“As marketers,” Quinlan explained, “we know that one of the most critical and defining female relationships is between mothers and daughters. We know this in ‘real life’ but may overlook it when we connect with women as consumers. Understanding the psychology of how we become the women we are can lead to stunning insights, not only for our clients but for ourselves.”

GodBox “I wrote The God Box about a discovery I made after my mother’s death that revealed lessons that changed my outlook on life.” Quinlan added, “I promise this performance will be a memorable, professional and personal experience for all the marketers in the M2W® audience.”
