Show Closure -Special Message From Annette

This is the end of Season 3 and maybe the Herpreneur Show altogether. I’m not entirely sure …what I am sure of is I’m feeling a bigger calling; and I’m taking things off my plate to ‘FEEL’ into it. To allow space for my next evolution to transpire. You can listen about the closure on this episode release. For now, thank you to my hardcore listeners; thank you for all your support and podcast reviews, downloads and shares. We will meet again soon…however that looks, is still to be unveiled!

Ep#29 – Cellulite… Go away!

Cellulite.

Women would practically spend anything to get rid of it.

and don’t the big brands know it too!

They try to claim they have the next ‘miracle cream’ that will be your solution to diminishing it for good.

But do they work?

😞 …Hmmmmmm?

Today I talk about Cellulite, what it is, why women get it more than men and proven ways to help reduce it significantly.

It sucks when you have it as you are embarrassed when it’s time to be in your swimwear,
hate being in the retail change room as those lights make it look even worse. You practically walk out of well-lit changerooms feeling depressed swearing that you’ll go on a diet tomorrow.

You‘re not alone!

90% of women suffer from cellulite.

…from the thinnest to the other most overweight.

I’m not promising you any astonishing results on this interview, just more of an understanding to help support you in your journey of wellness.

Here’s to hope xx
Annette
