KITCHENER, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 7, 2009) -

Editors Note: There is a photo associated with this Press Release.

Launching nationwide in the month of December, MOTIVATED is a magazine that aims to inspire readers not only in business but in life. Targeted at readers with some business savvy, the launch issue offers inspired writing from leaders in their respective fields including Deepak Chopra, Patrick Lencioni, Steve Wozniak, Silken Laumann, Phil Town, and Carmine Gallo.

Committed to blending spirituality with business believing there are overlapping universal truths worth exploring, each issue of MOTIVATED will have a binding theme. The two issues previously published by Declan McAndrew Publishing Ltd., under the title, Simple Motivation, featured Will Smith and Bill Clinton on the covers. They explored the topics of happiness and forgiveness.

Don Cherry was selected for the launch issue because, as Publisher Shevaun Voisin explains, "He exudes confidence – the kind of confidence needed to fight his way from a working-class background, through the brawling world of pro hockey to the upper echelons of the coaching fraternity and into the realm of broadcasting where he's become one of the most recognized and respected Canadians of all time. Simply put, he's an inspiration."

"When all is said and done, Cherry's a communicator. He cares passionately about his sport, his country, and the common people, and is never afraid to speak the simple truth. It was fitting to put him on the cover when the theme revolved around the importance of passion and its link to success".

MOTIVATED Magazine is being sold nationally in the business section of Chapters, Indigo and Coles as well as Loblaws, airports and newsstands through Gateway and Hudson News. It has a cover price of $5.95. Howard Schultz, the founder of Starbucks is slotted to appear on the cover of the spring issue exploring the importance of having a vision.

Declan McAndrew Publishing Ltd. is named in honour of Voisin's son Declan; born out of his death, the magazine exists to inspire others to rise to their fullest potential in full recognition that we are only promised today.
