Part memoir, part self-help book, "Never Broken" concludes with a list of life-lessons or "take-aways," as Jewel calls them that she regards as key tools she has used to overcome adversity.

"By the time the book launches, I hope to have a new website up called JewelNeverBroken.com," she says. "It will have the 20 take-aways that really helped me with my life, and I'll break each of those things down into steps. So I'll have a lot of the 20 takeaways in the book online, just because when I travel the country I'm aware that my story is not unique; many people struggle."

So the book's coming out soon!  Time to keep an eye out for http://www.jewelneverbroken.com/

At the end of the book, I discuss about 20 life changing realizations that became mottos or values I chose to live by, which helped me create change in my life. Something I did not talk a lot about in the book were the daily exercises I invented attached to these, to help me learn new emotional habits. So it is these that I elaborate on and build out, so that all of you might be able to see if they work for you as well as they did for me. I also want to create a community where you can reach out to one another for help, encouragement, and accountability. I wanted to create a community where there are like minded folks from different walks of life who can use one another as resources and to remember we are not alone on our quest to find meaning and purpose and fulfillment in our lives. This is something my EDA's have already done so well, and it is my hope we can build on that sense of community and camaraderie.

Eventually I want this to be an even broader lifestyle portal, where you all can come to watch webinars and speeches on a variety of topics, such as personal growth, but also in other areas such parenting, from the pros and cons of breast feeding to positive discipline for toddlers to education choices for our children. I want it to become a place other authors come to speak, and you can sign up to hear them on a variety of topics. It will be a place I can share alternative herbal options for health issues from allergies to immune boosting to nutrition. Recipes that are good for our taste buds and for our whole health, this will be a portal to things that support a whole human, from sexuality to intellectual pursuits to beauty, to food and wellness and fitness and parenting. All through the lens of making sure each topic is approached with our shared values in mind - for us to maximize and support the whole human. no short cuts - just real solutions that work and are also good for us, our families and our communities. But I need to start somewhere - so it will be by building out the book practices. I will start with 10 of my take aways from the back of the book, and I will also be offering live webinars on each topic that you can join in live and ask questions as I talk about practical ways to apply it to your lives - and we can all practice together.

As much as I loved Jewel's psychological insights in the book (some of what she wrote I learnt in therapy!), I'm not sure about this. Sounds like Jewel wants to be yet another "tuttologo" (jokingly, "expert at eveyrthing"  :lol:).

That's my feeling a little bit as well. And I see a possible market for advertisers as well (beauty products and stuff). I like Jewel's music the most. Her lifestory is nice and it is of coursse also the most important source for her wonderfull music, that's why I like her books also (she is a pretty good writer, that helps too) But I don't think I will follow her along on this one. Off course I'll check it out first, but it doesn't sound very promising for me.

But having said the above: I still really wish her good luck with this project and hope some people will benefit from it (not money-wise).
No longer lend your strenght to that which you wish to be free from.

Yeah, this is the biggest impression I'm getting, too.

"I'm a brand, but I'm a human. I know my wheelhouse and what I'm good at. And I align myself accordingly."
"Loyalty comes from an emotional connection."
"In terms of partnerships, if you don't have real alignment of synergistic values, it's not money well spent."
- Jewel (Marketing to Moms conference on 10/22/14)

I definitely expect lots and lots of marketing partnerships to come out of this - especially if there's a large, positive response to it.  This is what it takes to be a money making celebrity now. :shrug:

Aww, I'm just speculating, y'all.  For all I know, it'll be completely innocuous.  I'm a bit thrown off about the herbal remedy bits up there because I think that stuff is usually a load of bull, but what do I know?

I'm probably just butt hurt.

Truly. This doesn't really appeal to me at all. But yes, I hope it is helpful to some people!

I hope that doesn't mean we need to pack it in?????  :'(

I miss 90's Jewel.  There. I said it.  :grandma:

I think everyone will scamper to the new board because it seems, at least for the moment, that it'll be run by Jewel.  I think the initial reaction will be a big one.  But the majority of the fans (at least what I've observed) are not going to hang on the new-agey ones.  I think this board will continue, because of what it means to he people that come here.  It's like going to your favorite restaurant in that comfy old sweatshirt.  Plus, like what happened on the book thread, I think people will come back here to discuss the ideas presented on the other board.

I'm excited about the new board and the new-agey sections, and the herbal remedies.  I think we put way too many GMOs and chemicals into our bodies.  So, I look forward to that.  Besides, 3 is  good Universal number  :w  I think you need a "new age, fruit cake" emoji.   :hug:

:lol: Jewel's main site has had a few official boards in the past and they don't do well. 

I mean, there's not much free speech on an official board.  Even if there are no rules against saying you don't like something or whatever, it just feels wrong to speak poorly of anything an artist is doing on their own server.  At least I wouldn't.

Boards need to be independent.  It keeps them honest.  ;)

I'll definitely give the new board a try! Just not holding out a ton of hope it will hold my interest.  :rolleyes:  But what do I know....  ;)

Yes. Absolutely.  :hug:

My hope for the new board is that there is input from real people that are doing the things she wants to post about.  People that use alternative healing, and philosophies, meditate, use crystals and so forth.  Not the big names from the New Age community.  I warned ya that I was the resident "new-age, fruit cake"

I'm going to venture to say the parenting board will be the most popular and probably, will stay that way. 

I'm excited, stupidly optomistic, perhaps.  But, I've been on my spiritual path for 20 years (holy crap!  I just did that math in my head  :grandma:) and it's a constant journey.  A few pagan friends and I have a running joke of; "don't drink the kool aid, the sacrificiaal wine is better  :sandy:  "

The History Project Launches, Raises $2 Million in Funding to Fuel Digital Storytelling Platform



OAKLAND, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 4, 2015) - The History Project, a modern reinvention of the time capsule, announced today that it is launching with $2 million in funding led by The New York Times Company, with additional investment by Matter Ventures and Altpoint Ventures, as well as several angels. The History Project connects memories and artifacts scattered over digital, social, and physical worlds for users to create meaningful, collaborative, and interactive life narratives. The company will use the funding to grow its platform, attract additional partners and scale its History Concierge service.

Currently, social media sites capture the here and now, but they lack historical perspective and lose important memories to a fast-moving stream. Unlike other platforms, The History Project combines capturing significant memories and digitizing offline content and cloud storage into a set of mobile and online tools that lets users intelligently collect, curate and collaborate in building personal stories. No other tool on the market today combines multimedia storytelling with technology to provide a platform to collect and bring history to life.

"Every second, we are losing one of our greatest human resources: our history. Millions want to capture their life stories of someone they love, but the process feels too complex, tedious and overwhelming," says Niles Lichtenstein, CEO and co-founder of The History Project. "Our platform tackles this problem by serving as a living time capsule through which anyone can capture and tell stories through a multi-faceted approach with technology at the center."

"Niles and his team are addressing something universal: the desire to preserve and share personal histories," said William Bardeen, senior vice president, strategy and development, The New York Times Company. "By pairing multimedia storytelling tools and technologies like cloud storage, The History Project is providing people with a simple way to create rich records of their lives and those of their loved ones. This investment is attractive to us because it combines strong entrepreneurial leadership with a compelling market opportunity that is consistent with the mission of The New York Times Company."

Founded by a team of entrepreneurs, including CEO Niles Lichtenstein, who developed the idea after rediscovering his late father's record collection, and Ben Yee, Head of Design, who wanted to chronicle becoming a father for the first time, The History Project empowers users to take control of their digital and physical assets and build them into tangible, shareable stories. The platform has earned some notable early adopters, including musician Jewel, who's using it as an authentic way to share her life as a multi-media companion to her autobiography, Never Broken; the HBO film "The Diplomat," which chronicles the life of Ambassador Richard Holbrooke, whose personal history project offers never-before-seen articles, family photos and memories of the man responsible for brokering the Dayton Peace Accords that ended the war in Bosnia; and The Dallas Morning News, which is using the platform to showcase its 130th Anniversary.

"It is rare to see a media start-up deliver an experience that so deeply moves its users in the way that I have seen The History Project move people," said Corey Ford, Managing Partner of Matter Ventures, a start-up accelerator that supports entrepreneurs building the future of meaningful media. "When Niles unveiled a sneak peek of The History Project at our Demo Day, people were moved to tears thinking about how badly they wanted to preserve the history of their loved ones. This team has nailed a deep, unmet need and built a scalable start-up that truly helps people produce meaningful media."

For those wanting personalized support, the History Concierge service is offered at an additional price. The History Concierge is a talented storyteller who works directly with users to build their project or a project for someone they love.

To learn more about The History Project and to start collecting, collaborating and building your own meaningful life narrative, visit http://www.thehistoryproject.com/.

About The History Project
The History Project is the first-of-its-kind modern time capsule that empowers individuals and groups to connect artifacts and memories across media to build powerful experiential stories that transcend generations. It's where life stories are told better and the moments that matter are preserved into a meaningful narrative. Launched in 2015, The History Project is funded by The New York Times Company, Matter Ventures, Altpoint Ventures and angel investors. The History Project is proud to partner with The Dallas Morning News, the HBO film "The Diplomat" about Ambassador Richard Holbrooke, who was responsible for brokering the Dayton Peace Accords that ended the war in Bosnia, and musician Jewel.

If they build yet another board then I don't see it doing well. Just like the last couple of official boards didn't do so well. Or maybe it will since it wouldn't be strictly a Jewel board? Who knows. I'm gonna wait and see what the site is actually like before judging it because it could really be anything at this point. :shrug2:

Dear Jessica,

I posted something looking for Jewel's tour manager 'Anna', but I messed up. It's 'Annie'. Maybe I can find that one. :-p
