Lisa Alexander and her husband have two children. The youngest, just before his second birthday somehow managed to pull a 70lb TV on top of himself. Our oldest screamed and I ran in to find only our son's feet sticking out from the TV. I threw the TV and began to pray like you've never heard a mother pray before. He was rushed to the hospital and we were told the fluid that cushions the brain was leaking. There was nothing they could do. That was a Friday night. Somewhere between Saturday night and early Sunday morning the leaking stopped. He was brought in by ambulance on a Friday and walked out on his own by Sunday. We went through lots of physical therapy and 10 years later he's an amazing student and athlete. I believe in miracles. I live with one.
Lisa Alexander lives by this quote "I control the stories I tell myself." I get to choose."


Linda Leon says her mother was very inspirational.  She made be believe that I could do anything that I wanted in life and that hard work pays off.
Linda Leon says one of the things that shaped her life was hardship and adversity have made me a better person, given me perspective and showed me the things that are really important in life.  What is important is peace of mind and a thriving family.
The quote Linda lives by is Get over it and get on with it.  Why - Life is too short to spend a lot of time considering the past, especially events that were difficult.  Power comes when you set yourself in forward motion, make the best of a bad situation and succeed.
Linda Leon has written two books that will be out soon - Publishing and Publicity for Smart People and Rock Star Marketing for the Emerging Author.
