How to Get the Breakthroughs You Need

Kid’s dream-like rivers flow. Why did we lose that? Because well-meaning people trained the dream out of us. Direct Sellers, Entrepreneurs, or anyone with a big dream, listen up! Whether you want to scale your business, inspire your team or quit your day job, this presentation is for you! What would you say to a young kid who dreamed of making people laugh for a living but wasn’t funny?

  • – In 1992 Darren LaCroix, bombed miserably in a comedy club in Boston, MA. As he walked off stage, the headliner that night said, “Don’t quit your day job.”
  • – Without a funny bone in his body and a willingness to fail, Darren pursued his childhood dream of making people laugh.
  • – Nine years later, he out-spoke 25,000 contestants from 14 countries and was crowned the 2001 World Champion of Public Speaking with a very funny speech. Not only that, but people are talking about his “unforgettable” speech two decades later!

How did he do it? What was his strategy? 17 Minutes to Your Dream.

  • A bigger belief in what is possible
  • Action steps to create new habits


Do you want to give a presentation? Or actually be heard?

Anyone can stand up and give a presentation, but how do you stand out from other presenters? How can you create a presentation that is truly unforgettable? If people don’t remember your message 3 months, or even 3 days later, you may have wasted both your time and theirs.
