Motivational Speaker and Author
I began blogging on Feb. 19, 2009. Short Stories with a Point grew out of
motivational speeches I was delivering in Toastmasters and the more I wrote,
the more I discovered about myself. The more I shared, the more readers
shared with me. It's my way of putting positivity back out into the universe. I
encourage you to subscribe and pass on the stories that move you.
30 second video introduction. This "greatest hits" compilation of
autobiographical parables includes 78 stories centered on Values, Giving,
Motivation, Taking Chances, Positive Attitude and Love. There's a special
chapter called "Fundraising" which recounts my first marathon experience. I ran
in solidarity with my brother Jeff, who is battling Multiple Myeloma.
All proceeds from this book in 2012 will be donated to the Multiple
Myeloma Research Foundation, developing the treatments that are saving
my brother's life and making a difference for cancer patients around the world.
"My brother David's stories transport you back to moments of truth in your
life, and remind you of lessons relevant to your life today. He has inspired me
in my battle against cancer, and helped give me a new
sense of purpose. This book will have a positive impact
on anyone searching for meaning in their lives." -Jeff Goad
I share motivational messages with people looking for change in their lives,
using storytelling to inspire and entertain. I tailor speeches to non-profit
groups on the following themes:
What's Your Point? (how purpose drives success)
Finding Your Fit (how marketing principles apply to job search)
The Value of Volunteering (validate and motivate your volunteers)
