Today I have Rosie Mankes with me. She is a life coach and author of Find Your Joy and Run With It, a heartwarming memoir about overcoming her second battle with cancer, the transitioning of her mother into an assisted living facility, and the unexpected loss of her brother, all within one year. Rosie’s recovery from these major challenges inspired her to become a life coach, in order to help people pull through significant adversity and life challenges. Rosie is a resident of New Jersey, where she lives with her husband. She is the mother of two grown sons.

Memorable Quotes:

“I don’t want to miss the beautiful gift of now. And that’s what I live by. Like when I’m getting worried or I’m starting to kiss it out. I try to pull myself back to where I am and, sure. We all have to make educated decisions for ourselves, but sometimes the best places to be where your feet are planted, because sets in, as people say, yesterday’s gone, tomorrows not promised, live for today.” ~ Rosie

“So, I wrote this book, at the time I wrote it, I thought it would just be cathartic for me. I was writing it because actually it was a dare, a producer friend of mine. He said to me, wow, this your story is so amazing.” ~ Rosie
