Linda McKenney,  Personal Life Coach and Motivational Speaker

“I cannot change my life!”

(A common misconception held by many people)

When people or organizations feel stuck and hopeless, they have a story to support it.  They blame other people or circumstances.  They've lost sight of possibility and need help to do a rewrite.

Anyone can write a new story. 

As a Motivational Speaker, I can help you do just that. 

And I promise we'll laugh along the way.

Laughter can be the gateway to a new story.  Nothing works faster or more dependably to bring mind and body back into balance than a good laugh. Humor lightens burdens, inspires hopes, connects us, and keeps us grounded, focused, and alert.

Her speeches were unique, well prepared with an excellent mix of fact and entertainment.  She demonstrated excellent knowledge, clear communication skills, smooth presentation and a touch of humor to enlighten and delight the audience.”


“One of Linda's major assets is her ability to communicate with any size audience. Her presentation skills are extensive and very effective.
