Got a Crisis? Investigative Journalist to make House Calls across US and Canada; She's raising funds for her Crisis Brainstorm Tour

News Release: August 1, 2016

"When facing a crisis in which we feel anxious, angry, or powerless, many otherwise-brilliant people can see only two options: stay or go; attack or be silent. But when we have a wide array of do-able options to choose from, we feel more confident, powerful and optimistic, and ultimately... victorious." Andrea Reynolds

[Erie PA] Andrea Reynolds will tell you she's an inquisitive, lateral thinker, not a therapist nor a lawyer. She believes there are at least ten options for every challenge. She sees adversity as an opportunity to be creative, sometimes an opportunity for an adventure. Like this...

Reynolds isn't well know in the US, having spent her adult working life in Canada, and clients are reluctant to come to her, which means little income. So, by fall or winter 2016, she and her two cats will travel by camper van to where she is most needed. If an organization invites her to speak on crisis resolution in a city, she will stay there and work privately with individuals.

Many will be unable to pay her, so she's raising
$200,000 to support her Crisis Brainstorm Tour. She tried to raise money by selling her home with 21 standard and creative options; #22 is a $10,000 finders fee offered to anyone who brings her a buyer who closes on the property for $115,000 or better. Nineteen months later, she is inviting sponsorships while selling her books and personal possessions (furniture, jewelry, family heirlooms and Civil War era artifacts).

Reynolds, author of two-dozen how-to titles including
Jump Start Your Creative Genius, offers clients crisis advice and hands-on justice services for new clients.

CRISIS ADVICE: Corporate brainstorming, email and phone advice, private advice over lunch, by direct tweet, house call, office visit, budget overhaul, on retainer, and group brainstorming, seminars and lectures.

JUSTICE SERVICES: Victim impact statements, money recovery, personal advocacy, protest or mercy letters, "missing" person locating, what-went-wrong interviews, go-between service, missing information research, mediation, conflict resolution, business troubleshooting.

Reynolds has had plenty of experience with crises herself: isolation, bullying, exclusion, domestic abuse, homelessness, home invasion, death threats, school shooting, denial of constitutional rights, loss of family, financial loss, theft, betrayal, etc., all of which has given her great resilience and empathy for the conditions of others.
