    Mindy Henderson - Purpose Driven

    Mindy Henderson - Purpose Driven

    Show Notes

    Many people search for their purpose.  For Mindy Henderson, purpose found her.  She gave her first speech at the age of 4.  Mindy was the Texas representative for the Jerry Lewis Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) Telethon. 

    I was honored to talk with speaker, author and coach Mindy Henderson about change, determination and life as an entrepreneur.     She was recently recognized by Austin Woman Magazine as a Woman to Watch. 

    About Mindy:
    Mindy Henderson is a Motivational Speaker, Writer, Coach, Host of “The Truth About Things That Suck” podcast and guest contributor of “Morning Motivational Tips” on CBS Austin’s “We Are Austin” lifestyle morning show.

    Living life from a wheelchair, the challenges Mindy has overcome have cultivated the very skills she needed to achieve almost every goal she's ever set for herself.  This makes her uniquely qualified to motivate others to see their potential. 

    Despite living life from a wheelchair, on her list of credits are:
    • Bachelors and Masters degrees
    • A 15-year career in software, leading teams of highly skilled professionals
    • Multiple singing appearances on national television
    • A CD recorded with George Strait’s guitar and bass players accompanying her
    • A long list of public speaking credits, addressing thousands of volunteers of the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), MDA staff and corporate executives
    • A one-on-one battle fought and won with the government of China and a successful trip to one of the least wheelchair accessible countries on the planet to adopt her daughter
    • A passion for making the impossible, possible.

    Mindy helps people see how to live more productively and positively, to roll with the punches and to work to accomplish all they are capable of.  Her mission is to move and inspire people to realize when they take responsibility, stop making excuses and OWN their adversity, they become better, stronger people and their potential is revealed.
