September 2015 Update

The big news this month is the upcoming publication of my first book Produce Yourself!. The book is available for sale on Amazon and elsewhere. I'm also working on the next CTFD Gala, and a number of other projects. It's an exciting time for me, and I hope for you as well. Hope you had a great summer!

Produce Yourself! is Ann Marie DeAngelo’s empowering and richly layered presentation that seeks to motivate readers to find ways to embody success. The reader will journey through a dancer’s process, learning the physicality of imagination, and illuminate the art of possibility. Dancers have presence and confidence. The difference between success and near-success is confidence.

Produce Yourself! claims that visualizing is not enough to realize goals, and introduces the act of visceralizing, experiencing a desired outcome (as dancers do) through concentration and intense Focus. Included in the book are simple moves and coaching exercises to engage readers in their own process. Stand Up! Be Still. Step Up! Be Connected. Move! Be in Action.

Produce Yourself! is not a program but an interactive system of learning, encouraging readers to:

  • Put yourself front and center
  • Embrace yourself, embrace your goals
  • Take a step – take the next step
  • Discover the physicality of Focus
  • Be an instrument of your own creativity
  • Reach beyond your potential into what is possible
  • Learn success tools, including The 9 C’s: Concentration, Clarity, Commitment, Connection, Coordination, Consistency, Courage, Confidence, Completion
  • Get out of your own way and be open to succeed.
