An interview with Alexa Carlin with host Heidi Richards Mooney

Alexa Carlin is a nationally-renowned public speaker and Founder & CEO of Women Empower X. Inspired by her own entrepreneurial pursuits, Alexa founded WEX with the mission to help more women pursue their passions and get to the next level in their career and life.

Alexa founded her first business in high school becoming the sole licensee to design jewelry for an L.A. based fashion company. This entrepreneurial spirit led her to starting a blog in college, Hello Perfect, which served the purpose of helping young women gain confidence in themselves and attracted the likes of Mark Cuban, Shaquille O’Neal, Steve Madden, Marc Jacobs and other influential celebrities.

In college, only months before graduation, Alexa found herself in a coma with a 1% chance of living. This near-death experience led to a number of health issues but today, Alexa sees this experience as something to be grateful for as it has been her prime motivation and inspiration to share her story authentically with audiences all over the world.

Alexa was featured on the cover of Meetings & Conventions Magazine as 1 of 15 “Young Millennial Go-Getters To Watch” and named one of the "Most Powerful Women In Fort Lauderdale" by Gold Coast's Fort Lauderdale Daily.

She has also been featured in Entrepreneur, Glamour Magazine, Mashable, and TEDx among others. Alexa’s mission is to make a difference in at least one persons life every day.

In this interview Alexa talks about her near death experience and how that molded her future, her inspiration for starting the Women Empower X, who WEX is for, what her goals are for WEX and her personal goals, what to expect at WEX, about the WEX program and more.
