Zero sight, unlimited vision. Featured in the Wall Street Journal, contributing author to Chicken Soup for the Soul: the Power of Positive, voted a Super Lawyers’ Rising Star and recognized as a Zeta Phi Beta Woman of Courage, inspirational is just one way to describe Angela and her amazingly impactful story of achieving success.
Declared legally blind at age ten, severely depressed, withdrawn, and suicidal at age 14, and going totally blind by age 20, Angela Winfield graduated from Barnard College of Columbia University and Cornell Law School, passed the bar exam and, today, is a practicing attorney at one of the top 250 law firms in the country, a sought-after motivational speaker, a certified life and success coach from the renowned IPEC coaching school, published author, a community leader, real estate investor, wife, and successful entrepreneur — all before reaching age thirty. And all of this from a blind, black woman!
Angela credits her success to the strength and power of the human spirit — something we all possess, but don’t always know how to tap into. She is deeply committed to helping people tap into that power so they can unleash their true potential. And, since forming her own motivational speaking and life coaching company, Blind Faith Enterprises LLC, in 2009, Angela has and continues to share her message and method with tens of thousands through live key note addresses, workshops, radio interviews, telesummits, coaching programs, written publications and being featured in various human-interest news pieces.
Through her signature keynote speaking and coaching program, both entitled OPEN — an acronym for the four master keys of her method for success — Angela gives her audiences and clients the tools to create personal and professional lives they absolutely love living. She motivates, educates and inspires her audiences and clients to reach their maximum potential, optimize their performance, and create their own happiness and success as she has done in her own life. Her past clients include Prudential, Cornell University, the NAACP and Mobility International USA. Angela lives in the Finger Lakes region of New York with her husband and their two Seeing Eye dogs. She values giving back to the community and is the vice president of her local United Way and serves on the boards of directors for Aurora of central New York, The Auburn YMCA and the Cayuga Community College Foundation.
