“No” is what fuels Andra Douglas.  Her simple desire to play football as a young girl led her to ultimately play and own a professional women’s tackle football team in NY.  In Andra’s new book, “Black and Blue: Love, Sports and the Art of Empowerment” she chronicles through a driven character, all it took to play the pigskin and more.  In addition to her entrepreneur acumen – Andra also worked for several of the top media and entertainment companies  and is also a gifted artist.  Her parents influence and her passion for sport and art have driven Andra to become this phenomenal success story.

“Mark Farrell is a dynamic speaker who will captivate the audience by sharing his personal story of how he was able to overcome challenges in life and worked his way to success.  We scheduled Mark for 45 minutes, but our students were so engaged in his story that Mark spoke for over 1 hour.  I still have students approach me and discuss Mark's message and say, "if he could do it, so can I”
