In these challenging times, Lynda Monroe inspires over 2 million people every month with her story of resilience and life coaching for success. When she was born, her doctor said that because of her congenital heart defect, she would not be more than 10 years old. She successfully defied adversity when she became a mother at the age of 17. However, as an unmarried mother, she was ostracized by her church family and had to mature quickly. These experiences and more motivated them to dig deep into themselves to put their feet on solid ground.

Now she is the executive director of a multimedia empire that is touching millions through her activism to help prisoners successfully reintegrate into society. Her business includes her podcast: The Lynda Monroe Show (with over 2 million streams per month), her websites, social media, and public speaking.

In the course of her career so far, she has released 50 inmates from prison and given them a second chance in life. In addition, she has successfully cared for over 1,000 prisoners. She is an extraordinary multimedia mogul who continues to take the world by storm.

Lynda seeks to inspire the world and has a special place in her heart for those present and formerly incarcerated. She says, "The prisons are full to the brim with untapped potential that deserves a second chance." She doesn't just talk, she goes for a walk and has five strategies to beat the odds:

1. Practice gratitude: Be grateful for your life, your health and your strength. Don't take anything for granted.

2. Make education and self-improvement a priority: No matter how long it takes, expand your mindset. You have only one mind and one life, and it is crucial to fully cultivate it.

3. Cultivate Your Creativity: Life Will Throw You Curveballs. When she was born she became the ultimate curveball of endangered health and with the help of family and God she was able to overcome her death sentence.

4. Have a Spirit of Service: Given the reality of how inmates live in prison, Lynda Monroe was full of compassion. This compassion gave rise to the idea for a prison ministry to help inmates reach their full potential.

5. Putting God First: Without faith, Lynda believes that it is impossible to please God. That is why it is important that everyone believe in themselves. Believe in the fruits of your labor; and the belief that everything will turn out fine in the end.

Lynda is a change agent who helps the forgotten in society get second chances through her prison activism, podcast and public speaking.
