Introducing the Life Redesign Queen:


“Coaching Leaders and Entertainers to design your life with clarity and confidence and emerge into the Super-Star that you are!”

Nekisha-Michelle Bakre, MSW, is a best-selling author, life coach and president of Vivacious Living International. Her book, Breaking Invisible Chains, Gaining the Confidence to Redesign Your Life details her triumphant personal story of childhood abuse, teen pregnancy, depression, and anxiety.

Despite having a baby at 14 years old, being traumatized by a physically and verbally abusive mother, and feeling neglected by an absent father, Nekisha-Michelle earned a masters degree in Social Work. However, her low confidence caused her to accept low paying jobs and was laid-off on several occasions leaving her and her child homeless. With her last lay-off in 2003, she gained the courage to reinvent and redesign her life with her last $98.00 and as a result she became a profitable entrepreneur and built a life coaching enterprise.

Bubbly, energetic and passionate are words that describe Nekisha-Michelle’s keen intuitive ability to help leaders and entertainers uncover their personal truth, take control and reinvent their life on their terms. This acumen has earned her the title of the ?Life Redesign Queen.? Her personal story has been featured in Black Enterprise Magazine, Empowering Women Magazine and Victorious Magazine for which she was the May/June 2009 cover feature.

As a speaker, Nekisha-Michelle has captivated diverse audience populated with celebrities Lisa Raye, Ella Joyce and Denise Dowse, to women’s prisons, churches, non-profits, universities, and corporations across the country.
