A 1989 graduate of Georgetown University Law Center, Francine D. Ward is a business, intellectual property, and estate planning attorney.

Fear Ain't Nothing But A Four-Letter Word
What is more cunning, baffling, powerful, and more deadly than a speeding bullet?
In any given year, F-E-A- R takes more lives than cigarettes, alcohol, drugs, cancer, and car accidents combined. It ruins families and is arguably the root cause of
more depression and is the single biggest barrier to living a life of endless possibilities. F-E-A-R keeps us stuck, broke, dependent, and living beyond our means. It is the ultimate jailor because when F-E-A R comes to visit it takes plenty of prisoners.
It is the one thing we all have in common, whether we are head of our own company, working for someone else, retired, single, married, divorced, or in search of our-selves. In this program Francine demonstrates strategies for helping the audience get past this deadly killer of hope and dreams.
