Here’s the promo from his website:

Kathleen Hanover is a Go-Giver certified speaker and marketing expert whom life has buffeted for a few years. She has weathered the storm (which doesn’t mean there isn’t still storm damage), and she is rebuilding. She says her motto is, “I spread good news that improves peoples’ lives.” She does that with public relations services, marketing strategy, public speaking, and coaching/training, all delivered in alignment with the 5 Laws of Stratospheric Success. Our conversation will focus on how she managed to keep going through the difficult times and how now, after significant loss, she uses that to help others. You won’t want to miss this one.

“When life hands you lemons…” goes the old saying. But it takes more than lemonade, or even margaritas, to deal with life. Kathleen has confronted the question of what matters. You will benefit from hearing what she has learned.
