NOTE FROM LIFE COACH MARY:
I first learned of Les Brown when I was associated with TPN back in 1993. TPN was a personal development TV network and Les Brown was one of the favorites. I had the opportunity to share the stage with Les Brown and his then girlfriend Gladys Knight. Fortunately, for me, I was first. He is a tough act to follow. Years later, there was a special conference in Atlanta and several of us found ourselves speaking with him in his hotel room. Time to go find that photo of he and I. Les’ commanding presence, never ending energy, enthusiasm and sense of humor is engaging. He speaks from his experience of being born into a low-income family, and making it on his own. While his message is simple, it will penetrate your soul and inspire you.
In August, I was fortunate enough to run into Les Brown at the National Speakers Association conference in San Diego. I immediately ran up and gave him a big hug! I was thrilled when he accepted my invitation to be a guest on Conversations with the Masters. His response was, “I’d love to!” I can’t think of a better man to kick off our 2008!! Let’s give him one of his best audiences ever. Please join me on Monday, January 14th at 12 Noon Pacific time.

• How to get motivated, especially when you’re not.
• Secrets of becoming a fabulous speaker and presenter.
• How to bring out the millionaire in you.

As a renowned professional speaker, author and television personality, Les Brown has risen to national prominence by delivering a high energy message which tells people how to shake off mediocrity and live up to their greatness.

Mrs. Brown was a single woman who had very little education or financial means, but a very big heart. As a child Les' inattention to school work, his restless energy, and the failure of his teachers to recognize his true potential resulted in him being mislabeled as a slow learner. The label and the stigma stayed with him, damaging self-esteem to such an extent that it took several years to overcome.
