Presentation:  "It's Game Time! Life Lessons from a Former Pro Female Football Player" 


As a former full-tackle football player in a professional national women's league, Jan's story inspires listeners to believe that they truly CAN do anything if they want it badly enough. They’ll be inspired to plan for their futures and follow their dreams as they go on the roller-coaster ride of the unbelievable story of Jan Spence. She shares her journey of acknowledging her dream of playing professional football, taking advantage of opportunity even though she wasn't prepared, and pushing through fear and obstacles to make her passion a reality. Participants will laugh at her challenges and be filled with inspiration as they acknowledge their own aspirations for the future. Jan will inspire the audience to nourish their plans for the community and watch them grow.  In this interactive session, the audience will apply what they learn so that they walk away with a plan to act on their own vision for success.

Participants will be empowered with a new perspective, ready to "tackle" their exciting journey ahead with:

  • A new perspective of taking ownership of their role in their organization.
  • Tools to combat the fear that holds them back from pushing out of their comfort zone.
  • Having identified and been inspired to take steps to grow personally and professionally.
