I love my job for 1 million reasons. Or at least two dozen reasons.… But I rounded up.

One of the absolutely coolest things about being a motivational speaker is that occasionally you get some feedback totally makes your day. What follows is some feedback that made my year.

I worked six months ago for a very cool person in a school district in Wisconsin. They wanted a motivational speaker to prepare their entire staff for the arrival of the students. I think I might have been there one day before the students started school.

I totally remember the event. It was a great audience; I felt good about my presentation.

But check out the email I just got from my meeting planner Laura. It absolutely maybe Tara… Or maybe it was dust in my eyes. I will never tell.

Hi Brad,

Just thought you would want to know….

As I was walking through the elementary school this morning I came uponmotivational speakera third grade teacher putting up smiley faces over each student’s locker. As I got closer, I realized that each smiley face had a quote from you (Brad Montgomery) at the bottom. Along with your quote, each face had a personalized message for every student on it. When I asked the teacher, “What are you doing?” She said that all of the teachers are creating a personalized smiley face for every student to be hung up before the Christmas concert. Following the concert, the parents are to take them home with them. I thought you would want to see that your message is alive and well here in Medford. (See attached pics)

I still have staff coming up to me and saying, “The speaker you brought in was exactly what I needed!” In fact, one second grade teacher made it a point to tell me that your message had changed her outlook on life. She described herself as a complainer (which was true), and after she heard your message she had decided that she was going to turn over a new leaf and stop complaining about everything. She said she has never felt so UN-stressed as she does this year.

Last week I took a bunch of high school teachers to a conference. One of them stated that she so enjoyed your message that she thought I should continue the theme into January’s inservice. That’s when I had this idea (which of course involves you)! Would you be willing to record a short (2-3 minute) video for me to show to the staff, so that they can be reminded of the “The Happy” that you gave them in August? If so, I I think it would be the extra motivation to get them over the COLD winter months.

Thanks again! Wishing you happiness and good health. 330.png
