Hello! I'm Elizabeth and I am the author of the best-selling Hay House book PERCOLATE - Let Your Best Self Filter Through.
I call my book "The little book that will completely change your life."
My book helps people of all ages and levels learn to make lasting changes in their own life and be their best.
I love this graphic as writing a book is one thing.... connecting with others to read and use your book is another!!
I was on the phone yesterday with another author and we were chatting about how noisy it is out there. We are constantly bombarded by people asking us to buy what they have to offer. I often think to my self, "If I hadn't written this book, would I buy it? Would I use it? Do I use my own book daily and moment to moment?"
The answer is confidently yes! I am constantly percolating!
Here is a comment I recently received.
"I absolutely LOVE this book and all that it stands for. Elizabeth Hamilton-Guarino does an amazing job of inspiring positive thinking, self-love and mindfulness in an easy to follow 9 Step, thought-provoking process. This book has been an instrumental foundation of information; guiding me through a complete life style transformation over the past year. This transformation has not only allowed me to loose over 100 pounds, but has also allowed me to find my "Best Self" and has taught me to let my best self filter through into all aspects of my life."
As the founder of The Best Ever You Network, I have found over the years that it is important to touch each life you encounter with grace, compassion and a sense of collaboration, as you never know who needs you and what they are facing in the background that might not be obvious to you in those moments of meeting. I think my book helps us all learn this. It helps us learn mindful and meaningful change that incorporate ourselves and others at the same time and connect us.
PERCOLATE - Let Your Best Self Filter Through guides the reader through a 9-point change process "The PERCOLATE Process" and is written in coffee metaphors. Being your best you in an ever-changing process and so the book is written so you can move though the points back and forth or use one here and there to help. My process helps you implement positive changes to excel in every aspect of your life.

I don’t know about you, but I just really hate feeling my worst. Good isn't often good enough either. I think I’d rather feel and be my best in as many moments of my life as possible and I hope you do as well. Percolate is for those moments when that voice inside of you is urging you to make changes and seek a richer, more fulfilling life
Do you feel like you’ve been searching for something more meaningful, even if you don’t know exactly what it is?
Connecting with our stories
Personally, between writing PERCOLATE - Let Your Best Self Filter Through and this moment as I write, this, my dad has died. Some of my book was about him and his never give up philosophy, which he taught us all, as a stroke survivor from Dec 17, 2004 to Oct 19, 2018.
In 2019, I have had moments of feeling my absolute worst. I joined a club I never signed up for and that is the club for people whose parents are aging or have died. I get it, we’re all aging, we’re not guaranteed another moment and all that self-help stuff you try to keep in your brain to make sure you don’t completely lose it in any moment in grief, but life just isn’t roses, puppy dogs, mantras and perfection 24/7. We want it to be and that’s where the real good stuff happens – in the wanting it to be.
My dad died. I watched him take his last breath. I spent about a month after his death, help my mom who was completely lost and even confused. We all thought she might die right with him since there were married over 40 years. She confessed that she felt like she wanted to die too. It is only the second time in my life where I have seen my mom very lost.
I sat in a parking lot of a Wal-Mart with her while we were waiting for rain to stop and long after the rain had stopped we were still talking about life and what it means and how meaningful it is to even help another person for a moment.
My mom shared with me a story of how during several years while my dad was sick she was extremely jealous of the next door neighbor who seemed to have every blade of grass flowing and growing to perfection even in the strongest winds. One day the neighbor came over and asked my mom if she could take a few things under her care. The neighbor went on to clue my mom in to the fact that the neighbor's life was in fact far from perfect and they were in foreclosure. The house had been all fixed up with all their might to hold their daughter's wedding and that none of the kids knew what was actually happening with their parents. My mom said it was an enormous lesson to her to scratch below the surface. Their relationship continued and it was actually my parents who ended up moving because my dad was too ill for that particular home. However, they have stayed in contact.
In just a moment, you have the power to impact another human being in a positive way.
