charlayoungCharla Young Teaches & Empowers Women Worldwide to Exhale, Relax and Release

By Deborah A. Culp

Over 5 years ago Charla Young became the Founder/CEO of the ever growing, positive women’s group “Power to Exhale.” Based in Louisville, Kentucky the group has chapters across the United States, four countries and is still growing. P2E is headed by Charla but each chapter’s leadership is under “Power DIVA’s.” P2E is literally a breath of fresh air, a structured group that has been deemed a movement.

The women hail from all walks of life and they each bring their own flair their chapter and the movement as a whole. Race, color financial status doesn’t matter to Charla or P2E. Be they Judges, Doctors, Lawyers, Students or lay-people; every woman is treated the same like the Queen she is, with respect and much dignity. “I am my sister’s keeper” is alive and well within the entire “Power to Exhale” realm. This is very true on all levels and the group is growing as we speak.

Charla’s background is in communications and it carries over into her bestselling books. The latest literary gem, stemming in part from personal life experiences. “Life’s Lemons Make Damn Good Lemonade.” No doubt she “is an effective communicator and makes darn good lemonade too! (The recipe is in the book but she will share it….) There is something for everyone in P2E and it’s shared throughout in many ways. Via “Charla-Grams” emails from the Crown Queen (or P2E Top DIVA) , through the main Facebook Page, each Chapters Facebook pages, word of mouth and of course the main website. http://powertoexhale.org/

There are 3 cornerstones to P2E: A. Exhale for Women which asks:  “Are you Looking for a great group of women to make a connection? Looking to wipe out the negativity and drama in your life? Check out our women’s empowerment group. It’s life-changing!” B. Power Up University: Because Charla Young believes in feeding the mind and empowering members in all facets.  “The goal is to help our members your full potential and maximize what the universe gives you. We will help you Power Up in the areas of nutrition/exercise, emotional intelligence, financial literacy and life skills, to the best of our ability.”C. Power Girls: “The children are our future. To ensure our kids’ success, we must pour into them. We work with girls ages 6-17 in 10 different cities”.


In the past three months, we have launched 8 new chapters in U.S. cities across the country. That’s super exciting.  That means we have more opportunities to spread the love and mission of Power to Exhale which is to change the DNA (Demeaning Negative Attitudes) of women everywhere.

If you don’t yet have an official chapter in your city and you’d like to start one?  Please, reach out to us at power2changecommunications@gmail.com.  It’s simple and very powerful.

“We’ve gained 3756 members in the past three months.  We are definitely growing through the Power of God and YOU.  We thank you for spreading the LOVE.  We can change the world- One woman at a time”, stated Charla
