I had read Lisa’s Connection; The new Currency, and that book made incredible positive changes in my way of maintaining relationships. When I held Lisa’s new book, I remember thinking, there’s no way it can be better. Was I wrong! The new book is as eloquent as the first book, with much more insight into seeking your goals." ~Wilson Alvarez

"I have known Lisa Marie for years and she has always taught about and coached about turning possibilities into realities. She is always an upside thinker and teaches her students and friends to be that way as well. Turn Possibilities into Realities: How to Bridge the Gap from a What If... Into a What Is just follows in that path of upside thinking. The book is filled with amazing stories of people turning their possibilities into realities. The chapters are fun and engaging and most of all filled with hope. Lisa Marie knocked it out of the park on this book." ~Michele Broad NP-C, Owner Well Women Network
