A true “life resource,” Gather As You Go – Sharing Lessons Learned Along the Way is a collection of 300+ stories with powerful lessons, key insights and helpful tips from Carol Lavin Bernick, learned through her experiences as a corporate and civic leader, working mother and philanthropist. Through her insights, thoughts, and wisdoms, she provides people of all ages practical advice to enjoy a more resilient, positive and productive life.
Rather than writing several books, Bernick chose to create one self-help book imparting easily digestible short stories of her experiences for people with crazy, busy lives. Gather As You Go is part business book - sharing stories from her thirty-seven years at the Alberto Culver Company and encompassing new product development, branding, the company’s cultural overhaul she led, and the challenges in a family-owned business.
It’s also part family focused – with advice on raising great kids as a working mom, losing loved ones - one to drugs and one to cancer, and the challenges of and solutions to helping elderly parents.
It’s also part coffee table and lifestyle book – providing tips on designing, building and decorating homes; entertaining, throwing great parties and weddings; and creating meaningful and major charitable efforts to make communities stronger through philanthropy.
Gather As You Go covers a lot of ground. Organized into 10 chapters that take the form of quick, informative and empowering life lessons and reflections, each chapter features introductory thoughts from well-respected people speaking to their own expertise.
With its beautiful photographs and artful illustrations, this substantive, 455-page book is a must-have. From Millennial to Baby Boomer, readers will find Bernick’s teachings to be authentic, sincere, and down-to-earth.
All net proceeds from the sale of Gather As You Go benefit Enchanted Backpack, a nonprofit that delivers school supply essentials, books, education resources, winter coats, art supplies, recess equipment and more to under-resourced schools in the Chicagoland area. Each year the organization will touch the hearts and minds of 20,000 students.
