Jan Phillips gave me food and fire for my passion like I’ve never had before.
"In one weekend, Jan Phillips gave me food and fire for my passion like I’ve never had before. I see real and viable ways to change my work and live closer to the life I want. I am transformed, enlivened and profoundly hopeful. I will be making my income in a different way than I was before this seminar. My spirit, heart and brain kept firing all weekend giving me confidence and content for groups and presentations. I also have the know-how now to market and bring my gifts to the people who need what I teach. To anyone considering this workshop: Don’t wait! You can get started NOW to get your new life launched."
