Melissa Elias’s mission is to empower women to be true to themselves; to live authentically without apology. This course is for any woman who feels any dissatisfaction with her current life experience and who feels “stuck” to make a change. In this three- hour seminar, you will be provided materials to begin the thought-provoking work of unearthing the “why” of your current life situation and gain clarity on how to move forward. The objectives of the presentation are to establish areas of dissatisfaction (weight, personal relationships, finances), to briefly discuss the “why” to focus on personal responsibility and to set two achievable goals that will move you in the direction of your dreams.
