If you’ve ever wanted a different, better outcome to this Coronavirus pandemic, then do we have the game of life and how to play it show for you.

Today I’ll be talking with Joel Fotinos, author, minister, and expert who has been in the publishing world for over 30 years, most recently with St. Martin’s Essentials, working with hundreds of books, and the new thought movement, including the classic by Florence Scovel Shinn, “The Game of Life and How to Play It

And that’s just what I want to talk with him about today, about how we receive back what we put into this world, and what in the world that has to do with the Coronavirus and how we’ll heal as an individual and as a planet.





Joel Fotinos is vice-president and publisher at Tarcher/Penguin, and the co-author of THE PRAYER CHEST, which Judy Collins called “a wonderful and enlightening book.”  The book was a Family Circle “Book of the Month,” as well as endorsed by Christiane Northrup, M.D., Julia Cameron, Catherine Ponder, and many others.  Fotinos has also written or co-written several other books, including MULTIPLY YOUR BLESSINGS, A LITTLE DAILY WISDOM, and THE THINK & GROW RICH WORKBOOK; his books have over 120,000 copies in-print, and have been published in 14 languages. Fotinos has been featured in many magazines and newspapers, and was given Science of Mind magazine’s first “Spiritual Hero of the Year” award.

A licensed minster with the Centers for Spiritual Living, Fotinos travels the country giving talks and workshops on spirituality and inspiration.  He also speaks once a month and gives on-going classes at the Center for Spiritual Living North Jersey.  Fotinos has narrated a dozen audiobooks, including the nationally best-selling audio editions for Napoleon Hill’s THINK AND GROW RICH and THE LAW OF SUCCESS, and he is the male voice for Penguin Classics’s “Poems By Heart” and upcoming “Bible Verses By Heart” apps.  He consults with businesses and individuals with his Soul Compass work, to help them create success, fulfillment, and purpose.
