As an on-line columnist, Amir serves as the National Jewish Issues Examiner and the National Self-Improvement Examiner. She also continues to work as a journalist. Currently you can see her work in the four Social Media Magazines and recently in Writer's Digest Magazine
As a book editor, Amir also has a proven track record. One of her clients' books (Enlightened Leadership) was self-published and then purchased and re-released verbatim by Simon & Schuster (Fireside); the book has sold over 230,000 to date. Another (Radical Forgiveness) won the 1998 Writer's Digest Self-Published Book Award (Inspirational category), went on to sell over 115,000 copies, and recently was purchased by Sounds True. Her clients' book proposals regularly get them contracts with agents as well.
Amir teaches workshops, teleseminars and classes on how to get published and become an author. She also speaks to organizations, writing groups and at conferences on topics related to writing, getting published, building platform, blogging, blogging books, boosting business with a blog and a book, and realizing the dream of becoming a published author. She works with individual aspiring authors and entrepreneurs not only on their manuscripts but how to get their books and other products written most efficiently and on staying inspired as they maneuver their way through the sometimes long and arduous path to becoming published. She also helps them turn their passion and their soul purpose into printed products
Amir also speaks and writes about self-improvement, human potential, and practical spirituality. She is the former regular holiday and spirituality expert on Conversations with Mrs. Claus, a weekly podcast heard in more than 90 countries and downloaded by 130,000 listeners per month. She is a certified rebirther, a trained Voice Dialogue facilitator and currently is working on her life coaching certificate. Although she often speaks and writes from a Jewish perspective, her work spans religious lines and is pertinent to people of all faiths and spiritual traditions.
In all she does, Amir focuses on helping people live their lives fully and manifesting their desires -- whether those desires look like written products or something entirely different. She sees herself as an "Everywoman" whose struggles and successes are not unlike anyone else's. Therefore, she writes, speaks and teaches from a place of knowing that what has worked for her will at least provide others with a starting place from which to find what works best for them.
Amir lives in the Santa Cruz Mountains above Los Gatos, CA.
