Nerissa has written a wonderful book called 31 Days of YES! An Unexpected Month of Joy, Passion and Freedom.

In her book, you will find daily readings that will “challenge you to say yes to your whole life experience: the good, the bad and the indifferent.” This inspiring book will cause you to rethink the way you are approaching your journey and hopefully help you realize what you need to do in order to realize your purpose and your passions.
