October Speaker – Jayne Sanders,  Scientific Hand Analysis Specialist

After an MBA and over 25 years in the corporate world, Jayne Sanders began a search for more meaningful, joyful work by helping people in deeper ways. She found Scientific Hand Analysis, and her life hasn’t been the same since! She is now is a Master Hand Analyst & Teacher, Purpose Coach, and Law of Attraction Coach. How powerful is Scientific Hand Analysis? It is so accurate, profound, and life-changing that FORBES wrote an article about Jayne and her work.  Jayne’s other passion is riding Darby, her Arabian-Appaloosa cross she rescued a few years ago. She is all about hands and horses!  Well, and dark chocolate too.




Since joining the WRBA, I have made some of the best connections for my business! The sense of community, support, customers and friendships I’ve made have been invaluable to my business.
