Defying the odds, Alexa recovered from her near-death experience.  She is an entrepreneur, speaker, and author who believes in the power of one. Be in the 1%— you are one person, one connection, one decision away from transforming your life.

Andrea Joy Wenburg



Andrea Joy Wenburg was not taught to speak up. She sought credibility, empowerment. She attended seminary, hoping to find the best way to live, but left with more questions than answers.

But, with time, Andrea found empowerment. She found credibility. She found her voice.

Andrea has dedicated herself to helping other people to find their voices as well through her company, and podcast by the same name, Voice of Influence.

“If I help other people who are specialists find their voice and be able to use it, then I am affecting climate change, then I am affecting gender equality in the world, then I am affecting all these other things. And it’s not because I have a specialization in those things. It’s because I’m just supporting those who are doing the work.”

Learn more about Andrea at voiceofinfluence.net and read her book, Unfrozen.

Patty Aubery



Why is it so hard for us to give ourselves permission?

“I think it’s in our DNA,” says Patty Aubery. And to begin to make a change is “learning how to be more present in the moment and doing it with intention. And, I always say, grace.”

Patty is President of the Jack Canfield Training Group and helped develop the Chicken Soup for the Soul book series, but it would be years before she gave herself permission to publish her own books.

She believes in the importance of sharing goals and vision with others, because you never know who will help you to achieve them.

Be sure to check out Patty’s latest book, Permission Granted. You can also learn more about Patty at pattyaubery.com.

Mary McManus



Despite vaccination, at the age of five, Mary McManus was diagnosed with Polio and was paralized from the neck down. Over time, Mary was able to regain movement, succeed in school, and pull herself above an abusive home life, only to be struck down again many years later with post-polio syndrome.

“I’ve got to choose,” says Mary. “Am I going to be in pain on the side of just withering away for the rest of my life? Or am I going to feel pain on the side of healing? I chose to feel pain on the side of healing.”
Facing the impossible, Mary set a lofty goal. She wanted to run the Boston Marathon. And, through passion and determination, she succeeded.

Mary has written five books, including her most recent book of poems, Hope is a Garden. You can learn more at marymcmanus.com.
