I am Carol Lynn Howard ~The Boat Launcher~


I am a Certified Executive Coach (IAPCC), Ordained Minister (PCAF), Mentor, Instructor, and Public Speaker.

I hold a bachelor's (IUSSW) and master's degree (U of I) in Social Work with a concentration in Families & Children. With over a decade of experience in both ministry and the corporate world, my journey has led me to a powerful realization; M.E. is vital to unlocking True Wealth!

Like many of you, I wear a multitude of hats on a daily basis, I am a mother, wife, grandmother, daughter, coach, confidant, mentor, teacher, trainer, etc. On a daily basis, we all face making difficult discissions, caring for and engaging with others, loss on so many levels, while juggling family, work, ministry, relationships, entrepreneurship, and so much more.

In all this I realized that the state of internal being including Mental and Emotional well-being, is intricately linked to the success of your BOAT; (yourself and/or business). It's not just about external strategies, systems and resources; it's about allowing yourself to grow, release and harness the immense potential within you.


I've learned that when you prioritize and nurture your mental and emotional well-being, you unlock the true wealth and potential of your boat, leading to a more fulfilling and balanced life.


As we connect, I will empower you to put M.E. (your mental and emotional well-being) first, helping you unlock your true wealth potential so that you can live a fulfilled, balanced life.

My Story

Contrary to many popular trending thoughts and beliefs, I definitely look like everything I have been through! As I share the testimony of my personal journey, many often say to me, "You are so strong" or "I am inspired by your strength," and all I can think is, if it was not for God, I don't know where I would be right now!


I have come to believe that my resiliency, tenacity, and flat-out audacity have been cultivated by every single test, trial, and valley I've experienced, as well as all of the amazing and rewarding seasons of my life. From getting pregnant at the age of 16, dropping out of high school, being divorced twice, to living in a homeless shelter for battered women as a single mother of 3 and being a welfare recipient, my journey has been a testament to the perseverance power of Christ.


See, I don't take for granted that my outlook on life and mindset could be so different right now! After all I have experienced, I still have a smile on my face, see the good in others, and pour out relentlessly to those around me. I wholeheartedly believe in encouraging, empowering, and cultivating mindsets so that those I connect with will have the opportunity to become all they were created to be and purposed to do.


My journey has shaped my belief in the incredible potential within each individual, no matter their circumstances. Through it all, I've learned that transformation is possible, and that's what drives me as The Boat Launcher—to empower and launch others out to set sail on their own journeys of growth, resilience, and success.
