A passionate and dynamic speaker, audiences find his message inspiring, insightful and provocative. People leave his presentations with strategies and skills they can use immediately.

“Ron Glodoski made me laugh, he made me think, and he inspired me to do better. He genuinely shares a fascinating story that motivates crowds to listen and grow. He is easy to work with, warm-hearted and giving. Very rarely do I meet people so free with their energy and information. Ron’s fun and inspirational spirit makes him an amazing speaker, for both student programs and professionals working with students. I wholeheartedly recommend Ron for schools and conferences, or any organization working with our youth today.

--Benita Whitfield-Shanklin, LCSW, Medical Program Co-Chair

The vast number of schools, which annually hire Ron to work with their students, teachers and parents, reflect the desperate and urgent need to help our nation's youth. Ron provides a fresh, new perspective on how to effectively connect with kids. Every week Ron is reaching thousands of educators and students in schools and detention centers across the country. The endorsements speak for themselves.

The Guardian: The Slow Fade. My Rant.

The Guardian: The Slow Fade. My Rant.: People are all alike. Making the same mistakes over and over, despite what others tell them.

 "You are loved so much. Everyday their those out there who would die to see you out of that depression and happy. Myself included. This cycle is breakable, and you CAN change. If I can get out, so can you."

BOO Belief Overcomes Obstacles

Is it really true? What you think about comes about and your belief will overcome any obstacles. Our success is only based on the limits we set for ourselves. There is a difference between motivation and inspiration! "Don't get motivation confused with inspiration; you are the only one that can motivate you" Sonya Withrow Don't ask for motivation from others. Surround yourself with people who will encourage you and support you. You will then have all the motivation you need to keep moving forward. Then and only then your mental blocks become building blocks one day at a time. They will lift you up when you are down and they will hold your hand through any fearful moment of change and that my friend is what a strong community is all about. YouTube Description from LIFE Leadership Orrin Woodward Video "Cut Your Limiting Beliefs Off at the Roots": In order to lead and be successful in life, we must first free ourselves from the negative thinking that is holding us back. In this video, New York Times bestselling author and LIFE Founder Orrin Woodward discusses the concept that through the course of a lifetime, we develop a negative way of thinking based on the negative events in our lives. These "limiting beliefs" are what we tell ourselves as to why we can't achieve certain goals, or succeed in general. Orrin encourages us to cut these limiting beliefs off at the root and shed them from our way off thinking, so that there is no limit to our success except the ones we set for ourselves.

Networth in Network Marketing

Are you a company hopper and a link poster?
What if your product was people?
You can network and social network all you want. You can join companies again and again, but if your focus is not on investing in people in your down-line, and mentoring with your up-line, then what is the sense of network marketing on-line marketing,or multi-level marketing in any shape, form or definition of it!

What if you focused on investing in the leadership and personal development growth of your network of people?  Your network of people and the relationships you build; determines your net-worth.  The people you associate with bring value into your life.  Your value, your worth is determined by your contributions.  What are you worth? What are relationships worth to you?  Do you add value to other's lives?  Is your purpose more important than the money?
My Definition On-Line Marketing, Network Marketing and  Multi-Level Marketing

What is the opportunity that presents itself for networking?  YOU are the opportunity.  An opportunity is not a company.  I am sure you have heard this before?  People join people not companies!  Your target market are people in your network who desire to be better, believe in better and desire to grow.

People are more important than any product.

They have dreams and goals and need someone to believe in them, encourage them, and provide them with the resources and tools that will help them to overcome objections and identify obstacles that keep them from growing.  The art of promoting, supporting and building relationships.
