Stress-buster extraordinaire offers tips

March 29, 2001

BATTLE CREEK, Mich. -- A local entrepreneur who calls herself Southwest Michigan's smile ambassador and stress-buster extraordinaire will give tips for using energy wisely at a Western Michigan University presentation Monday, April 9, in Battle Creek.

Janice A. Hathy, owner of Tickled Pink, will present "Does Stress Rob You of Success?" from 6 to 8 p.m. at WMU's Kendall Center, 50 West Jackson. Part of a monthly series co-sponsored by the Southwestern Michigan Urban League, the program is free and open to the public.

In her talk, Hathy will give attendees suggestions for uncovering sources of stress, increasing productivity and effectiveness, converting problems into opportunities, and developing a stress-hardy attitude.

Hathy has developed, produced and performed her own presentations for more than a decade. Her seminars deal with motivation, drug prevention, humor and stress awareness, and her work has been featured on radio and television. Behind her sense of humor, Hathy says, is the grace and strength she has discovered by facing and mastering her own personal challenges.

WMU's Haworth College of Business established the Women's Business Development Center in 1999 to offer support to female professionals and entrepreneurs through training, group and individual problem-solving consultation, current business information and networking opportunities.

Reservations are required to attend the event. For more information or to reserve a seat, contact Dizzy Warren at the Southwestern Michigan Urban League at (616) 962-5553 or <dwarren@smulleague.org>.
