"There's a lot of information out there pertaining to safety for women. Most of which sounds good in theory and makes you "feel" safe but offers very little if any actual safety. Criminals are smart. I have dealt with them first-hand for years. I have seen victims too many times. My passion drives me to be obsessive with finding ways to help make a difference. Let me equip you with true skills and daily safety habits that will make a difference in your life, reducing fears and anxiety,  and ensure you're never a good little victim!"- Matt Coombes
