Oh SLAP! offers fresh strategies and practical tools enabling us to make better choices. Because the right decision, at the right moment, can make all the difference. If you are tired of feeling stuck, powerless and over reliant on others. If you want to take control of your life, escape the mental agony that comes with indecision, eliminate regret, excuses and self-limiting beliefs that block your path to greatness — Oh SLAP! is a must-read and the book for you! Born the seventh of eight children, Lori’s grandmother knew there was magic in the number seven and she always assured Lori that she was destined to do great things. Now, Lori takes that same confidence that was instilled in her and passes it on to others. In her book, Lori offers a pathway to a more confident and empowered life. With more than 15 years of human resources experiences, Lori is no stranger to helping people work through various conflicts and other issues. As a result, she has a unique point of view and shares it with others. Lori is a big believer in the importance of perspective, and she feels that one of the first steps to “living a self empowered life” starts with seeing yourself as a victor instead of a victim. She wants people to know that “with every breath, they are making a choice. And it’s that kind of clarity, that is what I’m trying to convey,” says Gentles. Oh SLAP! assist readers in building confidence by teaching them to understand the power of choice. The book is the true definition of a labor of love, and Lori has filled its pages with life changing information. Through her writing, Lori helps people identify what she calls “slap moments”. By her own definition a slap moment is “a moment of sobering clarity, awareness and excellence.” Essentially, these wake up calls serve as turning points to make people realize that it’s time to make a change. Oh SLAP! was written to help people of all ages and all walks of life. Even if confidence and decision making aren’t things you struggle with, there is still something you can learn from reading the book. Lori says, “If we can get people to [move] even one degree in their behavior towards the positive, the collective benefit will be exponential. Let’s all do our part to change the world; to contribute to the betterment of the world. If we can get people to do that through reading the book…then we’re doing a wonderful thing.” With all of the self help books on the market, some people may be wondering ‘what’s so special about this one?’ That’s easy. All of the advice Lori offers in Oh SLAP! is advice she’s already utilized in her own life – and it’s worked. In fact, Lori even reads the book from time to time when she needs some guidance. Not only is Lori’s voice refreshing, but her insight is truly enlightening. She understands how hard life can be, but she also understands that positive change is always possible. When asked if there’s anything she wants to leave readers with, Lori simply said “keep moving forward, you’re never stuck”. Oh SLAP!
