These are no doubt uncertain times. Businesses are shuttered, people are scared, and the anxiety level is high. That’s why I’m so excited about this week’s guest—someone I believe can comfort us, encourage us, and guide us through this challenge.
There are motivational speakers, and then there is Dr. Willie Jolley. He’s an award-winning speaker, bestselling author, and media personality who uses his public platform to pursue his mission of empowering and encouraging people to rise above their circumstances and maximize their G-d-given potential. Many know him as the speaker that Ford Motors called on when they were on the brink of bankruptcy; his work helped Ford reject the government bailout and go on to $1 billion in profit.
In our interview, Dr. Willie Jolley tells the story of how he went from becoming a fired singer to reading a motivational book that led him to pursue his passion. He also teaches us timeless principles for how to use setback as a set up for a comeback.
I hope you listen to our conversation and it gives you the strength and encouragement to keep going despite whatever obstacles you face. As always, I would love to hear what you think. Listen and enjoy!
