Join us on March 30th to hear Melissa Venable, Executive Director of the NoCo Chapter of the American Red Cross and – most important – author of Finding FabYOUlous: A “Self-Help with Sass” Guide to Finding, Celebrating and Capitalizing On the FabYOUlousness that Makes You, YOU

From trainwreck to trainer, Melissa Venable has taken the ride, hit the bottom, done the work and risen from the ashes. She brings the agony and the inspiration from her experiences of wrestling with a life-threatening Anorexia Nervosa diagnosis and battling to escape an emotionally (and sometimes physically) abusive marriage; and delivers a message of hope, empowerment and love to women who long to rediscover and re-ignite their innate FabYOUlousness. As a coach, author and speaker, Melissa is the founder of the popular personal development website, and has been featured on Ewomen Network Radio and in publications including Mind+Body Magazine and Ladies Home Journal. In 2015, she was honored as one of twelve “Colorado Women of Vision” and was featured in Mind +Body Magazine as one of 40 “Colorado Superwomen”. With her first book, Finding FabYOUlous: A Self-Help with Sass Guide to Finding, Celebrating and Capitalizing on the FabYOUlousness that Makes You, YOU, Melissa lays out the steps that she used to turn her life around, and the process that she has created to help countless other women to “ditch the drab and find their FAB”.

The event includes round table discussions, formal & informal networking, specially selected display tables and a breakfast buffet. If you would like to apply for a display table or publicize your business by donating a door prize, contact Ann for details.
