Learning the skill of making a positive impression is paramount in building relationships and success!

The Four Rights of Success

Turning Lemons into Lemonade

When ALS took her late husband Kevin in 2001 at the age of 36, Jodi knew that her life had changed forever.  She could either wallow in her grief or use that experience for good. As a result, Jodi was inspired to create Hope Loves Company, the only non profit with the unique and specific mission to support children and young adults who have been affected by ALS. This powerful presentation follows Jodi's journey from widowhood to wonderful as she inspires a mission, a documentary, a TEDx and healing.

Jodi discusses the five steps of owning your journey and living with purpose, and reviews five practical and insightful steps that can be implemented immediately to get from where you are to where you want to be in life.

Jodi O'Donnell-Ames

"Before signing on with Jodi as my empowerment coach, my life was plagued with self-doubt. I’m a recent college graduate and found that the interview process wasn’t going in my favor because I lacked confidence in my capabilities. With Jodi's expertise, I now feel the most confident and empowered that I have ever felt in my life. She has truly transformed the way I approach situations and has taught me the foundations of living a happier and more sustainable life!"
