I believe that sharing what I hold to be the pinnacle of earning a living and doing what I love most is not a fantasy but a reality. I look forward to pursuing motivational speaking to fulfill both the aforementioned criteria, but also to have a meaningful impact on the generations that will come after me.
Motivational speaking is something that I recently discovered as a passion of mine throughout entrepreneurial pursuits. Too many young people are stuck in a vicious cycle of economic hardship, environmental negativity, and lack of direction. There is no shortage of ambition and motivation in the world, rather there is scarcity in navigation.
The point of pursuing my education is to obviously better myself, but equally about creating temporal success in the professional work. From that position, I can create a platform to share the navigation so many lack and to empower young people to take control of their lives, whether it is familial, financial, spiritual, or otherwise.
Flesh and bone comes and goes, but ideas live forever. I know achieving this goal will change the world meaningfully as other people, empowered by my expression of hope and direction, will take up the mantle I will leave behind. I can only dream of how profoundly we can change the world if people with similar vision are financially able to create a platform for motivational speaking and reach the tens of millions of people that need to hear this message.
