Jean Steel | Happy People Win 

Happiness – it’s a very simple topic, yet one that we tend to struggle with the most in our adulthood, and Jean Steel has devoted her life’s work as a speaker and author to help people not only find their happiness but thrive in it. Her experience growing up overseas with her family in Africa and Asia, as well as her extensive education in mind-body health and wellness have led a life full of gratitude, vast perspective, and joy that she so thoughtfully and humorously shares with the world through motivational keynotes and books. Her timeless messages and universal appeal are unforgettable and just what you need to find you happy! For more information, go to www.happypeoplewin.com.
