Today we’d like to introduce you to Olympia LePoint.
Olympia, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
Many people may know me as the “Modern Day Hidden Figure” as read in People Magazine or by seeing my TED Talk and Impact Theory interviews where I share how I programmed my brain to overcame fear to become a rocket scientist, author and professional speaker.
At the age of 6, I took a field trip to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. It was there, where I decided to become a rocket scientist. However, I did not know the level of self-brain-rewiring I would have to perform in order to reach such great feats.
As the talk show host of “Answers Unleashed,” I enjoy launching lives into success. Because I had to change the course of my life for myself. My fans know that I overcame a series of painful youthful experiences – from poverty, gang violence, childhood sexual #Metoo abuse, to failing math scores – to later help launch 28 NASA Space Shuttle missions into space. With my new book Answers Unleashed: The Science of Unleashing Your Brain’s Power, I take pride in sharing how I rewired my own brain explained with fun science. And I am proud of the powerful messages of hope infused in every page. The book shows how to rewire your brain with self-directed thoughts to overcome any past experience and move forward. Through entertaining sagas, that expose the science of success, I infuse science and faith-based thoughts that launch lives into success.
Has it been a smooth road?
The biggest struggle I face is knowing that I am worth the investment. I had to bank on myself. And it is a continual process. And this concept sounds easy, but it takes all of your interior strength to do it. If I wanted to become a rocket scientist, I had to go for it, despite only seeing men doing it. If I wanted to become an author, I would have to write my own book before the Huffington Post would ask for my writing. If I wanted to become a public speaker, I had to create my own videos on Youtube before any TEDx producers would ask for talks. If I wanted to become a science entertainer, I had to start my own show first before becoming a globally recognized scientist. You must bank on yourself first.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with Producer & Host of Answers Unleashed – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
I am the CEO of OL Consulting Corporation. The company, OL Consulting Corporation, is a book publishing and educational entertainment company focused on promoting self-directed thoughts for mental growth through education. Science, Technology Engineering, Mathematics and Faith are the foundations of all products. Each professional product promotes the power of the human brain and seeks to increase the number of scientists, entrepreneurs, mathematicians, technology innovators and strategists across the globe.
I began the corporation in 2010. And we create shows like Answers Unleashed talk show, and a number of books seen on NBC, PBS, Impact Theory, CBS, KTLA and other news channels. The company also produces Answers Unleashed LIVE, an educational live show held at theaters across the country at universities with its debut at California State University Northridge to a sold-out theater. My desire is to publish other great authors and promote them under the Answers Unleashed platform.
Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
Through my professional speaking, I have the opportunity to visit great towns. The people are nice everywhere. But then again, I am a kind person. So, I also attract kind people. However, no place is like Los Angeles when it comes to healthy food. The other day, I was in a city for an Answers Unleashed LIVE show and I could not find healthy food at any restaurant! It is then that I realized how fortunate I am to live in Los Angeles where you can buy healthy food in many areas. And, gluten-free has its own restaurant menu.
I am a single woman. And, Los Angeles has great men here. But, I am not as social as I once was due to my schedule. I wish there was a place in Los Angeles where I could go and be approached by all suitable, eligible executive gentlemen in one place!
