Navigating Life's Challenges: Getting Back in the Driver's Seat When Life Knocks You Off Course

Summary: 

Adversity is a certainty in life. We all have challenges. We all have hard things we’ve walked through. Our challenges will likely look different from one person to another, but the tools and strategies we can use to navigate them are universal. As a person who lives life from a wheelchair, AND who has experienced lots of life’s other setbacks - two devastating car accidents, lost jobs, etc. - Mindy has learned to navigate adversity well and to get back up over and over again. She will help inspire your audience to do the same.  

Six Steps to Becoming Limitless: How to Achieve Any Goal

The word Mindy chooses to live her life by is “Limitless.” As person who's achieved almost every goal she's ever set out to accomplish - despite her physical limitations - she has proven that the wrong mindset in life can be far more disabling than what any wheelchair might represent. She believes in potential, NOT in limitations, and as such, she’s figured out how to set and accomplish goals, even when the odds are against you. In this presentation, she will break it down for your audience and give them the tools to go crush their own personal or professional goals.


Adversity, Diversity & Inclusion: Finding Strength in Our Differences

Summary: 

There is comfort in familiarity. It is our nature to seek out people who are like us. But, by limiting our exposure to people who are different - whether race, physical ability, age, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity or religion - we limit our knowledge, our perspective, our competitive advantage, and so much more. There are unique experiences and challenges that come along with being a member of any classification of people. But, Mindy believes that the challenges we face are the very things that build in us the skills and experiences that can make us extraordinary. In this presentation, Mindy discusses the reasons why diversity & inclusion makes us and makes our businesses better, and will examine, from her own perspective, why a company should strive to be a leader in this area.


Disaster Pre-Covery: The COVID Lesson

Summary: 

2020 and COVID taught us the importance of being prepared, of flexibility, of resilience, of creative problem-solving, of community/human connection, of gratitude, and of our physical, emotional, financial, professional and relational health. It’s all about mindset, intention and perspective. Mindy will share her expertise on getting into the right mindset to proactively ensure the health of these things BEFORE disaster strikes.


Doing What You Can with What You Have: Redefining What Optimal Health Means to You

Summary: 

Mindy has lived life not only as a disabled woman, but as a disabled woman whose disability affects her physical form and makes the standards of beauty the media sets for women that much less unattainable. Through Mindy’s discussion of living with a disability and her own health-journey, she will normalize the idea of pursuing optimal health, and the audience will receive a new-found appreciation of what their bodies can do and a new outlook on being proactive about their health, and setting and achieving their health goals.
