LIVINGSTON, NJ -- On Tuesday, June 12, 2018, Frederica Peterson, Motivational Speaker and Career Coach, MA, CPC, ELI-MP, engaged nearly 50 women at the Linda and Rudy Slucker NCJW/Essex Center for Women about moving forward in one’s career and in life. Peterson examined how many women feel stuck and trapped in negative thoughts, but how with the right mindset it’s possible to transfer these beliefs into something positive.

Those in attendance at the workshop felt inspired, motivated, and encouraged by Peterson’s message. “I am filled with confidence and self-esteem,” said one participant after listening to Peterson’s moving presentation on “Getting Unstuck-The Five Stages of Career Transition.” Peterson’s dynamic talk embraced the concept of realizing one’s unseen potential and focusing on how the power of positive thoughts can lead to a healthier lifestyle. Peterson encouraged the women to “unlock your potential by shifting your perspective toward moving forward with purpose to enjoy the life you were given.”
