These special honorees are distinguished based on their professional accomplishments, academic achievements, leadership abilities, longevity in the field, other affiliations and contributions to their communities.  All honorees are invited to attend the IAOTP’s annual award gala at the end of this year for a night to honor their achievements. 

With over a decade of professional experience as a Business Entrepreneur, Best Selling Author and International Speaker, Lucetta has certainly proven herself as an accomplished professional and expert in the field.  As a dynamic, results-driven leader, Lucetta has demonstrated success not only as an International Speaker, Best Selling Author, Humanitarian but in every role she has held.  Her impressive repertoire of prior roles have included Owner and Operator of Lucetta’s Fine Baked Goods where she received the Small Business Person of the Year Award, Owner of Red Porch Productions, LLC, and was Past President, Co-Lead Instructor, Mentor, and Leadership Trainer for Raleigh Coaching Academy.  Presently Lucetta is Founder of Your Life in Bold, LLC and Co-Founder of It’s Faked Up.

Your Life in Bold, LLC, Lucetta’s goal is to banish self-doubt throughout humanity one courageous act at a time.  She helps empower people and give them hope in their lives to overcome and push past their fears, which she accomplishes with her moving speaking engagements, life and leadership coaching and her books. 

Lucetta’s memoir “It’s Already Tomorrow Here: Never Underestimate the Power of Running Away,” takes you on a personal journey of what tragedies and obstacles Lucetta has faced, and in the face of it all has turned her tragedies into joy and happiness. A mother of 6 children, Lucetta found herself having to put everything she owned in storage, sell her car, shut down her phone and travel to developing countries by herself for a year.  At 51 years old she jumped off the world’s highest bungee bridge, was French-kissed by a giraffe, fell in love with Africa, was abducted, ate a tarantula in Cambodia, and ultimately found herself. “This book will have you laughing one moment and crying the next as you travel the world with her.” Lucetta’s second book is an Amazon #1 Best Seller called “Your Amazing Itty Bitty Fear Busting Book:15 Ways to Push Past Fear.

It’s Faked Up is a three to sixth month life transformation program with a cruise in the middle.  Lucetta describes what’s Faked Up is when people are not living the life they really want to live.  They are suffering silently and not going after their dreams. Her and her colleague Thom Qafzezi help people get very clear about how they want to move forward and create a life they actually love.

The President of IAOTP, Stephanie Cirami, stated “Choosing Lucetta for this award was an easy decision for our panel to make.  She is brilliant at what she does and contributed so much of her personal experience, wisdom and passion to help empower and inspire people all over the globe to not be afraid and to live life to their fullest potential.  She is humble, gracious and we felt she would make an amazing asset to our organization.  We are looking forward to meeting her in person at the gala and know we will be seeing more amazing things from this incredible woman.”
