Brittany Bexton

Brittany Bexton was placed in our paths for a reason. Brittany was involved with professional theater for years before moving to Nashville in 2011 to become a full time touring and recording artist. What makes Brittany’s performances compelling isn’t her technique, but the passion and life she brings to the stage. Her intuitive heart for music and the way she connects to the story and passion of a song is captivating. Brittany believes that music and writing have a greater purpose to bring joy, laughter, connection and hope. With her musical talent and acting abilities, we are excited to have Brittany on board as a part of the production. Congratulations to Brittany!

About the Book

You are a leader, a success in your chosen field. You have the position and the money and the things that you always believed would make you happy. And yet…there’s something missing, isn’t there? Maybe it’s a half-buried sense that there should be something else, something more, that you need in your life. Maybe it’s a lingering feeling that the way you are doing things isn’t optimum and there’s something still holding you back. Maybe it’s your own feelings of unhappiness or dissatisfaction with the shape your life has taken

These feelings are common. So common, in fact, that many people believe that this is simply what being an adult means but that’s not true. There is a deeper satisfaction in life, there is true understanding and there is a way to unlock your true purpose.

In the vein of Patrick Lencioni’s “business fables,” this book is an exciting hybrid of fiction and factual steps designed to start you on a journey towards that greater purpose—if you are willing to take the first step. The Way of the Quiet Warrior™ is an experience unlike any other. Are you ready for your adventure to begin?
