2. Grit-A-Tude

Pushing through life’s challenges is made easier when good mentors enter your life. They guide you through your mistakes and often can work magic in pointing out opportunities and goals that help advance your agenda. Along the way, you’ll encounter the power of resilience as you navigate life through loss, ride to success, and understand how to find one’s grace to balance the belief in oneself.  The presentation focuses on a few key elements:

  • Perspective
  • Pushing through Fears
  • Power to Believe

    3. The Art of Story Telling

    We all love a good story, and everyone has a personal story to share.  The keys to successful storytelling are these elements:

    • Passion: a strong connection to the subject matter in the story
    • Perseverance: it’s that drive to share the powerful elements of the story and not give up until the audience feels that determination
    • Positive Projection is an opportunity to showcase one’s confidence in their project. This can be done by demonstrating a focus on the desires, dreams, and fears of the characters for the audience.

    Sessions can have a workshop format based on the dynamics of the audience. Storytelling helps paint pictures through various mediums including Television, Magazines, Social Media, Theater, and Art.

    Customized workshops and other speaking topics are available. Please inquire.
