In this episode of our Six Weeks to Fitness podcast, I am joined by Reea Rodney, author, mother of two and childcare provider. Originally from Trinidad, Reea migrated to Brooklyn, New York in 2006 in search for a better life for her family. Because of her passion for her work as a childcare provider and desire to help children, Reea was inspired to write children’s books. She wanted to assist not only the kids who were under her care with the day to day issues they may be facing, but kids all over the world. Her stories addresses topics such as adjusting to change, fear, separation anxiety, bravery, imagination, witty personality, love, compassion and teamwork. Although Reea’s first book, “Juniper and Rose: Sisters and Best Friends Forever,” was written in 2012, Reea held back from releasing the book until October, 2016, due to fear and low self-esteem. It wasn’t until Reea read Steve Harvey’s book “Act Like A Success, Think Like A Success” that Reea decided to take that leap of faith and publish Juniper and Rose, which is receiving rave reviews from parents and children all across the country. Reea’s success reminds us of that quote from Napoleon Hill’s “Think and Grow Rich”, where he states “whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, he can achieve”. Reea is starting to achieve great success with Juniper and Rose, the first of a series of books about these adorable twin sisters.
