All-Star Lineup of Speakers

April Kelsoe,
Mistress of Ceremonies
Certified Transformation Coach and Award winning Motivational Speaker

April is a certified transformation coach and an award-winning motivational speaker. She has helped many speakers take their presentations to the next level by coaching them into their power and greatness.  She’s the owner and office manager of New You Chiropractic Wellness Center in Colleyville where she coaches clients on weight loss and overcoming self-sabotage.  She’s the wife to Dr. Tony and Mama to Cherish 22, Faith 20, and Colten 16.

April’s purpose for creating this event is to offer an exceptional conference experience full of fun, adventure, and inspiration away from the typical dark, boring hotel conference room. As much as she loves attending events where she leaves inspired, motivated, and ready to take on the world, she wants to do more than see the inside of a conference room.  This was when the New Year New You Cruise Experience was born, when her vision of personal development met her desire for adventure! She loves exploring new places. Her philosophy is, “The world is a great big beautiful place and there’s a lot to be explored.”

She craves adventure and has been a scuba diver for over 20 years. She’s also an avid snow skier.  She’s been sky diving over Texas, zip lining through the rain forests, hiking through the jungle of Central America, swimming with sharks in the Caribbean, kayaking through the mangroves of Honduras, and tubing through the caves of Belize.

Now she invites you to explore the country of Cuba and Bahamas with her on this experience of a lifetime. Travel is transformational.  You never return the same as when you left.

In the midst of catching that Caribbean tan in the dead of winter, you will also be exploring your dreams, your vision, your desires for what you want to create, achieve, and breakthrough in 2019. 

Join us on a grand adventure that will get you inspired, motivated, and ready to take on 2019!

Martine Emmons,
Certified Transformational and Mindset Coach

Living a life plagued by many devastating events would be enough to break many people, but not Martine Emmons. Instead, it created a deep passion in her to love up, encourage, support and inspire others. It wasn’t remotely easy and would include overcoming sexual abuse that occurred before the tender age of 9, a physically and verbally abusive parent, a heart-breaking divorce, a cancer diagnosis, and most recently the losses of her mother, sister and brother.


Even through all this, Martine still looked for the positive and held on to the deep-knowing that not only was she meant to be happy, but she was meant to do so much more with her life. All these events in Martine’s life prepared and groomed her to meet people where they are and shine some light into their lives through encouragement and support. She recognized that life isn’t always sunshine and roses but it’s too short to be anything but happy.


Martine re-wrote her story and refused to settle for anything less than a thriving life, and now as a dually certified Transformational and Mindset Coach, she helps other women do the same. When Martine isn’t working with her clients, she enjoys spending time with her children and husband, traveling, and writing.


Martine’s biggest dream is to empower others through her books, coaching, and speaking with her core message being: we can thrive and discover our true purposes in the adversity and trauma that occur in our lives. Martine looks for opportunities to connect with people on a daily basis and thanks God for her many blessings.

Maru Iabichela
Spiritual prosperity teacher, mentor, motivational speaker & mommy. Founder of Infinite Receiving
Maru always had big dreams in her native Venezuela, but found herself a single mother with no money in Texas.  She realized through the words of Edwin Hubble (his namesake being the Hubble Telescope)  that the universe is expanding.  Maru realized her life was not going to realize her dreams if she couldn’t figure out how to get out of her own way. She needed to learn how to defriend resistance and expand infinitely, so she could truly receive and accept all of the goodness she wanted.   
Maru has been called “the Queen of Expansion” for her incredibly transformative work teaching women how to open up energetically, mentally and practically so they can invite in an avalanche of blessings and unstoppable prosperity.  Her flagship program Infinite Receiving has touched the lives of more than 300 Infinite Receivers who’ve used her paradigms to experience miraculous results in their lives and businesses.
Today she is taking a stand for expansion. All of her work seems to come back to this profound, beautiful, magical, practical word. Hopefully soon it’ll be your motto too.
