Connect - How To Know If He's Really Your Man by Dawn Burnett Excerpt, Interview & Giveaway

Connect - How To Know If He's Really Your Man
by Dawn Burnett


GENRE: Self-Help (non-fiction)



Wellness strategist Dawn Burnett has an impressive track record for helping people unlock better health and greater vitality. Like all of us, however, she has had a life filled with highs and lows. The child of divorced parents and a survivor of abuse, she was in a toxic marriage and then, just after her divorce, was hit by a drunk driver. These events, and the discovery that her son had a life-threatening condition, led her to a wake-up call. Studying to become an alternative medical practitioner to heal her child, she also sought answers on how to heal her own life. Along the way, she charted a course to ultimate wellness on a path filled with valuable lessons, deep wisdom, and insight on a variety of issues—including personal relationships. She recognized that becoming trapped by the toxic emotions of our past can weigh down our spirit and sabotage any chance we have at happiness today or in the future.

The result is Connect, a light but powerful little book that provides humorous yet effective ways to address key issues facing serious relationships. Filled with personal, engaging stories, complemented by captivating illustrations, it reveals: the pitfalls of dating in the digital age; the many ways we unintentionally sabotage our relationships; why we find ourselves choosing mates from the never-ending 'carousel of losers'; and how we judge ourselves—and others—without mercy. The antidote is a simple, empowering plan readers can implement themselves to heal their own hearts, pinpoint their true dreams and desires, and find meaningful and lasting bonds with their partners — whether they have already met or are still looking. This amazing little book is big on success, and will help readers finally attain what they outwardly say they want—without the emotional resistance associated with trying to change their partner.



It has been said that 50 percent of married couples in the United States divorce, and the divorce rate for subsequent marriages is even higher. Most people are surprised by the second part of that statement because they think that they’d learn from the first bad experience, that they’d found a Mr. Wrong disguised as a Mr. Right. Unfortunately, most people just find a carbon copy of Mr. Wrong and find themselves in court again.

Are you one of those women dragging around the over- stuffed suitcase of bad yesterdays into tomorrow? Are you standing there, scratching your head, wondering why your luggage no longer fits in that overhead compartment?

If you are, you need to do some serious weeding out. You need to heal your past before you can move forward—or before you know it your “wheels” will start popping off .

You also need to carefully consider the men with whom you might consider dating, and find out what baggage they might be carrying. I once connected with a guy online who had been pursuing me. Many women who have a favorable online chat experience go to what they see as the next step—a face-to-face meeting. I have a policy, however, to talk on the phone with a guy before I meet him. This situation in particular drove home why I do this, thank goodness!

Where are you from? I am originally from New York and currently live in Orlando, FL

Tell us your latest news? My latest news is I have become so passionate about connecting and shifting people into a new level of awareness that I am working on events to take globally and I have dedicated my Huff Post platform to helping people connect and shift so they can live the life their heart desires.

When and why did you begin writing? I began writing in the early 2000s when I contributed to a senior newspaper, but full onset writing was in 2011 when I wrote and published my memoir “True Confessions Of The Heart, Out An Abundance Of The Heart The Mouth Speaks.”

I first considered myself a writer when I released my memoir and then I turned to blogging, then contributing writer for the Huff Post, followed by a co-author opportunity with Jack Canfield on his The Road To Success Vol. 2, which hit the Amazon Best-Seller list, and now Connect, How To Know If He’s Really Your Man

What inspired you to write your first book? I knew I wanted to write my memoir True Confessions of The Heart but what catapulted me to write it was the unexpected death of my mother. When she died just 6 short weeks after I walked the stage receiving my honors degree in Alternative Medicine it accelerated my passion to want to help others. I remember sitting on the resort patio just before my graduation telling my mother she had to let go and heal the memories of the past or due to holding these toxic thoughts in her cells she would get sick and cancer would form. Sure enough she died with cancer.

What would you like my readers to know? I would like readers to know that I am passionate about helping people especially with the understanding of how to love and accept themselves so they can find the right partner.
