CBS “Survivor” Talk Passion & Never Giving Up

Born and raised in Eureka, South Dakota, Holly Hoffman was the last remaining member of the Espada Tribe and the last woman standing on Season 21 of CBS’ hit reality show “Survivor Nicaragua”. Through that experience, and others throughout her life, Holly was inspired to share her message of positivity, determination, and confidence with business leaders, teachers, and students across the nation.

A professional speaker and the author of Your Winner Within and Write Yourself a Note, Holly acknowledges that life is made up of challenges, and we are oftentimes faced with situations that seem insurmountable. But within each of us is an ability to focus our thoughts, emotions, and energy to succeed—if only we have the knowledge, tools, and discipline to do so.

Holly is a member of the National Speaker’s Association and travels the country speaking to schools and universities, healthcare organizations, women’s organizations, community leaders, and business professionals.

A lifelong resident of America’s heartland, Holly graduated from her hometown high school in Eureka, South Dakota, and then attended Northern State University. Holly is the proud mother of three wonderful children and several grandchildren.

In this podcast, Holly and Cindra talk about:

· The surprising person to helped her not give up on Survivor

· The life-changing advice she received from Jeff Probst, the host of “Survivor”

· How anyone can make a new ending

· Why your power is within
