“After tragic stories of young women being harassed and cyber bullied, seeing how the media portrays women, and women being under-represented in media, it’s time to power up the voices and get more women energized through a caring and supportive network of people who know what it takes to achieve success. These women are not afraid to discuss their challenges or even failure along the way,” says Breakenridge.

On the show, Cornell shares his journey from professional athlete to Master Motivator, author, and speaker. After an injury that prevented him from playing pro basketball, instead of saying, “Why me?” Cornell quickly challenged himself to “What now?” He discussed how the power of his own positivity and the wise words of his loving mom propelled him forward and to help others. Today, he’s gathering great thinkers and thought leaders for a Positivity Summit in 2017, which not only shares a day of inspiration but also a day of giving back. Cornell believes you have to go through pain to find your purpose. For him, a purpose is not an occupation. To find yours, you must open your eyes and have the right mindset because it’s all around you.
