PERSUASION: How To Pitch Your Ideas And Own The Room is a treasure trove of knowledge that provides good insight into navigating the business world and one’s own intrapersonal relationships.

The book develops readers for a new and uncertain world, especially in the age of Zoom calls and remote conversations, by easing readers back into a one-on-one conversation. Mayté Carvalho presents Persuasion as the opportunity for being a true enthusiast of speech and confidence by breaking down the theory of rhetoric into the much more digestible language of everyday use. No more having to look up difficult meanings and assumptions based off of Aristotle's convoluted metaphors, but instead, speaking in a straightforward instance.

Persuasion’s initial release in Portuguese is now translated into English expanding the conventional understanding of corporate conversation into an international interaction from one nation to another presenting a universal reality: You can be confident in delivery.


Mayte Carvalho is a marketeer appearing as an entrepreneur on SharkTank and a winner of Brazil’s The Apprentice Special Edition resulting in her election by GQ magazine-Conde Nast- as one of Brazil’s six great female founders. Mayte is a best-selling author and professor currently serving as the Director of Business Strategy at TBWA\Chiat Day Los Angeles.

Mayte’s best selling book Persuasion: How to Pitch Your Ideas and Win the Room (launched in Brazil) prepares the reader for challenges in communication and expression within the workplace along with personal relationships. With her social media presence of more than 60,000 Instagram followers, Persuasion has topped sales of that of Rich Dad, Poor Dad leading her to continue sharing ideas of Innovation and Communication via social media.


Born in Chapecó, Santa Catarina, Ana Silvani is a Latin-American woman carrying her poetic heart with her while traveling the world. Graduating in Linguistics & Literature at 25 and working as a teacher and storyteller, Ana jumped into the multicultural universe of North-American adventures leading her to the US in 2006.

In her beginning, Ana was the stranger at the weird party of the world eventually developing and increasing the volume of her Brazilian silences over the beats of America’s cultural melting pot helping her origins gain a spotlight in the center stage.

Since then, she has been living in Los Angeles studying Film and Entertainment at UCLA while writing books and screenplays leading to the production of independent films.

Last year, her poem Internet was selected to be part of the book Poetize 2021. Now as the DJ of her own party, Ana fine tunes the linguistic and cultural atmosphere with her poetry book Half Love, Mata(de) Amor giving more life to this party of continued diversity.


Brazilian artist & author, based in Los Angeles. Drica's fascination with art began as a small child. But it wasn't until she moved to California that her art had a jump start. Her aesthetic began to shift, and she found her own ways to interpret the frequencies and the energy around us, enhancing a unique perspective in dynamic strokes, bold colors, and intricate textures.

Drica currently lives and works in Hermosa Beach, Califórnia. Her art is included in public and private collections worldwide.


From childhood, Laura Linn loved to go to the movies. Like many youngsters, she dreamed of one day becoming a successful actor like the stars she followed on the big screen. She started to pursue her dream, first studying Filmmaking in Brazil, her country of birth, and then making her full transition to pursue acting, moving to the United States to study at UCLA and at the two year conservatory program at the prestigious American Academy of Dramatic Arts (AADA) in New York City.

Years later, after a huge amount of hard work, Laura stands on the brink of success and recognition she has been striving for, having worked with award winning directors such as Oscar nominated Darrell Roodt, and having obtained her O1 visa as an actress, a temporary residency visa as an extraordinary talent. Laura has now achieved one of the biggest goals for foreign actors, her Green Card as an alien of extraordinary ability.

Her autobiographical book Into The Furnace is the story of how she followed, and finally began to live, her acting dream.
