In every iteration of my life’s work, the thruline has been holding a space of love for others to become the best version of themselves.

From camp counseling and teaching aerobics as a teenager to owning my own yoga studio and personal training gym in my thirties, I loved the people I served. More recently as CEO and Founder of Get Your Book Done LLC and Capucia LLC, I’ve continued to love and support others by facilitating transformational retreats and offering programs and services to 80,000+ aspiring authors showing them how to write, publish and launch their life-changing books.

But in my forties when I went through a dark night of the soul, and lost what felt like my identity in the midst of bankruptcy and foreclosure, it was at that time that I needed to learn how to more deeply love myself.

One of the ways I did that was to create community and surround myself with other entrepreneurial women who could lift each other up.

On one of my darkest days, I was scheduled to lead our monthly virtual meeting, but i had no idea how I’d find the strength and courage to do that. I just wanted to curl up into a ball and cry on the floor all day. But, I didn’t. I thought of the other women and how I’d likely feel better by connecting with them. So I showed up and opened with a guided meditation.

In that meditation I heard myself say the words, “imagine yourself wrapped in a blanket of love.” This was what I wanted to feel. So, when I said those words, my entire body came alive with a shot of energy and goosebumps. I knew in the core of my being that I was to create a wrap (having been a wrap wearer for decades) that represented that feeling. The feeling of a tender hug, of literally being wrapped in love.

Within 90 days I researched prototypes, had a friend create a logo (you can see the first iteration below), and made a few samples.  They were well received and people got excited about the product.

But to get my family back on financial ground, I set that project aside to further my work serving authors as that felt like a safer route to stability. Starting a new business in an industry I didn’t have experience in didn’t feel like a wise idea.

But now, more than a decade after the concept of Love Wraps (earlier named Wrap Yourself in Love until the late founder of CEO Space Berny Dohrmann helped me with the name Love Wraps), I am grateful that my other businesses are now in a place that allows me to bring Love Wraps to life!

Especially now, while the world has and continues to experience monumental challenges on a global and personal level, it seems like the perfect time to bring more love into the world.
