From a Mess to Amazing – Trina L. Martin

Feel like a mess? Would you rather feel amazing? Listen to what Trina has to say and you’ll be on your way!

Trina L. Martin is the author of From A Mess to Amazing. She’s a speaker, technology consultant, and podcaster who uses her technical expertise to work with businesses to elevate Operations by leveraging technology to communicate. She also inspires emerging leaders to pursue their wildest dreams with heart and grit. An accomplished and dedicated member of the U.S. military for 30 years, she has broken barriers and made strides in her career that many said weren’t possible. 

A native of Chicago, IL, Trina is the youngest of four children. She suffered verbal abuse from her mother, which caused her to have low self-esteem and not know her worth. Although her mother tried to break her, Trina became determined, Type-A, and driven to succeed. 

The first in her family to attend college, and due to the lack of support at home, she knew she would have to achieve her own goal. With unwavering determination, she enlisted in the U.S. Army and served in the reserves to put herself through school at Alabama A&M University. Both of these choices fueled Trina’s desire to succeed and revealed the depths of her resiliency.

Naturally skilled at finding the harmony between technology, science, and data, she has led a stellar career in the Information Technology field. As an Intelligence Officer in the U.S. Navy and now as the owner of her technology agency, Trina has pierced the glass ceiling and excelled in positions typically held by men.

Throughout Trina’s career, the common denominator has been her ability to set goals and not only achieve but surpass them. Self-motivation, discipline, and hard work are the driving forces that helped her design a life and career that defied the odds stacked against her. She’s truly gone from a mess to amazing!

Press This Point – Sara Calabro

Press This Point - Sara Calabro

Tune in to the Press This Point podcast and maintain your foxiness!

Sara Calabro is an acupuncturist; the founder of AcuTake, the first consumer acupuncture publication, and the host of Press This Point, a podcast about acupressure. 

Sara discovered acupuncture by way of journalism. For 10 years she worked as a healthcare business journalist, covering the pharmaceutical and medical-device industries. The experience provided an up-close look at mainstream medicine’s shortcomings and inspired her to explore other perspectives on health.

Upon graduating from Tri-State College of Acupuncture in New York City, Sara practiced acupuncture privately and in community clinics throughout New York and Oregon. These clinical experiences highlighted a need for accessible resources about acupuncture. Sara created AcuTake to discuss acupuncture in a relatable way so that people can use it to improve their daily lives. Now, almost a decade after launching AcuTake, Sara is producing Press This Point in response to her patients’ and readers’ desire for acupuncture-inspired self-care tools.

In addition to her work on Press This Point and AcuTake, Sara has written about acupuncture for The Huffington Post, Acupuncture Today, GreenMedInfo, and others. She is the author of Acupuncture Matters and Heal Your Kids With Acupressure.

In each short podcast episode, Sara explores a single point — the conditions it can help with, how to find it, and instructions for performing acupressure.

She also discusses how the ancient theory behind each point can be applied to modern life. You’ll walk away from every episode with a new drug-free tool for healing your body, mind, and spirit.
