Motivational and Inspirational Speaker, Direct Selling Leader
In 1995 LaDonna Brock was left paralyzed from the waist down by a self-inflicted, accidental gunshot wound, but it certainly has not paralyzed her tenacious love for life. For the past 15 years she has been speaking in high schools and middle schools, churches and to various civic groups about trauma prevention through a national program called Think First – Use Your Mind To Protect Your Body.
LaDonna has also had a direct sales business and been a leader in Celebrating Home for the past 12 years. Although she expected to do every party in her home, which was accessible, she has instead gone wherever her hostesses invited her, including to homes in other states. She’s never had the attitude of being paralyzed; never looked at the situations as obstacles, but instead as opportunities; never had an ‘I can’t’ or ‘I quit’ attitude; never thought she could do any less than what she put her mind – and heart – to do.
Her heart is in making a difference. Whether forever changing the life of a child by helping them realize the power in their choices – be it day to day – buckle up or wear your helmet – or planning for their future with career or college decisions; or helping a young mother realize there is a way for her to help with the family income and still be a stay at home mom; or help the retired senior realize there is a way to have additional income in ways that go beyond the door greeter job; or helping the single (or married) mom that’s working three jobs already, just barely making ends meet, realize there is a way to make that much and more by working far less hours; or helping that wife that would like to contribute on those expensive items – like new carpet, a lawnmower, the second car, the kid’s college fund, or the basic needs in an ever changing economy; or the everyday person, man or woman, that enjoys helping other people get what they want, helping them decorate their world and get some extra cash in the process…they all matter to the person whom she’s able to connect with, and they are all situations in which she makes a difference!
From the beginning of her speaking all those years ago, to the privilege of being Ms.Wheelchair Kentucky in 2001, to the impact of empowering your team or organization, LaDonna’s passion is following God’s plan for her life and touching lives at every opportunity! Her positive outlook and attitude are contagious and inspiring!
