Her services are now related to connecting her clients to the energies of the numbers that they are working with in their life and business in order to help elevate their business success. In her presentation, Jo will connect you to the energies of the numbers by showing you what can be achieved when we tune into our personal energies and vibrations of the key numbers of our lives. She’ll share what numerology is and isn’t, how the energies of the numbers affect us on a daily basis and will show you how to calculate your life path number, what this means and how to harness this energy in your business. When we connect to the rhythms and cycles of our path and our business path, life becomes much easier and much more rewarding.
