When Lorraine turned 60, she realized if she was blessed to live to be 90, her life was already two thirds over. The weight she had vowed to lose, the health she promised to obtain... lay there in a heap of empty promises.
She dug deep and through many emotional obstacles decided she was 100% responsible for her life. She faced the trauma of her past, learned to forgive others and began her journey to worthiness. She hired a trainer, learned to eat healthy and has now lost a total of 125 lbs.!
In 2018, Lorraine was blessed to host her own radio show on SOB radio which was then picked up by IHeart Radio entitled Never Too Late Ever!
Her zest, enthusiasm and passion are contagious. Lorraine’s mission is to inspire others that it is never too late to make the next chapter of their lives the best chapter ever.

Jackie Simmons, #1 Amazon International Best-selling Author and host of The Woman Entrepreneur Show.
“I suck at sales.” There it is, the unvarnished truth. When Jackie was 16, she learned that sales was not for her. After knocking on countless doors only to head home empty-handed and dejected, Jackie knew that she’d never make any money doing sales and yet, that’s what pushed her into teaching sales now.
Jackie sold herself on the “truth" of that limiting belief for 30 years. That doesn't mean she didn't work at sales. She’s an entrepreneur, sales is what has to happen so she networked her assets off. Attended hundreds of events and gave out thousands of business cards. built up a ton of goodwill and made very little money.
Jackie’s attitude about sales made it easy to get enthusiastic and hard to stay motivated.
And her bank account showed it. And then, a ribbing comment from a friend, changed everything: "Jackie, I have no idea what you do. I think the only reason you have a business is so that you have an excuse to network." and with that, Jackie’s first course: "Confessions of a Networking Junkie" was born.
Don’t get this wrong, it was a journey and along the way Jackie had to learn a few things and thanks to the hundreds of clients who’ve shared the journey with her, that 1-day course became a 4-week course, and then that course became a book that practically wrote itself and then sat, gathering dust for over 2 years. And then, with the support of mentors, Jackie learned to shift what she “knew was true”.
In her own words, Jackie still sucks at what most people call sales, and yet her book, Your Path From Secret To Success, became a #1 Amazon International Best-seller. Jackie learned that what most people call sales, doesn’t work for her, and if it doesn’t work for you, what might work better is learning to sell yourself on yourself.
That’s what Jackie teaches now: sales from the inside out because she’s found that mastering the mindset of sales and money is the fastest path to success. AND, Jackie believes that no one’s journey to success should have to take the 30 years that hers took.
