Motivational Speaker Jannie Pilgrim Launches Illustrated Children’s Multimedia Series

Breakfast For A Prince By Jannie Pilgrim


New York, NY — Jannie Pilgrim has built a brand as a career coach. She has been a keynote fixture at conferences and she has also facilitated lectures throughout the graduate and post-graduate university system. Her passion is empowering individuals to self-evaluate and recognize their strengths, to be proactive and more productive.

In 2013, it was Jannie’s own son who inspired her to write a book that would encourage children to tap into their own potential. Breakfast for a Prince is a 40-page picture book, illustrated by David North and released by Jannie’s own imprint, The Deal Press. This story follows Prince Garrett, named for Jannie’s son, and his loyal companion Zeus. Young readers develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills along Prince Garrett’s quest to find the breakfast of his dreams.

Breakfast for a Prince is the first book in the Prince Garrett series, a series that has already spawned two sing-along songs, “Possible, Everything is Possible” and “The Bullfrog Anthem,” and a game application (app) entitled, “Adventures in Garrett Land” now available on GooglePlay.

“Our children are bombarded with entirely too many negative influences,” says Pilgrim, life coach, career coach, and proud mommy of a six-year-old. “In order to sustain a positive self image in our children, especially our little boys, we as parents have to instill in them how great they are and reinforce that message. The earlier we get started, the better.”
