Feeling stuck and captive even after trying therapy, self-help seminars and a life coach? As a teenager, Cheryl Hunter was abducted by two criminals who held her captive, beat and raped her, and left her for dead. After she was rescued, Cheryl still felt captive and stuck. “Captivity is part of the human condition. Waiting for 'someday' or 'playing small' will not free you." Cheryl has dedicated her life since then to helping people who are stuck – even if not through a trauma like hers – to break free. Cheryl is the author of USE IT: Turn Setbacks Into Success. She has appeared on CNN, TED Talks, in the Huffington Post and other top media. www.cherylhunter.com
