    Spark your imagination. Shed limiting beliefs. Find your voice. BE... is a multidimensional approach to bringing out the magic in you. Braided with universal truths and the power of the Divine Feminine, our book is all about being happy, aligned, and intentional in life and business. The words, stories, and practices in this book help you to take a step back, break free from modern myths about productivity and worth, and release what's no longer serving you. An everyday exploration of your authentic passion, BE... is our supportive guide to a clear, visionary, and prosperous future. BE... is a unique collaboration between three incredible co-authors: Ashley Black, a #1 national bestselling author and a 2020 ABA Entrepreneur; Korie Minkus, a renowned brand strategist, global consultant, and motivational speaker in more than thirty countries; and Lisa Vrancken, an award-winning television producer and marketing/brand expert. Together, we take a deep dive into the four pillars--passion, purpose, products, and prosperity. Our book offers more than a dozen exercises and actions (we call them Movements!) to get you thinking, feeling, and flowing. Woven with our personal stories and insights, along with words of wisdom from Randi Zuckerberg, Natasha Grano, and so many more, BE... cracks the code to put your purpose in motion. BE... is a fun, light-hearted read to illuminate the fractures of the past and fill them with love. Definitely not your ordinary business book, our first collaboration is really about the journey back home to yourself.

Through her success in consumer products, she is now expanding her purpose to helping others with their own passions to bring their ideas to fruition. This book is her quantum jump into empowering women with the strategies, tools, and support they need to be free and unbridled and share their special gifts with the world through business.

    From the host of Food Network's Girl Meets Farm and bestselling author of the IACP award-winning Molly on the Range, a collection of cozy recipes that feel like celebrations. Home Is Where the Eggs Are is an intimate book full of food that's best enjoyed in the comfort of sweatpants and third-day hair, by a television host and new mom living on a sugar beet farm in East Grand Forks, MN. Molly Yeh's cooking is built low-maintenance dishes that are satisfying to make for weeknight meals to celebrate empty to-do lists after long workdays, cozy Sunday soups to simmer during the first (or seventh!) snowfall of the year, and desserts that will keep happily under the cake dome for long enough that you will never feel pressure to share.

    The flavors in this book draw inspiration from a distinctive blend of Molly's experiences--her Chinese and Jewish heritage, her time living in New York, her husband's Scandinavian heritage, and their farm in the upper Midwest. She uses seasonal ingredients that are common in her region while singlehandedly supporting the za'atar and sumac import industry in her small town. These influences come together into fuss-free crave-able meals that dirty as few dishes as possible and offer loads of prep-ahead, freezing, and substitution tips. In Home Is Where the Eggs Are, the feeling of home starts in the kitchen; just melt some butter, fry an egg, and build a little memory around it.

    Molly Yeh is the star of Food Network’s series Girl Meets Farm. She rose to national prominence with the debut of her memoir, Molly On The Range: Recipes and Stories from an Unlikely Life on a Farm. Her cookbook was selected by the New York Times as one of the fall's top releases of 2016 and was the winner of the International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP), “Judge’s Award.” The book was also selected by NPR as one of their “Great Reads of 2016.” In March 2018, Molly followed the release with Yogurt by Short Stack Editions, featuring recipes dedicated to an ingredient she calls “the duct tape of food.”. This year she anticipates the publication of her newest cookbook entitled Home is Where the Eggs Are.

    She is also the creator of the lifestyle food blog, www.mynameisyeh.com, which has been recognized by Saveur and Yahoo as “Food Blog of the Year.” Molly has been featured by the New York Times, Food & Wine, Bon Appetit, and New York Magazine, and has contributed to Vanity Fair, Saveur, Condé Nast Traveler, Food52, and The Jewish Daily Forward. She was named to Forbes’ 30 under 30 list for 2017 and Apartment Therapy’s 10 under 40 list.

    Outside the kitchen, Molly is a Juilliard-trained percussionist and has performed with orchestras around the world, in off-Broadway theatre, and as the glockenspielist for the pop-band San Fermin. She lives on a farm on the North Dakota-Minnesota border with her fifth-generation farmer husband and their little flock of chickens.
