Awakening the Champion: How to Think, Speak, and Live Like a Conqueror Throughout the last few years, people of all ages and cultures have been faced with overcoming traumatic personal situations. Coaches, speakers, authors, ministers, entrepreneurs, and online/network marketers have been discouraged at how they struggled with growing their businesses. Along with trying to keep their businesses afloat, they struggled with balancing taking care of themselves and maintaining healthy families. What I have discovered is that living in today’s world, maintaining healthy families, and growing successful businesses requires a different way of thinking, speaking, and living. No longer can entrepreneurs live with a 90s mentality, engage in yesterday’s behaviors, and use old business strategies. It is going to require more than striving to obtain high profits in business and recruiting more people in your down line. Today’s entrepreneurs and business leaders must Awaken the Champion within themselves by thinking, speaking, and living like conquerors. In “Awakening the Champion,” Professional Speaker, and Trainer Lakeisha McKnight elaborates more on today’s champion and how you can awaken the champion within you so that you can increase your impact, influence, and income simultaneously despite current and future setbacks. As you read the book, one theme will ring loudly in your ears and this is:
“CHAMPIONS don’t just WIN, they OVERCOME.” Independently published by Lakeisha McKnight ISBN: 978-1-4675-1460-6

~ Dr. E. Paul Mbuagbor “She is absolutely amazing. Whether working with large or small groups, Lakeisha has the ability to create an immediate environment of trust, and with that, she connects at a very deep level with her audience...To me, the reason she relates so well to audiences anywhere in the world is because she is what she teaches. She leads from the inside out and her message is powerful. Lakeisha is the real deal.” Jerry DaCBlenman Managing Director Calidad Investment & Financial Services Inc.

In the journey of life we meet people who may be classified ordinary, others who are extraordinary and those who are distinctively extraordinary. The privilege was mine to first learn of Lakeisha when the announcement for a Global Leadership Conference in Cameroon, Africa was made in early 2010. She was listed as one of several global speakers for the conference. After reviewing her profile my first reaction was “what an extraordinary lady.” On meeting her in November 2010 and sharing the podium as joint keynote and workshop speakers my second reaction was “what a distinctively blessed and extraordinary lady.” Clearly, Lakeisha has the capacity to convict and inspire at the same time. Her convictions and devotion to the tenets of balance living and an acknowledgment of God as the principle foundation for development is unmistakable. Her multidisciplinary skills to communicate and address varying issues on leadership, business and finance are obvious. Yet while distinctively blessed, impactful and extraordinary, I will continue to be in awe for a while at how boldness was delivered in humility, compassion with conviction and a message of hope from a young lady by the name of Lakeisha McKnight influenced mine and several other lives.

Listening to Lakeisha McKnight was an amazing experience. She mellifluously provides great insight and elocution, captivating her audience. Lakeisha is a rare gift to her generation with wisdom that can‟t be denied in addressing issues of leadership at all dimensions. I admire her courage and her ingenuity as she tackles issue of gender, leadership, and economic empowerment. Her focus on life‟s purpose and significance was a tremendous motivator to many. The audience was marveled as she communicated her thoughts on the contemporary leadership issues in the Global leadership Conference in Yaoundé Cameroon. It was great having her in Africa. ~ Sabina Etta, Author, Educationist, Counselor Personnel of Nation Builders International
“Lakeisha speaks fluently on feminine issues, leadership development, and gift recognition. She passionately believes that men and women have life purposes, with gifts lying dormant within which we must be birthed. She challenges her listeners to search deep to awaken their gifts, nurture them, and release them to impact the lives of others. Lakeisha encourages men and women to understand that „gifts are not given until they are freely received.‟ She leaves her listeners believing that „they can, they will, and they are somebody.‟”
~ Gisele Rufer CEO & President of Delance Swiss Watches

Lakeisha wrote an amazing book that awakens the Champion in you. By providing twelve golden nuggets, „Awakening the Champion‟ helps you think, speak, and live like a Conqueror. The book is comprehensive as it informs, guides, and calls you to action. It is filled with lots of reflection points, thought provoking questions, inspirational stories, and tips. „Awakening the Champion‟ is powerful because a Champion writes it. Lakeisha overcame childhood sexual abuse and neglect but that didn‟t stop her from championing. Now, she writes from her own experiences, and by citing the story of other champions who conquered extraordinary challenges to help you become a champion. This is a must read book! I loved reading this book. It has motivated me as a business owner to be a better leader. I was especially motivated during part III as it has pushed me to want to give my business my all. I want to be a more dedicated business owner serving my clients and meeting their needs. I have never read anything like this. Wonderful book. ~ Mclin
GOALS is a powerful book that can help anyone striving for greatness. GOALS can be used as a guide for one‟s journey to self-discovery. The author of GOALS, Lakeisha McKnight, has masterfully presented principles and guidelines on achieving success by knowing one‟s destiny, dreams, achieving desires, obstacles to achievement and, yes, goals. After reading GOALS, I have loaned my book to my clients that I counsel on basic life skills. I will be presenting GOALS to some of my students who need direction in their lives. GOALS should be required reading for anyone who needs direction, motivation, or simply striving for greatness!
