McKenna Reitz, an Alopecia warrior, turned her “loss” into her greatest opportunity. In this episode, we talk about her transition from being a high school teacher, to following her purpose and speaking on stage.

I met McKenna in line at a conference and we became fast friends, saving each other seats, having lunch, and dancing to her friend Elec Simon, one of the original members of STOMP, jam out with a 5-person drumming band. 

In this episode, McKenna shares:

  • How to create a speaking career
  • How she got booked on The Jennifer Hudson Show
  • How she shows up consistently online
  • How to think about personal branding in your business

McKenna Reitz is a sought-after TEDx speaker, an award-winning high school AP Psychology teacher, and an alopecia warrior who empowers others to reframe life’s challenges into gifts and opportunities so they can lead with confidence and purpose. 

After losing all her hair due to Alopecia, McKenna uses her journey of having this autoimmune disease to help others overcome the loss by resetting the mindset of their “loss” into growth and opportunities. 

McKenna has been featured in Forbes, Woman’s Day, USA Today, Yahoo! News, U.S. News & World Report, Good Housekeeping, Business Insider, VeryWell, MindBodyGreen and featured on Good Morning America, The Jennifer Hudson Show, Good Day DC, Good Morning Washington, theList, and Cheddar News.
