Listen as Linda Hayles shares a motivational talk How being an underdog became my advantage with AGC Minneapolis April 2021. 


I've been homeless after divorce... I'm a sales and recruiting expert. I've done a TEDx Talk while I was on food stamps. My gosh... I raised a problematic teenager without killing him and now he's an honorable man serving as a Corporal in the US Army. My mom has 2 children that grew up, went to prison and died there. I didn't go to prison but I got pregnant at 16. I am a cycle breaker. My children did not get pregnant in high school or go to jail. As a divorced, Hispanic woman, mother of bi-racial kids... I was supposed to be a statistic. But my life and my children's lives are anything but that.
