Afterall, you are a walking brand. In this presentation, you will learn the 10 best practices necessary to bring your best self- personally or professionally, to any event or occasion. Learning the skill of making a positive impression is paramount in building relationships and success!

The Four Rights of Success

Hear Jodi speak about the four rights of success, and how she utilized them to build her own nonprofit and create a successful career.

From Misery to Hope Loves Company

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.

Finding Your Way to Success

We are all on a powerful journey that we call life. Each day is made up of moments and decisions that either propel us further in our purpose and happiness or leave us asking questions and doubting our actions. Now more than ever, we are seeking meaning and purpose, however, we must know our why to truly reach our full potential. Do you know your why when you begin each day?

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.
