What is Anxiety?
A Mind Pioneer is a person who visualizes building new ideas in the depth of their mind’s imagination.
Mind Pioneers think outside-the-box in order to journey into the realm of the unknown--to dream, create, build, and curate something that has never existed before. From music to art, invention to scientific theories, business to strategy, interior design to architecture, medical advancements to literature—there are no limits to innovation when pioneering in the mind! These people harness the power of their minds by using their intuition by following their inspiration, passion, and curiosity to create innovation that change the world.
Mind Pioneers follow their inspiration, imagine new possibilities, unleash new ideas, and are unafraid to trust the vision that they hold in their mind fuelled by the persistence to bring it to life. They employ a growth mindset and view every experience as an opportunity to learn and grow.
With this book, it is Kristin's hope to share the magnificent power of the mind that lives within each of us to infuse children with empowerment, inspiration, and the belief that they can create powerful change in the world.

Praise for Anxious Annie Unwinds Her Mind
"Magnus O’Meere, Mind Pioneer is truly a delight to read. The rhyming of the words mimics the rhythm of the story as we witness Magnus O’Meere’s transformation from a distracted dreamer into a deep thinker who teaches others. I love how author, Kristin Pierce, so deftly captures the frustrations of a child who can’t quite seem to stay within the classroom’s strict lines. Watching Magnus develop and grow within the pages of this book is fulfilling and hopeful, to both children and adults.
The whimsical illustrations are playful and colourful, and so nicely complement the words. They keep perfect pace with the story.
Magnus O’Meere, Mind Pioneer is a wonderful story to read to your kids if you want to encourage them to keep being exactly who they are. The sweet takeaway message is that in time, they will discover how their own wonderful THEM-ness can make the whole world a better, more complete place."

"I absolutely love the message in the book Magnus O'Meere, Mind Pioneer. This book highlights how we as parents and educators should support children in quieting their minds to harness their thoughts and dreams. The references to some of the most brilliant minds from our past, offers validation that being a "dreamer" can make some of the biggest impacts in history.
“Have an inquiring mind and make your own rules. Many mind pioneers were once thought to be fools. But they shattered the limits and blazed their own trails. You can’t change the world if you’re too scared to fail." Wow, what a powerful message of perseverance! This book is a unique and great read for all ages!"

"I have used Kristin’s books in my classroom to teach growth-mindset and intuition. I was so excited to read her newest creation, Magnus O’Meere, Mind Pioneer! She has created another wonderful book. I love how Magnus overcomes a challenge with the help of mindfulness, (something I also use regularly in my classroom). I also love how Kristin incorporated famous inventors. Not only will children see Magnus overcome challenges, but they will also be introduced to real people who worked hard, persevered, and created the inventions that we use today!"
