Patty Aubery Patty Aubery is a powerhouse of wisdom, creativity and authenticity. She can be your best friend or the tough love you need to get unstuck when it seems impossible. She's been there and done it - from her early days of building one of publishing’s first billion-dollar brands, Chicken Soup for the Soul, to her current role as president of The Canfield Training Group, Patty has created an inspiring life for herself (and others!) around the world.

For the last several years she’s been empowering women to show up more boldly and authentically in their lives with her best-selling book and course, Permission Granted. In it she teaches clients how granting themselves permission can lead them down a path of fulfilling what they want most out of life.

Now, combining her passion for business building and her desire to help people live life on their own terms, her latest mission is to help speakers, authors and coaches create the lives and businesses they’ve always dreamed of through teaching online programs, providing coaching and mentoring, and running luxury retreats at her home in Nashville, TN.
