The leap from writing to speaking~
When the larger, local community thoroughly embraced Jan's book they also led her to the next phase of offering encouragement.  By request, Jan began
a whole new phase of her life as a motivational/inspirational speaker for women's groups.   As invitations grew, Jan crafted numerous presentations and
retreats for women of both religious and community organizations.

Presentations for women of all ages, and all stages of life~
In an intimate home gathering or an auditorium of hundreds, Jan Bethancourt encourages, motivates and  inspires every woman to believe in her best
self.  She challenges each listener to recognize  her gifts, identify her goals and to trust her abilities!  With humor, candor and a few surprises Ms.
Bethancourt explains,
"An attitude of confidence, courage and compassion will see you through any situation life brings your way".    Jan shares dynamic
stories of the strong women in her own life who have been greatly challenged.  Living examples of, "Your attitude defines you," they have not only survive
but thrive.  Where women gather as community Jan Bethancourt gently challenges, "Chin up, shoulders back, keep moving forward".   Most importantly,
"You are worthy of goodness."
