Fighting Fear

 

What’s holding you back from success? Fear can stop you from moving forward, from achieving your dreams. So you have to ask yourself, what opportunities are you missing?

In this workshop you’ll learn strategies to combat fear and the one thing you must do to overcome all fears.

Speaker: 

Sia Huff

 

In junior high, Sia Huff mesmerized her art class daily with tales of a continuing adventure about her not-so-secret crush. And yet, she was not a lover of books. When she turned sixteen, her dad said to her mom, “I don’t care what it is, just get her to read.” Wise woman that her mom was, she handed Sia a romance novel and she was hooked. She found a genre she could relate to, a world of happily-ever-after’s. Sia made up for her earlier lack of reading by consuming a book a day during the summer breaks in high school and participated in reading contests with her college suite mate to see who could finish a novel the first.

It took many years, a degree in Fashion Merchandising, two different careers in banking and government contracting, a marriage and birth of her first child, before Sia realized her calling to be a writer. Sia now spends her time honing her writing skills and crafting compelling stories about the power of love. In 2008, Sia won the prestigious Maggie Award of Excellence for Best Short Contemporary Series. The following year she finaled in the Golden Heart.
