I'm a motivational speaker that encourages others that it's not too late to pursue their dreams or answer God's call for your life. I speak to youth, college students, men and women. My main focus is talking, motivating and encouraging men that are 30-50 years old to pursue their dreams. I pursued my dream of being a teacher at the age of 43 and wrote my first book at sixty-four years old.
I'm also a career and business coach. As a career coach I help people that feel stuck in a job they don't like and want to pursue their dream job. I also teach small business owners marketing strategies that help them grow their business by getting more leads, more conversions and make more money.
Price Range: $200-$500
Gig Length: 50 - 60 minutes
What to Expect
After my presentation, the audience will be encouraged to identify and pursue their dream job. People will learn how to discover their unique gifts, skills, desires, values, personality traits, and most of all their passion and purpose for life. Work doesn't have to be a means for just making a paycheck. A job or business should be aligned with one's passion and purpose, and when it is then it's not just work to make money. You can stop dreading Monday mornings and don't have to wait for retirement to start enjoying life.
When your audience leaves my presentation they will be inspired and encouraged to pursue work they love.
My goal as a speaker is to encourage your audience/congregation to pursue God's calling and live a passionate, purpose-filled life. I believe we were all created for a purpose and I want to motivate others to find that purpose, regardless of their age.
When I was a teenager I wanted to be a teacher, that was my passion and calling. I didn’t pursue my passion until I was 38 years old. I walked away from God and lived the life of a prodigal son from the age of 16-38. During that time I had over 25 different jobs.
I returned to my passion at the age of 38 after an amazing encounter with God. God gave me a second chance to live for Him and fulfill my calling of being a teacher. One week after my encounter with God I went back to school to pursue a teaching career. I started teaching at the age of 43.
I retired from classroom teaching 2012 and now I help others pursue their passion and calling as a Life & Business Coach.
It’s never too late to pursue your passion, whether it be going back to school, changing careers or starting your own business. I have also owned several businesses in the last 30 years.
I'm a facilitator for a seminar called, "Find the Work You Love in 48 Days. The seminar participants will learn and discover how to identify their God given unique skills, talents, passion, desires and personality traits so they can find or create work they love, their dream job. Contact me for seminar pricing.
In 2015 I wrote and published my life story about my "prodigal son"journey and how God restored my relationship with Him. It's a story of restoration through God's amazing grace. The book is called, "God Met Me at The Mailbox".
In my free time I like to fish from my kayak, I’m also a Kayak fishing guide where I live in Southwest Florida. My wife and I also like to travel to different places and spend time with family.
