In this talk, Ann looks at what it takes to be “thriving.” She shares the elements needed for resiliency and bouncing back. Beyond surviving, thriving is learning to be alive at every magical moment, connected to the world, living in the present. It helps you live authentically, lovingly, and to be genuine. No matter what you’ve experienced, you can THRIVE. Thriving is all about living in the NOW.

How to be an Unconventional Woman… at any Age, Stage and Under Any Circumstance. (great for Women’s conferences)
