Every Setback is the Setup for the Glamour in Life
Presenter: Doris Hobbs
Location: 1st Level Meeting Room 104

We, as a society, have a tendency of suppressing our fears, as mastering those can be difficult and takes large amounts of will and courage to look in the mirror and say, “I will succeed; I can do this!” The relationship between one’s journey of self-growth and courage tends to evoke feelings of fear, anxiety, and uncertainty, but allowing such emotions to take center stage is moral injustice. At birth each and every one of us is embedded with a purpose or talent which provides us the blueprints of our life’s story, which must be written and shared. From all of my lessons and blessings, I’ve formed an organic sense of how to live an authentic life that channels pure gratitude and glamour. I will teach women during my presentation how to increase their Net Worth, Self-Worth And Feminine Power despite what comes their way.

About Doris Hobbs:

A San Francisco based Luxury Liaison, Doris Hobbs bridges the world of MEDIA with unmistakable elegance through both written Storytelling & Visual Imagery. Known as the Creative Visionary of Rich in Love, an accomplished Media Maven and Fashion Doyenne she has partnered with some of today’s Leading Publications and Television Networks. Named by Diablo Magazine as “Best of the East Bay” as well as featured in the San Francisco Chronicle, InStyle Magazine, Hawaii News Now, CBS13/CW31 and KPIX-TV CBS television networks. Doris continues to breathe new life into her sought-after glamour persona & profitable branding campaigns while maintaining a voice as a Diabetes Awareness Advocate.

On October 22nd of 2014, at the age of 33 Doris was diagnosed as a Type 1 Diabetic. Just two days after her diagnosis she set-off to deliver worldwide media exposure for a number of prestigious diabetes organizations & highly recognized retailers.

Today, Doris encourages women through her personal journey and message that you are the creator of your life, you create your results.
