To Educate, Entertain, and Inspire people of ALL ages to be Successful despite the Transition, Change, and Adversity we face.
I've lived a life many might envy.....as a pro athlete, best-selling author, TV personality, business owner, counselor, and transition consultant to world class athletes - I've gained invaluable firsthand knowledge watching people reach dizzying heights and - sometimes - subsequent slippery slopes. My message is clear and about reaching success despite facing great change, transition, and adversity.
While experiencing a successful basketball career, I was prematurely injured at the peak of my athletic career and forced into a difficult change; I had to walk away from something I loved. In good company, as 100% of professional athletes ultimately experience job termination. One can either succumb to the change and adversity or rise above the challenges and develop new strategies for success. Armed with an advanced degree in behavioral science, I became a counselor and also a transition consultant for professional and Olympic athletes as they move from being sports icons to the next phase of their careers.
A masterful storyteller, allow me to relate to his listeners with stories easily transferable to their lives. In the process of entertaining them - I offer unparalleled life lessons that are meaningful and long-lasting on overcoming failure and gaining success. My messsage is appropriate for any organization and business facing transition, change, or adversity including the following industries: Communication, Construction, Education, Energy, Entertainment, Finance, Government, Healthcare, Human Resources, Insurance, Manufacturing, Medical, Military, Non-profit, Sports, and Women's Groups.
Your people will thank you for hiring me to challenge and inspire them on any of the following topics:
