Finding herself with no career after a series of unfortunate events, Lucetta turned tragedy into triumph with a remarkable global journey, backpacking through third world countries, and learning to overcome her fears and find her true identity. When she returned to the US, she became a certified life coach, a bestselling author and an international speaker.
Lucetta wrote a best-selling memoir of her incredible solo journey around the world entitled “It’s Already Tomorrow Here: Never Underestimate the Power of Running Away.” By conquering fear, Lucetta gained remarkable success in her personal and professional life.
She said, “you are the only person who wakes up every day that lives your life, so why not live it your way! ” Fear is the only thing standing in the way. All of your dreams can come true, if you have the courage to pursue them.” All attendees received a copy of Lucetta’s bestselling “Your Amazing Itty-Bitty Fear-Busting Book” so they could start living their best life free of fear.
