Empower the Champion Within You

Like many young boys, my childhood dream was to become a professional football player when I grew up.

However, despite my positive attitude and passion for the game, I was not a good athlete. In fact, I admit; I was spastic. So when the ball unexpectedly popped into my hands during a scrimmage game, I started to run for my life.

It is from this unforgettable experience that I discovered 7 keys to GO THE EXTRA YARD™ to become the CHAMPION I was meant to be. It is through these inspirational keys that I was transformed to achieve the significance of my purpose.

During my message, I take you on a thought provoking, inspirational and fun ride that begins with me running over 80 yards toward the goal line. Through humor, inspirational stories and easy-to-implement strategies, my message provides practical insight to engage, energize and empower you to GO THE EXTRA YARD™ to become the champion steward you are meant to be.

This message ignites the passion of significance for those who have the HEART OF THE CHAMPION.

My V.A.L.U.E.-based message will leave you with a renewed sense of enthusiasm for who you are and what you value most. My message will empower your V.A.L.U.E. Core for a focused VISION (Purpose), positive ATTITUDE (Perspective), inspired LOVE (Passion), informed UNDERSTANDING (Proficiency), increased ENERGY(Power).
