“Wanda La Russa’s  Let’s Chat…Positivity was a great way to shake up the norm for our clients. They left engaged, with practical, easy-to-follow steps to improve their mindset and move forward with their goals. I watched as Wanda adapted her course to a small, intimate group, and adjusted to the responses she was getting from participants. She was truly masterful and gracious. Her passionate heart for serving women truly came through. Thank you Wanda!”
