1) Cynthia Occelli. Author, mother, businesswoman with a law degree. Cynthia made a huge impression on me back in 2014 when I heard her inspiring quote: ”
“For a seed to achieve its greatest expression, it must come completely undone. The shell cracks, its insides come out and everything changes. To someone who doesn’t understand growth, it would look like complete destruction.”
A former 9th-grade dropout and welfare mom, Cynthia turned her life around, graduated from law school, built her dream business and home, and successfully raised two conscientious children. Cynthia is the founder of The Beautiful Life School, an online academy for women who want to reinvent their lives. She’s also a member of the Leadership Circle at Visionary Women. Cynthia’s mission is to end all preventable suffering by supporting and strengthening the most powerful force of change in the world, women. Cynthia is humble, down to earth, and approachable, yet confident and profound. You can find her at www.cynthiaoccelli.com. Follow her on Facebook!
