Courage to Birth Dreams (Entrepreneurs/Professionals)

When a work injury ended her career as an award-winning, six-figure corporate sales rep, Angela Howell had to re-create the rest of her life. Starting with a list of skills and a few coincidences, Angela became a successful entrepreneur as a professional photographer and network marketer and now, author, speaker, and coach. Even before her injury, she felt trapped in her career, but afraid to do anything about it. Learn how to rise above societal norms and the pesky mental chatter that persuades you to stay in your predictable comfy box. What? Don’t know what your dreams even are? Not to worry, they may be buried, but you will learn how to excavate them. You can re-create your life too. It’s never too late to explore new ways to be fulfilled and to find the courage to birth new dreams!

How to Create A Life Worth Having (Using Everything You’ve Already Got) (Entrepreneurs/Professionals)

Yes, there really is more to life than this! But your best thinking got you here, so if you want something different, you’ve got to do something different. For starters, your mental software may be seriously outdated, requiring an immediate upgrade! In these sessions, you will:

  • Explore negative beliefs about yourself.
  • Examine your money mindset.
  • Assess life balance in eight key areas, using “The Wheel of Fortune.”
  • Find out how to use envy as a tool for leading a more fulfilling life.
  • Discover what you would do, if you could do anything!

Using her ten-module coaching curriculum, Angela Howell will customize a keynote speech, workshop or weekend conference using her guided exercises to reveal specific steps toward creating A Life Worth Having.

Unwrapping Inner Beauty

Delivered with humor and vulnerability, Angela uses stories from her past as a model and eating disorder survivor to reveal the secrets of true beauty—within ourselves and our ability to appreciate beauty in others. You will learn how to nurture your own inner beauty, while balancing societal pressures to focus more on the external wrappings rather than the gift itself. Using an on-stage wardrobe change, Angela demonstrates our innate tendency to size other women up by their external appearance and implores us to stop being our own worst enemies. Ideal audience is women in any of the following settings: women’s events, corporate wellness, entrepreneurs, recovery/disability, students

*This keynote can stand alone or is paired perfectly with a day or night of indulgent pampering such as makeup and hair stations, photo shoots, ten-minute massages, guided meditations, mindfulness techniques, and more!

A Mindful Employee is a Productive Employee: Why it Pays to Pay Attention

Presenteeism—I’m here, but I’m not all here—is a powerful foe in the workplace. How are you helping your employees find daily fulfillment and balance? Investing in your number one asset creates a win-win situation for everyone. Less stress, illness and mental fatigue (i.e. burnout prevention), boosts in memory and cognitive flexibility, and increased creativity and problem-solving all have a favorable impact on overall company success.

In your session, Angela will use real life situations, with a proper dose of humor, to reveal the need to become more mindful. She will teach simple, daily steps for developing a mindfulness practice anyone can implement immediately. Despite her success in corporate sales, Angela experienced major burnout as a result of not incorporating more balance and mindfulness into each day. She will help your employees “find the gift” again, at work and in life.

Ideal audience: corporate wellness

How My Eating Disorder Saved My Life

Angela Howell has long been on the road to personal freedom. She survived an early life of chaos, which led to a lengthy battle with anorexia and bulimia, including a total of twenty-four weeks inpatient over seven years and three separate hospitalizations. Angela credits a team of healthcare professionals plus twelve-step recovery for saving her life, not just physically, but emotionally and spiritually as well. She will share her compelling story of triumph with your group to spread a message of hope, because she still remembers what it was like to have none.

Angela will also provide eating disorder awareness education and prevention strategies. Attendees will leave the session changed after an up close and personal view into a life seriously impacted by an eating disorder. They will be equipped with the knowledge of how to spot the signs and symptoms of ED in themselves, or someone they care about. If they are in a relationship with someone struggling with ED, they will have a better understanding of what is helpful and what is not.

Ideal audience: eating disorders awareness and educational settings, recovery

Suffering is Ordinary: Opening the Gift of Adversity

“Suffering is ordinary!” That’s a hard pill to swallow for most people, especially those in recovery and others who have faced adversity. But it’s a necessary one if we want to transition away from an identity of dis-ease, dys-function, dis-ability and dis-order. During her session, Angela challenges her participants to become grateful for their pasts, to explore why they’re still here, and to “find the gift” in everything, even when life is gift-wrapped in obstacles. Angela will share these truths using stories from her personal experiences from being disabled from her successful sales career to her more than twenty years in recovery from anorexia and bulimia. She will leave your audience full of joy and hope!

Ideal audience: recovery, chronic illness/disability, life transition (job loss, divorce, grief), underserved youth and communities

The Body Project

The Body Project is supported by more research than any other body image program and has been found to reduce the onset of eating disorders. As described at, the Body Project is “a dissonance-based body-acceptance program designed to help high school girls and college-age women resist cultural pressures to conform to the thin-ideal standard of female beauty and reduce their pursuit of unhealthy thinness.” To date, the Body Project has been delivered to over 200,000 young women. Angela Howell is a trained facilitator for the Body Project, which can be presented in (2) two-hour sessions or (4) one-hour sessions. The ideal group size is eight to fourteen participants.

Ideal audience: women’s groups, high school and college students, athletes, women in recovery

Running from Church to Find God (and How He Brought Me Home)

Have you given up on God? Have you been hurt by church and well-meaning Christians? Do you consider spirituality and religion to mean the same thing, with both to be avoided at all costs? Angela Howell will share her extraordinary journey inside Christianity—from her early life as part of a radical, traveling ministry, caravanning from state to state, to many other extreme religious experiences, to becoming a God-hater, to finally finding spiritual peace and coming home.

Angela will help encourage you in your own faith journey, while helping you redefine what spirituality means to you. She will guide you to understanding the importance of nurturing your spirit—the God-given spark He put inside you that makes you unique and sets you apart from everyone else. Renew your passion to be in God’s presence, just you and Him, leaving all the junk from the past behind. Angela found a bridge home that worked for her and she will help you come home too.

Ideal audience: recovery, spiritual, faith
