During the interview she shares with us what it took for her to heal over time while she guides through 5 steps to get your confidence back on track - especially as you navigate through a painful breakup or divorce.It is our hope that you can apply these strategies in your own life and we would love to hear your thoughts.I know that Jo walks her talk. She is a leading Confidence Coach and Human Behaviour Expert, plugging people back into their authentic selves and helping them reach their full potential at home and at work. She has an incredible world-view of relationships in many different cultures, which has allowed her to see what works and what doesn't on a bigger level.
