“a life guide. It goes way beyond the subject matter. Even men who have read it have told me that they have gotten so much out of it. If you’re dating, then this is for you. If you are thinking about getting out of a relationship this book is for you. If you are in a relationship, this book is for you.”
At its heart, the book teaches boundry drawing. “Knowing how to draw boundries is one of the hardest things to do without the tools -- and the book gives you the tools,” says Hickland. “We sure don’t get them in school. We don’t get them at home either. It’s not that we had bad parenting, it’s just that our parents didn’t know what they didn’t know, so how could they teach us?”
Along with culling from her own experience, Hickland did exhaustive research for the book. “When you do a self-help book, you take it pretty seriously,” she said. “I, myself, have a fantastic life and business coach. For years and years he’s been working with me on things. I would show him sections in the book and he helped me saying this would make sense. I had the counsel of a professional therapist. Now, we coach each other. I inspire him. Everybody needs to be inspired. Everybody. Now that I do this professionally -- I relationship coach people -- I can do trades with people. I do trading with other professionals. Everybody gets stuck. I just love, love, love what I do.”
Not only is Hickland now a published author and a relationship coach, she is the owner of Cat Cosmetics (http://www.catcosmetics.com ) a successful internet make up company with sell out appearances on QVC, she is a licensed advanced clinical hypnotist, has a new weekly internet radio show
(www.BlogTalkRadio.com/CatherineHickland ), is an inspirational speaker doing engagements around the country, and she continues to maintain her relationship with One Life to Live. But with a plate already quite full, Hickland is still not finished. Next on her agenda is hosting weekend self-help seminars.
“The seminars I am planning in the near future are not only about relationships, they will be about being stuck,” Hickland revaled to Soapdom. “We get lost and buried and we get ourselves convinced there’s no way out. I am a motivator. I want to get people together and say yes, you can do it! You can get unstuck.”
Hickland couldn’t be more excited about this next venture. She believes in her heart of hearts that this is her higher purpose – to help others. Having a rather successful acting, singing, and small business career, she still yearned to know what her true purpose was here on this earth. She’s prayed and prayed for guidance and has realized that helping and coaching people is her true calling. She promises that her new weekend seminars will be highly motivational -- the likes of which people have probably never been to before. “And they will be in a place that will be so much fun. At a price they will be able to afford.”
So, is Hickland’s mission to help others working? You bet. “I hear from people every single day,” she shared. “They contact me via my website (catherinehickland.com ), Facebook, Myspace. When people do the work, the work works. When I hear from people who have been held back by something and they are now able to let go, it’s inner peace. When I hear from them, it’s the greatest thing in the world for me.”
