Spring 2018    Edition Theme:


Join me for a half-day transformational and life changing experience.  This is an extraordinary opportunity for you to join me for an intimate gathering where you will walk away from this session with a clear understanding of what's really holding you back.  You will also experience a real, authentic and healing conversation about what it takes to release and let go.  This WILL NOT be your 'average' or 'regular' women's seminar or workshop.  


Finally, an event designed for women who constantly pour out, but never take the time to allow themselves to be poured back into.

"I completely loved the entrie event.  The location was beautiful.  The wine punch was delish. lol.  As ALWAYS, I hung on to every word you spoke.  God knew what He was doing when He lead me to the event that we met at.  I could sit and listen to you for days. Your words give me hope and the desire to be a better person."



"This presentation confirmed the things that I knew I needed to do and the things that are already in process.  We need things like this on a continuous basis to encourage, uplift and re-establish women who are in need of confirmation."


~Leah V.

"Raw, Uncut, and Unadulterated Truth!"

(And what on earth qualifies me to host such a powerful event?)


Well for those of you who've never worked with me or had the opportunity to be in my space ...


I'm Detra M. Trueheart, wife, mom, daughter, sister, friend and lover of Rotties.  I am all about family, marriage, leadership and living in and on purpose... but not at the expense you losing yourself.


I am a faith and life purpose mentor to emerging women leaders desiring to shift their beliefs and behaviors to live an extraordinary life. My company, TrueheartSpeaks Enterprises, is a lifestyle management and empowerment firm where I help women like you get clear, show up authentically, get rid of the excuses, and do what it takes to Live Life IN & On Purpose.


You see... I know what it’s like to achieve success, receive awards and accolades and still be unfulfilled.  As a national dance competitor, former Miss Buffalo, Miss Western New York, two-time third runner up in the Miss America New York State competition, 1st runner up to Miss Black World all before the age of 25, I learned that success doesn’t always guarantee happiness or PURPOSE.


Also knowing first hand what it means to endure job loss, financial strain, family challenges, and heartbreak, I understand the power of creating your own reality with the thoughts you think and the words you speak. Using my more than twenty-five combined years of pageantry, performing arts, leadership, empowerment, and personal development expertise, I am your ‘go to’ girl for life purpose, authenticity, and women & girls leadership and empowerment.


I am founder of my not for profit, the Young Miss Buffalo Pageant: Scholarship & Enrichment program.  This is a 16-week girls scholarship and enrichment program what culmiates into our annual scholarship pageant.  For the past 15 years, much of what I have taught the youth that I worked with, I now teach and share with my speaking, coaching and consulting clients.  I have a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, a Master of Public Administration and a Master of Arts in Mental Health Counseling. This basically means I like running things, being in charge and enjoy helping people solve and work through life's challenges.  It also means I have put in my time, talent and treasure ($$) to be equipped to share the powerful and transformational content you will be receiving at the event. 


The most important thing I want you to know is that I am just like you.


I am a woman with many hats and many roles and every now and then I forget to take time out to allow myself to be poured back into.  You see, I come from a culture of strong women who don't always ask for help when they need it, let alone tell you when something's wrong. Most times we also don't take time to know and understand who we are outside of those many hats and roles we play.


On a mission to change that, I created this event.  An event where you will have time at the end of your work week to be in the safe space of other women who get it, get you and who also want a moment where they can just BE.
