Your Scars Are Your Gift

Kelly Woodhouse

At the age of 2, Kelly Woodhouse was severely burned over 75% of her body. Her life was forever changed in that moment. It led to numerous surgeries and growing up she was bullied, shunned, and avoided by people that didn’t know how to talk to her. Her teen years were the worst because she wanted the things her girlfriends had. She could have given up. Today Kelly is an International motivational speaker,  bestselling author x 5, and a divorced mother of three. She is the recipient of the Fierce Woman of the Year award, the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee medal, and a YWCA Woman of Distinction.

In this episode Kelly:

  • Explains why she sees her scars as a gift
  • Talks about he experience as a runway model
  • Why she refused to be defined by what happened to her
  • Recalls the moment she realized that she didn’t need validation from others
  • Shares a great strategy for dealing with people that bring you down
  • Talks about some of the ignorant feedback she still gets on Social Media
  • And her new documentary “Still Beautiful” which reenacts her story and brings people hope and inspiration (her goalcast video trailer has been viewed almost 5 million times)
  • And shares her favorite quote about dreams

FOR five years in his twenties Tim Alison was living a lie. From the outside looking in, he had it all. A wonderful wife, 2 kids, and a six-figure income. There was just one problem- he was miserable. So he did the logical thing and moved to a tiny fishing village in Nova Scotia, where he started an educational software company. The naysayers came out of the woodwork telling him that he was a complete idiot and that failure was certain. They stopped saying that when his sales topped $10 million. For Tim it was never about the money. It was about living the life he wanted. Tim is the author of Screw the Naysayers...They Suck Anyways (an Amazon best seller) and host of the weekly Screw the Naysayer Podcast. The show is for anyone who is questioning their direction in life (or has a friend or loved one doing so). Each week Tim interviews experts in innovation, entrepreneurship, and education. Together they take on an education system that is failing our kids and provide practical advice for breaking free from a system that has set us up to settle. His life motto? Know the Life You Want and Have the Courage to Live It.
