Turning Obstacles Into Opportunities

You have a goal in mind, an idea you’re passion about, a job to do in your organization, but now what? Where do you start? How do you overcome daily obstacles from performing well in school, being involved, making an impact and having a social life?

There will always be obstacles and challenges that come our way and for our entire lives we are taught on how to “overcome obstacles”, but Alexa has found a better solution. In this impactful keynote Alexa not only empowers students to get started, but she challenges their way of thinking and provides actionable tools and steps to turn any idea into reality- regardless of the obstacles they face.

Our obstacles can do one of two things, they can either stop us or propel us- Alexa wants to ensure you choose the latter. Audiences will learn the framework on how to push through challenges, develop a positive mindset, and create a customized action plan to achieve any goal whether that’s planning a fundraiser for their organization, getting the job of their dreams, or pursuing an entrepreneurial idea.

The Confidence Spectrum

Let’s be honest, being confident is hard. Think back to the last time you felt most confident. What were you doing, who were you with, what do you think impacted your level of confidence?

In today’s society, it’s so easy to fall into the comparison mindset. Women are inundated with messages and the pressure to be perfect that it can become paralyzing and create an unhealthy competitive environment.

As the Founder of the largest event for female entrepreneurs and change leaders, Alexa has discovered that the key to success is empowering women to collaborate versus compete. In order to achieve this students must first develop their own self-confidence and understand their worth.

In this empowering and inspiring keynote,  Alexa helps students connect and collaborate while offering tools to develop their own self-confidence, learning how to break through the fear holding them back from becoming an authentic leader.

Learning Outcomes

  • strategies on how to build unwavering confidence,
  • how to identify when they feel most confident and how they can build upon it when put in new situations,
  • how to overcome the need for outside validation,
  • techniques to break through the fear of judgement, failure, and feeling unworthy,
