Living In The Leap

As you know, I meet a lot of people on the road as motivational speaker – and this is a family I met when I was in Oregon. I think their story will inspire you.


Motivational Speaker Kelly Swanson - called one of North Carolina's funniest women by Our State Magazine. Kelly lifts the spirits of audiences from coast-to-coast using humor, storytelling, and lives of the characters from Prides Hollow - Kelly's make believe small town. This unique approach to motivational speaking allows Kelly to break through communications barriers and connect directly to the audience's imagination.
Her powerful stories and wacky wit will make you laugh, remind you that you matter, show you how to see beyond your obstacles, and teach you how to stand up and stick out in a crowded market.

  1. Wow, Kelly! So very VERY inspiring, right? Their story really makes me stop and ask myself if there are BIGGER dreams that I have deep inside me. Motivational speakers are usually fantastic dreamers – and I've always believed I am – but I'm seriously wondering if my "dream ceiling" is too low. Thanks for sharing this!

  2. This family's experience is truly inspiring.  It was their service that they gave to others that I believe was the most transformative part of their worldwide travels.  If you're not ready or willing to leap quite that far it's important to know that being of service to others can take place right in your own little town.  Thanks for sharing this amazing family Kelly!

  3. Wow! So admire this family for taking the leap. The memories and connections they will share forever are priceless. This motivational speaker was privvy to a local family who did something similiar. I remember quite excitedly turning to brown-eyes when the girls were young and asking, "Should we?" I could already see us white water rafting, climbing the Eifel Tower, visiting the rain forests in Brazil, and so many other outstanding adventures that would create situations and opportunities we'd never experience otherwise!  When he replied, "Absolutely…..NOT!", this contented cow breathed a sigh of relief :-).
