Les Brown – Author, motivational speaker

Most of us go through life pretending — pretending that we’re satisfied where we are, pretending that everything is OK, pretending that that we don’t have any special goals, ambitions or desires when really deep down inside we do really want more. Find out what it is you want and go after as if your life depends on it. Why? Because it does. It’s time for you to look within yourself and decide that I’m in charge of my destiny. I’m in charge here.

Speaker: Les Brown believes that you have the power to change your life and he knows what he’s talking about, because he’s done it. Les and his twin brother grew up on the tough streets of Miami’s Liberty City after being adopted at the age of six weeks by Mamie Brown, a single woman with a big heart. Les still calls himself Mamie’s boy. She expected things of him, so he graduated from high school although he’d been mistakenly labeled mentally retarded in grammar school. And he built himself a successful career as a fast-talking disc jockey although he had no radio training. And he became a community leader and was eventually elected to three full terms in the Ohio state legislature. Along the way, Les developed a hunger for reading and self-improvement that led to his speaking career. Today he spends his time enjoying his family relaxing and being with his six children and giving about 200 speeches a year which focus on helping people find ways to overcome the obstacles they face in their own lives.
