9 Steps to Breakthrough to Happy

• November 16th, 2013

The tables are turned, this time it's co-host of Passion By Design, Sandy Peckinpah being interviewed by Rose James on her show, Transform Your Life. 

Sandy thought she had a “fairy tale” life. She was the wife of David Peckinpah,  a writer and Emmy nominated television producer, she had just completed her book tour for her newly published children's book, and her family was at the very core of all that mattered in life. One day, her oldest son woke up with a fever and was dead the next morning of a deadly killer, bacterial meningitis. 

That was just the beginning of a series of events that spiraled her life out of her fairy tale and into a passionate quest to resurrect a new life, start a new career, and build a life of love, meaning, and purpose. In the process, of developing a successful system for herself, she began helping others rise up from life’s most challenging and difficult transitions. In the course of this interview, you'll learn her 9 steps for bouncing back after life takes you down. 

But what is a fairy tale after all? It's about triumph over adversity. This fairy tale does have a happy ending... listen in! For more, visit Sandy's blog at
