DISCLAIMER: Women Worldwide Note: This interview reflects a discussion with Helio Fred Garcia about his book, Words on Fire. The interview is not intended to be a complete analysis or reflect the express views of the Women Worldwide Network and show sponsors. Rather, we hope our network will digest the information thoroughly and, regardless of political views, raise your voices by casting your vote in the November 3rd election.
The words you speak and share have the power to change lives. This is true of everyone but even more so of our leaders and politicians. Helio Fred Garcia has spent his life studying the power of language because of his own experiences as a child. He knows first hand how words can change the world.
Fred came to America as an immigrant with little knowledge of the English language, a hard to pronounce name, and a very heavy accent. He was bullied to the point of terror and worse. But all it took was the help and guidance of one amazing teacher and he learned the language and found his place in the world.
It was as he was learning his new language that he realized the true power of words. He has since studied the patterns of speech used in the highest courts of the country and realized that many of the things being said today are reminiscent of scary times in history.
Listen as we chat about the power of incendiary language and how it is affecting us today. Fred shares examples from his book of moments in recent history that were directly responsible for loss of human life and barbaric treatment of those wishing to come to America.
Fred has so many amazing insights to share, but the most important is his view on how each and every one of us can stand up to the leaders who are still using incendiary language to incite the population. Listen in to learn more.

I recently posed a question to my social media community asking them what was holding them back. It was very interesting to note that while I got a bunch of likes and hearts, there were very few comments.
Now that could mean one of two things. Either everyone is killing it and taking risks and putting themselves out there to learn and grow in life and business. OR it didn’t feel like a safe space to really dig into the things that are holding you back.
If you’ve been experiencing those feelings of doubt and unease, then I have three tips to help you overcome your blocks and barriers.
First, look internally to understand and then scale those barriers. There’s so much noise out there, but that noise is a distraction from the truth of your personal blocks. Look internally and work on your internal voice.
In that same vein, stop being so hard on yourself. When you take risks, you will make mistakes. That’s how you learn and the best way to grow. Allow yourself the grace to take the risk and if you fall, just remember to get back up.
Then always listen to your internal GPS. If an opportunity comes your way and you feel excited about it, then don’t listen to the voices that later make you doubt yourself. Your initial gut feeling was likely right and that opportunity should be yours.
So, what’s holding you back? How can you overcome it?

It doesn’t matter how prevalent video and images become, words are still the best way to express yourself. Rea Frey has been putting pen to paper and fingers to keys for many years writing and having her work published. She has been published by one of the 5 big publishers and is helping her clients to write and publish books of their own.
Rea started writing when she entered a poetry contest and won. It wasn’t until years later when she was experiencing a huge medical trauma that she really dug in and started honing in her craft and her stories. Fast-forward several years later and she began to study the world of publishing and how and why it works the way it does.
Since then she’s created courses, published more works, and helped other writers to find their way in the world of publishing. She’s sharing her tips and advice on the best way to start writing and to be sure that you’re viewing your book properly in the grand scheme of things. It is a product to be sold, and you’re the one responsible for selling it.
Learn why it’s necessary to build a platform and engage with your readers before your book even launches (because email lists aren’t just for big and small business owners.) If you want to be taken seriously as an author, then writing a fantastic book is just the first step.
Rea is an inspiration and her story is definitely an amazing one for all aspiring writers who are seeking to become published authors. Success doesn’t come overnight, so just keep writing and putting your words out there.
