Turning Point to get
proceeds from woman's book
Leadership coach and author Kirsten E. Ross is donating proceeds from two events to Turning Point in Macomb County.
Turning Point works toward ending the use of violence as a means of oppressing and controlling others, and endorses the concept of helping people assume power over their lives. The organization serves the community by providing services and programs to assist educating about the dynamics of domestic violence and sexual assault, and as a voice advocating for the people it serves.
"I'm benefiting Turning Point because I was in an abusive marriage," said Ross, author of "From People Problems to Productivity" and the upcoming book "Defeat the Drama." "I used their services nine years ago. I actually launched the business that sparked both books as part of my strategy to get out of my situation. I was a stay at home mom and needed to make money. I started the business and filed for divorce about four months later. This is my way of giving back and it is a real full circle moment for me."
Ross has set a virtual book launch for her latest book, "Defeat the Drama," on her website www.DefeattheDrama.com. The regular book launch will be 7-9 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 16, at the Pi Banquet Hall, 28847 Franklin Road, Southfield.
Tickets are available at www.DefeattheDrama.com/Event. Proceeds from both events will be donated to Turning Point.
For information on the book and author, call (586) 558-6683 or e-mail info@DefeatTheDrama.com.
