Build Your Village with Florence Ann Romano

June 7, 2023

Please join us and our guest, Florence Ann Romano, for a show on her book, Build Your Village: A Guide to Finding Joy and Community in Every Stage of Life. Everyone has heard the phrase, “It takes a village,” but how exactly do we find our village? Who is in it and what does it look like? You may realize that even if you have a calendar filled with social plans, you still might not have your “village.” Florence answers these questions and more, helping you to build lasting relationships with those in your life, dispel isolation, and improve your overall happiness and health. She’ll discuss the importance of a village at every stage of life—a support system for our physical, mental, and emotional health.  Your village is waiting. Now it’s time to go and find it.

Florence is a personal growth strategist, author, philanthropist, and businesswoman with a sparkling personality. With an eye for marketing, Romano flourishes as both an advisor for and the vice president of business strategy for Yakkety Yak. Florence is a proud member of the board of directors at the Children’s Research Fund as well as Female Strong. She is also a founding member of Sesame Street’s Leadership Council. After spending more than fifteen years as a childcare provider, during which she was known as the Windy City Nanny, Romano is the authority on childcare and family support in this new millennium and has more than five hundred media appearances discussing these topics. Born and raised just outside of Chicago, Romano wants to show people that not only is the saying “It takes a village” true, but also how important the need for community is.
