These days there are innumerable sources online and off to give people a helping hand moving in the right direction. 
Oh no, not another ‘guide to’ book!

During my travels in life, I’ve encountered so many ‘helping hand’ tips, meme’s, proverbs, garbage… and some small nuggets of gold that have helped me – and also hindered.

I’ve always striven to help out others in any way I can and found myself writing numerous smaller articles for blogs across a vast variety of different industries. 
What it came back down to at the end of the day was that people were looking at how they could transform their lives to be able to actually enjoy what they did.
I’m no stranger to that!

This small book is coming from my own personal experiences and detours taken in life and what I’ve done to get ‘back on track’ to where I wanted to be. To push through the external influences in this life that we take for granted and push through to the other side – the side that allows us to spend our days doing what we’re passionate about, and earning a living out of it!

At the end of the day, this is what we’re all actually trying to achieve. Somehow living a life that allows us to be ourselves – the best version of ourselves that we possibly can be.

There isn’t any angle in this book. I’m not trying to sell you anything or gain anything from you. It’s my sincere wish that some of the tips and guides in this book actually help you get your own life ‘back on track’ and allow you the flexibility to showcase to the world who you truly are.

In this book you will find anecdotes, tips, guides and I hope, enough of the gold nuggets to help you on your journey. There are some success stories, some failures and disasters but overall I hope you get something valuable out of reading this.

If, after reading through these tips and tricks you find something useful, please share it with me. I love to hear from people that may have been helped out in whatever small way possible. 

Hoping all our dreams and plans come to fruition,

Founded in the summer of 1972 by a few friends as a modest celebration, the Southern Decadence festival has since grown into one of New Orleans’s largest annual tourist events.

The multiday extravaganza features street parties, drag contests, dancing, drinking, and bead tosses, culminating with a boisterous parade through the French Quarter. With over 200,000 participants—predominantly LGBT+—these unbridled, pre–Labor Day festivities now generate millions of dollars in revenue.

Howard Philips Smith and Frank Perez’s Southern Decadence in New Orleans brings together an astounding array of materials to provide the first comprehensive, historical look at Southern Decadence. In an engaging account spanning five decades, the authors combine a trove of rare memorabilia from the event’s founders, early photographs and film stills, newspaper and magazine articles, interviews with longtime participants, a list of all the parades and grand marshals, as well as reproductions of early Southern Decadence invitations. Throughout, the authors explore the pivotal moments and public perceptions related to the festival—including the myths and conjecture that often inaccurately characterized it—and provide an in-depth narrative detailing how a small party in the Faubourg Tremé grew into a worldwide destination predominantly for gay men.

Lauded by city leaders as the second-most profitable festival in New Orleans (outshone only by Mardi Gras), Southern Decadence emanates an air of frivolity that masks its enormous impact on the culture and economy of the Crescent City. But with such growth comes the challenge of maintaining the original spirit of camaraderie while managing expanding administrative and logistical responsibilities. Southern Decadence in New Orleans serves as a historical record that helps ensure the future of the celebration remains forever linked to the joyous impulse of its humble beginnings.
