Mal will bring her point of view and energetic style to your group or media event through any of the following topics, or is happy to brainstorm with you for a custom-designed topic specific to your audience.

  • Five Steps for Moving from Pain to Power
    From her award-winning, bestselling book, Alpha Chick, Mal Duane shares her simple, yet powerful, five-step formula for personal transformation, created from her own journey to wellness.
  • The Life Recovery Formula™ = Self-care + Self-worth + Happiness
    Mal breaks down the transformational Life Recovery Formula™ and shows how working with the formula’s three key ingredients – Self-Care, Self-Worth and Happiness – can lead to recovering joy, inner peace and fulfillment.
  • Uncovering the Perfection Within
    We are all born perfect. As life unfolds we pick up stories, untruths and beliefs that are absorbed into our being, disconnecting us from the truth of who we are. Mal’s “F.A.I.T.H.” formula is an affirmative mental approach to establishing a new reality! As we do the inner work to release lies and old beliefs we will discover the perfection that has always been there.
  • The Power of Choice
    When we open ourselves to new patterns of thinking, it awakens our ability to make more positive choices in life. Many women find themselves in negative situations, jobs or relationships because they have lost sight that they have the powerful intuitive ability to make a different choice.
  • Positive Mental Shift: Stepping into Your Truth
    When women do the inner work to identify their negative behaviors and beliefs that have been holding them back, and learn to replace those old patterns with new positive thoughts, intentions and actions they step onto the path of unapologetically embracing their truth.

“I wanted to say how grateful I was to have attended the two outstanding programs you delivered on empowering woman and self-esteem at the New Beginnings Group. Mal, you are a fantastic speaker, and have a wonderful ability to connect with the group. We felt comfortable to share our thoughts and concerns with you. Your examples are from real life and the topics you spoke so relevant to the group. I made several positive changes in my life, since those two presentations. My self-esteem and confidence levels have improved greatly and I feel that I am in better control of my life now and that sense of empowerment feels wonderful. Mal, you are a gifted communicator. I love listening to you and recommend you very highly.” – Lorraine Aiello

About Mal’s bestselling book, Alpha Chick:

Alpha Chick: Five Steps for Moving from Pain to Power is more than just a roadmap to happiness, success, and fulfillment – it is a model for any woman who dreams of those things. The brilliance of this book is that it clearly guides you step-by-step in the process of becoming your own unique brand of Alpha Chick. It sets you on your own road to being the ideal you; the sizzling, empowered woman you are meant to be. Alpha Chick shows you how to let go of the past and recapture self-love, faith, and hope. It provides all you need to create a new vision to achieve an exceptional life filled with passion, purpose and power.

In Alpha Chick, Mal, a Certified Life Recovery Coach, takes you on a journey using poignant, personal experiences to illustrate how she cultivated – then applied – the 5 steps in the Alpha Chick Process to overcome seemingly enduring destructive self-behaviors to create positive mental, emotional, physical, financial and spiritual transformation in her life. The Alpha Chick Process grew out of her own recovery process and revealed itself during one of her daily meditations. And it did not surprise her that the foundation letter of each step spelled out a single significant word: FAITH.

Acceptance and Attitude
Identification and Intention
Healing and Helping

You, too, can let go of painful past experiences and live the life you’ve only dared to dream when you discover the powerful Alpha Chick inside of you. Alpha Chick will help you overcome pain, fear and confusion to approach life’s challenges with the power of acceptance and the value of a positive mental attitude.
