Suzette Vearnon was a guest motivational speaker at a women's healing workshop I conducted on April 22 and April 23, 2016, in Dulles, Virginia. Women from around the world gathered to learn how to become whole again. Suzette was so inspiring--she had all of us mesmorized with her words of strength and encouragement. We had four different speakers, but she was truly the highlight of the day. I highly recommend her to any venue that needs a speaker to inspire, strengthen, and rebuild self-esteem and strength.
I haven't heard a speaker this good in a long time. We thoroughly enjoyed Carrie's talk.
George has numerous strengths as a running coach. His strong motivational skills and optimistic outlook have inspired runners of all ages and abilities to keep running and believe in their own potential. From a more technical perspective, George has a deep knowledge of effective speed and endurance workouts......and decades of his own running experience to draw upon. All of these things are tremendous assets to any runner who wants to improve, meet a goal, get faster, and reach the next level.

Bolaji is an extraordinary superhero who emceed our superhero movie screening event in July at Le Bauer Park. We were in awe of the way he was able to engage, inspire, and motivate such a large crowd. His positivity and energy were contagious, and even when there were little "opportunities" that came up with the sound system, Bolaji was a total professional...nobody in the audience was aware, and he never skipped a beat! It was a privilege to work with Bolaji, aka Dr. Hero, and I look forward to the next opportunity we get to work together again. Thank you Dr. Hero!!! :)

Sandra Dubose is clearly on her way to becoming an international, multimedia success. This native New Yorker, known as the Bald Beauty Queen of Self-Esteem, is a dynamic motivational speaker, author and smooth jazz vocalist with an inspiring personal story that has made history and national media headlines. Sandra is a role model for women of all ages, and she teaches them how to build healthy self-esteem through the practice of self-love and self-acceptance. She is a patient advocate for womens health issues and has been ever since the age of 25 when she was diagnosed with the autoimmune disease, Alopecia Areata. This incurable condition resulted in the loss of all of the hair on her scalp and body and subsequently, the loss of her self-esteem. She was forced into a compelling journey of self-discovery and had to learn firsthand how to heal emotional wounds, overcome obstacles and rebuild her confidence. As a testament of her courage and star power as a vocalist, in March 2011, Sandra competed bald in a statewide beauty pageant. She made history when she was crowned 2011 Mrs. Black North Carolina, the first bald beauty queen of the state. In her life changing book, My Crown and Glory, Its Not About the Hair, she shares her personal life lessons and six principles she used to shift her life from being a victim to living in victory. Sandra is sought out nationally to deliver her empowering message through words and song at conferences, schools, corporations and churches. She is the recipient of numerous awards, including the 2012 Radical Woman Award and the 2013 SWIBA Inspirational Entrepreneur of the Year Award. This positive role model and youth mentor is being the change she wants to see in this world and paving the way for others to do the same.
