Sports programs are always one of my favorite locations to present my story too. It's definitely a market i'm doing a lot more of recently. I have a really big event coming up in the future that i'll be blogging about. This time it was a little unique in that the program was a rugby club, not a college or professional sports team. There was a specific purpose behind my trip to speak with the Danville Oaks, as I was briefed in pre-event phone calls. One of the nice things about this event, it was about 3 hours from home which meant I could drive over to present.
It's this type of speech that is the reason I try to tell people, it's not a drug talk. There is so many character and life lessons built into my life story that the focal points are spread out across many different subjects. My life took a turn for the worse due to drugs, yes. I am considered a substance abuse speaker, yes. However, I also consider myself a motivational speaker in that my story doesn't have to focus on "drugs". Tonights focus was an emphasis on weed and where it can lead folks like these young student athletes. All of the parents and athletes were extremely engaged, it made me grateful to be apart of their program for the night. I would like to thank the entire Danville Oaks Club for bringing me in to present, I had an amazing time. THANK YOU!
