There are few people in life who have the ability to simultaneously challenge you to reach for your full potential, at the same time they honor and cherish the person you are today. That is Terrell Fletcher. It’s like getting a hug and a kick in the tail at the same time! I love that! Somehow while he’s regaling you with all his successes, he reminds his audience that he’s human; telling his vulnerabilities and sharing his struggles so that we can see our own struggles as stepping stones to greatness as opposed to seeing them as reasons to fail. His genuine spirit and energy come through and touch you in ways you can’t verbalize with mere words…it’s how he makes you feel after you hear him speak that leave you wanting more. Hiring Terrell would be the most productive thing you could do this year to help your organization, team, or association achieve new levels of potential.
