AdaPia d’Errico is a masterful storyteller.  Her video, Should You Trust The Voice Inside Of You?was created by Goalcast, one of the leading motivational video companies, after they discovered the video of her transformational speech, Journey to Freedom. This short video went viral and has been one of the best performing videos for Goalcast in 2019. It has over 30,000,000 views and shared over 200,000 times on Facebook. AdaPia continues to receive dozens of messages from men and women around the world saying, “thank you”, “I thought I was alone” or “I carried so much shame” or “your story set me free.”

Humbly, she knew that this video wasn’t about her. It was about a bigger message - we are all suffering under the weight of what we think others expect from us. We need to stop living for others, seeking external validation, and dismissing our inner voice that is telling us to honor ourselves. When we are strong in knowing who we are, we are strong for more than ourselves; we are strong for others, empowering them to be themselves and make better decisions. AdaPia is passionate about walking her talk, showing there is great strength in vulnerability, and that a new model of real and raw leadership is needed. A model she refers to as authority through authenticity.

AdaPia has spoken, presented or been a panelist on dozens of fintech and real estate industry panels over her career. She is a well-known and well-respected female executive in the financial technology space since 2014. Her work is helping to launch real estate crowdfunding as the JOBS Act created new opportunities for founders to access capital for entrepreneurial ventures; for non-professional investors to become angel investors and fund the next wave of small businesses and potentially groundbreaking companies.

She is an entrepreneur, speaker, author and facilitator who combines entrepreneurship, brand and business with the intentional development of personal leadership, self-mastery and self-awareness with accountability to the greater whole of humanity. AdaPia helps clients turn their ideas into businesses, their startups into funded and successful companies, and most importantly, helping clients clear the biases, limiting beliefs and destructive mindsets that inhibit growth - both personal and professional. She believes that self-awareness is the cornerstone of leadership. We can only lead others as far as we’re willing to understand ourselves, our motivations and our intentions, especially seeing clearly how we relate, operate and manifest our dreams and visions.

AdaPia is an advocate for connecting with other professional women, a sisterhood, to create a lasting bond and relationships. She believes that when women support each other, the drive forward towards the overall mission to bring more equality and opportunity to all women, everywhere. Without the community of women who’ve supported her during her entrepreneurial and personal journey, she is forever in their gratitude.

Part of her personal creative expression is through artful communication. She delivers impactful and transformational speeches on the mainstage and through her spoken word as host of her podcast - Real Wealth Real Health. AdaPia is also a prolific writer about self-mastery, personal empowerment and life’s journey on her blog. In addition, AdaPia is host of a monthly women’s circle where the participants connect with each other in an open, authentic, heartfelt way. She remains humbled by the transformation and she will daresay magical, and sacred depth of connections and deep healing that occurs in the circle.
