Introducing The HUG Audio Team The Hug Audio Gift Card Story Hello, my name is Jennifer Yessler, the creator HUG Audio Gift Cards. I created our unique products out of the need to offer encouragement and practical solutions to the important people in my life. I had many friends and loved ones who were tackling difficult situations, who were trying to change their lives, and I wanted to help. I knew I could buy a greeting card of encouragement, but I wanted to offer something more. I began to ask around and was surprised to find out that most of my friends were in a similar situation — they were watching their loved ones struggle and had no solutions, time, or resources to help. In response to such a great need, I wanted to create an affordable product of support and practical solutions, so people like me would no longer feel helpless when faced with friends who are suffering. So I pooled my resources and put together a superb team of professionals to make my vision a reality. We have worked long and hard to develop HUG Audio’s signature product, HUG Audio Gift Cards. They combine an art-quality greeting card with a powerful CD to create a unique gift of support and encouragement. Due to an overwhelming response to our audio gift cards, we have since expanded our product line to include CDs as well. Each of our cards and CDs include a free online companion workbook, to offer added value to each of our products. In our society, we are trained from a young age to mark happy occasions with a gift, but we have no idea what to give to our friends when they are struggling. Now, when a woman’s heart goes out to a friend in a time of struggle, we can offer the most meaningful gift — an effective strategy for life change. Who do you know that needs a HUG? HUG Audio’s Mission Our mission is to offer encouragement and practical solutions to women seeking a more fulfilling future. Every product we create is enriched with care, a mentoring spirit, and an unending belief in the potential of every woman. Research and Development We have invested years in researching the best methods used by the biggest names in success, self-esteem, and relaxation literature. We have studied industry greats such as Steven Covey, author of The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People, Nathanial Branden, author of The Six Pillars of Self-Esteem, Martha Davis, author of The Relaxation and Stress Workbook, and many more of the top authorities in the field of personal development. We also have utilized practical solutions suggested by the Mayo Clinic, the APA, and other top associations, hypnotherapists and psychologists. By using the most reputable sources, we can guarantee we offer the best methods for relaxation and personal development in every HUG Audio product.
