About the Author

Anne Bonney cast off her corporate shackles in the fall of 2015 with bright-eyed optimism, planning to get back to her 6-figure income within 6 months of being a new professional speaker.  With her ego and furniture in storage, she struggled for two years before she finally got sick of eating ramen noodles and signed up for some help!  She’s far from where she wants to be, but is finally making a living as a professional speaker, and is happy to report that she hasn’t eaten ramen in almost two years.
