Overcoming #MeToo Experiences and Launching Your Life Into Success

Painful memories from traumatic events - such as sexual harassment, sexual abuse and/or witnessing domestic violence - can result in serious stress and the inability to remain focused in business and personal life experiences. Women (and men) who are survivors of sexual harassment, sexual abuse and violence often feel shame in speaking up about their experiences. And in turn, they shut down their communication skills and creative brainpower in attracting personal success. Viewing situations at work, at home or in social communication becomes warped with a trauma lense and a person struggles with maintaining basic tasks.

In this 1 hour talk, Olympia LePoint shares her own personal story of overcoming sexual abuse and violence to later become an award-winning rocket scientist. Olympia LePoint shares tips from her book Answers Unleashed on how to remove negative thoughts associated with the past, so a woman (or man) can remove shame and replace it with self-worth for success. Renewed mental focus in school, the office, relationships and in entrepreneurship is the thriving result.
