For so long, people have been trying to tell your story. They’ve put you in a box. Made you feel less than, and challenged you to live life their way. You may feel frustration, anger, disgust. You’re hungry for success. You’re tired of giving your story away.
Nate Howard is a professional speaker, poet, educator, and social entrepreneur. In May 2013, Nate made the front page of the LA Times for sparking a movement against racial profiling after 79 LAPD officers shut down his event at USC. Realizing someone was attempting to tell his story, he founded Movement BE, a non-profit organization that helps young people discover their story.
In Tell Your Story Before They Do, Nate Howard will help you find the courage to accept yourself for who you are, despite what others may think of you. You will:
- Find the motivation to understand your true story
- Discover your true purpose and passion
- Bet on yourself, finding financial and personal success
- Take a leap of faith to start on the path to a new life
You want to live your true story, so no one can use it against you? Then heed Howard’s call to trust your intuition, listen to your inner voice, and realize what you’re truly called to be.
You get what you think about most, so believe in the greatest version of yourself. No matter your background, social status or age, find your story. Tell your story. Be your story.
