Author of “My ‘Mess of a Marriage’ to My Message and creator of the ‘Historical “40-Year” Prediction Poster‘,  Janice Fletcher,  shared with me a brief overview of her life since I’d seen her last a few years ago. Three-years ago, Janice had just married and was beginning her married life. Little did I know she was NOT living out the marriage she had discussed with me! Long story short, her book details the shattering experience of the sexual and financial deception she experienced within the 10-month marriage. You’ve got check out her book!

Overall, the event fueled the attendees forward in creating their best lives and connecting them with other women as a source of networking and support.
