In 1989, Terry Hawkins began her journey of turning $167 and unemployment into a multimillion dollar business. At this year’s Get RADICAL Women’s Conference, she received the RADICAL Entrepreneur Award.
After Terry lost her job 23 years ago, her self-esteem was at an all-time low, but she refused to play the victim. She picked herself up and found a new job. Then not long after, she started her own training company, People In Progress, despite having only $167 to her name.
Today, People In Progress is a multi-million dollar business, servicing the who’s-who of businesses in both Australia and overseas. Having personally delivered training sessions to hundreds of thousands of people around the globe, Terry is a pioneer in her field, developing leading edge programs and presentations that help companies find their ‘gap’ and achieving their goals.
Her fascination with human behavior has also led her to study incessantly about peak performance and the blockages that stop people from succeeding (becoming a Master Practitioner in NLP, Hypnotherapy and Time Line Therapy in the process).
Before her relocation to the USA in 2011, Terry was also the most booked female speaker in Australia for many years. She is the author of the best selling, “There are only two times in life, NOW & TOO LATE! and has also authored 5 children’s books (STICKMAN RULES), teaching children about the more challenging areas in life such as obesity, divorce, difference, disabilities and cancer. In 2010 she was awarded the Educator Award for Excellence from the NSA (Australia).
