Meet Rita Rocker, Wordsowers Christian Writers Conference workshop leader.
Rita Rocker is an international published author, life-transforming inspirational and educational speaker, communications and image specialist, and career consultant with Transformation Academy, LLC. She inspires individuals to rise and go forward by providing powerful techniques for victorious personal and professional life makeovers. Clients include teens, adult men and women, and the elderly. She works with individuals, professional organizations, corporations, youth programs, and at conferences and retreats.
Rita has appeared on national television and radio talk shows on self-esteem and communication. Her professional background also includes corporate training, human resources and non-technical project management. She is a former Mrs. Nebraska and Mrs. America contestant (whose husband died during her term from cancer), and on the international board for Professional Woman Network.
On a personal note, Rita’s passion to transform lives comes from climbing out of her own deep pit of very low self-worth, domestic violence with physical/mental/emotional abuse, self-sabotaging behavior through fear of failure and rejection, emotional eating, care giving, personal loss, and self-destructive relationships.
Rita understands what it is like being stricken with several health issues and eight surgeries in two years including a brain tumor, jaw bone tumor and Meniere’s disease. She is very authentic and transparent while filling her clients, audiences and readers with hope, help, humor and heart!
What would you like conference attendees to know about you? Maybe something that would help them feel comfortable approaching you. I have been passionate about providing personal and career development for over 30 years. My passion is to walk alongside individuals, educating and encouraging them to reach their full potential in life, relationships and their given career path, to help build up and influence those around them.
What do you see as the greatest take away from your workshop and why? Who will get the most out of your workshop? Those who want to really “tell” their story and share all that their book has to offer, whether life, learning, entertaining, educating will leave with tools to use immediately to bring their book pages to life. They will be able to life, or even conviction, to the written page. Participants will gain greater confidence in their presentation skills, enabling them to move away from fear and focus on all of the possibilities of communication with a live audience that can give them such enjoyment. Learn techniques to bring your book to life – taking your story off the pages and infusing emotions, enthusiasm into your audience. It is a fun and rewarding experience for all—especially for you!
Attendees will leave my workshop with numerous tips and techniques to be the best they can be, turning their written story into a knockout presentation to audiences who connect with their genre.
If you could share only one piece of information/tip/encouragement with a writer, what would it be? You have a powerful story to tell and when you ask God to speak through you, He will give you clear direction. As you continue to develop yourself, and your speaking and writing ability, you become even better equipped to build up, minister to, and encourage others. Happiness comes from you making things happen instead of waiting for things to happen to and for you. Exchange your gifts and knowledge with all of those who will be blessed hearing/receiving it. Life will never be the same.
Hope at the End of Your Rope
What is a rope? It is a strong cable that connects, secures or binds. Individual strands are fairly weak and ineffective by themselves, but the synergy of numerous strands (divinely appointed people, places and circumstances) wound together provides great strength for you on your life’s journey. Learn how to use the obstacles thrown in your way as stepping stones to new heights of success and joy.
Rita Rocker knows first-hand how trials and disappointments can leave you dangling at the end of your own too-familiar rope called life, where wearisome circumstances can leave you exhausted, with little energy to fulfill your destiny. Let today be the beginning of your new journey. You are the architect and builder of your life. Using this book as a guide, you can design a new blueprint, one that creates an exciting, fulfilled life from this day forward.
