Cindra was AMAZING! Everyone loved her, she was super personable and kind. We bought a ton of books from her website and she brought the books with her instead of charging us shipping which she didn’t need to do and was so nice of her. She signed every single person’s book and everyone LOVED her content! Huge hit!

I have seen Cindra speak twice and both times she has captivated the audience with her enthusiasm and her real life examples of finding passion. She is able to connect with a wide audience- young, old, women, men, business people and athletes. The takeaways from her presentation are easy to apply to all aspects of my life, both personal and professional. She is one of the best motivational speakers I have ever seen!
Committee Chair, Tax Executives Institute
Cindra was a spark of inspiration for our staff! They loved her energy. Our staff really enjoyed learning how important goal setting is, learning how to control the controllables, as well as their comfort and courage zones. They were excited after she left and were ready to ‘Get Gritty’. Great content!
Cindra leads and unforgettable training full of inspiration and energy. She engages everyone in the crowd and can get even the least enthusiastic person in the room on their feet! We loved having her and plan to continue including her in our training and development programs in the future.
