Businesswoman, Advocate releases “When Trouble Finds You”


 A Message of Hope in a moving testimonial

 After losing her father at seven, Toni L. Coleman Carter’s life – became a “living hell.” For more than two decades, she hid the scars of physical and sexual abuse, the shame of an attempted suicide, the challenges of being a teen mother, and the granite obstacles of climbing the corporate ladder.  Her ability to overcome those setbacks formed the basis for When Trouble Finds You (RTC Publishing).  A work dedicated to increasing awareness around issues impacting children, while inspiring the human spirit.  When Trouble Finds You invites readers on an emotionally life-changing journey. Although it’s Carter’s frank, journal of hopelessness and redemption – her story ultimately inspires, enlightens and stimulates others to overcome seemingly insurmountable odds. The transparency with which she tells her story may cause some to lose themselves in the realism yet find themselves in the redemption.  The former Deputy Mayor of Hanover Park, IL  is also a mother, wife, outspoken community leader, human resources practitioner, and public speaker.  By sharing her story, Carter reaches out to the hundreds of thousands who find consolation in silence–and gives them courage to find a voice, but not just any voice, their voice. With When Trouble Finds You, Carter is hoping to inspire a generation of young people to take advantage of every opportunity afforded to them. And if they don’t have ANY – to create their own.  When Trouble Finds You is available at Amazon, Barnes & Nobel, Books A Million and through .
