No obstacle is insurmountable. As a best-selling author, Guest Lecturer of Psychology at Lone Star College-University Park, Philanthropist, Organizer, Manager and President of my own company, I have amassed over 25 years of practical experience in just about every aspect of life. As a result of my professional skills in the boardroom, the classroom (and even on the campaign trail), I am able to share the valuable lessons I've honed to illustrate that everyone (man, woman and child) is equipped to overcome the most difficult challenges. I spread that message as a Motivational Speaker. I also mentor and manage comics and poets and I am an active, altruistic member of my community.
Carlos Wallace is a name you don't want to ever forget.. Mr. Wallace is an extradinary speaker who is able to understand his audience. He is captivating, mesmerizing and will leave you a message that will stay with you. I highly recommend Carlos Wallace as a guest speaker for any type of event that you are hosting. He will not dissapoint you and I assure you without a doubt that once you have him as your guest speaker!!! You will bring him back..
Response from Carlos Wallace:
I am sincerely grateful to the students, faculty and staff of the Psi Beta Honor Society and Lone Star College for this special honor. While I'm not one for trophies, I am humbled by the consideration.
Thank you for reminding me our mission to encourage and inspire others, young and old, will never be in vain. #forward

What to Expect
"Wallace made his audience see that no matter what your circumstance you can make it through life. Your life is whatever you make of it."
"One has only to spend a single day with the man as he prepares for a sold-out comedy event, plans a strategy meeting with his artists and staff, prepares for a presentation with the President of Lone Star College, gathers his thoughts and ideas for a television or radio interview or transcribes notes for his new book, “The Other 99 TYMES” and you will realize (if you play close enough attention) this is a mind that is constantly at work. Carlos Wallace literally thinks with machine like precision."
"As he noted in Life Is Not Complicated, You Are, challenges and negativity should become a catalyst to success."
Born in East, Texas, Professor Carlos Wallace is a 5th generation railroader and Navy veteran. A member of the American Legion, he is also a graduate of the National Labor College and Union Pacific’s elite Brakeman/Conductor school. The International Organizer helped run several political campaigns including that of Democratic Presidential candidate Barack Obama.
The Adjunct Professor at Lone Star College-University Park and member of the Psi Beta National Honor Society in Psychology, ranks among Houston's top education advocates and philanthropists. He follows in the footsteps of his late mother Alice Wallace (an educator and coach). Wallace advances her academic principles by providing financial assistance to students through the Alice Wallace Foundation. Wallace is also President and CEO of entertainment and philanthropy company, Sol-Caritas. Sol has produced a series of multi-city tours and events featuring stand-up comics and entertainers from Houston, New York, Chicago and Los Angeles. The company is the only Houston-based entertainment enterprise to produce over 140 comedy and poetry shows, sell more than 80, 000 tickets and donate generously to over 85 non-profit local and internationally recognized charities, including Covenant House, the American Diabetes Association, Haiti Relief, the American Cancer Society, and Lupus Foundation of America..
His critically acclaimed (link hidden) bestselling book “Life Is Not Complicated, You Are: Turning Your Biggest Disappointments Into Your Greatest Blessings”, is taking the literary world by storm. Carlos uses his compelling story of triumph and tragedy to explore the value in everyday life experiences and demonstrate how every one can use his or her past to become empowered. Each chapter is filled with poignant, sometimes painful memories chronicling the loss of both his parents and grandparents before the age of 40, the harsh reality of financial ruin and the devastating effects of one of the greatest natural disasters in U.S history. Wallace reveals how he overcame those obstacles to become one of the most successful entertainment promoters and managers in the country. This cover-to-cover reflection on inner strength and endurance also tackles topics such as depression, betrayal, success and victory with sensitivity and perspective.
The proud father divides his time between homes in Houston and New York.
