Press and Reviews

“For reasons only known to her, Rena shares her personal story of overcoming adversity and finding bliss in her personal, professional, financial and community life. She shares her story of childhood trauma and how she overcame that nightmare to reach deeply desired personal goals. Step by step she leads us in a process, surrounded by a community of support (tribe), to face adversity, claim our future and learn in one degree shifts how to change our lives for the better. Her examples are concrete and the loving, supportive environment her approach creates allows us to create, state and pursue dreams in a safe and motivational space. She leads us through difficult and needed conversations in order to move past former barriers into our dreams. Her book is a unique and caring approach to change, tested through her experience and presented in a way that we all can relate to. I highly recommend it!”
