Positive Journey Through Divorce 

My book, Love Never Goes Away, is a journey through positive divorce. Divorce doesn’t have to be the end of the world nor the end of your relationship. It’s just different. It doesn’t mean that your family is broken, it simply means that it has changed and it will evolve just as you will and he will. Throughout the process of writing this book, I relied heavily on positive self-talk. I never wavered in the belief that I will love ...even when the other doesn’t love me back. On our wedding day, we promised we would love each other through good times and bad. Not that we will love only under the one condition that they will love us back. This unwavering love was not only for my ex-husband and children's sake, but most importantly, it was to keep loving myself through it all. Those who attend this session will leave with up to ten tips on how to approach divorce positively and will focus on self-accountability and self-care in the process. A book signing will follow the conversation.


You are Your Brand and Your Brand Is You

Whether you believe it or not, the way you present yourself is sending a huge message to the world. It’s also directly correlated to the money you will receive for services rendered. "You are Your Brand and Your Brand Is You” is an exploration in the concept that what you wear affects your surroundings, your productivity and, ultimately your bottom line. Knowing yourself and expressing yourself through fashion is NOT superficial. It’s real and the quicker you adopt this perception the quicker your bank account will see a change.. for the better! Catherine demonstrates this notion with a fun interactive presentation of Fashion101 and simple "getting to know yourself" workshop.
