What is The Snowball Effect?
“The snowball effect” is often a figurative term for a process where something starts off relatively insignificant and grows into something much larger. A snowball requires attention and hard work upfront to jump start its natural motion. As it begins to roll and gain momentum, less outside force is needed — it grows at a faster pace, becoming powerful and nearly unstoppable!
This is a book about experiencing the great in you—the great that has been there all along. There is no time like the present to begin building positive momentum. You are worth it.

“Kristin Barton Cuthriell’s book, The Snowball Effect, will make every single one of us think back in our lives and recognize the value of our experiences and the ‘ripple effect’ that those experiences had on others.
“Over thirty years ago, when my wife and I first took our trip to the Philippines with the oldest of our five children, Brigette, we never realized what that would create. However, it was that graphic moment of having to turn away 250 children who would never receive care for their facial deformities that led to the creation of Operation Smile. The ripple effect of that experience has led to the care of over 200,000 children. 200,000 children who would have lived in isolation. For each of them that moment took them from hopelessness to possibility. Those similar moments also transformed the lives of well over 5,000 medical volunteers who today are better people because of their volunteer experience.
In reading this book, you will begin to realize in a much more concrete way, the decisions that you make will have a ‘snowball effect’ on hundreds of people’s lives that you may not even know today. Enjoy it. Live it. Share it.”
