Launch February 17th 2017. Based on the inspirational true story of how one women, turned the adversity known as divorce into a successful business helping other divorcees. Tiffany was much like any other divorcee after her divorce. Being a female entrepreneur or women in business was the last thing she ever thought she was capable of. However, through an inconceivable turn of events, a few tears, many mistakes and a fortuitous dream, she found her divorce 'happier ever after,' may not be what she expected. Creating a place for divorcees,, full of hope and divorce support, became her passion and in turn one of the most inspirational divorce stories ever shared.

'This is a must read for anyone who has had their foundation in life break around them and need inspiration to rebuild. Tiffany's raw, vulnerable and authentic share of her story is appreciated! I seriously was so Addicted to this book and could not put it down once I started it.' -Belinda G Ontario 'My Dreams Recycled is a real page-turner - it's a raw, brave, and inspiring read for anyone who has been through a divorce or found themselves dating again after years of being 'off the market'. Tiffany shares her experience and innermost feelings through the divorce that so many of us can relate to, but not nearly enough people talk about. So much of this reality is swept under the rug and simply not talked about in society, but it was so refreshing reading Tiffany's honest account of what divorce is really like and what it means on all fronts. I found myself laughing, crying, and saying, 'you go, girl!' This is a must-read. Highly recommended.' -Krista W. Contact info- Tiffany Beverlin PR info- 407 353 4845 (more...)

BWW Review: ELF - THE MUSICAL Jingles into OC's Segerstrom Center
by Michael L. Quintos - Dec 26, 2016

Upon learning that part of Segerstrom Center for the Arts' holiday programming this season was to finally bring a national tour production of ELF - THE MUSICAL---the 2010 Broadway stage musical adaptation of the popular Will Ferrell holiday movie---to its stage, I was pretty ecstatic. For the most part, ELF---which performs at SCFTA through January 1, 2017---delivers enjoyable laughs sprinkled here and there throughout its two acts, and even offers up a non-equity cast equipped with lovely singing voices. But while ELF - THE MUSICAL is certainly festive and has lots of smile-inducing moments, overall, I felt the presented production felt surprisingly subdued. While, sure, it had plenty of genuinely funny and heart-warming moments, many aspects of the NETworks Presentations production needed to be much more over-the-top, manic, and downright silly.
