In 2013 David Sandy had come off a year of foot problems that had caused his weight to go to 440+. He was in the process of shutting down his law practice. He had a side business called Nameperfection (http://www.nameperfection.com) that generated some income selling brandable domain names for startups on the internet. He briefly tried selling life insurance before deciding to focus on the domain name business that seemed to be going fairly well until Google and industry changes made it necessary to regroup.
He had started to make progress when his mother was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer in 2014. She passed away in July of that year. In 2015, David struggled with health problems himself and managed to control them with a Ketogenic diet that allowed him to lose down to 355.
However, the diet, like all diets before, had stopped working and made him cold and sapped his energy. His thyroid levels had started to become hypothyroid.
In early 2016, he found information indicating that fasting could help control blood sugar levels and tried not eating for 18 hours. Seeing the dramatic effect even such a limited window of not eating had he figured that maybe fasting could work for weight loss.
He tried longer and longer fasting periods and passed below 240 on his last 20 day fast, a weight he figures he has not seen since sixth or seventh grade. In addition to the domain name business that has picked up, he has started a personal blog at http://prudently.com to talk about fasting and his life experiences up to this point.

I’ve been on a healthy eating journey for many years. Starting at age 28 when I discovered I was severely hypoglycemic, I’ve adjusted and changed my diet and the eating habits of those around me.
This journey has most recently led me to remove all processed foods, gluten and preservatives from my diet. The change in how I feel both physically and emotionally has been the inspiration for my blog, ThinStrongHealthy.com, and for a new business driven by my desire to see others make the same life changing adjustments. An unexpected result of these changes is a significant drop in weight.
I have consistently kept to this eating regimen for the past 4 years now, and the changes I’ve experienced I now share via article writing in an online news publication, products and blog posts and my new TV show titled, Thin Strong Healthy”.
Imagine… Americans changing the way they eat and losing weight without trying and without subjecting themselves to “diets” and the resulting yo-yo weight lose then gain we see happen all the time. Imagine needing to watch your weight so you don’t become too thin. It can be a reality.
My earliest childhood memory is putting my younger sister in a garment bag in my grandparent’s attic and not being able to get her out. I was probably 5 years old. I think the memory is clear because I was terrified of getting in trouble, which finally motivated me to get her out of the bag…
When I was 12 years old, the Beatles arrived in the US. I loved the song, “She Loves You”…mostly the “yeah, yeah, yeah part….
I don’t watch much TV. No drama, but I love old black and white movies. Late 30s through mid 50s.
My mission is to share my discoveries to benefit those around me.
I didn’t learn this… I live it!

Trista Signe Ainsworth was born and raised in Oregon. She grew up living out in the country with her parents and younger brother. She remembers when her mom showed her a cookbook for children that she used when she was a child. Trista was thrilled and the first recipe she tried in the book was cinnamon toast. Later on she made lemonade and other recipes from the book. She felt proud and thrilled to be making dishes for her family. Her first “commercial venture” was selling some “biscuits” that she made from flour and water on her family’s deck.

“Country music hits the heart, and feeds the soul; it’s the story of all our lives in one way or another.” That’s Madelyn Victoria’s perspective on the depth of Country music and just one of many reasons why this talented young vocalist and songwriter from Deep South Texas decided to pursue a career in the Country Music industry.
Madelyn Victoria was born on September 2nd, 1990 in Harlingen, TX, and has literally been influenced by Country music since then. “My obstetrician, Doctor Hughston, had Country music playing throughout the operating room while he delivered me! I think that’s the coolest thing, and one of the many reasons why I love Country music so much.” Her penchant for singing and performing was evident at an early age, with only a brush as a microphone, and coffee table as a stage, Madelyn would perform for her family singing along to George Strait, Alan Jackson, Selena, and more. She then had her first public performance at a San Benito High School Christmas Play when she was only five years old. “I remember feeling nervous but loving it at the same time… the nerves slowly went away with every performance after that… this is what I was born to do.” Eager to continue singing and performing, she entered local talent competitions and pageants in South Texas, earning top awards and gaining recognition throughout her youth.
At the age of 13, Madelyn became a part of her church choir and no more than a year later, alongside her Pastor Dr. Dwayne Spearman, she became the lead vocalist for her church. At around the same time, Madelyn wrote her first song. Influences from nature, family, faith, hope, love, and life time experiences led Madelyn to start writing. “I hope to have my music playing in the background at backyard BBQ’s and at honkytonks, at weddings and parties… and hope my music and songs are able to show people the love of Jesus Christ.”
In 2006, Madelyn undertook training with Barbizon School of Talent in Dallas to perfect her showmanship and presentation. She was then selected by DMG Management of Dallas to attend the Modeling Association of America International Competition and Convention in New York in 2007 held at the Waldorf Astoria where she dazzled the judges with her rendition of “Real Fine Place to Start” by Sara Evans. Madelyn out-sang all other competitors to win the vocal competition. Other categories she competed in included Soap Opera, TV Commercial, and Photo Posing receiving 2nd Runner Up and honorable mentions, respectively. To gain additional exposure that same year, Madelyn Victoria auditioned to perform with the Radio Disney Superstars of Dallas, was selected, and had the opportunity to be a part of the opening act for pop boy band sensation The Jonas Brothers. Soon after, Madelyn was trained to become an acting and vocal performance coach for Barbizon, showcases for iPOP, and for Studio 92 in Dallas, TX.
Without formal voice lessons, Madelyn Victoria relied heavily on the music programs offered at her high school to cultivate her voice. As a member and section leader of the San Benito High School Choir, Madelyn received Superior ratings for two consecutive years at the Texas State Solo & Ensemble Competition. She also competed in the FFA Talent Contest series winning District, Area, and qualified as a State finalist where she performed at the Texas FFA Convention at the Texas Tech Arena in Lubbock, Texas before an audience of 5,000. Her varied interest in music led her to study Mariachi for two years, where she further developed her voice and honed her skills playing guitar. She was recognized as All Region Mariachi Female Vocalist, 1st Chair during her senior year. Competing at the University of Texas Pan American Festiva de Artes vocal competition in Edinburg, TX in 2009, Madelyn Victoria received its most prestigious award, Vocal Champion, and was given the opportunity to open for the world renowned Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlan. To diversify her singing repertoire, Madelyn briefly received opera vocal training and participated in Master Chorale and the Bravo Opera Company at the University of Texas Brownsville, in the fall of 2009. However, Madelyn Victoria’s true passion resides in country music. The array of styles within country music, the unique fan base, and grounded artists were most compelling and a natural fit for her own sound and aspirations. “Country music represents a lifestyle that I live, and want to live… words and music that help me with the ups and downs of this crazy life, and to rejoice and love the life our Lord gave us.”
Currently, Madelyn Victoria and her own band perform at local venues, honkytonks, bars, and events in south Texas. Names in Country music, including Nashville and Texas recording artists, that she has opened up for and shared the stage with have been Easton Corbin, Turnpike Troubadours, Tracy Lawrence, Kevin Fowler, Clay Walker, Josh Thompson, Dustin Lynch, Zac Brown Band, The Charlie Daniels Band, and more. Madelyn also sings the National Anthem at United League games, and at local high school sporting events, political rallies, patriotic ceremonies, rodeos, and stock shows, including the 2009 Los Fresnos PRCA Rodeo in Los Fresnos, Texas where Madelyn Victoria was crowned the inaugural Rodeo Queen. This was one of many crowns she has earned including Cameron County Cowgirl, being her high school’s homecoming queen, Miss Texas Homecoming Queen, and 2nd Runner Up for Americas Homecoming Queen. In December of 2012, Madelyn performed in Las Vegas (Planet Hollywood and at the NFR Rodeo) as the Shania Twain Sing-Off Contest Winner. Madelyn Victoria plays the guitar, writes the lyrics & melody to all her songs, and collaborates with her brother and other musicians to write the accompanying music. Madelyn not only has a passion for singing and songwriting, but for helping others and donating her time to the community. She volunteers at local Motor Training events for special needs children, sings to the children at hospitals and rehab centers and started her own annual event called “Octave Higher Christmas”. Her hopes are that one day, it will become a large non-profit organization and that it can reach out to children throughout the US and all over the world. Madelyn Victoria’s music can be purchased on iTunes and can be heard on YouTube.
“I sing because I believe I have a talent from God and hope to be like a shining light to this world, making as many friends as I can, and to be a role model for young girls and women everywhere.”

What if you could help those you lead, teach, or serve to:
• STOP holding back due to needless self-doubt
• GO for more challenging assignments/promotions/opportunities
• FEEL and ACT more confident
These results have become a REALITY for my clients in the US, Canada, and Europe.
I'd like your organization (or YOU) to get these same results.
You see, millions of people secretly worry they're not as intelligent or capable as others see them. It’s called the Impostor Syndrome. And it hurts individuals AND the bottom line.
► WHO I SERVE
❷ Higher Ed
❹ Professionals & Entrepreneurs
❺ Charitable orgs
► HOW I SERVE
My signature keynote is called:
“How To Feel As Bright And Capable As They THINK You Are: Why Capable People Suffer From Impostor Syndrome And How To Thrive In Spite Of It”
This interactive, often humorous, surprisingly upbeat, and always practical message has been delivered to over 80 THOUSAND people!
► UNIQUE PERSPECTIVE
Contrary to what psychologists say, you can’t share your way out of impostor syndrome.
Confident people aren’t more intelligent, capable, or talented. The only difference is they think different thoughts. Period.
My Approach: “If you want to stop FEELING like an impostor, you need to stop THINKING like an impostor.”
► UNIQUELY QUALIFIED
I’m not a psychologist or an academic. So when I speak to…
LEADERS/EMPLOYEES: I do so as a former Fortune 200 company manager who knows how self-doubt hurts individual performance AND efforts to attract, retain, and advance bright people
STUDENTS: Having earned an advanced degree I get what they’re up against
ENTREPRENEURS: I know how confidence holds them back because I’ve coached thousands of self-bossers
WOMEN: I literally wrote the book on this topic
ANY AUDIENCE: I put impostor feelings in a social context based on years in the diversity field

The past three years can best be described by this theme: “Going beyond comfortable and experiencing new heights.”
This occurred in each of three primary areas of my life:
1) As a Mom of 3 kids: I have experienced the joy of watching them grow into unique individual as two are teens and one a pre-teen. They are also all roller-coaster junkies and the past 2 years, we have gone on an amusement park and Major league baseball stadium quest. This has taken us to multiple cities and into Canada where we have experience different cultures and cuisines. Also as port of the amusement park tours, I have pushed beyond my fear of heights to experience a being launched at 120 miles per hour straight up 420 feet. The ride lasts 17 seconds. I also experienced virtual reality while riding a roller coaster this past summer.
2) As a professional speaker and business owner, I came out from behind the curtain a little bit to host my own 1-day event. I have helped run many other people’s events and have spoken at many other events but this was my first solo event. I learned a lot and it was a great experience. I have also expanded my business to greater heights by fully stepping into my strengths as an intuitive and a business consultant. The blend of both talents has been very powerful. It also propelled me to launch my new website www.thrivingentrepreneur.com
3) As a teacher- I teach at The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and I love teaching. I broke the mold first by teaching 4 classes in one day and then last year teaching 5 classes back to back. For an MBA program, this is a lot of classes. I found that teaching this many classes has allowed me to impact more students.
The common thread for all of these experiences and what has supported me to go to new heights has been mindset and having what I call a “thriving mindset” which is one that is always moving forward.

If you understand that all business development, acceleration and growth is limited by only one thing. The mind sets of those who are doing the development. If you are well aware of this then you are a huge step towards understanding the importance of your unconscious and how working to change your programs and beliefs is one of the most important things you can do to accelerate your business success. The law of attraction is fundamentally about attracting the feelings you have in your body. If you can not feel excited or good about what you want to attract then this is a good way to make sure it never comes to you. Often our unconscious beliefs are stopping us attracting the very things we want. By working with the unconscious and changing how we FEEL, it is easier to get what we want. I read an article on happiness recently by Richard Branson, he made it clear that wealth did not make him happy, happiness made him wealthy. This is how the law of attraction works. Faster EFT works to totally transform the unconscious beliefs you hold around all aspects of your life. This makes it easier to use the part of your brain that is creative and most importantly FEEL AWESOME and therefore attract more of what you want into your life.
