Justine Martin is a resilience consultant, art therapist, speaker, coach, artist, author, and publisher, plus an advocate for medical care. She uses her own experiences of living with a disability to encourage others to take steps towards a positive future of their own by finding hope, overcoming adversity, and building resilience. She speaks from the heart, connecting with many audiences through her varied background in corporate, sales, art, volunteer work, and experiencing illness. She pursues any opportunity to inspire and empower members of the public, business owners, corporate teams, schools, and charitable and educational organisations. She has made many media appearances in television, radio, and print media over the years, and even ran for parliament in 2010-2013.

Her successful corporate life was turned upside down in 2011 when she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Since then, she has battled three cancers,  overcome a long list of serious medical conditions, dealt with domestic violence, and other traumas. Rather than allowing her hardship to overcome her, she has used it as a platform to inspire and make a difference in the lives of others.

When I asked Justine was is the key to her resilience and her amazing capacity to, not just overcome, but to create so much success and impact in the world, she said, be willing and open to ask for help, and then take action on the advice given. Such a simple thing, that we can all do by-the-way. This is a raw, compelling and inspiring conversation with Justine, and one that I hope will motivate you to ask for help, act on it and make the most of every second you are blessed to have on this planet. Enjoy it and please share it with as many people as you can, and believe would gain value and insight.
