As the Founder and CEO of BMP Productions, Barbara’s life mission is to inspire and empower people of all ages to understand the reality of what is possible. Her motto is:
“If it is in your thoughts and heart it can be in your reality. It does not matter that it looks or seems impossible. It does not matter that you can’t see how. Learning from others speeds up the success process. Learning for all; is on-going.”
Her bootcamp type workshops are interactive, believe it or not fun! She makes learning entertaining with her humor. She is also a competent inspirational speaker on many other topics that are needed in today’s troubled world. Barbara’s purpose for launching her business was inspired by her own story of resilience where she overcame insurmountable obstacles against unbelievable odds. At age three she had suffered a tremendous loss and was traumatized to the point of being catatonic. Even though she would go on to suffer two more significant traumas by age seven her spirit and life would be saved as she learned about the concept of forgiveness at age four. It gets worse! At only five years, almost six years old, Barbara suffered from a misdiagnosis causing her to be denied access to the traditional first twelve years of the academic school system. Even though her odds were stacking up she would embrace an extraordinary mission to succeed.
With a Baptist background, at only eight years old, Barbara felt her calling was to live as an example of what is possible against insurmountable almost unbelievable odds. At a very young age, she knew that to accomplish this she would need to “Stay alive” and undo damages. It started with a vow and not permitting any addictions in her life. It also meant suicide was not permitted!
Her self-education began at home at age seventeen. At nineteen, Barbara fought her educational misdiagnoses and the ridicules indoctrination that came with it. With pure determination to prove to herself her brain did, in fact, work! She clawed her way for three years with at the time, un-diagnosed cancer that caused chronic fatigue. Sleeping up to sixteen hours a day made getting her grade twelve that much more difficult. With pure, raw persistence, to finally see and learn the academic work she was denied, Barbara did receive her academic grade twelve.
Barbara’s Thyroid cancer was detected and removed at age twenty-five. She says,
“Life is much easier when you can stay awake.”
With a thirst for knowledge and healing from her traumas, her Personal Home Study continued for over thirty-five years. A true pioneer, she has carved a path to success against all odds. Barbara has earned the title Master of Transformation! She has the right to say she has a
