Hello there, I am
Valéssa L. Taylor!

The Core Life Coach, Author, TEDx Speaker, and more.

A champion for rising out of darkness into the light.

When I retired from the U.S. military as a disabled Air Force veteran, I didn’t let it define who I am today.

So I dusted myself down and chose my passion for purpose as an award-winning global speaker, voice actor, life coach, accomplished author, and much more.

I believe sharing our stories of faith is a call to action witnessing love, hope, peace, and joy.

Speaking & Keynotes

How to rise & shine as a Rockstar Keynote speaker.

If I had to guess, I bet you are saying right now, “I can never be a Rockstar Keynote speaker?

What if I told you, speaking is about having a conversation with your audience and telling your authentic story that resonates with their core.

Listen, I get you!

I was that person who had butterflies in my stomach, dry mouth, sweating profusely, and of course the fear of judgment on stage.

Can you relate?

What if I also told you that nervousness or anxiety in certain situations is normal, and public speaking is no exception to the rule.

First of all, “Welcome Rockstar!”

This is a place where you gain clarity and exude confidence.

The best advice I will give you right now are three gems.

  • Know your topic…
  • Get organized…
  • Practice, and then practice, practice, and practice some more.

Connect today, I am here to can support your journey as a Rockstar Keynote speaker.


I will also throw in a BONUS for you, my friend.
