No More Chains Documentary

Fredericksburg, VANo More Chains: Succeeding Against The Odds documentary lifts the veil on the secret struggles of women, from societal pressures to perform under duress to the hidden pain millions of women carry from traumatic life events.

Set for a red carpet premiere on February 18, 2017 at 7:15P.M. in Fredericksburg, VA (Paragon Village 12, 51 Towne Center Blvd.), No More Chains profiles eleven women who pushed through extreme pain along the way to becoming some of the most successful women in a diverse cross-section of industries.

The film features an impressive cast of thought-leaders including Paul C. Brunson, Patrice C. Washington, Abiola Abrams, and influential women-in-business.


Fortune Magazine reports that women make up the fastest growing segment of new business owners. While good news on an economic front, a parallel truth about women also exists.

According to the American Psychological Association (APA); Approximately one half (50%) of all individuals will be exposed to at least one traumatic event in their lifetime and approximately 8% of survivors will develop Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

The APA also reveals that women are twice as likely to develop PTSD and experience a longer duration of symptoms including: nightmares, insomnia, difficulty with intimate relationships, fear, anxiety, anger, shame, aggression, suicidal behaviors, loss of trust, and isolation. Many women often wait years to receive help, while others never receive treatment.

It is highly likely that the most successful women among us are either battling with crippling internal pain or working through trauma.


Authentic Living Lifestyle Coach, Ari Squires, recognized the irony in both her clients and her own story. In response, Squires created the No More Chains movement including the release of her powerful No More Chains documentary (February 18, 2017).
