Issue 1, 2012 is out now!

We are so excited to be launching our Inaugural issue of Golden Pen Magazine™.  Suffice to say, we have broken open a bottle of bubbly and I hope you will join us in sharing in our joy now that the proverbial baby is out of the oven!

Firstly, thank you so much to all the fabulous contributors who have helped to make this issue so inspiring, full of WISDOM and a resource that will have relevance for years to come.  I think you will agree that Jessica Smith looks amazing on our cover and a very special thank you to Michael Vanderzanden from Studio Classique.  Love your work, Michael and the fact that you make the women you shoot feel like a princess by keeping it fun and making them feel so special.

“The beauty of wisdom is that it’s value is like gold; it increases with time and it is with this heart space and mindset that we present to your our first issue,” says Publishing Editor, Hayley Solich.

As you read the pages of Golden Pen Magazine™ I ask that you open your heart to hear wisdom whispering to your soul.  Be it clues on how to find your flare in your home as shared by Interior Stylist, Karen Creith or discovering what your relationship with money is like as shared by Financial Educator, Christine Camp or even the simplicity of challenge from Aspiring Writer, Debbie Chilton about giving, I know that wisdom will be beckoning to you and it’s value is more precious than gold.

So what exactly can you expect to find in our Inaugural issue?
