Texas Speakers Bureau – Life Balance Speaker, Bryan Dodge on “Taming Our Alligators”

Thursday, September 6th, 2018

We all have alligators of varying strengths, some bigger than others. Just like in the swamp, one really big alligator can affect the behavior of all the others.

Alligators you say? What are you referring to here? All I have is a pet cat!

I’m talking about those things in life that feed your self-esteem, the things that you can either have working for you or working against you. A bad alligator feeds fear and keeps you from taking steps to move forward, and from becoming a better person. They lead you to hide your weaknesses which in turn become bigger than your strengths. On the other hand a good alligator can stir your spirit, enabling you to find the muscle to look at the mirror and say “I’ve had enough!” Choosing to stand up for yourself and fighting back builds the momentum you need to reinforce positive thoughts.

You will never be rewarded with a better life until you are ready to fight back for a better you! Read the rest of this entry »

Texas Speakers Bureau – Marketing Speaker, Kelly McDonald on “What Blockchain Means for Marketers and Advertisers”

Wednesday, July 11th, 2018

kelly-mcdonald1_headshotUnless you’ve been traveling in outer space, you have heard of cryptocurrency and blockchain. Stories about cryptocurrency and blockchain, the technology that foments digital currencies (or tokens), dominate the news as newly minted millionaires seem to get younger every story. However, they are two separate entities when it comes to future applications.

Certainly, cryptocurrency is disrupting the financial world in many ways. However, blockchain will massively impact how we do business, communicate and transact. Its capabilities reach beyond the financial sector and will change many industries, including law enforcement, healthcare, intellectual property rights to name a few. And soon marketing in new and profound ways.

Dallas Speakers Bureau – Inspirational Speaker, Jim Stovall on Underachievers

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013

Dallas Texas Speakers Bureau presenter, Jim Stovall, on Underachievers.

Success is a wonderful concept.  It is self-defining and self-fulfilling.  Once we get past our school years with standardized tests and regular percentage grades, we emerge into the adult world where, to a great extent, we get to determine what is important to us. 

In school, the labels “achiever” or “underachiever” are determined as compared to your fellow students; however, in the real adult world, you and I get to decide what is important to us and what levels we want to achieve in our lives.  Only you and I know whether we are overachieving or underachieving because we establish the rules, set the target, and create the timeframe and deadlines in our own minds.  There is probably no greater factor in our own personal satisfaction in life than our own assessment of whether we are overachieving or underachieving as it relates to our own goals.

Austin Speakers Bureau – Business & Communication Speaker, Anne Pritchard Grady discussing The Four Letter Word That Equals Success

Monday, January 14th, 2013

Austin Texas Speakers Bureau presenter, Anne Pritchard Grady, discussing The Four Letter Word That Equals Success.

Four letter words have gotten a bad reputation.  I’m sure you can think of a handful of them right now.  There’s one four letter word, however, that equals communication, camaraderie, and results.  It has the capability to be extremely powerful, yet it often struggles to reach its full potential.  It often causes friction, friendship, and frustration, all at the same time.  What is this powerful four letter word?  TEAM.

You’ve probably seen or heard the acronym for T.E.A.M. (Together Everyone Achieves More).  Why then is it so hard to create effective, high performance teams?  Because teams are made up of individuals, and individuals are imperfect.

Houston Speakers Bureau – Motivational Keynote Speaker, Dayna Steele discussing how Second Best Won’t Get You Where You Want To Be

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

Houston Texas Speakers Bureau presenter, Dayna Steele, discussing how Second Best Won’t Get You Where You Want To Be .

“Second best is good enough.” That is the saying on a coffee cup a friend received at an annual company meeting. Seriously.

I’m not perfect but I’m better than the other choices. That was from one of the seemingly thousands vying for the Republican presidential nomination.

No. No. No.

That’s from me every time I hear or see something like this.

Life is too short to have anything but delusional notions about yourself.
