Encouraging you to overcome what
is holding you back!
What is #BTBY?  It is all about you and helping you to become the best version of yourself.  Becoming the Best “YOU” you can be: Overcoming challenges is a movement about helping others to overcome their challenges and grab the life they want.  


We want you to rule your kingdom.  Stop letting fear, doubt, low self-esteem, your past, what others think and more, stop you from becoming the best you can be. So put your crown on and rule your kingdom. 


We host events with world thought leaders that teach and guide you on how to change your life.  


We hold virtual events, live events and now have a TV Talk show about becoming the best you.  It is about ordinary people doing extraordinary things.  They are stories of hope and encouragement to help you see that you too can have the life you want, if you are willing to make the changes to make it happen. 


What is holding you back?  The only one that is stopping you is the person looking back at you in the mirror.

The Back Story of

Becoming the Better "YOU"

Brenda Ring Wood

If you’ve dealt with struggles and aren’t sure how to put them behind you, Brenda Ring Wood is the top person to help you find answers to those questions. When you attend her #BTBY events, you’ll receive all the tools you need to move past any slump.

Brenda focuses her speaking on overcoming challenges and being the best person, you can be. Her life hasn’t been perfect. She’s gone through tremendous challenges. Like everyone else, she’s been through a lot. But what makes her different is that she found a way forward through the challenges on her path. She now enables people and shows them the ways they can carve their own paths.

Brenda is also unique due to the effortless way she shares her message. She can help you change your thoughts and your actions to become the person you have always wanted to be. When you attend her events, you can learn more about Brenda, her stories for the world, and how you can change the way you look at life.

Brenda works as a motivational speaker to help people understand how to reach their potential. She’s also been an avid entrepreneur since she was in high school. She’s seen fortune and understands how precious it is – likely because her life story also includes a lot of loss and struggles.

While everyone has struggled in life, Brenda manages to be positive and persuasive despite a past that involves incarceration, a struggle with cancer, and much more. That might be too much for some people, but Brenda always fights and ends up on the other side. This is precisely why many people want to learn more about how she thinks and ways to employ this kind of mindset in their own lives.

She lived a corporate life for many years - hundreds of employees, real estate franchises, and a proven ability to convince anyone to buy anything! Brenda had a passion for sales and loved the operational aspects of business, but she wasn’t truly happy. As she says, “I loved the sales part, but I didn’t like everything else that came with it.”

Brenda went down what turned out to be the wrong path, one where she wasn’t entirely happy with her job. She did things she shouldn’t have, which led to a downfall from which many would find it hard to come back. She admits that if she had listened to her gut and heart and taken a different path, she likely wouldn’t have had to deal with some of the things life threw her way. She realized that her past does not need to define her future. And you can do the same thing. No matter where you are in life, you can learn something from it and move forward. All that matters is doing better, understanding yourself more, and taking a path that makes sense for your situation. And that’s exactly what her events are about.

There are several methods that Brenda has used throughout life whenever she has struggled with something. These methods can work just as well in your own life when things seem so bad that there are no options. But, first, you need to learn to step up and be whom you want to be. Then, you have to change your thoughts and actions. And it doesn’t hurt to encourage others to do the same thing.

When you utilize these three things in your own life, you can start taking the same steps Brenda did to be the person she wanted to be.


1. Reevaluate where you are. Be aware of your situation right now. Think about how that feels and be mindful of your emotions around your current life.

2. Determine what you want. Let your mind flow and consider all the options. Then, decide precisely what is the most important thing you could introduce to your life right now.

3. Find a way to make it happen. It might seem easier said than done, but it’s also the answer. Once you know what you want, the only thing standing in your way is yourself. Get past that and you can have the success and life you want.

These steps can be challenging, but they can also be endlessly rewarding. Brenda will help you better understand the process. They create a bridge that can be used to move past the negative phases of your life. There’s always something more beautiful on the other side and nobody knows that better than Brenda.

She noted, “I’m going to be discussing some ups and downs I’ve had in my life – some real struggles and real challenges that would bring most people to their knees. And I am going to share how I overcome them. What happened to me, why it happens, and how my mindset, focus, and priorities had to change to get myself out of where I was.”

One of the things that Brenda prides herself on is being a great speaker. And starting these events was something that had been on her mind for a while. The idea of being able to help lots of people at once was constantly on her mind. But the main concept started forming the day she went to a Dr. Ruben West event. Thanks to networking, Brenda was able to connect with him and other key people. She quickly learned that it’s not what people can do for you that matters. Sometimes it’s about the people those individuals know. She reached out to people who might be interested in the event and immediately found people with whom it resonated. And becoming the Best You was formed.

Brenda feels that “People need to hear and learn how you overcome what you went through and how to apply that so you can help them through whatever they are experiencing. It’s not just about life issues. You might be happy and have the best job in the world, but let’s be honest, everyone has struggles in their lives.

That’s what this is about - it’s to help you get unstuck and move forward. It’s about helping you become happier. So you can work at a job that makes you happy, have time for family and enjoy success.

Brenda’s main goal with the ‘Becoming the Best “You” You Can Be: Overcoming Challenges’ conferences is to bring in an audience of people who want to change the direction of their current situation. And once the weekend is over and you’ve heard these brilliant speakers, you will walk away with a new mindset and purpose to change your views on life.

While listening to Brenda and the other speakers share their stories, you will hear something that resonates with you, that allows you to open your mind to the power of change. You’ll have the chance to invest in yourself – and learn new ways to change the momentum and direction of your life. Allow yourself to embrace the possibility of a new you! It’s an event to help you grow into a bigger and better person, no matter what that means to you.

Several other prolific speakers will also be present at the event. You can learn more about them and what they bring to the table at

As Brenda, herself states, “These events are going to be life-changing. I have a connection with the speakers involved in this, and we’ve worked hard to make sure everything goes off without a hitch so that the viewers get the knowledge they need to move forward.

Many of us tend to focus on fear in our lives and we don’t do things because of that. For example, you want to change jobs or be self-employed, but you can’t do it because XYZ has happened. It might upset your parent or your spouse doesn’t want to do it or you’re afraid of other others might think.

That’s what this is all about. It’s to give you the tools that you need to change your life.”

As Brenda will tell you, change is possible for anyone. Anyone who wants to change has the ability to do so. When you change and focus on the good things in life, those are the things that are going to flourish for you. Change is possible, and this event is the perfect place to let that change start in your own life.

If you prefer to be part of a LIVE experience with Brenda and the other speakers, Anyone who wants to be inspired and make changes in their life can attend in-person or virtually.
