Andrea Mason is a Personal Accountability Coach mentored by Les Brown, one of the world's most renowned motivational speakers. Andrea motivates people and encourages them to overcome their fears to help them create the best version of themselves with the power of forgiveness. She coined the phrase PLAY: Plan Life According To You.

Andrea studied psychology.  She was put up for adoption as a baby, and because of that she never knew her true identity. She spent years trying to figure out who she is and what her purpose was, all while holding resentment towards her past. 

She realized the power of forgiveness when she was diagnosed with a terminal autoimmune disease. She realized that she needed to forgive herself for a past she could not control. 

Her doctor told her that the only way she would be allowed out of the hospital was if she could walk by herself. So she did. Mind over mater cured her of her health issues, and she now has a clean bill of health. She decided she was not giving up and that she was going to beat this. She forgave herself and did not suppress her emotions, and just like that, her health improved.
