How is the Global Pandemic Affecting You?

Are you concerned about the impact the current pandemic may affect your life now and in the future? Would you like to break through the blocks that may be holding you back to accomplish your goals? Would you like to
know how to live a fuller, richer, healthier life?


Teresa Bruni, Founder of Less Fear, More Flow LLC, is on a mission to assist anyone who wants to accomplish that. Teresa's journey began over 20 years ago when she recovered from a decade-long chronic health condition. About 7 years into the depths of that illness, medical science still had no answers. She wondered if she would ever get well.

But she did! A solid belief in herself, knowing she had the power to create any kind of life she desired was the beginning. Then she cleaned up her environment – including her diet, relationships, thoughts, and emotions. And her desire is to help as many people as she can - to do the same.

What Can Happen if You Only Dare to Hope?



Hope Mueller is an author, inspirational speaker, executive, and active not-for-profit volunteer. A results-driven leader and change agent, Hope is passionate about career development and community service, among others. 

Her early years were marked by the experiences of a hippie commune. Hope's unique childhood shaped her approach and interaction with the world, with a gift of creating order out of chaos and turning vision into reality.

To realize success:

  • FOCUS on the solution instead of the problem
  • Be comfortable with change
  • Persistence, persistence, persistence, and laser-focused on goals


Honest and raw with 
no request for empathy or complaint

Hopey chronicles the story of a courageous girl in a 70s southern Indiana commune, complete with flowers for dinner, a ball of acid in the freezer and orgies on the living room floor.

The chaos of her formative years, which are littered with violent episodes, periods of hunger and assaults, leads Hope to set off on her own at the age of 15.

Written as intense past moments, reflective chapters, and flash-forwards, these three voices come together to transcend time and connect the past and the present. 

Hopey is a reminder that we can love, believe, and be successful beyond all expectations -
if we ONLY DARE TO HOPE.
