A little bit about Haley Marguerite
If Tony Robbins and Pippi Longstocking were one person… it might just be me!
I’m Haley Marguerite — like Tony, I inspire people beyond their limitations, and like Pippi, I never let anything shake my self-belief, especially in my dream-come-true of myself as the creator of a blockbuster Kids’ Adventure & Travel Book series!
As a children’s book author: I’ve sold over 15,000 copies of Charlie Takes an Adventure, Charlie Takes an Adventure to Massachusetts, Charlie Takes an Adventure to New York and Charlie Takes an Adventure to the Moon!
As a motivational speaker: I’ve keynoted for Girl Scout events and 25+ Rotary Clubs online and in person, including the Rotary Club of Siesta Key, Florida, which selected Charlie’s books to be distributed across multiple counties in the Books4Kids program and Keller Williams Realty and Investments agents of Boca Raton!
When I graduated college in 2013, I had no idea I’d end up as a penguin’s travel agent/author of Charlie the Penguin and Beyond Tour. Kids ages 4 to 9 (pre-K to 4th grade) love Charlie, the über-curious penguin from Antarctica who sojourns in style to Florida, Massachusetts, New York and the Moon in Books 1 to 4 of the series. Said one elementary school teacher, “As my second grade class heard Charlie Takes an Adventure, they were engaged with the unique Florida storyline. These eight-year-olds wanted more Charlie book adventures and even asked if it would become a movie!”
Now more than ever, children will benefit from Charlie’s adventures in the other fun places with Charlie— the books teach fun facts, while also helping students to locate famous, must-know historical landmarks. The series also aids in improving children’s imagination and creativity through traveling with Charlie! Students also learn essential life lessons about friends, family, and the meaning of “home” along the way. Everyone has dreams like this! As such, I can help inspire your students to go for their dreams—and I’d love nothing more than to be of service in this way.
In 2021, I wanted to change the way the industry looked at books and it’s authors. I didn’t want to have the same “momma bear” “papa bear” book. I wanted to create something outside-of-the-box and would have a lasting impression on our society. That’s when “A Book and Beyond” was born-shaping the way children treat one another, with my FREE anti-bullying programs -helping to reduce the number of bullies in schools and communities all over the world. It’s a lifetime mission that I have dedicated myself to. But, just in the short time I have launched the programs my company has gained the notoriety from 10 big name partnerships!
As a self-sparking entrepreneur: I have launched Haley Marguerite Publishing, a self-publishing company in December of 2022, helping fellow authors have their story told. I have helped mentor from the early age of five years old up until 85 years old. My positive happy-go-lucky personality has been a blessing for both myself and my clients having a very close family-like business. (this was always something that was very important to myself.)
As a philanthropist, I center my events around giving back. It’s who I am and it’s important to me. Christmas of 2020, I stumbled upon a donation only Resturant located in Brewton, Alabama called Drexell and Honeybee’s while surfing online. I couldn’t believe what I had read and was compelled to give a monetary donation, books and meet Lisa Mcmilan the founder in person. I drove from Boca Raton, FL 13 hours to meet the woman behind such vision and shack her hand.
If you are ever have the chance, you MUST visit her Resturant and her Lisa I sent you. I fell in love with the town – the people are so charming and really go out of their way to make you feel at home. It’s a place that you would see on the Hallmark Channel.
