| | 0 Comments

Why do we hurt? Hurt each other, when we are more alike than different. From Sandy Hook, Charleston, South Carolina, Orlando and Dallas, it seems we as humans are bent on hurt, hurt, hurting each other…simply because of our differences rather than embracing our similarities.

As Heard On...

Profit First

Only a select few speakers deliver performances, instead of simply speeches. Rick Clemons is one of those speakers…ahem, performers. He engages the audience with powerful stories, spot-on lessons, and his wonderfully unique wit. Compare Rick to any Broadway performance, and I would pick Rick Clemons every single time.

Rick Clemons was a great addition to our College Kick-off event as a guest speaker. His keynote presentation (“Make your Quirk Work”) was rated by our student audience members as “very good to excellent.” The material truly resonated with our theme for the year and the day. In his very lively session, Rick gave our students clear tips – and most importantly, actionable suggestions — on how to implement these valuable strategies.
