I am so please at the success of the Speakers Summit! Our speakers were amazing. They shared their stories of where they had been and how they got to where they are now.
They were willing to share some of the really rough times. What made them special is that each speaker, despite having gone through a rough time in their lives where it would have been so easy to give up and say, “Nothing is working in my life. Why should I try? It doesn’t matter what I want, nothing is going to work. It’s just a waste of time.”
Thank God, they did not say those things. Thank God, they decided they were not going to accept the status quo or what others said or thought about them.
Each in their own way said, “I can do better!” Once they made that decision, they sought help from people doing the thing they wanted to do and looked for coaches and mentor to help them. More important, they were willing to be teachable.
Chris Finn at the height of his life at age 21, suddenly found he could no longer walk. It would have been so easy to let go of his life long dream of playing hockey. Instead, due to the strength and courage of his mother, he found the courage and strength in himself and anther way to fulfill his dream. He found away to play the game, then went on to coach others into winning the championship twice. He has won major awards and recognition internationally. Now he is helping others to realize their dreams. If you would like to help Chris, contact him at: firstname.lastname@example.org. He would love to hear from you.

Lady Christy told of her fear when she first came to this country. Her fear of being a stranger in a strange land with no friends or family. She had to change the perceptions she had of her self and others and made the decision, she would survive. Now she helps other work with their mindset and changing any negative perceptions they may be holding on to that is keeping them from their desires. For anyone needing help in this area, email Lady Christy at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our last speaker, John Pyron, is a marketing champ. His story of coming from a very small town in Texas to California and where he could have ended up had not some one took an interest in him was very moving and motivating. Some one saw the man he could become, not the boy bad boy he was and encouraged him in a different direction. Now, people come to him when they have a marketing problem. If you or someone you know need marketing help, I encourage you to contact John at: http://www.johnpyron.com.
