Elaine Powell

Napoleon Hill shared that those who are successful follow the ‘Decide Commit Resolve Methodology.’  They Decide to do something, then commit, and ultimately Resolve to work it out.  Most people don’t live life that way.  They try to Resolve how they are going to do it in advance and many times give up or become disempowered.  If they push through the Resolve, then they Decide to Commit.  But by that time, opportunities, momentum, and empowerment can be lost.  

Elaine Powell is known as The Thought Disruptor™️ Keynote Speaker who supports organizations to develop the human potential with thinking disciples that elevates their workforce’s performance and results.  She is the very example of living by the Decide, Commit Resolve Methodology.

In 2022, Elaine Decided to trust her intuition to deliver keynotes in the USA.  She Committed and implemented the Resolve by applying for an O-1B visa.  Seven months later Elaine received her three-year work visa and is now living in Atlanta.  She is following her dreams of delivering outstanding keynotes transforming individuals and organizations in the USA.

Ramon Peralta

Superheroes all have unique origin stories in the form of traumatic incidents that not only become the source of their superpowers and drive them to make a difference in the lives of others.

Born to immigrants, Ramon had no choice but to work at his father’s auto repair business from a very young age which kept him off the streets and helped him contribute. When his father exited from the business, Ramon realized how the lack of financial literacy had put him at a disadvantage. This experience would make a tremendous impact on his own passion for entrepreneurship many years later. 

Ramon served on the start-up team behind the initial launch of priceline.com and while many saw financial gain during the dot com era, Ramon found himself part of a massive layoff during the Great Recession of 2008. 

It was during this difficult time that Ramon decided to use his severance package to start a business dedicated to helping others launch their brands and Peralta Design was born.

Today, having built an award-winning digital agency from the ground up, Ramon is a published author and TEDx speaker. He has been hired to speak by universities, banks, and business incubators about the power of branding. He also serves on various non-profit boards and in his free time speaks to at-risk youth, encouraging them to dream big. 

Ramon also enjoys serving as a business mentor to many small businesses through various accelerator programs and provides guidance even when they may not be able to afford the agency’s full suite of services. Ramon’s own brand story of overcoming adversity and using failure as a pathway to success inspires entrepreneurs, corporate leaders, and students alike.  

Jacine Greenwood 


Jacine Greenwood is a true inspiration to all those who aspire to turn adversity into opportunity. Despite undergoing five spinal surgeries with fusion, Jacine refused to let her debilitating pain and physical limitations define her. Instead, she embraced the power of neuroplasticity, the science of rewiring the brain, to build a multimillion-dollar business empire in three countries.

Jacine’s journey began with her diagnosis of degenerative disc disease, a condition that causes the discs to degenerate and compress the nerves, leading to chronic pain and weakness in the limbs. Using a combination of physical therapy, meditation, and visualization techniques, Jacine retrained her brain to focus on positive outcomes, rather than the chronic pain she faced.

Today, Jacine is a true inspiration to others who are struggling with chronic pain or physical limitations. She is a living example of the power of neuroplasticity to transform lives, and she is committed to sharing her knowledge and experience with others. Through her motivational speeches, Jacine empowers people to overcome challenges and build successful businesses, regardless of obstacles.

Jacine’s story is a testament to the human spirit’s power and the human brain’s resilience. She reminds us that we are all capable of achieving greatness, no matter our challenges.

“The brain is designed to be trained and rewired; most people don’t know how to train it.  There is absolutely nothing that cannot be overcome with consistent repetition of thought patterns and action.”

Marisa Padilla

Marisa Padilla is a thought leader, philanthropist and known as “The manifest queen.” Marisa is here to share and speak with you why this time in your life has never been better to start believing, loving, and living the life of your dreams.

To see all your hearts desires come to fruition. To live, truly live you must know that means to be resilient. We must be resilient in the pursuit of our desires… our deepest desires. True joy is not found in the feeling of being “happy”. What is happy? Happy is a feeling that comes and goes. Joy is a way of life.

Marisa says nothing worth anything comes easy. Truth… the truth is the only thing that will set you free. You must be truthful with yourself. Life will never be easy and living your life settling is not being truthful with yourself. Truly… no one is happy “settling”. Settling is safe and complacent is empty… unfulfilling. “Getting by and making up our minds that is the life we have so we might as well go along with it….?!?!? That is no life for anyone. You must take the risk…. We were made to build…. To create… To be resilient so that we can leave a legacy.

Right now, in this moment you are helping human beings who must be resilient every single day of their lives. All of us… every single one of us know what it is to suffer, and Marisa says that no one’s pain is greater than someone else’s. We all experience pain, and we all feel what it is to lose, to hurt, to feel alone, to feel inadequate, to feel isolated as if no one could possibly understand what we are going through and that is where our connection is formed.

From the “truth” the real raw truth. We are connected through our pain. testimony makes every hardship every single hardship worth it. Resilience is bravery. Be brave and keep on your pursuit! We don’t just go through the pain we have to learn how to grow through the pain. The above picture is from Marisa’s key note at Think Resilience in Ireland.
