Intimate Conversation with Monica Cost

The Things I Used to do to Sneeze!

How to Live an Authentic Life with Awesome Sensations
by Monica Cost

“The Things I Used to do to Sneeze!  by Monica D. Cost  is a self exploration book on defining your personal truth and living an authentic life; aesthetically, emotionally, spiritually, relationally, financially, professionally and parentally. Using the comparison of Monica’s own love of the sensation of sneezing, to that of “sensations” sought after in life, readers are taken on a journey of self discovery, beginning with the identification of desires and understanding of personal values, to live the most authentic, purposeful and fulfilled life possible.

Intimate Conversation with Monica Cost

Brand Strategist, Author and Speaker Monica Cost, knows all too well what it feels like to be stuck, have regret and to be overwhelmed with the noise of external expectations and labels. From her profession to her relationship, Monica’s finances to her spirituality, it was all closing in. Chasing the ever elusive status of “successful” and coveted societal labels became exhausting. She quit her job, made a change in her relationship, explored her spirituality, dug into her emotional wounds, started living beneath her means and otherwise making every life decision according to her discovered personal values. She ventured! She gained! She is free!
