“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.”
Holly Hoffman was the last remaining member of the Espada Tribe and the last woman standing on Season 21 of CBS’ hit reality show “Survivor: Nicaragua”. Through that experience, and others throughout her life, Holly was inspired to share her message of survival.
A professional motivational speaker and the author of Your Winner Within and Write Yourself a Note, Holly acknowledges that life is made up of challenges, and we are oftentimes faced with situations that seem insurmountable. But within each of us is an ability to focus our thoughts, emotions, and energy to succeed—if only we have the knowledge, tools, and discipline to do so.
A native of South Dakota, Holly’s writing and speaking not only offer encouragement and optimism but a roadmap for self-discovery and spiritual enlightenment. Readers and audience members alike walk away inspired to light the fire of successful living within themselves.
Today, Holly is a member of the National Speaker’s Association, a recipient of the Certified Speaking Professional designation, and travels across the country and internationally speaking to a wide variety of corporations, associations, universities, schools and women’s organizations. Holly inspires her audiences to take opportunities and focus on faith, attitude, determination, confidence, desire and perseverance.
Holly Hoffman is an author of two books Write Yourself a Note, Your Winner Within, and is currently working on her third book.
Her books are available online and also at her speaking engagements.

Write Yourself a Note
At the end of the day, unless I made a conscious effort to bring myself back to center and refocus, I found that often days I was just getting through the day to start the next one. That is not the way I want to live my life.
This desire to live focused every day was my inspiration for Write Yourself a Note — both the speech and this book. I wanted to give people a simple tool they can rely on every day to refocus and reprioritize. In this book I offer encouragement, optimism, and a roadmap for self-discovery. I hope you find my methods — the ones I use every day in my own life — intuitive, honest, and adaptable to nearly any individual or situation. My goal for this book is to inspire you to consistently work towards a successful and fulfilling life for yourself.
Your Winner Within
Life is made up of challenges. And, often times we are faced with situations we perceive to be insurmountable. In those times of uncertainty, many of us lack the internal compass to guide ourselves back into the light. Our thoughts turn to the negative and we inadvertently use our fears and emotions to our own detriment. Conversely, it is the ability to focus our thoughts, emotions, and discipline to do so.
Holly Hoffman’s book, Your Winner Within, not only offers encouragement and optimism, but a roadmap for self discovery and spiritual enlightenment. Her methods are intuitive, honest, and adaptable to nearly any situation. Best of all, the methods and ideas presented in this book are the very ones Holly uses herself, day-in and day-out to achieve success. You will receive the benefit of a lifetime of experience and the progressive evolution of her techniques to near perfection through the personal challenges faced in her own life.
