By Judyth Piazza CEO (Editor)

Fran Harris is building a mega media empire brick by brick. Using her on-air career as the foundation, she is delving into producing and directing projects that are near to her heart.

That`s the motto of Fran Harris, who for the past 10 years as an entrepreneur, life/inpowerment coach and consultant has helped organizations and individuals turn self-limiting and self-defeating beliefs into full-blown success stories. Her story as a late blooming teen athlete to national and international speaking prominence has inspired millions around the world. Her riveting journey in sales, sports and broadcasting has been filled with challenges and potential setbacks yet these experiences are also what give Fran a unique sensibility and perspective into the areas of peak performance and human achievement.

Fran wrote her first play at age six. Was speaking in church by seven. Started her first business by nine. Wrote her first book in junior high school. Was selected through a gifted students exchange program to travel to Mexico at 16. And published her first book before she was 20. An Olympic team alternate, she didn`t start playing basketball until she was a sophomore in high school. And after taking off seven years she beat out more than 200 women to land a spot on the Houston Comets` first WNBA championship team.

She has taken her experiences as a spiritual leader, Fortune 100 sales coach and executive with Procter & Gamble, former ESPN & Lifetime Television sports announcer, author and elite athlete, and helped people transform their personal and professional lives. A lively presenter, Fran mesmerizes audiences with her energy, humor and personal stories utilizing the full spectrum of her experiences as platforms to teach lessons that will enhance lives.

Her career has taken her to more than 30 countries utilizing inspirational messages steeped in spiritual principles, inpowerment and self-awareness. She has played on numerous USA national teams and is a national fitness expert, certified personal trainer, sports nutritionist and fitness instructor. Her multimedia company, InPowerment Entertainment, recently acquired the life story rights of acclaimed poet/activist Nikki Giovanni and is producing a documentary about her life. Fran earned her bachelors and masters degrees in Journalism from The University of Texas at Austin where she was a member of the NCAA`s first undefeated women`s national championship team.
