Hi, my name is Wendy Salajka

Keynote Speaker | Facilitator | Podcaster | Writer | Mindset Coach | Human Design

I have been a professional speaker since 2003. Known as “the Getting Unstuck Speaker”. I help people get out of their head, to stop listening to the negative thoughts and voices that live in their brains. I help people be more confident, more decisive, to resist overwhelm and get in control before reaching burnout.

I am an ex-radio talk show host and I am currently in the process of  writing two books: “The 5 Guiding Principles”  and “Don’t be the Second A**hole in the Room.”

I was born in New York and that is where my early foundation was set and raised in the Chicago suburbs where I still live today.

What makes me so awesome?

My philosophy and my message.

I help you embrace who you were born to be by providing actionable tools so you can stop letting fears, insecurities, limiting beliefs, and saboteurs – both in your head and standing in front of you stop you from living life on your terms.



What I do

I do anything I can to help people stop believing the thoughts in their heads. To stop allowing the things people say to them and the things they say to themselves cause them to stop going after something they want in their life. 

I think we can all make our lives harder than they are supposed to be and it’s about time we all stop and go for it!

My keynotes are designed to get you out of your head and out of your own way. I incorporate my 5 Guiding Principles and 5 Core Skills to provide actionable tools you can implement immediately.


My podcast "Identify & Conquer" is all about identifying what keeps you stuck while providing mindset shifts and actionable tools to reframe your thoughts and conquer your saboteurs.


I am in the process of writing two books "The 5 Guiding Principles" and "Don't Be the Second A**hole in the room"

In addition to the books, I also answer questions that are asked in my speaking engagements, through social media and through client conversations in the "writing" section.

My expertise

Getting people out of their heads and living life on their terms. No more limiting beliefs and no more allowing their brains to sabotage them. And no more listening to the negative input from others in their lives.
