My Motivational Speaking Career
My motivational speaking career spans over the past 19 years. Being bashful as a young girl, I shied away from speaking in front of groups of people and opted to stay in the background and observe instead. However, as I became more aware of my voice and my message over the years, I began to speak more confidently in groups and while I was in college I took a speech class which helped open me up to the idea of speaking in front of people. My speaking career became official, when I was asked to be the keynote speaker at a woman’s conference at the age of 27. I must say it was a bit intimidating and perhaps a little overwhelming to speak to a group of women who were mostly twice my age. Nevertheless, I put all of my fears aside and I delivered a message that was very motivating.
Since that first time speaking, back in 1997. I have spoken all over the country to men, women, colleges, corporations, churches, small & large organization and most recently high schools. Speaking to audiences and sharing my message of empowerment, hope, reinvention and living your dreams is the icing on top of my cake. I connect with my audiences and I’m always transparent and relatable. I always bring my “A” game whenever and wherever I’m requested to speak and I always aim to leave my audience in a better place once I’m done than when I began. My motivational messages area always uniquely designed for each event that I speak at, while intertwining my personal experiences and the event theme together.
