What is your story of owning our Inner Dominatrix that you will bring to the listeners (how are you showing up in a bold way)?
Cindy was born with a 20% chance of living, heart failure and structural damage on the left side of her body. Following three heart surgeries, she was left with lifetime chronic pain and illness. Beating all odds, Cindy worked hard to develop the skills and knowledge to build her career but was having little success in the beginning because she came across too aggressive. It was the stress she was carrying that caused her presence to push people away instead of draw them in. In learning how to present herself brilliantly, despite it all, she is now enjoying a full and successful career.
Every single person on this planet have stressors in their life and that stress is carried in the speaking voice and body language — how a person delivers what they have to say. It can make or break whether someone can be highly influential or not. Having learned on a deep level what it takes to show up as your best self, no matter what, Cindy is now passionate about elevating her clients to do the same so they can boost their conversions.
What message would you love to get out in the world?
Cindy would love it if more people could realized that it’s really amazing how important it is for us to be truly connected to who we are so we can be relaxed and open and confident, but also interact with people in a way that’s more authentic.
What is your next project that I can shine a light on in the interview?
You can catch Cindy on her cross-country tour this winter!
