Mindy Henderson is a motivational speaker, writer (and Austin Woman columnist!), coach, the host of the Truth About Things That Suck podcast and guest contributor of “Morning Motivations” on CBS Austin’s We Are Austin lifestyle morning show. After a 20-year career in high-tech, Henderson shifted her focus toward normalizing disability and helping others realize their potential. Driven to build a world that welcomes and includes everyone, she advocates for universal design in air travel, architecture and fashion. Henderson’s upcoming book, also titled Truth About Things That Suck, intertwines a variety of women’s stories of navigating adversity with her own personal stories of learning to travel hard roads. She helps others see how to live more productively and positively. Her mission is to inspire people to understand that when they take responsibility, stop making excuses and own their adversity, they become stronger people and their true potential is revealed.
