A little fun and interesting story... Julie has been a coffee drinker since she was 3-years old. Her Norwegian Grandma was her very first coffee break companion, teaching her how to take her first coffee breaks by dunking cookies into her coffee. She loved those inspirational coffee breaks with her Grandma growing up on the farm. Since then, Julie has never missed a day without coffee (or sweets)! Julie has put her inspiring, coffee-loving personality to good use, publishing a unique and creative book of wisdom, lessons and inspiring stories. Her self-published book received two national book awards, being named a finalist in the prestigious National Best Books Awards from USA Books News which honors the most outstanding books in the self-improvement genre. It also received the National Indie Excellence Award, recognizing the “best of the best” in book publishing. It also became an Amazon.com bestseller, which then turned into requests for speaking and life coaching and an inspirational product line and you could say the rest is history.
