Being afflicted with a life altering auto-immune deficiency disease like alopecia did not stop Jodi Pliszka from realizing her potential. As a matter of fact, it strengthened her resolve.

Bald, bold and beautiful, the award winning author shares her inspiring story of survival at the CSA Women’s Leadership Breakfast 2014.

With this years message being “Turning Challenges Into Opportunities”, Jodi shares how to overcome adverse circumstances to be successful.

"No really means a new opportunity,” shared Jodi, “It’s not who you are – it’s who you believe you are. I share my message of positive, proactive thinking and encourage others to learn how to self-counsel and take control and responsibility – to achieve success and use their personal power to find hope and happiness.”

"No really means a new opportunity,”

Despite her positive demeanor, the speaker admits life wasn't always easy.

“One day after crying my eyes out, I decided to give it all up and just live my life with what I’d been given,” she revealed. “It was like God had said ‘you are perfect just the way you are.’ I was humbled, and that helped me to open up and share."

The CSA Women’s Leadership Breakfast 2014 will be hosted by the Congregation of Sisters of St. Agnes on Thursday, March 6, from 7:00-8:30 a.m. at Whispering Springs in Fond du Lac.
