What inspires people to write? Just about anything – really. For Heather Marie Wilson inspiration came from a garden she planted. Heather Marie’s life looked successful on the outside. She attained a great job right out of college, received steady promotions. As a strategy and marketing professional, she devoted more than a decade to studying personal development and to improving the quality of people’s lives. She rose to the level of corporate executive at a Fortune 50 company. Then she planted a garden – literally – and began to see and experience her life and the success spiral differently. She wrote down the thoughts and reflections and “ah ha” moments that came to her. Out of those writings emerged her book: Seeds of Freedom: Cultivating a Life that Matters.
What was it about gardening that touched the life of a corporate executive and spawned a book and a new approach to life and work?
