Her book is entitled Rising Stronger: Living, Loving, and Leading From a Seat of Gratitude. Rising stronger above adversities, setbacks, grief, abandonment, divorce, career transition, and other challenges comes easier for some people and more difficult for others. Dr. Pauline E. Wallner shares more than forty years of experience in Jamaica, United States, and Canada, recounting how she overcame challenges on the road to a successful consulting career. As many experienced authors will tell you, the content of any non-fiction book is more about the author than the reader. Rising stronger is about having the courage to live after physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual storms. From Dr. Pauline E. Wallner to the Readers: If my stories resonate with you in any way and motivate you to do something different, including: love the one you are with; mend a relationship; take a vacation off the beaten track; become a better single male or female parent; explore a new culture; find a new love; foster or adopt a child; start a blog; become a more compassionate son or daughter; spend time with your grandparents; be a more loving human being; volunteer at a homeless shelter; heal your broken heart; or seek higher education, then the purpose of this book is partially achieved. If your overall takeaway is to keep “Rising Stronger” then you know it is important to recognize what you must start, stop, and continue doing.
