You will wonder at times how she knew about you and a particular significant other because she seems to describe you and the relationship to a T. And, when you read the last page you will wish you had read it years and a number of relationships earlier.

I have read other books on this topic which spoke to me... This book, which I got in the Kindle version, pulled it all together for me--the biology, personal values, self identity, the human quest for belonging and intimacy. The book... brought to me great understanding. I wish I had ordered the paper version with the workbook. I ended up going back and ordering it.

How do we find ways to take care of ourselves and create balance so we can be our best selves throughout our life time? This topic is timely for both men and women and one you won’t want to miss!

Under Patterson’s leadership, the newly revived conference received critical acclaim and was covered by the largest media outlets in the world.  The California Women’s Conference was the latest in a number of signature events Patterson has oversaw. Just to name a few, these events include celebrity chef challenges, signature wine festivals such as “Taste of Ladera” with over 30,000 attendees, corporate workshops, and hosting the President of the United States.

Patterson was tapped by Internet giants Groupon and Living Social early on in their business cycle to help them increase their market share.  Today, Patterson continues to produce the California Women’s Conference and has taken her program global licensing the conference through WomenNetwork.com she created.  The Women Network helps corporations engage women professionals from both a recruitment angle to attract the right talent, as well as customer acquisition angle to increase their market share with identified sub-segments of the highly complex and sought after demographic.  Emerging businesses frequently tap Patterson and the WomenNetwork.com to help them get connected to the right individuals and develop the right strategies to accelerate their growth.         

In addition to her success with WomenNetwork.com, Patterson is an energetic and engaging public speaker for organizations such as Loyola Marymount University, Groupon, and The Green Festival.  Patterson is the feature author for a women’s anthology that will feature notable celebrity contributors to be released by Ben Bella Books in fall 2013.  Patterson also hosts the radio show OC Spotlight & Women Network, which airs weekly on OC Talk Radio.
