My years as a motivational speaker are often filled with memorable experiences that I wish I had documented. This year I plan to start. I hope not only to give a chronicle of my experiences and the places I travel, but also to leave a road map for perhaps others who are trying to break into the business of inspiring people. With all that is going on in world, I hope that I can keep moving people to be their best.
The year for me is not a typical calendar year. I provide keynote presentations, workshops and parent presentations to schools wanting to develop strategies for enhancing cultural sensitivity. Since “schools” is the key component, I closely follow the academic calendar, which begins in August and ends in June.
My travels this year begin in San Marcos Texas. I was asked to give the Keynote address for the districts welcome back convocation. The main objective is to remind the teacher and staff of the powerful impact they have on children and inspire them to do their best. This is particularly important in these days where school budgets are being cut, classroom size is increasing and learning is impaired. I hope to leave the teachers with the knowledge that even under these circumstances, they make I difference in the lives of many students.
