We had the good fortune of connecting with Trinity Hollins and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Trinity, what do you want people to remember about you?
I want my legacy to be that I had a servant’s heart. I love helping people and giving back to my community. I teach this to my sons all the time when we are volunteering or just praying for someone. I want people to remember that I genuinely loved them, fought for them, prayed for them, listened to them, was there for them, mind, body and soul, because I wanted to see them win in life! If all I could offer was a smile, hug, encouraging word or God’s Word, then I will have served my purpose. I hope it’s something they can remember and say she helped me ignite the spark that helped me believe in myself, believe in God and have Faith to push myself to go further to walk in my purpose!
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I currently am a corporate trainer in the Healthcare industry for the past 5 years. I have over 18 years of experience in Healthcare administration where I hold a MBA within the same industry. I have a servants heart and love helping people. I believe through managing teams and training in corporate is what lead me to starting my business Positively Speaking, LLC. I believe what sets me a part is that I’m genuine, an active listener and a story teller. I know that is what makes me relatable. I have worked hard in corporate to move up and display my skills. I’m always willing to learn, take notes, network and stretch myself. One can’t become successful in something by remaining stagnant and not having an open mind. This is the same when I speak to women and young girls as an empowerment speaker, founder and CEO of Positively Speaking LLC. Positively Speaking is based on the three T’s, trials, transparency and transformation. All three are something that we all go through in life no matter if you’re in corporate or a creative. Trials are going to come with this journey called Life! It’s what we learn within the journey and be open to learning which becomes our transparency moments! Once we begin to understand those transparency moments, that is when we begin to transform. The transformation could be a new season, a new way of thinking or reacting to life situations. I believe the catch is that we should not only become transformed but share it with others for someone else may need to see how your Faith and being aligned with God got you through. I speak to women about how to become Spiritually aligned with God to find their purpose which makes it a little easier in becoming aligned and disciplined in the other aspects of our lives. Those other aspects are mentally, emotionally, physically and financially. This same formula works in corporate. When people hear the name Positively Speaking or see the logo, I want them to know that it is a brand that is here to help them become and walk in the authenticity that God created them to be. Not what society tells us but what we were uniquely made to do on this earth. Once we’ve mastered that, I believe that’s success!
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I’m originally from New Orleans so I’m always trying out a seafood spot. A few that are cool would be The Boiling Crab, Shell Shack, and Pappadeaux. Some fun places I like would be Dealey Plaza, Reunion Tower, walk around downtown Dallas and Klyde Warren Park are a few of my favorites.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Positively Speaking, LLC wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for the support of my mom Denise F. Graves-Criddle who is my biggest cheerleader. She always tells me to step out on Faith, don’t compare myself to others and to stay my authentic self. If it’s meant for me, it will be for me. To remember my why and remember that I’m first a daughter of the Most High King and He will never steer me wrong.
