Marianne Emma Jeff

Pasadena Event to Inspire Women Everywhere To Tell Their Story "I used to...And Now I..."

Pasadena, Calif., - Marianne Emma Jeff is not what you’d expect her to be. The owner of the Women's Business Momentum Center tried to kill herself twice before she was 19 and was an alcoholic until she turned 40. Now, this smart and professional woman runs a center to help women starting their own businesses.

She always thought her struggle had been unique, until she attended a writer's workshop ran by Lisa Fugard, a celebrated Hay House author. In this workshop people had to complete the sentences: "I used to ..." and "And now I..." After listening to these other women's tales, Marianne realized what a powerful motivational tool such stories would be for the many women in Pasadena who are starting their own businesses.
