Video Blog Testimonials – Teresa, Founder and CEO Academic Development Group

I'm so excited to share the opportunity that Strategic Speaking has provided for me. Strategic Speaking provided a scholarship for me to attend the National Speakers Association conference. The scholarship showed me that someone believed in me and my passion to empower youth. My goal is to empower youth to believe in themselves and grow academically and personally. Being involved with Strategic Speaking and the Let Your Life Speak Foundation as afforded me the opportunity to give back.  I recently was asked to speak at the same conference I once  only dreamed of attending!  Bart is focused on changing the world one person at a time. Working with him allowed me to believe in myself to realize I too can help to change the world and make a difference! aHR0cHM6Ly93d3cueW91dHViZS5jb20vd2F0Y2g/dj0xZzd4ZWVJU3dvTQ== ...

The Number One Reason for Not Achieving Remarkability

The Excuse of All Excusses. "Why I can't...." What the heck happened to why I can!! I just had lunch with some of my colleagues.  These folks are truly my inspiration.  They probably don’t realize it …………they are the reason I keep going.  Their hope and heart is the fuel in my day!!  We all have people like that in our lives………I know you do too!  It had been a while since we all had gotten together.  It was awesome to catch up. We listened to a short clip from Jim Rohn:  The magic of Part-time.  Jim Rohn talks about “working part time on your fortune while you work full time on your job!”  Go to YouTube…….search on Jim Rohn.  There are 60 clips to inspire you forward.  He is my mentor.  I heard him speak 30 years ago.  Don’t miss an opportunity to hear him. Jim’s talk reminded me to two simple concepts:  Your moment of transition & your process of transformation. If any of you have moved past the point of saying I want to do something different and are making some steps in that direction you can talk about your moment of transition.  The moment of ...

The Path to Remarkability…Walking the Red Carpet!

CREATING YOUR OWN RED CARPET!!! In January, I had the awesome opportunity to attend the Grammy’s. I had always wanted to attend an event like this! I thought this is going to be incredible! It was! The show is completely different in person compared to seeing it on television. I also had the opportunity to go to the after party. That was a blast! The decorations were spectacular, the food was great and the sights tremendous! I attended with a group of likeminded business people trying to make a difference. They were really what made the trip so fantastic. I was honored to be a part of such a fine group of people! The part I found the most disappointing was walking the red carpet….. ok…..ok……….let me explain! I can already hear you saying,  ”Bart are you nuts?” What I discovered are that there are TWO red carpets……………..one for the stars and one for everyone else! The stars’ red carpet is filled with reporters, TV staff, THE BIG STARS, cameras and the Grammy staff. The other red carpet runs parallel to the red carpet for the start. At many points there is a screen that really keeps you from seeing much! ...

Let the Dreamers Wake the Nation!

Let the Dreamers Wake the Nation! Our Job is to Start a Revolution! Jim Rohn once said, “If you want to attract the committed………..you must be committed!” It is not possible for us to conquer our challenges if we are not committed. It is even more impossible for us to lead the way for others, no matter what we share or how we share it………………….if they don’t see us and hear us as committed. We don’t have the luxury of only talking the talk, we must walk the walk. This is not something for just every day, it is for EVERY MOMENT! Each of us has a challenge that works to hold us back. We must be committed to work past it! This is the work we must do to lead the way for others. A huge monster wave would scare a regular swimmer into not even trying the wave. He would stand on the shore and watch others. The surfer is different! For him the wave creates a tremendous thrill. He has ridden the waves. He knows the thrill of victory. He has conquered. He is the example for those on shore. Only because he has conqurered, can the ...

Let the Remarkability Challenge Begin!

Are you done yet……………………..? I am!!! Every day I speak with people who want their lives to be different. Every day I listen to a long list of excuses of why they can’t have the life they want…………the shortest distance between two points is a straight line……………so why don’t people move in a straight line toward the goal of their dreams……………..they make side trips that take up time and energy. I am just as guilty as anyone else…………….. Well I am done! I am done …I am WAY done!!!!………….. I am getting on with it! I am committed to work harder on myself! Jim Rohn, my mentor once said……….. “Work harder on yourself than you do your job!” I have been sharing that will people in my classes for years. I have never made it my complete mantra………………………until now! “To attract attractive people, you must be attractive. To attract powerful people, you must be powerful. To attract committed people, you must be committed. Instead of going to work on them, you go to work on yourself. If you become, you can attract. We can have more than we’ve got because we can become more than we are. The big challenge ...

The Path to Remarkability

The Paths Untaken- Both the Past and the Future! I have had the privilege of helping two people over the last two weeks really identify their gift and life purpose.  It is an amazing experience to see the transformation, relief and hope that comes from gaining understanding why they feel they are here. Time and time again I see people truly wanting to follow their heart, live out their dreams and live the life I believe they were meant to live.  We settle for so little!  We resign ourselves to having less! One of the women I was working with said it perfectly, “We may as well lie down and die!”  We may not be ‘laying down’ physically………………but we are doing it emotionally and spiritually. Our lives are a journey.  A journey of discovery and learning.  The journey has a beginning, middle and an ending! The path is like climbing a mountain.  It has ups and downs, twist and turns.  For some of us reaching the top is easy, for others it is a struggle, painful and disappointing. Most people would believe reaching the top is the goal.  To them it is the epitimy of success…………more money, bigger houses, more ...
