Leadership Speaking

For some time, I have had a longing to share stories from my life in order to teach an motivate people from their walk through life. Over the years, I have been traveling across the country and sometimes around the world, giving speeches about how to succeed. By speaking in group settings, I can share my experiences with a broader community. It is also an opportunity for me to give audiences more details of my life so that they can understand my career and my life experiences.

My purpose for sharing these stories and life lessons is that I have a deep desire to show audiences around the world how to connect with people, how to discover their passions and how to succeed in life.
