Many people believe kindness is a weakness, but Lu Parker believes it is your strength! Whether at home, on the job, or when we are alone and quiet, the way we relate to others and to ourselves affects our well-being.


After experiencing a traumatic situation that involved her being punished for trying to help a stranger, Lu tells the heart-wrenching story of how she almost gave up on being kind to others but instead turn a bad situation into a positive by forming a lifestyle media company around kindness.


The lessons she learned from the unfortunate experience have taught her three life-altering lessons that she shares with audiences so they too can understand the power of self-care and kindness while facing adversity.

Learning Outcomes
  • How to let go of the need to be perfect

  • Building courage to let go of the urge to control everything and everyone

  • Learning to listen to others and yourself

Lu is incredibly interactive with her audience, asking questions along the way and ends each session with a group affirmation.


Do you feel overwhelmed in your life? Are you trying to do too much or give too much to others? Are you stuck in a career or a relationship you hate?


What if we just stopped for a minute and re-evaluated our priorities? Are you focusing on YOUR goals and dreams? Are you trying to fix things that are out of your control? Sometimes we focus so much on other people that we forget to take care of ourselves.


The truth about giving too much in a relationship is that we are often actually manipulating the other person. We are over-giving instead of having the courage to ask for our needs to be met.


In this engaging and empowering keynote, Lu Parker shares personal experiences from her life growing up in the South to being crowned Miss USA. She gets serious and shares her struggles of being the daughter of an alcoholic father and then years later finding herself in an addicted relationship. She'll take what she learned from her painful experiences and give you the tools to incorporate strength and confidence into your life in order to overcome your obstacles.

To achieve your dreams and life goals, you must get focused! It's sort of like selling Girl Scout cookies. If you sell a certain amount of cookies, you are awarded a prize. Lu Parker learned at an early age that setting small goals to reach big ones was key to finding the success she craved. She went on to become a high school teacher, was crowned Miss USA and is now an Emmy Award-Winning TV News anchor in Los Angeles and founder of the lifestyle media company Be Kind & Co.


How does she continue to make strides? Lu helps audiences walk through a plan that makes it clear that success has to do with consistent baby steps, hard work when others are playing, and being kind to others.
