On Being Inspired

Two years ago I was presented with an opportunity to be the writing instructor for the Cancer Support Community of Greater St. Louis.

It would be one of the best decisions of my life.

As a social worker and writer, I know that writing serves a purpose in processing our lives. I’ve been writing forever-my story, other people’s stories and through it all, I learned, grew, cried, laughed, and was able to understand on a deeper level the work I was doing was relevant and important.

Cancer Support Community of Greater St. Louis (CSC) has a mission:  “To ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community to enhance their overall well-being." CSC provides a comprehensive professional program of social and emotional support and education designed to enhance the mind, body, and spirit of people whose lives have been affected by cancer.

All of the programs and services are provided...

#Thrive Thursday: Meet Randy Peyser, Owner Author One Stop, Inc.

thrive thursday Jul 21, 2020

What is your story? Or in other words, what made you your awesome self you are today?

I stood off the 101 Freeway in Mill Valley, California at rush hour on a Wednesday. I wore a dress, heels, and makeup. I held up a giant cardboard sign as the cars passed by. It read, “Author Seeks Publisher.” That night, a publisher called me. He offered me the job of Editor-in-Chief of his national magazine. 

It was my dream to have a career as an author. I had written my first book, “Crappy to Happy,” and had been searching for a publisher. When nothing was left in my refrigerator except for the box of baking soda, I had decided to do that stunt above. It was a sheer act of bravery, as I was a shy person at that time. (I called this stunt my “random act of chutzpah,” or in my case, it was a “Randy act of chutzpah.”)

Running that magazine increased my credibility in the eyes of publishers. In time, I was able to enter the book publishing world,...

#Thrive Thursday: Meet Erin Lehr, Kpi Bookkeeping & Consulting

thrive thursday Jul 21, 2020

What is your story? Or in other words, what made you your awesome self you are today?

I worked for 17 years in the restaurant industry in management roles for both corporate restaurants and independent owner/operators.  My last seven-year stint was with an independently chef-owned restaurant. It was the best education I received in running a small business with a lot of moving parts. I was taking care of the behind the scenes business operations while wearing many hats, HR, bookkeeping, inventory, marketing, & payroll. When you work in an industry with a very tight profit margin, your income and costs are everything to the success of the restaurant.  Every day, I had to know what our costs were, what our projected sales were, and if we needed to make changes that day based on current trends. When I left the industry, I quickly realized that a lot of small and large corporate businesses did not pay attention to or know their numbers.  I wanted to change this. ...

What is your story? Or in other words, what made you your awesome self you are today?

I am the owner of Wasi Investments, LLC, a fully diversified real estate investment company. I live in Orange County, CA, and I have mastered long-distance investing. My main territories are Las Vegas and Indianapolis, among others. I flip houses and own a portfolio of rental properties of single and multi-family units. I also own short term rentals, commonly known as Airbnbs. After the 2008 recession, I was motivated to change careers. I had just graduated with a focus in international business with a minor in Chinese. However, I wanted to be more in control of my future. My current career has allowed me to achieve that and more. It is also a testament that a young, female immigrant can lead and provide jobs in a male-dominated industry.  It comes with its challenges, but I have learned to enjoy them. 

I immigrated to America at the age of 17. Contrary to many immigrant stories, I had...
