There is something incredible about the resilience of a visionary. Cynthia Acosta is a woman that is unapologetically brave, powerful, and committed to her vision. Originally from Baltimore, Maryland, she has had a myriad of life experiences that have molded her into both a fascinating yet humble person. Her willingness to embrace extraordinary opportunities have led her to working for NASA, hosting MTV Cribs, producing music videos, and becoming a trader in foreign and cryptocurrency, commodities, stocks, and metals.
She’s now known as the Forex Queen, as a woman who has taught hundreds of new traders the basics of trading foreign exchange and cryptocurrency. When you think of a forex trader, you might not immediately think of a statuesque redhead as the commanding expert in this profession; however, Cindy’s commitment to mastering her trade (pun intended) has catapulted her success in this exciting new and male-dominated industry. She has an undeniable connection with millennials, an affinity for smartphone technology, and a necessary appreciation for the power of creating passive income. Dedicated to experiencing financial freedom and living on her own terms, Cindy decided to master a new skill that continues to open doors for her.
What’s interesting to note is the fact that when Cindy was younger, she actually went to school to become a nurse. However, her path quickly changed when a family tragedy occurred and she decided to help her family’s growing business. It’s apparent in her life’s work that she’s always had a desire to help and heal others. So her initial instinct to become a nurse does make a lot of sense when looking at her current role in the development of others as a certified entrepreneurship and business coach. Cindy’s role as the Women’s Wealth Advocate allows her to help women embrace financial success, independence, and learn how to use their wisdom of wealth to transform the lives of others.
Committed to passing on the keys to having a powerful mindset, Cindy is a motivational speaker and hosts a podcast “Get Real with Cindy.” She believes that transparency and authenticity are important in coaching others beyond their past limitations. She likes to focus primarily not on the blemishes of our past but on the mindset and process it takes to move forward fearlessly. Some of her winning mindset keys are faith, mentorship, gratitude, and using a goal board. A quote that she lives by is, “See the invisible to achieve the impossible.” Also, when writing goals, she challenges clients to ask the following question: “How are your goals going to impact other people?” In this regard, you are multiplying the power of your vision by allowing it to enhance the lives of others which makes it more achievable in your mind.
As a woman who knows the power of servant leadership, Cindy uses her gifts and resources to pour into the dreams of those in her life. Desiring always to give more than she takes, she is an philanthropist that seeks opportunities to help both her local and global community. Life’s first role as a servant for Cindy was becoming a mother to her three children who are now successful adults. While transforming the professional lives of others, it’s important to note that Cindy adjusted with the ebbs and flows of life and family and became a caregiver to her parents. It’s a reality that many face, but few leaders discuss when talking about success, adversity, and the power of strong relationships. It takes sacrifice to thrust oneself into the role of caregiver, but it takes a strong support system to help you thrive while remaining there. Cindy’s incredible life lessons and experiences have allowed her to harness inner strength that helps her always replenish herself in abundance while serving others. Knowing that there is always room for more for you and others is what makes living a life of service possible. To learn more about Cynthia Acosta visit www.iamcynthiaacosta.com.
