Jean’s most popular programs, customized for you:
Mama Said There’d Be Days Like This
Does your day begin with great promise …until you actually begin it… and then it’s downhill from there? People pull you in many directions at once – often to places you have absolutely no desire to go! Someone at work or at home is getting on your last nerve. You try to appear “totally together” while you’re falling apart. You can’t remember the last time you had a chance to relax, laugh, and catch your breath. If any of this sounds familiar, this program is definitely for you! In this fun-filled session based on Jean’s book by the same title, you’ll laugh while you learn how to handle life’s challenges with wisdom and humor, energy and insight, courage and common sense.

I Already Took a Pain Pill, So Why Are You Still Here?
Have you ever been tempted to ask that question of a difficult person in your life – at work or at home? Jean blends humor with practical strategies to deal with difficult people and reduce conflict in your life. She will reveal the tactics difficult people use to manipulate the rest of us to get what they want. Then she will share five strategies for dealing with them – including her “Secret Southern Strategy” – for which she has become famous! (It’s not illegal, and you won’t get in trouble for using it!) Have fun while you learn how to deal with difficult people – without becoming one.

Finding Balance in a Hurried, Harried, Hectic World
Life balance really isn’t about what goes on outside of you, but what goes on inside. Jean gives you a plan to make your life more joyful, more peaceful and less stressed. When it comes to re-balancing your life, you can choose to feel powerful or powerless. But there is seldom a circumstance in which you are completely powerless… unless you choose NOT to take action. At the end of the day you must respect yourself, believe that you’ve made good choices, and be satisfied that you did the best you could do. Jean guarantees that you will laugh while you learn how to find balance, bring more JOY into your life, and take care of yourself in mind, body, heart and spirit.

Have Yourself a Stress-Free Little Christmas
“The holidays” evoke feelings of excitement, anticipation and joy… plus added stress, not enough time and not enough money. You’ll laugh until your sides hurt as Jean shares her hilarious holiday stories and ideas to approach the holiday season with a new sense of priorities. Based on personal stories from her book, “Mama Said There’d Be Days Like This,” Jean offers a variety of “gifts” you can give yourself – during the holidays and throughout the year – that can change your outlook on life. And they don’t cost a dime!
“You were more than a delight at our Women’s Health Foundation event. You were fabulous! Your practical advice was tempered with just the right amount of humor and motivation. And you were flexible and easy to work with – a real lifesaver.”

Clean Out “the Junk Drawer” of Your Life
Most of us can admit to having at least one junk drawer somewhere – at work or at home – crowded with things we don’t need but can’t bear to throw away. Our minds contain a “junk drawer” too – filled with self-defeating attitudes, beliefs and behaviors that make us doubt our talents and abilities and keep us from reaching our personal and professional best. In this lively and fun-filled session Jean weaves her magic of humor and stories to help you get rid of “junk drawer thinking” and redirect your energy to concentrate on the people and things that matter most.
“I went to your keynote tired and worn out, and left with a bounce in my step and a smile in my heart.”
