Meet Featured Sister Anne Elizabeth Denny

anne elizabeth dennyAnne is the woman at the party talking about what nobody wants to hear — end of life decisions. But it’s a topic we all need to talk about with our families. And she’s making it easier to start that conversation.

Meet Featured Sister Anne Elizabeth Denny

Business Name: Plan Well Finish Well

Business Description: As a speaker, author and blogger, I educate and equip individuals and families to proactively prepare for future medical decisions. I especially help women—both those dealing with a loved one’s or their own—upcoming end-of-life journey to trade conflict, confusion and fear for family unity, confidence and peace of mind.

Anne’s Story: 

My mother’s twenty year journey with Alzheimer’s disease was the catalyst for the work I do. Though Mom’s decline was gradual, we faced numerous medical decisions in her final three years. As a family, we did not always agree on the best care possible for Mom.

My experiences, coupled with a whisper from the Holy Spirit, prompted me to explore how other families were coping with end-of-life decisions. I learned that most families never discuss their preferences until the crisis unfolds in the ER. I felt called to learn all I could so I could help other families prepare.

For most of my professional career, I served as a business technology consultant in the healthcare industry. I developed solutions to solve problems for clients, usually by selecting and applying technology. Those skills equipped me to to design and develop a web-based healthcare directive tool, which I’ve licensed to a major healthcare delivery system. I’m actively marketing to other prospects. I’ve written a book, offered motivational presentations, and created my blog to share the message that end-of-life preparation affords peace of mind.

Helping families stay united instead of battling over care for a loved one is my mission. Scripture repeatedly commands us: “Do not fear.” I believe that part of our testimony is a graceful end-of-life journey. With thoughtful preparation, we can demonstrate that we do not fear dying, because we are certain of our salvation. As Christian women, we have the opportunity and responsibility to prepare our families for the dying process. We can be the conversation catalyst for those we love, ensure all of our family members write and communicate their healthcare directives.

Mona’s Story: 

I am a mentor. Actually I am a pointer. I point to things. Things like… lies I see women believe, truth that the Bible reveals, and a love like no other, Jesus. I’m the “been there done that” girl on a journey to come back and lend a hand, a shoulder and yes a pointer. I love encouraging and equipping women in the art of womanhood. To become not only givers of life physically, but to be life givers in every situation that comes their way. We were created to do this… do you know that? Not sure how? Join me and the community of women that desire to live fully feminine and impact their generation. We are UnStoppable.

Meet Featured Sister Semonna McNeil

Semonna McNeilIf you’ve ever wanted to escape the structure and pace of a corporate job, Semonna McNeil’s story will inspire you. Her journey from hobby to business wasn’t easy, but it was worth it!

Meet Featured Sister Semonna McNeil

Business Name: Run Leap Launch

Business Description: Runleaplaunch.com is a strategic launch consulting service specializing in list building, virtual events, and launches for both stuck and upleveling business owners.

Semonna’s Story: 

I am a reformed Corporate American robot. I started growing my VA business while employed, utilizing evenings and weekends to network and work on client projects. I believe I started off as a VA versus positioning myself as an internet marketing strategist initially because I suffered from severe impostor syndrome, but I desperately wanted more freedom in my life. My final straw: I remember asking my manager if I could leave work to go to urgent care because I was sick (this was so out of character for me), and she refused to let me take the day off. I went to urgent care after work to learn that I had been working with a sinus infection and walking pneumonia with a fever of 102. I began working on my escape plan that day. I prayed to God and shared my challenges and heart’s desire. Within a month, I was gifted a scholarship into an ‘escape your 9-5 job’ coaching course. This was my sign and I began to ramp up my marketing efforts to turn my freelancing hobby into a full-time business. After taking on several clients, I learned quickly that I was passionate about strategy and implementation, and I wanted to support more partners that really struggle with putting the two pieces together.
