About the Author

Formerly a film and TV executive producer, Aurora Winter has over a decade of experience reaching large audiences in person, and on radio and TV. Aurora is America's leading expert at empowering people to go From Heartbreak to HappinessÂ&#x2122;â&#x201E;˘. She has reached over a million people with her message of hope, healing, and happiness. Aurora is a sought-after speaker, coach, and coach trainer. www.AuroraWinter.com


Time magazine reported that it typically takes 5 - 8 years for people to recover from a heartbreaking loss. Aurora is determined to change this statistic by teaching people that it doesn't just take time to heal a broken heart -- it takes appropriate action. Aurora's clients are shifting from pain to peace in a matter of months, giving them back years of joyful, meaningful life. Aurora is the founder of the Grief Coach Academy. Aurora's vision is that her team of certified coaches will help grieving people recover from grief more quickly and easily, so that people don't suffer needlessly for 5 - 8 years. Rev. Dr. Michael Beckwith, who was featured in "The Secret" said, "Aurora offers wise tools for appreciating the everyday beauty of living." One coaching client, radio host Alana Pratt, stated, "Within one session of coaching with Aurora, my life has changed. She's the most powerful mix of soul and business savvy I've ever met." Another coaching client, Li Ransom, a young widow, was so grateful that she got a custom license plate that says, "THXRORA" She said, "Coaching with Aurora changed my life. I'm www.AuroraWinter.com


so grateful! I ordered a custom license plate to express my gratitude." Dr. Wayne Dyer endorsed Aurora's book, "From Heartbreak To Happiness." It is Aurora's intimate diary of healing after her 33year-old husband died suddenly, leaving her widowed with a 4-year-old son. After her husband's death, Aurora worked for Canada's largest film and TV company (now Alliance Atlantis). She oversaw 250 hours of TV and film production, and a development budget of $1,500,000. A serial entrepreneur, Aurora has launched two 7-figure businesses from scratch –– a yacht sales company with her late husband, and a film production company that raised ǧ2,500,000 and made 7 films. Now, Aurora dedicates her life to empowering others to become happier. Happiness doesn't take time –– it takes the right inspiration, information, coaching, and action. Aurora costars with Bernie Siegel in "What If" the movie. The producer, James Sinclair, stated, "Aurora's story of triumph is an inspiration to all."

In 2008, Aurora was elected to the board of directors of the International Coach Federation Â&#x2013;â&#x20AC;&#x201C; LA. Kaiser Permanente Program Coordinator Stephen Gregg said, "Aurora's a terrific, dynamic speaker. She was a delight to work with. I have no hesitation recommending her." Aurora would love to bring her inspiring, uplifting message to your audience.
