Harness the Power of Your Words to Change Your Mind, Your Choices, and Your Life.

Local author and businesswoman Mary Shores shares her powerful roller-coaster journey to become an author and motivational speaker. Through her journey, Mary has discovered many actionable and pragmatic lessons, which she now brings to you. She’ll teach you how to change your story, become who you really are, and take action to achieve your dreams. It’s time to stop saying “I can’t,” and start doing.

A book-signing will take place after this free presentation. Her book, Conscious Communications, is your guide to creating a life in alignment with your dreams and desires. With thoroughly tested exercises, research, advice, and personal stories, you will begin to experience the tremendous impact of words and how to utilize the right ones to unleash and unlock the power to create a new reality.

Mary Shores' career as an author, speaker, and entrepreneur, has focused on generating positive and pragmatic solutions for people who are freaking out. Mary blends personal experience with her extensive knowledge of neuro-science and human behavior to guide businesses and individuals to defeat the freak-out and create their ideal life.

Although this is a free event, we recommend pre-registration to ensure you have a seat. Even if you can't make the workshop, feel free to stop by at 3pm to meet author Mary Shores and have her sign your copy of Conscious Communications. Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the shop.
