#148 – Cindy Tschosik on How to Write a Prescriptive Memoir to Showcase Your Journey to Mental Wellness

At four years old, Cindy knew she was called to make the world a better place.

In high school, her English teacher told her she would be an impactful writer one day.

For retirement, Cindy dreamed of ghostwriting books on a beach.

Sheʼs been ghostwriting and development editing nonfiction books and articles since 2013.

She doesnʼt have the beach yet, but itʼs coming!

During a long summer weekend in June 2014, Cindy spent two days planning the end of her life by suicide.

The only reason she survived was because a “Sliver of Light” appeared in the middle of her family room.

It had no business being there.

After meditating on it for a long time, stopped crying and Cindy stood up.

It was in that moment she knew she had been led to the deepest level of darkness in order to share her journey of mental illness and educate others how to recognize, treat, and talk about their mental health challenges so they would have the tools to help themselves and others through lifeʼs dark moments.

As the CEO of SoConnected, Cindyʼs “callings” have come full circle to make a difference in the world.

Whether itʼs a story from the stage or an authorʼs story in their book, Cindy and the SoConnected Team is committed to Change Lives. Save Lives. Celebrate Lives! One Story at a Time.
