tap into, express, cultivate, and share the medicine of prosperity. This collective includes women who have healed money wounds, honored their power, and they now celebrate others. They know ... we all get to win. The pages within are filled with powerful women who share a desire to live a prosperous and enchanted life and connect you to the abundance around and within you. In the Wild Woman's Book of Prosperity, Melissa Kim Corter and 32 magical women offer stories, tips, formulas, and wisdom to help you shift into a prosperous experience of life. They invite you to join them in sharing the most potent medicine of all ... the reclamation of enchantment with the energy of prosperity.

How do you face, and overcome your fears? How do you successfully transition through radical change, epic downsizing, leaving family behind, adjusting to a mobile life, and all the other ups and downs that are inevitable for women on the road? This book is written by a woman nomad, for women, to help get you through the roadblocks that many of us encounter as nomads. Whether you're dreaming, planning, already on the road, or just curious, this book is filled with ideas to help you navigate not only nomadic life, but also, any other life-altering events that may come your way. My name is Mary Ellen Telesha, and I've worked with and for women for over 25 years, first as a patient care advocate in a medical setting, and then as a Life Coach for women in my private life coaching practice. Now as a nomad meeting other women on the road, I see every one of you living extraordinary lives, elegantly and powerfully. All of you just blow me away.As I've sat over the many months writing this book, my heart has welled up for all the women out there dreaming, planning, or living on the road. I'm only one on this journey, with my partner Nancy we make two, but when I reach out with my heart, there you all are. We are a tribe of Wild Women on the Road, and your spirits are shining. Individually, we're being drawn to life on the road as nomads, but the nomadic movement is a bigger vision for women, for all of us. Our inward journey takes a solitary path, but it's that individual vision that connects us all as a tribe.Nomadism as a women's movement is one that's once again changing who we are in the world. It's a movement of freedom, and of knowing what we're capable of accomplishing for ourselves. Nomadism is teaching us we are so much more than what we've been convinced to believe, that our spirits run deeper than they want us to see. Now we're reclaiming that knowledge for ourselves.There are two journeys we take as Wild Women On The Road, one the physical, encompassing the roads we take, the sights we see, and fellow nomads we meet, and one the profound inner journey we take as we discover our wild and untamed selves on the road. This book is written to provide inspiration and guidance to help you navigate the profound inner journey of becoming a nomad, and in turn support your outward physical journey. In these modern times, the authentic woman is rising again in all her fierceness, and one of the ways she's showing up in the world is in the increasing multitudes of women following the call of their wild hearts to live as nomads. If you're reading this, you're among the growing numbers of women feeling the mysterious pull of the nomadic life. This book is written for you, wherever you may be in your life journeys!
