MOTIVATION AND CONFIDENCE FOR WOMEN & TEENAGERS

Client Testimonials:

Wow! Your impact has been felt throughout the organization. I have had everyone from front-line call center reps to senior leaders write me and attest to the relevance and impact of your message. You have an amazing story and your ability to tap into the emotions of individuals so that they relate to your story and “feel” your message is an incredible and unique gift. Not only are we more educated, conscious, and perhaps more empathetic, but also more hopeful and resilient because of the role model that we have seen in you.""Outside the corporate realm, you truly made an impact on fathers/mothers/families/human beings today which is really the ultimate and greatest gift of storytelling there is. Please bask in that light this evening- you deserve it!"

-Feedback from FRONTIER 

 

"I’m very thankful for the opportunity to listen to what you have to say. Thank you for the good work you do. The world needs more people like you to get us collectively to the point you mentioned where understanding replaces ignorance and there are no safe places left for hate.

-Feedback from CITISOFT 

Zara Barrie has a wicked skill for spinning vulnerable, piercingly honest tales of sex, drugs, and transgression while poignantly leading her audience and herself toward hope and enlightenment.
