Mindy Henderson is a motivational speaker and writer in Austin, TX. Living life from a wheelchair, the challenges she has overcome have pushed her to achieve great success and now make her uniquely qualified to motivate others. Despite living life from a wheelchair, on her list of credits are:
Bachelors and Masters degrees
A 15-year career in software, leading teams of highly skilled professionals
Multiple singing appearances on national television
A CD recorded with George Strait’s guitar and bass players accompanying her
A long list of public speaking credits, addressing thousands of volunteers of the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), MDA staff and corporate executives for companies such as 7- 11, Acosta, 7-Up and ERA
A one-on-one battle fought and won with the government of China and a successful trip to one of the least wheelchair accessible countries on the planet to adopt her daughter.
A passion for making the impossible, possible.
Her mission is to move and inspire people to realize when they take responsibility and OWN their adversity, they become better, stronger people and their potential is revealed. Mindy helps people see how to live more productively and positively, to roll with the punches and to stop making excuses. The passion Mindy feels about her work comes down to a deep desire to bring a positive point of view to the world around her.
Seeing wasted potential and hearing excuses for not trying are two of her biggest pet-peeves. And as she, herself, has said on many occasions, “the best way to get me to do something is to tell me I can’t!”
