Tonya Ware: Speaker
Most of us have been through tremendous pain and trauma that have derailed our direction and taken us completely off course. People everywhere are standing at the threshold of decision and are asking this question; What is the answer for MY life? Tonya Ware has stood at the same place and asked the same questions.
Having experienced a life-changing event where she actually died, and was miraculously revived, Tonya transitioned from a top-of–the-corporate-ladder mega million dollar producer, who had just recorded her debut album, Tonya Ware - The Voice, to life as a virtual shut in - spending more than 6 long years desperately trying to reclaim her health and her life.
Her heartfelt message, “Life is Your Song: Discover Your Voice” is a story everyone must hear. Speaking topics include: Re-setting Your Inner Compass, Re-establishing Your Identity, and How to find your song, when you’ve Lost your Voice! 10% of all proceeds from book sales are donated to the American Heart Association.
