Patty Aubery

Why is it so hard for us to give ourselves permission?

“I think it’s in our DNA,” says Patty Aubery. And to begin to make a change is “learning how to be more present in the moment and doing it with intention. And, I always say, grace.”

Patty is President of the Jack Canfield Training Group and helped develop the Chicken Soup for the Soul book series, but it would be years before she gave herself permission to publish her own books.

She believes in the importance of sharing goals and vision with others, because you never know who will help you to achieve them.
