Comments from attendees:

Mary Schmid, Business Coach, Your Brilliant You:
I attended Jean’s presentation to WIN and found it to be fabulous, fun, and educational.   She takes a very broad and complex topic of marketing and succinctly breaks it down to 7 simple steps that was easy to follow. The most important message she delivered was that of strategy before tactics.  As women business owners we can easily get caught up in the web of actions and doing what others tell us to do, which gives us  no results and eventually giving up. Jean clearly shows us that strategy drives the marketing plan.  And when we commit to taking daily action in alignment with the plan, we can get results!

Teresa Thomas, Director of WIN (Women in Networking):
Attendees have been commenting on how valuable it was and that you are a great speaker.

Laura Madden, Laura Madden Lifestyle, LLC:
THANK YOU Jean Hanson! YOU are an outstanding lady! You really charged us up! I’ve got a lot to learn from you & I’m excited! THANK YOU again for the wisdom, charm, passion, and all that you shared on your own success. I get tickles and goosebumps hearing about the ‘celeb’ status you’ve built on your own and knowing my own journey has just begun.

The workshop includes an interactive activity for each participant to build their own “Marketing Hourglass”.
