Lin Powell

Training Specialist

As an educator, Empowered’s instructional strategies were a game-changer for Lin’s classroom. Lin saw firsthand how Empowered helped students develop an entrepreneurial mindset that not only benefited themselves, but also helped society. Today, he trains educators on how to use these instructional strategies to unlock powerful outcomes in their educational communities. He is passionate about giving students useful, real-world concepts that will help them become contributing members of society long after graduation. 

Lin is inspired by his wife, Karla, who immigrated to the U.S. from Bolivia at age 14 without speaking any English. Today, she has a master’s degree and manages accounts for Fortune 500 companies, while being an amazing wife, mom, daughter, grandmother and friend. When he’s not training educators, Lin is based in Parrish, FL, where he enjoys playing golf, going to the beach, and spending time with his stepchildren and grandchildren.
