Dr. Onyeka C Abengowe
Hello & great to meet you!
My name is Onyeka Abengowe. I am a wife, mother, and passionate clarity ambassador for women. I am also a Licensed Insurance Broker and Independent Financial Professional helping families protect their health and income, and build generational wealth.
I was born and raised in Nigeria, West Africa. Learning to adapt to my new environment after moving to the United States gave me the opportunity to explore careers in multiple industries, including Healthcare, Information Technology, Business, and Finance. I hold professional licenses and certifications in Nuclear Medicine Technology, Lean Six Sigma (Healthcare), Corporate Training, Business Negotiation, and Life Coaching. I have an MBA in Healthcare Management and a Doctorate degree in Healthcare Administration.
Why I created The Clarity Success Formula™
After almost 20 years in healthcare as a nuclear medicine imaging specialist and consultant, I wanted a change, but I wasn't sure where to start. I enjoyed interacting with and caring for my patients. As a consultant, I absolutely loved being involved in nuclear medicine imaging laboratory start-up and management, licensing, accreditation, and regulatory compliance. Despite my love and passion for Nuclear Medicine Technology, I knew I was stepping into another season of my life, I just wasn't sure what my next chapter was going to be. I couldn't imagine doing anything else!
I hated the idea of calling this phase of my life a "midlife crisis" because it sounded negative and induced a sense of urgency. I panicked and did what most people do - learn HOW to do what "everyone" else is doing. I went through some failed attempts at learning HOW to do things I had no business doing. The information overload became overwhelming. I was doing everything they said to do and putting in 1000%, and yet it didn't work for me. No matter how much I tried, I found myself losing interest after a few weeks. Finally, I decided to disengage from learning how to do what everyone else was doing and set out to find clarity to intentionally create a meaningful and fulfilling platform that reflects my purpose, calling, and life experiences. Instead of a midlife crisis, I found my midlife clarity!
The Clarity Success Formula™ is the result of my journey to find my midlife clarity. This formula empowered me to launch a career helping midlife women turn their "midlife crisis" into midlife clarity, empowering them to reinvent themselves and create an impactful and fulfilling next chapter.
Volunteering and Philanthropy
I have had the honor of sharing my knowledge and expertise, mentoring, and training less experienced colleagues. I advocate for random people I come across in my daily life. I care deeply about causes that motivate, empower and elevate women and children, especially girls, and have deliberately sought out and participated in such causes. I volunteer as a skills development mentor and facilitator for high school students in my school district. I also serve as the Vice President of the Dallas/Fort Worth chapter of International Association of Women (IAW). I am proudly part of the army of Dress For Success Volunteers.
My mission is to empower as many women and girls as possible to discover their calling and develop skill sets that position them to fulfill that calling successfully. Women are the bedrock of any society. There is a saying that "When you educate a woman, you educate a village." My modified version is " When you empower a woman, you empower a village". When women succeed, the village succeeds!
I look forward to meeting you. Together, let's impact the world for the better!

SPEAKING AND PANEL DISCUSSIONS
My speaking engagements and panel discussions are centered around topics that empower women and girls to succeed, finding clarity of purpose, identifying and developing skillsets for a successful career and lifestyle transition, negotiation skills to help combat bullying, education (academic & financial), and healthcare.
My topics of interest include but are not limited to:
(1) The importance of seeking clarity first in anything we do - business, relationships, career choice
(2) Empowering women and girls through academic and financial education and skills development
(3) How to feel powerful without making other people feel awful - Negotiation and conflict resolution skills
(4) Healthcare delivery strategies - Reengineering healthcare for better accessibility and affordability without compromising quality
(5) How medical imaging impacts healthcare delivery and patient outcomes
(6) The importance of skills development in creating positive patient care experiences - How healthcare providers can quickly establish credibility and gain the trust of patients and their families
There are seasons in life, and what works for one season may not be the right recipe for a different season of your life, so anytime is a great time to reevaluate, update and reposition yourself for success wherever you are.
