Annie M. Fonte comes from humble beginnings. Raised on the plains of Northeastern Colorado, she started out as a dirt farmer, kicked up some dust as an athlete, and got gritty in the business world. Annie has over two decades of entrepreneurial endeavors under her belt, each with the same intrigue, suspense, adventure and twists and turns that make up great novels. Her personal experiences are equally captivating. As a result, Annie has a way of connecting and engaging her audiences. She tells stories that excite, energize and inspire. Annie is generous about sharing information that helps others realize that simplicity really is the ultimate sophistication. You can see summaries of her talks below.
We live in a fast-paced, drive-thru, “I want it now society; a world where simple pleasures disappear in the pursuit of bigger, better, faster and more. People are hungry for a sense of meaning and connection. In this discussion, Annie will share with you:

- How to pay attention to how you feel and not depend on others to feel good
- How to bring light into every encounter giving you freedom to be yourself
Mind Your Own Business. What “They” Think of You is None of Your Business.
And who are “they” anyway? Do you give your power away to others because you get caught up in needing approval, acceptance or acknowledgement?

In this talk Annie tells you how to:
- Restore and reunite with your true essence
- Design a life filled with joy
- Make choices that create the life you want to live
- Live from the inside out

Kick your inner “control freak” to the curb
Are you one of those people who has a need to control every aspect of your life as well as the lives of others? If so, it’s not a good idea. Surrender gives us freedom. The past is over and done, the future is yet to come and there is great joy in the NOW. We will talk about:
- Accepting each moment for what it is

Annie believes it is not a question of whether you will be confronted with trials in life, but of who you will choose to be in the face of those trials. After watching her house burn to the ground, ending a 15 year relationship and finding herself involved as the plaintiff in a complex lawsuit Annie decided she was going to change the way she lived from that point forward. And she did. It is Annie’s desire to be the kind of speaker that when she is done talking, the audience sits in silence to watch the credits roll. Nobody wants to get up out of respect for what they just experienced.
