Do you FEAR Confrontation?

By: Darryl Bellamy Jr. Have you ever been in a situation where you knew you should speak up, do something, but you push it off to someone else, ignore it, or remain silent? As someone who tried to avoid confrontation at ALL costs, this was me. I’m still working through it, but I’ve improved a lot over the past few years because the more I’ve challenged myself, the easier...

Do, Delegate and Dream as a Lady Leader on Campus

By Quinn Conyers When I stepped on Campus as a college student, I wasn’t really sure what to expect!

Adding Value: How to get the most bang for your buck from speakers

By: Dan Faill For over a decade I booked speakers and workshops to come and make an impact, and to get people to think in different ways. Often when speakers come, it is only to provide a specific service, and then they are gone. Depending on who gave the keynote, attendees might talk about it for a while, or they might not. In this day and age it’s important...

Real Men Talk About Their Feelings…For Real

By Josh Rivedal Men are willing to talk about the size of their prostate glands, or how much Viagra they’re allowed to take, but they’re still not willing to be open about their mental health.

The Kid From Atencingo

A few hours south of the United States, you’ll find a typical Mexican town. Although unassuming at first glance, it enchants you with the sound of roosters crowing in the early morning, and the chiming bells from the Catholic cathedral that echo across rolling hills.

Enjoy this Perfect Present

Just recently I was in the midst of traveling to a speaking engagement during one of Mother Nature’s angriest times. Meaning nowhere in the US was safe from her cold hands. While I was trying to figure out how to get from point A to point B with canceled flights, blizzard conditions and eventually a canceled gig.

Following #MeToo, a #MeFIRST Framework for 2018

In 2009, at the age of 20, I was raped and beaten—nearly left for dead, by a stranger who helped me change my flat tire. Thanks to: an amazing roommate who (despite my hesitation) put me in her car and took me to the hospital, a sex crimes detective and attorney who were determined to put this man behind bars, and a supportive circle of friends and family who...
