Wellness is not something we talk about it is something we live…


by Angela D. James, MBA
The brand “Across all Ages” has evolved from the infancy of “Caregiver’s Story,” a personal experience which turned into a book examining the psychological, emotional and financial hardship Carolyn A. Brent experienced, based on vexatious litigation; a label the California Legislators termed it. While this brand continues to drive her body of work to the Best Seller’s list daily and keeps it in the Library of Congress as a resource for Caregivers; Thorndike Press has made it available in hardcover to colleges and universities. The brand continues to grow and is applicable across all ages.

“Across All Ages” has now become the flagship of the brand’s platform to encompass self “Wellness,” which is something often forgotten by caregivers. Some people never recover from the kind of trauma vexatious litigation inflicts on them and that Brent found her-self entangled in.

 She not only recovered mentally, she found ways around her physical challenges to esteem her with not one, but three national Body building awards; second and first place respectively. This is why she battles on two fronts today: one is an advocacy campaign on “wellness.” Brent, embodies what it means to truly age gracefully and without fear. “Wellness is not something we talk about it is something we live. It begins on the inside, but the manifestation of “Deep Beauty” flows like blood through your veins and marrow to your bones:” While the other component of her life’s blood is to ensure that laws are changed to prevent others from experiencing the totality of damage to an individual when vexation litigation is brought against them.
