Positive publicity for The (R)evolution of Love!
The (R)evolution of Love was published on Valentine’s Day 2019 and since then it has received loads of publicity in many newspapers and magazines. This blog post gives a quick view to different kind of articles published in the first few weeks after Valentine's Day. I am truly glad that the book’s positive approach to breaking up is really inspiring people now!
As all journalists naturally want to pick their own favourite view to my book, the articles raise different topics from the book or even from my own personal life after divorce. Please click on the links to some of those online articles published in Febryary-March 2019 (see below).
The (R)evolution of Love has 374 pages and includes 57 different mental exercises, including e.g. logical mind tests, mental visualization, practicing intuition and meta skills, investigating the reader’s own beliefs and emotions, creating strategy on the reader’s own life values and achieving targets in a better relationship or in an excellent breakup. Several mental training techniques and the touching, honest, even harsh and partly humorous true stories of the interviewed persons help the reader to look at his/her own situation from fresh perspectives and break free from his/her own mental straitjacket of restrictive beliefs, mixed signals and confusing emotions which often bring unnecessary burden on so many people around the world. The book helps the reader to face his/her own self and also his/her companion more openly and lovingly. The book is about both self-compassion and understanding different personalities and ways of life.
And because some newspapers acknowledge both my book and my personal background as a Finance Director and as an ex-wife who still shares the home with his ex, so let's open up that personal part also shortly. So, I am a certified NLP Trainer (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) on solution-focused mental training techniques and an experienced business leader of a large organization in an international, publicly listed corporation. I am enthusiastic about development of self-leadership skills and I love both logical modelling and research of people’s values, beliefs and intuitive decision making. Three years ago I divorced from my 21-year marriage and still today with my ex-husband we share happily our home, two summer cottages and common friends as well as raise our three boys in good understanding. Through my own experience and the interviews of dozens of happily-divorced people I want people to see the positivity in their relationships and also in splitting apart, and give my readers inspiration on living a happier life with their spouses – either in marriage or after it.
So, what kind of articles have been posted in papers or online in the past few weeks?
First there was a six-page article in the popular women's magazine Me Naiset. Then the major newspaper Iltalehti published 2 articles (the first article of 1 page and the 2nd article of full 2 pages) in their weekend prints and additionally 3 online articles with more than 2 million readers! Links to online articles:
- Iltalehti 25.2.2019 "Three signs showing that a break up is the right solution - Kati Niemi divorced and encourages also others for the possibility of breaking up" = 3 merkkiä siitä, että ero on oikea ratkaisu - Kati Niemi erosi ja kannustaa muitakin eron mahdollisuuteen
- Iltalehti 28.2.2019 "Do you want a closer relationship? Take tips from how to have a good friendship" = Haluatko läheisen parisuhteen? Ota ystävyyden opit käyttöön
- Iltalehti 4.3.2019 "Kati shares her home, cottage and summer holiday trips with her ex: 'Many believe this wouldn't work'" = Kati jakaa eksän kanssa asunnon, mökin ja etelänlomat: ”Moni ajattelee, ettei tämä toimi”
Then the newspapers Leppävaara and Tapiola/Westend had me on their covers and wrote an article about "a finance director who turned into an author". The article was published also online here: "Talousjohtaja Tapiolasta teki kirjan: Parempi parisuhde vai erinomainen ero?"
In early April the magazine Sielunpeili raised the topic in the cover - just like the magazine Me Naiset.
