About the Author

Valerie Beck is President and Co-Founder of Women's Innovation Network (WIN), a nonprofit association whose mission is to promote massive business growth for women entrepreneurs, through innovation, inclusion, and inspiration, in a positive and ethical environment. WIN holds business events ranging from Spa + Cupcakes gatherings, to Innovation Circle mastermind meetings, and also provides Members with coordinated opportunities for charitable outreach. In addition, Valerie is CEO and Founder of Chicago Chocolate Tours, Philadelphia Chocolate Tours, and Boston Chocolate Walking Tours. The businesses provide guided walking and tasting tours to select chocolate shops, bakeries, and cafes, where guests sample, learn, and enjoy. The company's Tourguides share fun facts about the history and health benefits of chocolate, and guests meet shop owners and managers while sampling the specialties at each stop. The tours appeal to groups such as client entertainment parties, networking groups, companies planning employee outings, conventioneers, bachelorette parties, family reunions, and locals in search of something new. Public and private tours are available, and the tours are fun, fascinating, and delicious. The companies also offer items and services which include gift certificates, chocolate-colored fine cultured pearls, a Chocolate Travel Club, and cupcake tours, where available. Valerie's businesses have been featured in numerous publications and media, including ABC, NBC, WGN TV and Radio, CNN.com, Midwest Living, The Chicago Tribune, The Chicago Sun-Times, Today's Chicago Woman, Crain's Chicago Business, the Daily Herald Business Ledger, and the Philadelphia Business Journal. Valerie's team of Tourguides, Managers, and Staff - the Choc Stars - join her in enthusiastic support of the mission of Uplift Through Chocolate, including through support of local charities in each market. Valerie graduated from Harvard College and Harvard Law School, and prior to becoming an entrepreneur, she practiced as a lawyer in the US and Europe. Today, she is a cheerful chocolate expert in the media, and she speaks at seminars on alternative careers for lawyers, to corporate and other groups on how to create sweet success and live authentically, and to college and other students on entrepreneurship. Valerie lives in Chicago and maintains a daily optimism practice, enhanced by daily reading and daily chocolate.

I enjoyed reading POSITIVE PARABLES by Valerie Beck. The uplifting parables are short but pack a mighty punch. This little gem would be wonderful for use in any classroom. In addition, parents could use it as a bedtime story book for their children.

"You Never Know" is my favorite parable because it positively considers the past, present, and future. It also inspires hope as do all of Ms Beck's parables.

POSITIVE PARABLES is a powerful little book that can be read repeatedly, whether one is feeling low or flying high. To be honest, this entire world could use more positivity! Become positively inspired with POSITIVE PARABLES!

This book is thin. Should be called a booklet. The pages are all text with no formatting. The stories, some can be found online, some I've read before. The only attractive appeal is the book cover. And no idea what the picture on the book is meant to convey. What I feel would be value add is to add a moral of the story for each short story, but no, you are left on your own. Some stories have less than 10 words. Go figure.
It's just a compilation of short (and very short) stories.
To me, it's not worth the $8 I paid.
