Tricia is a “performance expert” where she helps others tell their stories whether that is from a stage or the big screen. She believes that speaking is something that we all can learn. She has a passion for fusing together principles from the entertainment industry and tactics from public speaking to help speakers become more engaging and confident.

In this episode, we discuss how she got started in speaking and her journey in becoming a TEDx organizer. We explore several powerful topics including how to overcome failure, how to effectively look to others for inspiration, and her five tips on how to get started in speaking.

Tricia’s mission is to “nurture the the potential speaker” in you. She believes that we all have a message to give. This episode will empower you to use your authentic voice and confidently share your message.

Linda Mitchell

Linda Mitchell is more than qualified to help women reach a point of empowerment . As an Institute of Integrative Nutrition graduate, an award-winning fitness competitor, and elite obstacle racer. she collaborated on the fitness portion of the book “Fat Flush for Life” with mentor and New York Times Best Selling author Ann Louise Gittleman. This book was listed in Time magazine as one of the top ten diet books for 2009. As a former columnist for 12 years for Ms. Fitness magazine, Linda decided to put everything into a book and it really evolved and became “The Sisterhood of S.W.E.A.T.”.  Her book and the studio are all about helping women build confidence and self-esteem and learning to feel 100% great about themselves.    

Mitchell launched The Chickfit Studio in 2013. She says “At Chickfit, our priority is building women’s self-confidence. Our belief is that their newfound self-love will transfer into giving support and love to one another. Self-improvement equals empowerment.”

Mitchell was inspired to open The Chickfit Studio after she found that deep down in her heart she wanted to do something that was worthwhile and made real, lasting changes in people’s lives. She opened The Chickfit Studio after working as a group fitness director and personal trainer for about 25 years.
