To help you with your journey to success four exciting women who are experts on topics of interest to women will be speaking during Virtual Woman's Day™ taking place on March 15th

Here's the lineup:

10:00 AM Eastern Time:
Mindy Gibbins-Klein, The Book Midwife® will share her program, "Your Message, Your Magic"

No matter what kind of work you are doing, chances are you have come up against competition and you’ve realized that you need to stand out from the crowd. Not only do you feel you need to be the best, but you also need to communicate that clearly to your market.

One of the best ways to communicate your message to your market is by writing and publishing books, e-books, articles and blogs, and by speaking to relevant audiences. Building credibility, creating opportunities and producing an income stream are all reasonable objectives for business people aspiring to write and speak about their subject. Indeed, we have seen a real increase in the number of books being published, as well as online and offline articles and blogs. Are they all reaching their objectives? Mindy Gibbins-Klein (The Book Midwife ®) doesn’t think so. In fact, she believes that the message can get lost or even hurt a business owner’s reputation when it is delivered poorly.

In this fascinating and interactive talk, Mindy shows us how to unlock the secrets of powerful and authentic communication. She also explains why it is not enough to just ‘get a book into the market’, as so many people seem to be doing these days.

Each of us has a special message to share with the world, and there is room for everyone. The ‘magic’ comes from getting that message in the right format at the right time, for the right group of people. And you will learn how to do just that in this thought-provoking session!

Mindy Gibbins-Klein is a dynamic ball of energy, igniting every person she comes into contact with. She became a sales trainer and coach in 1988 and since then has helped thousands of people to improve their skills and motivation.

Having been exposed to positive mental attitude material at an early age, she argues that being positive is not an American idea but rather a state of mind every person deserves and can achieve. After hearing Mindy speak, many people feel inspired and empowered to start making things happen in their lives and the lives of those they care about.

Best known as The Book Midwife ®, Mindy passionately promotes the idea that all books deserve to be written and published, and she gets great satisfaction from helping people stop talking about it and start writing. Mindy is a popular speaker, both here in the UK and abroad. Each year, Mindy speaks to hundreds of people on the subjects of writing, publishing and impact, challenging audiences to commit to and communicate their life’s purpose.

This is going to be a fun, interactive session with Janice "dishing out fat-free, calorie-free, carb-free, guilt-free heaping helpings of divine diet inspiration!"

Weight loss artist*, Janice Taylor, most certainly did not wake one morning with a smile on her face and enthusiastically say, "Whoopee, I'm fatter than ever. I'll go on a diet. This will be fun!"No. She rolled out of bed, pulled up her size XXL elastic-band pants and said, "Oh my, even these are tight. I must stop the fat monster from further multiplying before HE takes me over entirely." She prayed for guidance.

What is a Weight Loss Artist™??? You ask? A Weight Loss Artist is someone who makes art about food instead of eating it and loses weight in the process. Janice permanently removed over 50 pounds of excess weight five years ago.

Hope to see you there!
