I met Mack on Facebook last year in 2014. In fact it's been less than a year, but I knew immediately by some comments he made on a mutual friend's post, that he was a thinking man. I actually remember what the post was about. It involved a very famous person and I won't say the person's name because the mere mention of this celebrity's name polarizes an entire audience. Well anyway, the consensus of the comments in this particular post was that the celebrity was just an arrogant S.O.B.
Then comes a comment from Mack. He spoke to the celebrity's genius and damn near psychoanalyzed the subject in a couple of short precise sentences. It's like he knew or understood the plight of this young person's situation of being blessed by the masses for his genius and cursed by the masses for some of the ways he expressed his genuis. I immediately sent Mack a friend request. Well, it turns out that Mack was a Motivational Speaker and I'm not talking about the shallow kind, this Brother is insightful!!!
Not only is he a Motivational Speaker, he's an Author and the Dean of One of the Most Progressive High Schools in the Chicagoland area. Boy did I hit the jackpot with this facebook friend. I work with a youth group and the organizer of the group is in her early 20's. She has Big Goals and Aspirations and I thought to myself. "How cool would it be to get Speaker Mack D. McGhee to talk to her for just a few minutes on the phone". Well guess what? As busy as he was and is, he did it. And he did it big. The advice he gave myself and this young lady about building an organization will stay with us forever. He certainly has a heart for the Youth.
Ok, ENOUGH of all that, let's chat with Mack about what it takes to Build a Motivational Speaking Brand.

Plus, the BEST in gospel music, news, interviews, updates, how-to's and so much more! I've been suffering from a horrible cough and chest congestion!

in Self Help
Everyone has high hopes of becoming someone important, famous, celebrated and admired. Realizing those hopes and dreams, however, isn’t as simple and quick as it seems. With a lot of challenges and risks along the way, there’s a huge possibility that a person would simply give up. To escape the heartaches and disappointment, anyone would choose to let go of their dreams of running for governor in California or flying to space.
Perhaps, all that’s missing is motivation. Why not take inspiration from the words of John Leslie Brown?
John Leslie Brown is the son of Les Brown, another motivational speaker known the world over and has an Emmy award attached to his name. Although John Leslie took the proverbial torch that he’s supposed to carry, he introduced another way to inspire others. As an artist, he used rap music to introduce his teachings of personal growth and wisdom.

As Jaii likes to say, "Why tip toe through life to arrive safely at death...? Impossible is easy.”
Who is Jaii Starr?
"Well that is a great question. Jaii Starr is me, just finding myself, wanting better for myself and others as well. My true aspiration is happiness and I judge my success by how many others I can get to join me on this new journey of mine, on thinking more positively about life. Making others see how amazing life can actually be. We all choose our own paths, it's up to us to use the beauty that is already all around us to create something even more beautiful. I am all about embracing different, embracing unique, not conforming to what society thinks life should be for me. I have my own definition of normalcy and it's absolutely crazy but, that is okay with me because I am in love with the person who I am becoming. Which is something I am hoping to instill in all of those who follow me. Do not sleep on your dreams, strive for them, because anything and everything is possible. Sure, life can be a constant struggle but, we are all warriors in our own way. Each day you wake up, just know, you have already conquered another day."

Myron Gattison was born on August 10th, 1988 to 17 year old Melinda Gattison at Wilson Hospital in Darlington South Carolina. The father was never present so he shall remain nameless. His life growing up in a single parent home was quite different from most, because although his father was not present in his life his grandparents gave all the support he needed, helping out when his mother lacked. Myron was always larger than most children his age so he quickly took a liking to the game of football. Now 21 years old at Johnson C. Smith Myron became known as Uncle Gatt to his fellow teammates because he took college serious this time and seemed to have so much wisdom for his age. He felt like he had a new lease on life, but on the football field things were not the same. He played 2 seasons at JCSU before he departed from the team. The spring going into his senior year he found out he would no longer be on Scholarship, that was the worse day ever, but little did he know that would change his life. Now that football was all but over for Myron he started to focus more of school and life after football. Myron always had a knack for speaking and was able to deliver messages in a very unique way, style and word play that appeal to his peers but grace and professionalism that any professor would respect. Having a love for people and the youth my started to post original quotes and thoughts on social networks and before he knew it people were inviting him to speak and youth events. He came up with a mentoring program called “REALBOSSGANG” and his small business is called “LEGITLIFE”. Myron has just finished his first of many more books and looks to continue to grow his brand into a nationwide movement.
Pastors usually fall into one of three categories: Godly teachers, motivational speakers or pimps. As you listen, think about those you follow.
Godly Teacher: Strong men or women of faith who teach messages rooted into Bible; unafraid to teach from books like Lamentations and Revelation.
Motivational Speaker: Every speech is a "you can do it" or "money's coming message" with a few Scripture thrown in for good measure.
Pimp: Scares you into giving until it hurts; comes up with their own rules (love offering 2x a month, for example).
Join us as we examine several preachers and breakdown their teaching and behavior.
