Speech-Language Therapist Kathryn Thorson Gruhn MA CCC-SLP Hits Amazon Best-Seller Lists with “The Soul of Success”

Kathryn Thorson Gruhn recently hit ten Amazon Best-Seller lists in the United States and Canada with “The Soul of Success.”

Santa Barbara, CA – October 12, 2015 – Kathryn Thorson Gruhn recently joined a select group of business experts and entrepreneurs from around the world, along with Best-Selling Author® Jack Canfield, originator of the Chicken Soup for the Soul® series, to co-write the book , The Soul of Success, Vol.1: The World’s Leading Entrepreneurs and Professionals Reveal Their Core Strategies for Getting to the Heart of Health, Wealth and Success. The book was released on September 10th 2015 by CelebrityPress™ - a leading business book publisher.

On the day of release, The Soul of Success reached best-seller status in six US Amazon categories - reaching as high as #1 in: “Direct Marketing” and “Marketing in Small Businesses” categories.  The book also reached  #9 in “Marketing,” #15 in “Marketing and Sales,”#20 in “ Entrepreneurship,” and #22 “Small Business and Entrepreneurship” categories. The Soul of Success became an international best-seller, reaching as high as #1 in “Direct Marketing” on Amazon in Canada. Additionally, The Soul of Success reached #8 in “Marketing,” #10 in “Marketing and Sales,” #12 in “Small Business and Entrepreneurship,” and #55 in “Business Management” in the international categories. Kathryn Thorson Gruhn contributed a chapter titled “Red Flags Your Pediatrician Doesn’t Have Time To Catch: Six Practical Tactics Parents Need To Help Their Child Succeed.”

After Kathryn Thorson Gruhn, attended her father’s post- laryngectomy surgery voice therapy at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, she was convinced this was the career she wanted. After meeting Mother Theresa in India, helping others was engraved in her soul.

Finishing her degree at the University of Minnesota – Mankato, she worked in various school systems for ten years. She earned a Master’s Degree at Appalachian State University in North Carolina, with Certified Clinical Competence and worked in clinics, hospitals, rehab facilities and developmental day cares for twenty-five more years. Kathryn specialized in working with children from birth to seven in her private practice. 

Her most rewarding experience was working in an all-inclusive developmental facility in Charlotte, North Carolina. Physical therapists, occupational therapists, educational specialists and physicians were part of the team in this program. Parents and health care providers worked as partners to help each child reach their potential.

Inspired by her experience, Kathryn published the My Baby Compass series, a child development program that helps parents assess and enhance their child’s ability from birth to seven years of age. Pediatricians love the program because My Baby Compass helps parents document a child’s developmental history and provides coordinating activities to promote growth in speech, language, cognitive, hearing, physical and social/emotional skills. Using this program, a parent can tell quickly if their child is on target for typical development, and if not, what to do to help their child. Parents using the system are seeing advanced speech and language skills and cognitive awareness in their child. My Baby Compass is an easy program to understand and use. It is the ticket for a child’s academic success. 

CelebrityPress™ describes the book:

Success is a concept universally embraced but individually defined. Our definition of success truly depends on our individual goals. For example, your goal might be monetary, a physical accomplishment or a moral achievement. To flesh out this topic, we are adding a few comments made by famous and successful people in diverse fields - similar and familiar concepts to those put forward by the Premier Experts® in this book.

Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed. ~ Booker T. Washington 

You can succeed best and quickest by helping others to succeed. ~ Napoleon Hill 

The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack in will. ~ Vince Lombardi 

Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude. ~ Thorson Jefferson

In our New Economy, the acquisition of success has been reformatted somewhat by business and industry even though its principles remain the same. The Electronic Revolution has changed the economic landscape as much as the Industrial Revolution. We now live more and more in "real time" and expect others to do the same. This era of instant communication has changed the ways in which we communicate and expect responses.

To succeed today, it is useful, perhaps essential, to have a mentor. Errors will be made, but to minimize them will speed up your journey. The Premier Experts® in this book will help you along the way. They have been there and know the road. Who would be better to guide you? They will illuminate your path to The Soul Of Success...

After such a successful release, Kathryn Thorson Gruhn will be recognized by The National Academy of Best-Selling Authors™, an organization that honors authors from many of the leading independent best-seller lists.
