    Sandy Parker Hi Everyone ... My name is Sandy Parker from NAPW in Austin and the mission of Lighten UP Global is to help women find the resources and zest to live life on their own terms. I have a video program called SparkChat –casual conversations about topics that matter to women. These are recorded and will appear on my new website www.Lightenupglobal.com as well as be in emails sent out to our friends. It’s good exposure and as Suzy Prudden said about her interview this week, “Wow, thank you. You gave me a great platform - I'm putting it up on my page and sending it to all my followers on my list and on my Facebook list. Thank you, thank you, thank you.” If you are interested in our conversation, you can find that here: How Women Can Reinvent Themselves With Suzy Prudden and Sandy Parker - https://youtu.be/0JTe7IBJxMs Please send me a quick email to sparkercan@gmail.com and tell me: 1.) What topic is on your heart to speak to women? What gift or wisdom can you share with the world? Send me a few sentences about what you might like to share. 2.) What other topics do you see could be useful to the women that you know? Live your light! Sandy Parker Hay House Author / Producer / SparkChat www.LightenUPGlobal.com 254-592-8067
