Welcome to Lucra!
If you’ve ever described your relationship with money as “it’s complicated,” you’re in the right place.
When Sean and Mindie met in 2009, they were both running small businesses in the personal development space. As they grew their respective companies, they began to work together on multiple projects. They married in 2012 but continued to run their own enterprises until 2018 when it became clear that they were only duplicating their efforts by running two businesses simultaneously.
Sean then joined Lucra as a co-owner to continue offering programs based on their expertise in psychology, wellness, spirituality, and the entrepreneurial journey. Sean passed away unexpectedly in 2019, yet he is still very much present in the work and mission that Lucra has held since the beginning.
That mission is dedicated to caring for the whole-life of entrepreneurs and leaders. It begins with getting clarity on your purpose at HeartPath. Once you have the vision crafted for your life and you know what you want, the next step is to focus on building entrepreneurial growth through The Lucrative Society. If you want to add speaking or coaching skills to your repertoire, there are two courses offered annually that will help: Cor Training for Coaches and Lucrative Speaker.
Mindie Kniss, Founder & CEO
Mindie Kniss, MFA, PhD, is an award-winning humanitarian, international speaker, and coach who left a Fortune100 career for the adventure of entrepreneurship. Soon after leaving Corporate America (during the 2008 financial crisis), she faced foreclosure, eviction, and eventually, bankruptcy. This led to living out of her car and a small office. Fast forward to today, Mindie is CEO of Lucra®. Her teaching on the science of Heart Intelligence has been heard on stages around the world. She has spoken on stages at Zappos, Pfizer, Mindvalley, Summit Series, and the National Speakers Association. Mindie was the recipient of the prestigious Global Health Fellowship based on her work with women and children in developing countries. She lived and worked in East Africa creating HIV/AIDS prevention initiatives. She is the author of the best-selling book The Heart of Consciousness. Mindie holds degrees in Theology, Creative Writing, and Philosophy.
Sean Stephenson, DCH
Dr. Sean Stephenson (1979-2019) was predicted not to survive at birth because of a rare bone disorder that stunted his growth and caused his bones to be extremely fragile (fracturing over 200 times by the age of 18). Despite his challenges, he took a stand for a quality of life that has inspired millions of people around the world. Since 1994, his powerful message has been heard at live events in nearly all 50 states and in 16 countries. Sean has presented at hospitals, universities, prisons, and companies such as Nike, Whole Foods, Zappos, Walmart, and Sharp Healthcare. He’s shared the stage with U.S. Presidents, billionaire business moguls, celebrities, and His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. Sean has appeared on everything from The Oprah Show to Jimmy Kimmel, in addition to online videos with tens of millions of views. The Biography Channel produced an hour-long feature on his life called, Three Foot Giant. His international best-selling book, Get Off Your “But,” has been translated into over a dozen different languages. Sean holds a degree in Political Science and a doctorate in Clinical Hypnosis, along with being a board-certified therapist. When Sean isn’t working he can be found in the gym, watching basketball, or reading side-by-side with Mindie. Visit Sean’s Legacy page.
