We ALL deserve to thrive. When I was eight years old, I made a vow in my bedroom mirror … “It ends with me.” I am living that vow as a Change Maker by sharing inspiration, insights and innovative ThinkSayDo tools so others can be a Change Maker in their life and the lives around them.
My life experiences have forced my back up against the wall many times. Childhood abuse by both of my parents, domestic violence, post-traumatic stress (PTS), being a solo parent of kids age 5 & 2 to adulthood (who became Marines - RAH!), overcoming dyslexia, struggles as a 2x entrepreneur during the 2008 housing crash and a brand-new start up just as Covid closed all doors … and much more.
I took what I learned in the trenches of life … resilience, fortitude, self-empowerment and mindset strengths … and combined it with studies of Cognitive (think), Communication (say) and Behavior (do) at Indiana University. I used this combination of street smart and book smart to create the Purple Threads curriculum which weaves into all of my Storytelling, Training and Coaching offerings.
The Purple Threads curriculum helps people identify how they THINK - self-awareness of what is holding them back, SAY - self-ownership of how they talk themselves up or down the Adverse Spiral, and DO - self-commitment of healthy lifeskills.
Want to take obstacles and make them golden opportunities? Transform struggles into unbelievable success? Build resilience, fortitude, grit and determination? Embrace challenges to strengthen confidence and be the master of your future?
If yes, then contact me! I would love to hear your needs and goals. I’m confident that working together as a team, we can help you and your organization thrive.
These clients all started with a “get-to-know-you” call. I look forward to hearing from you!

In today's grind-it-out, never ask for help, always on, stuff it down, culture, we need more discussions like this one. We candidly discuss different ways to frame "asking for help" to make it a bit easier to do, and even fun when approached in the right way. We also have a lively back and forth chat about how to better deal with the life trauma we all carry. You're going to find real value in what Abigail has to say about healthy habits and self-limiting beliefs.
This week we have heartfelt, honest and emotional talk with Abigail G Manning. She is a brilliantly beautiful woman who has turned coal into diamonds. Not only in her personal life as she overcomes obstacles few could only imagine, now professionally she is helping others through obstacles that seem to have no end insight.
In this episode, I get to speak to my new colleague (and amazing new friend) Abigail G. Manning. Abigail loves to share her story and her insight into how she wants people to make sure that they have the tools that they need to succeed.
How To Build a Resilient Mindset | On Episode 38 of C60 Health Connections, Abigail Manning gives you tools to take back control over your mental health, and discusses methods for overcoming the obstacles of negative self-talk, past trauma, and even PTSD in order to build a resilient, healthy mindset.
Abigail’s unique content aims to prevent toxic culture such as various unhealthy behaviors, sexual harassment, and what is known as the Adverse Spiral (stress, limiting thoughts, depression, addiction, abuse, PTS, and suicide) and encourage life skills to empower people and help cultures prosper.
"Purple is the Color of Courage.” Abigail is a cultivator of goodness, positivity and growth. An incredibly talented speaker, Abigail has had the honor of addressing some of our finest young women and men (cadets) of the United States Air Force Academy on several occasions.
Parents or a Parent often have many questions when their child become interested in earning the title "Marine." But in the case of Keynote Speaker, Entrepreneur, and Marine Mom Abigail G. Manning, her daughter and son not only became interested in becoming Marines, but successfully earned the "Marine" title. So how did Abigail handle both of her children's decision to join the Marines? Was it a complete surprise? Did she react, respond, or both?
In this interview "Gator" discusses how to overcome "Purple Threads" - limiting personal thoughts, connected to past traumas that become physically trapped in our bodies and physiologically tied to what we think, say, and do, how to eliminate the "finger-pointing" language of blame, shame, and judgment in our lives, and so much more! Her story of conquering childhood and domestic abuse to become an empowered leader is an inspiration!
Abigail has spent a long time researching and speaking to her story. She was able to articulate things in a way that really helped translate, for a lack of a better word, the dialogue within myself. She was able to express and articulate how she is thriving and that articulation helped me understand and connect pieces of thoughts and emotions within myself and understand myself better.
Abigail shares her personal story of freeing herself from abuse, and how we may recognize someone that may be suffering from abuse. She also discusses the important distinction between reacting and responding, why it’s crucial to have boundaries, and the components of trust that help people thrive.
In this heartwarming interview, Abigail shares her personal journey as a military mother and her dedication to supporting the military community.
Abigail Manning is the unconventional warrior’s coach and guide. Abigail’s unique perspective on life and her unique curriculum has helped countless individuals develop a better approach to dealing with their own self-limiting beliefs in order to be more effective and healthy leaders. We can’t solve our Regiments problems or inspire change using the same mindsets that created them, we need a new voice and fresh perspective. Abigail Manning is that voice.
