Hey there! I'm Thanh.

Ready to be encouraged and empowered to excel in life? Then you're in the right place. 

My name is Thanh Nguyen, an author, speaker, and coach. 

I was originally from Vietnam but later immigrated to the United States during my teenage years. During this time, I faced financial struggles, language barriers, and even abuse from my caretaker.

Despite the adversity, I achieved two master's degrees, one in Electrical Engineering and the other in Business Administration. I hold two United States patents and have gained over twenty years of experience in corporate America. I served as Vice President of Engineering at a prominent Engineering Procurement Construction firm before co-founding my own company.

As a certified coach, teacher, and speaker of the John Maxwell Leadership Team, as well as a long-time practitioner of mindfulness, I strongly believe in the power of the right mindset and support system to overcome challenges and make a positive impact. I am passionate about helping individuals thrive by sharing stories and techniques that foster a positive mindset and inspire courageous actions.

I co-founded The Encourage Team to offer leadership and personal development, empowering people to live positively and lead courageously.

Connect with me and embark on this journey of reflection, self-discovery, and accelerated growth.
