About the speaker
Nationally renowned motivational speaker and entrepreneur, Alexa Carlin has dedicated her life to doing one thing: inspiring people to be authentic and pursue their passions.
Alexa founded her first company while in high school where she donated a percentage of proceeds to help build schools in Africa. Since then, she has been passionate about making a difference in others lives and in the world. In 2011, she founded the inspirational blog Hello Perfect®, with the mission to promote self-love in girls and women which then grew to becoming a 501©3 non-profit organization.
Her most recent entrepreneurial endeavor is the Women Empower Expo which became the largest women’s expo in South Florida in its first year in 2016. In 2017 she has expanded the business to hosting two events in Fort Lauderdale and Washington DC. In college, Alexa’s life changed forever. Sepsis took over her body and she was induced into a medical coma given a one percent chance of living. This life-changing experience inspired Alexa to share her story to positively impact the lives of others.
She is also the author and publisher of “The Simple Gluten-Free Vegan Cookbook”, a recipe guide of healing plant-based recipes to help others incorporate more plant-based meals into their diet and become healthier, from the inside out. Genuine by nature, caring at heart: for Alexa, this is merely the tip of the iceberg. Alexa’s passionate yet entertaining style and message speaks to all ages at their own level, helping them understand the true potential they hold.
“It is the choices we make in life that determine who we are going to be. Listen to your heart, be guided by your intuition, and know that at any moment you have the opportunity to change your life.”
Her stories connect. Her lessons inspire. Best of all - Alexa’s words stick. Today, Alexa resides in South Florida amongst her family and friends who inspire her daily. She is active on social media and has become a leader in the women’s empowerment movement attracting over 70,000 followers.
When not speaking onstage or running her business, Alexa can be found writing her next book, participating in community events, or playing with her toy poodle, Nala.

Our amazing coffee sponsor this month is Subculture Coffee. They have a great story of their own. “March 3, 2014 was the day Subculture Coffee was born. It’s a story of two local guys, Rodney and Sean, who believed in two simple things: the coffee culture and this city.
The day we opened, and every day since, has consisted of roasting and brewing coffee the best we know how in a space that allows people from all walks of life to connect. We strongly believe in fostering a community of diversity and expression, one that brings soul to our city.”

Alchemy cold-pressed juice is the result of a two-step process. The produce is slowly triturated, or ground up, and then that pulp is exposed to a tremendous amount of pressure, where the phytochemicals, vitamins, minerals and nutrients are extracted with the juice. The result is a more nutritionally dense juice with a very low rate of oxidation. This process allows the juice to be bottled and maintain 100% of its vital nutrients for 72 hours. Most household juicers use centrifugal motion to ‘spin’ the juice from the shredded produce. While the latter process is faster, the juice is heated and susceptible to rapid oxidation, which greatly diminishes its enzyme content.
