What Women Are Saying About THRIVER NATION
After finishing all my surgeries and treatments, I have felt so lost and wondered what is next and how do I move on with life. Thriver Nation has helped me to start figuring out how to do this. The workshops have started giving me tools to help me move forward. There is so much information covering so many topics that I have found so helpful. Having a community with people who understand what you have been through has been so comforting. I feel no matter what you are dealing with there is someone there who can help you if you need it. I also love the live sessions where we chat about anything and share many laughs along the way. I am so grateful for this group! —Jo O
Thriver Nation has been just what I needed. When I found out about it, it seemed like something I might be interested in, thriving instead of just surviving. I was searching for something. I felt stuck. I finished chemo, BMX, radiation and am on Letrozole and so now what? What can I do? What should I eat? Are these feelings normal? I had so many questions/feelings. So I signed up. What a blessing it has been. I have met some wonderful ladies, correction, friends. We share, we laugh, we encourage, we listen. They get it! Not only are there a great group of women in Thriver Nation, but there are expert speakers on a variety of subjects. You can even interact with the speakers and ask questions that are specific to you. I am still a work in progress, but I'm not just surviving anymore. I Am Thriving! —Vicky E
For me, being a member and thriver of Thriver Nation, is an excellent and holistic way for a woman to show self-care. With the variety of topic and subject matter experts, there is something for everyone. I particularly have enjoyed the very gentle yoga exercises. Most of us have some sort of joint and muscle issues, and the yoga is a great way to help alleviate the chronic discomfort. Another great thing is that if you can't attend the virtual meeting, you are able to replay at your leisure. This is very helpful for me, as I work nights, and sleep during the day. I totally encourage everyone to become a Thriver! Isn't it time we put ourselves first, after undergoing the awfulness of Breast Cancer? —Tina L
WHY THRIVER NATION?
Too many women who have endured breast cancer are walking around with gaping, unseen wounds. Yes, there is physical damage — some that can be seen and some that can’t — but no one seems to talk about the mental, emotional, and spiritual trauma that occurs. And there doesn’t seem to be direction about how to heal those kinds of wounds.
On top of that, so many women feel lonely and isolated. In today’s fast-paced world, true connections are difficult to make and nurture.
We tackle it ALL — TOGETHER — in COMMUNITY with one another! We find the right experts and solutions, gather the necessary information, support one another, and CHEER ONE ANOTHER ON to move forward with our lives in THRIVER NATION!

BONUS On-Demand Training
with Four Popular Experts
Jan James (your host and cheerleader) worked hard to return to a thriving life after her diagnosis over ten years ago. Since her diagnosis, four popular experts, in particular, have had significant impact on her thoughts, her mindset, and her behavior. She's now curated the publicly available video training from each of those experts for you to use on-demand inside THRIVER NATION. If you choose to learn from that expert, note that Jan created each "lesson" to be no more than 30 minutes long, allowing you to fit this on-demand training into your schedule—at your pace.
The work of these respected coaches/educators (Mel Robbins, Dr. Caroline Leaf, Dr. Daniel Amen, and Jennifer Allwood) is waiting for you inside THRIVER NATION! Jan has done all the heavy lifting to take each popular expert's best "golden nuggets" and put them into bite-sized chunks for our THRIVER NATION members.
Learning just a few new things every week will create forward momentum for you and will help you move toward a THRIVING life!
Mel Robbins is one of the leading voices in personal development and transformation. The simple tools she has developed to help people learn to effectively change their thoughts, their mindsets, and their behavior are backed by science.
Mel is the author of the bestselling books, The 5 Second Rule, The High 5 Habit, six #1 bestselling audiobooks, the #1 podcast on Audible, as well as signature online courses that have changed the lives of more than half a million students worldwide.
Her groundbreaking work on behavior change is used by healthcare professionals, veterans’ organizations, and the world’s leading brands to inspire people to be more confident, effective, and fulfilled.
Dr. Caroline Leaf
Dr. Caroline Leaf is a communication pathologist and cognitive neuroscientist, specializing in cognitive and metacognitive neuropsychology.
Dr. Leaf is also the bestselling author of Switch on Your Brain, Think Learn Succeed, Cleaning Up Your Mental Mess, and many more. She teaches at academic, medical and neuroscience conferences, and to various audiences around the world.
Since the early 1980s she has researched the mind-brain connection, the nature of mental health, and the formation of memory. She was one of the first in her field to study how the brain can change (neuroplasticity) with directed mind input.
Dr. Daniel Amen
Dr. Daniel Amen is a physician, adult/child psychiatrist, founder of Amen Clinics, and brain health expert.
Dr. Amen is a 12-time New York Times bestselling author, including Change Your Brain, Change Your Life, The End of Mental Illness, Healing ADD, Memory Rescue and many more.
Dr. Amen believes that when the brain is healthy, people are happier, physically healthier, wealthier, and they make better decisions, which helps them be more successful in every area of life. When the brain is not healthy, for whatever reason, people are sadder, sicker, poorer, and their decision-making suffers, which diminishes their chances for getting what they want out of life.

I've done the work to find experts who have simple and effective strategies to help you heal faster and deeper.
