Charity Goodwin | Founder Of Speaking Life Leadership & Empowerment Coaching

Only after the stress and overwhelm took over her body, did she begin to listen to her heart. Today, Charity Goodwin facilitates, coaches, and speaks to inspire transformation in high-functioning, overachieving, perfectionists so that they live, lead, and love with boundaries, peace, and authenticity.

Goodwin is a Mizzou Journalism graduate. She completed a Master of Divinity from Saint Paul School of Theology in Kansas City. She returned to Columbia to serve as the Pastor of Discipleship for the Missouri United Methodist Church in 2015. There, she leads a new worship service called The City where she preaches weekly. The City’s vision is to form community, uncover purpose, and create heaven on earth. She was ordained in 2013. In 2015 she became a The Daring Way™ Certified Facilitator. She facilitates groups in the curricula created by Dr. Brené Brown. She is also completing her certification for emotional intelligence through Six Seconds.

Goodwin loves spending time with her two sons Gabriel, 7, and Levi, 5, trying new recipes and listening to podcasts. You can learn more about Charity via her website.

Kelly Howe | Owner of Kelly Howe Coaching

In 2004 Kelly graduated from the University of Missouri with a Bachelors in Nursing. After working as a nurse at the bedside for 10 years Kelly was left burned out and sick mentally, physically and spiritually and when “traditional” methods continued to fall short in her healing process, she had no choice but to get creative and look and think “outside the box” for a solution. It was at that time that she stumbled onto EFT(emotional freedom technique) and quickly realized the possibilities for healing not only mental blocks and limiting beliefs but rewiring the PHYSICAL reaction and programming of stress. This powerful tool quickly changed her life and set her on a course to share, educate and advocate for healing through both the mind and body.

After 8 years of training with the world’s top experts and traveling all over the United States, Kelly holds several advanced EFT certifications with mentors such as Dawson Church and Margaret Lynch.

Through public speaking, working with groups or one-on-one, she is passionate about educating the masses about the mind-body connection and how the unchecked stress response and the wounding of our past is plaguing our mental and physical health and holding us back from confidently living our greatest life.

Kelly now specializes in helping mission driven entrepreneurs and professionals who are stressed to the max, stuck in their business growth, and secretly battling with self-doubt. And shows them how to take their business to the next level by clearing inner blocks to success so they can fall back in love with life, earn more and create an abundant AND balanced life of meaning and impact. You can learn more about Kelly via her website.
