Today’s show is another in a series of bonus episodes each featuring one of the phenomenal talks given by my participants in The Big Talk Academy as a part of our Virtual Showcase. This showcase is the culmination of their hard work as they cross the finish line to becoming certified speakers. 

These episodes give you a peek behind the scenes to witness the amazing Big Talks presented and also give you exclusive access to my live feedback and the direction I give to each speaker immediately following their performances.

This week’s episode features Rachelle Lefevre and her talk, Transforming Pain into Purpose.

Rachelle has been a successful film and television actor for over twenty years. Born in

Montreal and fluent in French, she currently resides in Los Angeles with her husband, their two children, and two rescue dogs. As an adoptive mother, Rachelle is a proud supporter of Adopttogether.org.

In her extraordinary and engaging Big Talk, Rachelle shares her story of trauma in a way that gives us permission to share ours. And together, we all have an opportunity to heal.

In this talk, she explores:

  • Her traumatic childhood and her experience trying to heal from it over the last 20+ years
  • The deep need to find a purpose, not just an explanation, for everything she went through
  • An experience of opening up in a new way and how it helped her finally find the meaning she was looking for
  • How she moved from surviving her pain to transforming it, and what this can mean for you too
