We had the most fun we've had in some time but came away with a truly inspiring and enjoyable experience. Truly feel I can face my fears with faith in my Lord.
Wow, can't say much. Her walk with cancer and how she dealt with it with humor, pain, reliance on God and having crazy props. Very inspiring and personable.
Jana was very professional. Came early to set up. Was very flexible with her set up. She was hilarious when she needed to be--had the ladies in stitches. Somber when she was getting across her message that Faith Fights Fear. Highly recommend her.
Our ladies really enjoyed Jana's presentation. We received numerous compliments about the program.
Jana Flaig is exceptional to work with! She is organized, prompt, punctual and communicative which made my job on the fundraiser committee a piece of cake. Jana is sincere in her message and relationship with God but she's also brilliantly hilarious in with her nonsensical comedy ingeniously woven into her performance. Thank you Jana for keeping us in stitches!
Jana is not only a great comedian and speaker...She can also act! She's smart and professional and delivers what she promises.
Jana has been an inspiration to our women's retreat. She is very knowlledgable, caring and she is very prepared. We laughed we cried, she was a breath of fresh air. Never a dull moment. Very well prepared. Didn't rush thru her talk she spent time on her speaking she stayed after and talked to the ladies
Jana kept us on the edge of our seats , very refreshing. Not phony. Her Story was from her heat. We would have her back to speak again. She had a great Storu and she demonstrates it without boring her audience.'
With impeccable comedic timing, Jana delivers a dynamic and distinct performance leaving her audience wanting more. Laugh out Loud~Funny!!!!!
I've been in the audience on several occasions where Jana Flaig spoke, and was both touched by her message and laughed till I cried at her humor. Her delivery is spot on as a comedienne, and the message she conveys along with it hits the mark as well. I have done several book signings with Jana, and she is always professional, in all settings. I highly recommend her.
Jana is a professional, but personal. She is funny and her story is inspiring to all! I have enjoyed working along side her and behind the scenes in women conferences. She always made the crowd laugh with tears and left them wanting more!!!
When Jana was a guest on my radio show Help! My Mid-life Sucks! she provided uplifting, fun and engaging conversation around a difficult topic - ovarian cancer. She told her story with the same humor, hope and help she put into her book 'Fight Fear and Foster Faith'. An her story wasn't about the journey through the cancer but more about the journey through the fear one faces when confronted with that news. Jana delivered an inspiring and supportive talk with a feistiness that was refreshing. The listeners were thoroughly engaged.
Jana was a guest on Today's Inspiring Women, on the Voice America World Talk Radio Chanel. She was OUTSTANDING! She is funny, yet charming...she gave great advice on my mentoring show for the next generation of female leaders. She delivers everything she promises. You will not be disappoointed if you book Jana Flaig for your next event.

Influences & Inspiration
Jana's an Ovarian Cancer Survivor who tells her story of surviving cancer using humor, a positive attitude and faith, that inspires others to never give up. Her greatest fight was against fear which overwhelmed her, robbed her of hope, attacked her faith, and threatened to defeat her. No matter what the hardship--divorce, job loss, death of a loved one, empty nest, foreclosure, illness or other difficult circumstance--she testifies how God walks with us through that valley and gives us the tools we need to endure every step, to fight fear along the way, foster faith, and glean the hope and courage we need to be an over-comer.
- A riser/platform or stage to elevate the speaker above the heads of audience members.
- In-house camera and large screen for large groups, in order that audience members seated further from stage may easily see the visuals/props.
- If Jana flies to your event, she requests you provide: one I.V. pole, one standard walker and one card table (33" square), as these items are more difficult to ship or be checked at the airport, and cannot be carried onto the plane.
- Ear/Head microphone (wireless). Second choice: lavalier/lapel (wireless) microphone. (NO hand-held mic, NO mic on stand because Jana must be able to handle props and move about with ease.)
- Sound Check/Camera-Screen/Staging: To ensure a quality presentation, Jana would appreciate if this could be done at least 45-min before doors open to the public. Plus sound check, she needs to set up prop table and test camera angle for visuals.
