Just Lean Into It Once you identify your passion, you don’t need to overhaul your life completely and all at once.

However, despite formal education and exposure to practical training a lot of professionals/workers are still found wanting in the area of delivering high-quality services and productivity.

The label and the stigma stayed with Les damaging his selfesteem to such an extent that it took several years to overcome.

Les Brown As a renowned public 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. It is a message Les Brown has learned from his own life and one he is helping others apply to their lives. Born a twin in low-income Liberty City in Miami, Florida, Les and his twin brother, Wes, were adopted when they were six weeks old by Mrs. Mamie Brown, a single woman who had very little education and financial means, but a very big 19|Life Brightener|March, 2014

Unending Self-Education Les has had no formal education past high school, but with persistence and determination he has initiated and continued a process of unending self-education which has distinguished him as an authority on human potential. Les Brown's passion to learn and his hunger to realize greatness in himself and others helped him to achieve greatness. He rose from a hip-talkin morning DJ to broadcast manager; from community activist to community leader; from political commentator to 3-term legislator; and from a banquet and nightclub emcee to premier keynote speaker. In 1986, Les entered the public speaking arena on a full-time basis and formed his own company, Les Brown Unlimited, Inc. The company provides motivational tapes and materials, workshops, and personal/professional development

Award Winning Speaker In 1989, Les Brown was the recipient of the National Speakers Association's highest honor: The Council of Peers Award of Excellence. In addition, he was selected one of America's Top Five Speakers for 1992 by Toastmasters international. In 1990, Les recorded his first in a series of speech presentations entitled "You Deserve" with Les Brown, was awarded a Chicagoarea Emmy and became the leading fund-raising program of its kind for pledges to PBS stations nationwide.

Q & A Corner

Question: I have some ideas I believe I can turn into a great business but, you know, I just don’t know how to bring myself into working on them. Besides I hold down a 9-5 full-time job.

Answer: First, make a list of your wonderful ideas. Strike off those you think aren’t compelling enough; it is better you utilize your resources on those ideas that bring measurable results in record time. Then spend a few days to flesh out your remaining ideas based on their order of priority, cost and time for execution and tangible short-term outcomes. If a business idea is not viable from the onset, it is likely going to be a source of distraction, since you need to set apart some amount of time from you regular job to run it.
