Joan Herrmann offers hope with her message about the power of positive thoughts and intentions. She provides information that connects the dots between mind, body, soul and spirit. It is her goal to educate, inspire, motivate and empower others so they can live happy, healthy, productive lives.


Change Your Attitude…Change Your Life

Joan Herrmann is the creator of the Change Your Attitude…Change Your Life brand. She hosts and produces the radio show Conversations with Joan, which airs on New York’s AM970 The Answer, a powerhouse News/Talk station in the NY market, streams on iHeartRadio, and is available across all major podcast networks.

Joan also publishes a monthly digital magazine, 24/Seven, which is distributed to hundreds of thousands worldwide. Her guest and magazine contributors list reads like a who’s who of the most influential and inspirational people in the world. If you ask Joan, she’ll say that they teach her every day because she was, and continues to be, a student who needs to learn the lessons.

Joan is a published author and motivational speaker on the topics of transition, self-esteem, mind-body connection, and self-empowerment. When presenting, she speaks from the heart, not only because she has been taught by the greatest teachers in the world, but because she has experienced self-doubt, loss, and change.

Joan began her journey with what she calls a “rebirth” when her 23-year marriage ended and her mother and sister passed away, all within a period of six months. She used the tremendous loss and personal pain she experienced as the catalyst to a new life. During a period of self-discovery, Joan came to understand that we are impacted by all aspects of life, and are not just the mind, body, soul or spirit, but a sum of the whole. She works tirelessly to provide information that connects the dots between these components.

Joan is a firm believer that knowledge is power and it was her vision to create a forum that empowers through education. From that vision, today, the CYACYL brand has more than one half million Facebook followers, hundreds of thousands of magazine readers, and a dedicated listening base on AM970 and iHeartRadio.

Her recent speaking engagements include the New Jersey Governor’s Conference for Woman, the keynote address for the New Jersey Association of Women Business Owners Annual Conference, a keynote address for the Matchmaking Institute’s Annual Conference, and The Power of Positive Medicine with Dr. Bernie Siegel. She was a voice for the American Lung Association’s Taking a Breath for Women campaign.

She was recently featured on Forbes

Joan is a contributing author to the book, Keys to a Good Life: Wisdom to Unlock Your Power Within; she writes a column for TAPinto, “Conversations with Joan”; and blogs for The Huffington Post. She offers hope with her message about the power of positive thoughts and intentions, and she guides people on how to embrace and deal with change instead of fearing and hiding from it.

Joan is passionate about giving back to society and helping others whenever possible. She is involved with various non-profit organizations and was a recent recipient of a New Jersey Governor’s citation and a Mayor’s award for her work with local hurricane flood relief efforts.
