Today, Stacey launches a 25-day collaborative crowd-funding campaign for her new book ‘How to be more resilient: the blueprint for getting results when things don’t go to plan’.
The campaign has a whole team behind it ensuring success, including self-publishing guru Guy Vincent from Publishizer, who helped Scott Bales, author of book Mobile Ready raise over US$28,000 through crowd-funding. “Stacey has mentally overcome quadriplegia to become an elite athlete and 2016 Paralympic Games contender. Her story spreads the message of resilience, and I feel that’s a great thing for athletes, trainers, startups and students of life,” says Mr Vincent.
As part of the campaign Stacey has written a light-hearted quiz, in which respondents are assigned a movie or TV character, to help individuals discover whether their resilience is up to par.
“Resilience is often confused as a human trait, it’s actually a process and your resilience can be learned, built and nurtured to help you cope with stresses and pressures on your life,” says Mrs Copas.
Stacey has made it her life ambition to study, research and use her own life experiences and successes to help others become more resilient, especially in times of crisis. The book will be published in August where all those supporting her on her dream of becoming a published author will get their nice shiny copy.
