JoAnna Ferrari is 'The Transition Specialist'

What makes JoAnna Ferrari “The Transition Specialist?” Two things, the fact she has transitioned or reinvented herself over 21 times and that she has helped thousands of businesses, teams and individuals successfully transition as well [See JoAnna’s Transition Successes Section Below]. What makes her able to succeed and teach transition success so well? I research all the known answers, strategies and ideas. If those don’t appeal to me or won’t work, I create what I need to reach my resolutions. Second, I don’t have goals, I have resolutions. Sounds like a semantics, but it has had a huge impact on my drive and track record. “When people ask me why I am successful at helping people transition? The answer is simple, One, I don’t let my clients let old, fixed ideas, what others think, or lack of resources or knowledge be the reason they don’t succeed and two we always resolve to win and grow. Quitting is not an option, new direction, perspective, resources or strategies are.”

JoAnna had the kind of professional and personal life we all dream of. Then the dream ended and the nightmare began when she openly told the world about starting her gender transition. The aftermath of the announcement was devastating to her world. JoAnna did as JoAnna does, she turned a difficult transition into a magnificent transformation and like a phoenix has risen again to status of a well-respected businesswoman, transition/performance coach and keynote speaker. As JoAnna Puts it “If you succeed once in your life, people will call you lucky. But when you do it twice and transition your gender on top of it all, well, they call you talented, agile, resilient and authentic.” JF
