The Next ChapterTestimonials


Writer Teresa Tsalsky said, “Light precedes every transition, whether at the end of a tunnel, through a crack in the door or the flash of an idea, it is always there, heralding a new beginning.” My goal is to shine additional light on the sometimes difficult changes and transitions that lead to new beginnings.

About the Speaker:

Jan Mann is a two-time author, researcher, traveler, and motivational speaker. One of the new chapters in Jan’s life was writing and publishing Cruising Connecticut with a Picnic Basket, a day tripping, picnicking and recipe book which prompted over 200 book signings and talks at Connecticut venues from 2006 and continuing today. During the past 40 years Jan has transitioned from one chapter to another numerous times in order to follow her passion and her dreams. Along the way she has become an expert in the steps that are both necessary and desirable for living life to the fullest.

*Depending on the distance from Manchester to each venue, there may be a nominal fee for travel expenses.

Jan’s wonderful presentation was included in our library’s recent staff training program.  She not only provided useful information about the process of dealing with change, but the stories of how she handled change in her own life were inspirational.  Staff members were totally engaged in the program and are still making positive comments about the experience.  Highly recommended.
