In this transformational workshop, NYT-Bestselling Memoir Author and Storytelling Coach Ingrid Ricks draws on her personal journey and the life-changing lessons she learned to help you tap into the power of Now and unleash the life you want and deserve. Ricks, who discovered she was going blind from a rare eye disease at age thirty seven, shares how her shock diagnosis — combined with an eye-opening trip to South Africa to write about the plight of AIDS orphans — slammed home the reality that all we have for certain is now, and that she had to make it count.
