EmpowerYOU Series-Ep. #1 Success!

I've done quite a bit of speaking this year from 4th graders to millennials in Salt Lake City, Utah (which is a beautiful city should you ever visit).  I speak about the pursuit of passion, sharing your greatness already within, & helping others while doing it; which is my passion.  This summer I met an amazing 17yr old entrepreneur, Kaina Lisibach, who started a non profit called One Page Closer; which donates fully stocked bookcases to kids & teens in low-income communities.  I was so impressed by her!  Together we've created the EmpowerYOU Series!  

How it Works:

  • Myself & 1 rotating entrepreneur will take over 1 school period to share with students our business journeys, tips, & how they can apply that to their future.
  • To attend, students have to bring 1 book to donate to those in need to One Page Closer.

Thats it!

I'm often asked, "How can I start my business?"  Although I'm not a pro, I hope what I've learned so far can inspire students, & they can help others at the same time!  Plus, who doesn't love a break in the school day? :)

Ep. #1 at John A. Ferguson High School was a success!  I get nervous when creating new ventures not knowing the outcome.  Almost 200 students attended & a good amount of books were donated!  Here's a recap of how it all went down!

    They’ve created products & services we’ve all heard of, turned entire industries upside down, redefined what it means to be successful when you start a business and many have also written business books or taught online business courses about it. Suffice it to say, their business advice is worth it’s weight in gold.
    Not surprisingly, many of these entrepreneurs had very similar pieces of business advice to share, based on what’s worked for them when it comes to learning how to start a business.


    Today, I’m> bringing in some of the world’s most successful and respected entrepreneurs to share their best business advice and success tips so you’ll be prepared to start a business in today’s climate.
    All in all, despite receiving great business advice and success tips back during my college days, I’ve gone on to learn more about how not to start a business through my experiences. Still, my early failures haven’t stopped me in learning from my mistakes and moving on to become gainfully self-employed.


    Because, when things get hard, if you’re chasing just the dollars, or a random market opportunity, you’re not going to be able to have the fortitude, the passion, to stay with it
    As an entrepreneur, I’ve painstakingly learned the importance of heeding the best business advice I’ve received from many of the world’s top entrepreneurs. The bottom line: It takes a lot to start a business and grow it to profitability. Funny enough, the most impactful lessons have come from my biggest failures though.
