CHALLENGE TO TRIUMPH

Discover Your Ability To Overcome Challenges & Live Your Wildest Dreams

As a formerly incarcerated single mother, Linda Argila is no stranger to challenge and adversity. Linda’s struggles span out over two decades, when she faced serious personal, financial, and legal issues. However, rather than allowing herself to become a victim, Linda created daily routines and practices that helped her to not only overcome unfortunate circumstances, but to start living a life of purpose and passion and pursuing her dreams.

In this eye-opening keynote, Linda reveals a radically different approach to personal development: instead of pretending we live in a world where problems don’t exist, we can prepare ourselves with proven real-life practical solutions and build a foundation of resilience. So, when the waves of life come crashing down, we don’t get swept away.

GROWING CONNECTIONS THROUGH ADVERSITY

Relationships Are The Key To Personal & Professional Success

Let’s face it – starting a business is hard enough on anyone. But when you’re starting with limited capital, or in the face of adversity, getting off the ground is even harder. When Linda Argila was released from Danbury Federal Prison, she had a young daughter to care for, no money, no job, no connections, and a criminal record. Talk about a rough start! Despite these setbacks, Linda launched an award-winning career as a professional fundraiser, growing to raise $30 million for charitable organizations. She established relationships with large corporations, politicians, celebrities, spiritual leaders, renowned visual artists, and some of the biggest philanthropists in the world.

In this heartfelt and very practical presentation, Linda will share skills she developed as she transformed her life from rock bottom to success as an entrepreneur, such as how to build confidence through adversity, grow deeper connections by sharing your personal story, and authentic approaches to cultivating more meaningful personal and professional relationships.

MY PRISON WORKOUT

The Daily Practices That Will Free Your Mind

Everyone has struggles (big or small) at some point, and it can feel like we are trapped. Too often our mind becomes prisoner to unpleasant experiences holding us back from our full potential. Linda Argila has had her share of life’s ups and downs, but after a series of devastating events, including incarceration, she discovered ways to use her challenges and setbacks as an opportunity for personal growth.

In this powerful presentation, the former inmate turned award-winning professional fundraiser reveals
My Prison Workout™, the highly effective regimen inspired by her prison experience that got her into the best physical, emotional, and spiritual shape of her life while behind bars.

Attendees will discover how they can incorporate these same strategies into their own life to create self-happiness and build greater resiliency. Linda’s story illustrates how even the most unexpected and extreme hardships can reveal life-sustaining lessons and will inspire audiences to see their own struggles in a new and positive light.
