At an early age, Judy Carter discovered that the messes in her life were opportunities for success and laughs.
At eight years old, she over came a speech impediment by performing magic tricks. By nine yeas years old, she had a successful magic show birthday party business where she was her own marketing department, coming home from finger painting class to make sales calls.
Judy went pro becoming the first woman to perform at the prestigious Magic Castle in Hollywood with her death defying escape from her grandmother’s girdle. On her way to a performance, the airlines lost her luggage with her tricks, so she turned that mess to a success by becoming a standup comic. She went on to appear on over 100 TV shows, as well as opening for Prince and playing Vegas.
When she got sick of performing for drunks, she became an author and a motivational speaker.
Currently, Judy is an international keynote speaker and speaking coach on the power of personal stories and humor to inspire others. Judy’s message of using humor as a transformational tool led to her being featured in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, The Oprah Winfrey Show, CNN, as well as being a frequent contributor to NPR’s “All Things Considered” and a weekly blogger for Entrepreneur Magazine.
