The Life of a Teen Motivational Speaker

Here is a video I did for a three day travel schedule.  Not too bad, but it gives you an idea of what Motivational Speakers and Teen Motivational Speakers go through to get to our engagements.

I’ve been doing this for 20 years, and every Teen Leadership Conference, High School Assembly, or Middle School Assembly seems like a speaker shows up and speaks and leaves.  There is so much more to it than just showing up.  I’m not complaining because I absolutely love what I do, but sometimes the travel can wear you out.

This morning, I am fooling around not he computer and slowly packing to head to Vancouver, British Columbia.  I have to fly from Boston to Phoenix, connect to another flight, and fly to Vancouver.  I will arrive almost 3 am Boston time.  My flight leaves at 4 pm.  So, I start my day at 1pm and head to the airport.  Fifteen hours later, I will arrive Vancouver.  Then, I have to do this all over again coming back home.

I knew getting into the professional of motivational speaking that if I were to make a living out of speaking I would have to travel every day.  This is what I do and to be considered the top teen motivational speaker in the world just means that I have a lot of air miles and I travel first class.  Life is good!
