I am Rebecca Hall Gruyter, a Leadership Coach, Empowerment Leader, and Influencer committed to bringing experts and influencers forward, so that together we can lean in and make the world a better place, one heart and life at a time. I’m founder of Your Purpose Driven Practice, creator of the Women’s Empowerment Series events/TV shows, and CEO of RHG Media Productions™ .
I’m passionate about women stepping forward and sharing their wisdom, heart, lives, and stories because I know firsthand what it is like to come from a much-disempowered place. I experienced all types of abuse during my formative years, an environment which made me believe false messages like: “I am not okay,” “There is something wrong with me,” and “It is NOT safe to be seen or heard.”
In my growth journey, I thankfully discovered that these beliefs are not true, that I am beautifully and wonderfully made, on purpose and for a purpose, and that it is safe to be seen and heard. From this empowered place I’ve built an impassioned cause and global business of radio/TV media platforms, books, coaching programs, and speaking to support women to step into the center of their lives and SHINE!
My heart’s calling is to equip and empower women to really step forward fully in their lives. I believe that on this journey we need others to encourage us, to speak wisdom and truth into us, to love us and cheer us on, and to help us stand up again when we fall. This book was designed to walk beside the reader in just this way, to help them complete all that they are called to complete.
I invited each heart-centered, powerful co-author to share their personal stories, what they experienced and what they learned. Our readers will feel the transparent heartbeat of those who have walked through dark and challenging times, have triumphed, and now have wisdom to share that will help make the journey easier for others.
I want every reader to know this: You have unique gifts, talents, abilities, stories, journeys, and perspectives that you alone can bring forward. Be willing to share the gift of you! Be willing to be seen and to SHINE!
My audience is any woman or man who wants to live a purposeful, meaningful, joyful life yet is feeling held back or sensing there is something more for them to learn or do in order to fully step into what they are being called to be. For many, they have experienced (as I have) something in their past that has disempowered them, kept them in the shadows instead center stage in their lives. They yearn to know how to be in alignment with their core values, their passions and their business so they can impact the world in the unique and wonderful ways in which they are gifted.
Yes, we’ll be releasing another anthology called Experts & Influencers: The Leadership Edition, in July of 2019. Our amazing co-authors will share their personal expertise on everything from leadership mindset, habits for success, leadership skills and abilities, to showing up and stepping into powerful leadership and influence.
The Kindle and print versions are available on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Step-Forward-SHINE-Rebecca-Hall-Gruyter-ebook/dp/B07HGQ67CY.

What would you tell others if they want to write?
I believe we all have stories, wisdom and gifts to share, and there are people who need to hear them from us. If anyone feels a pull on their heart to reach out in this way, listen to it and take action. Writing is also a wonderful way to get more visible, so you can have more impact and influence in the world. The reach of our books is often in the millions – think about being seen and heard by that many people! And I just say this to you: Be willing to be seen and SHINE!
