Social Entrepreneurism: Making Money Doing What You Love

Dreams to Reality: Pursuing Your Passion at All Costs

Leading with Passion: Trailblazing in the Twenty-First Century

“You wake up everyday, and you choose your attitude.” This is just one of the many invigorating mantras of Alexis Jones, who believes that, with the right mindset, nothing is impossible to achieve. By encouraging a brave step outside of their comfort zones and taking bold moves to overcome fear, this talk inspires audiences to destroy their former ideas of “success” and discover fresh approaches to finding their own prosperity in the new millennium.

Be That Girl: Modern Girls on a Mission

Today’s expectations of beauty can leave many girls and women feeling like outsiders. However, Alexis Jones wants to redefine the meaning of “beautiful” and ignite an empowering revolution for females that will help them see themselves in a different light. This inspiring talk reveals the reality behind many of the images women see in the media and explains the pitfalls of relying on outside appearance as a measurement of self-worth. Instead, Alexis encourages girls to look inward for purpose, value, and power. What does it mean to be a powerful woman? How can you find strength in your imperfections? How can you use your unique voice to lift up other women instead of tearing them down? Alexis will answer these questions and teach you how to be that independent, confident girl who dares to lead other women into changing the world.
