Leigh Weinraub has taken the skills she learned as a competitive tennis player and coach and combined them with her education background and knowledge to help people look within to find solutions through single-word cues on clothing.
Leigh started by writing words upside down on the clothing of her clients. From there she developed Mind in Motion, a company which designs clothing and accessories to provide visual cues to the wearer through actionable words designed to instill confidence and a winning attitude.
On today’s episode, Leigh talks about her journey in founding Minds in Motion, how the single-word cues help in empowering the wearer and the strength blanket project and why she feels it will lead the way for her business.

About Our Guest
Leigh Weinraub is an entrepreneurial powerhouse and renowned speaker; a triple threat visionary with intelligence, passion and a lifetime desire to help others reach their personal best. She also still has a wicked backhand.
Leigh was an avid tennis player growing up, rising quickly through the national junior tennis ranks before accepting a full scholarship to play at Northwestern University. After graduation she coached the tennis teams at Dartmouth and Northwestern, leading the latter to consecutive Big Ten championships and a top three national ranking.
Through coaching she saw the need firsthand for using psychology in sports and enrolled in the Masters program at Northwestern for Counseling Psychology. Upon graduation she built a thriving practice, working with both athletes and non-athletes, using innovative “walk and talk” sessions to instill confidence and empowerment.
While working with a young athlete she wrote BREATHE upside down on the bottom corner of a shirt to help her focus during a tennis match. Others started asking for the same. So she printed dozens, her clients asked for more. Word got around and eventually sparked the Mind in Motion movement – apparel, accessories, bags and journals, all focused on the visual cues of words to remind each of us to be our best selves.
