As a female entrepreneur, musician and experienced teacher, it is one of my passions to help motivate and inspire others to follow their dreams, both personal and business.
I believe the world needs more people bringing love, kindness, light and inspiration to their work, no matter what field you are in or what stage of your life you find yourself. I have found that sharing experience and lessons learned from my own journey from physical incapacity to award-winning songwriter can inspire others to explore how they too can achieve their potential!
To help fellow entrepreneurs, young an old minds alike, I created TALKS, COACHING SESSIONS AND MASTERCLASSES to inspire others by doing what inspires me!
This has lead me on a journey which includes delivery inspiring sessions to a variety of audiences ranging from classes of engaged PRIMARY SCHOOL KIDS to a 'Bold & Brilliant" TEDX AUDIENCE!
My sessions are TAILORED TO THE AUDIENCE and combine the motivational messages of my own personal story with engaging interactive learning experiences.

With the sole purpose of motivating others to follow their dreams and find ways to achieve them, no matter what challenges stand in their ways, Elaine shared with refreshing honesty, her story of paying attention to the guidance of that 'little voice inside', overcoming not only life changing injuries sustained in a car crash but also overcoming her own personal fears of not being 'good enough'.
She shares how she finally took action and worked hard to achieve her dreams, finding ways to live with the chronic pain, HMS and fibromyalgia resulting from injuries she sustained dint he crash, and how she manages to navigate through life now in the world of music.
Through sharing her story in an honest, positive and motivational way she hopes to truly inspire others with her words and her songs.
"...it's my way of 'passing it forward'" says Elaine.

If Elaine Lennon can't inspire you to work on your songwriting, no-one can.
I interviewed Elaine for the Songwriting Magic course. In this excerpt Elaine talks about writing the song, Fear (Breakup Song). She reveals both the message of the song and her writing process: dispensing tips, techniques and insights - in a way few can express so clearly.
Elaine's songwriting process isn't hindered by her busy family life, on the contrary it is crucial to adding that extra magic - that all great songs need.
Elaine Lennon is a breath of fresh air for songwriters: I'm confident that you will learn something valuable from this video.

As part of Scottish Education’s ‘STEM’ week I was invited into my son’s school class to sing some songs and talk about songwriting. These kids (aged 5-8 years) were so enthusiastic! We made a ‘band’ with drummers and backing singers...they even named it ‘The Dragonflies’ (cool name!). Together we wrote and performed a song about their class topic and they were all so engaged and involved!
What touched my heart the most about the entire experience was the gratitude these kids had for me sharing some time with them - they even wrote ‘Thank you’ cards and drew pictures of me playing my piano (some of the drawings had outstanding likenesses as you will see from the pics!).
One little girl in particular was so inspired by the songwriting that she took it upon herself to go home that night and write her very first song about birds (class topic)! WOW! I was so impressed by this 8-year-old’s effort that I asked her mum if could share her lyrics with you! Well done Stella!
Apparently the kids enjoyed songwriting so much they will be adding it to their class topics next week!
Wow! Isn’t it amazing how giving up a little of your time to nurture the minds of kids can have such a ripple effect?
I have so much admiration for all those teachers who have chosen to inspire little minds every day.
