Les Brown was introduced to personal development and positive thinking at age 10 when he worked part time cleaning the office of a man named Mr. Sidarsky, who listened to the likes of Norman Vincent Peale, Earl Nightingale, and Ernest Holmes. Les loved to eavesdrop on the messages of hope and abundance.
In spite of being labeled “the dumb twin” and “intellectually disabled” in grade school, Les used the consistent messages of “innate greatness in all of us” to become one of the most beloved motivational speakers of all time.
Les is the bestselling author of several books, including “You’ve Got to Be Hungry,” and his audio series “Choosing Your Future” is widely acclaimed for inspiring millions of people around the world. In 1990, Les recorded the Emmy Award-winning series of speeches entitled “You Deserve,” which became the lead fundraising program of its kind for pledges to PBS stations nationwide.
As a world-renowned motivational speaker, Les has received the National Speakers Association's highest award: the Council of Peers Award for Excellence, as well as the prestigious Golden Gavel Award from Toastmasters International. During this interview with Richard Brooke, Les will share some of his most potent stories and wisdom so you can see that, yes, IT’S POSSIBLE!
