Founder of Cloudboy Consulting, L.L.C., Chance Rush is sought out nationally for speaking engagements, workshops, comedy shows and as a life coach among other specialties. The core of his work is about helping Native people reach inside themselves to accomplish great things personally and for the community. It begins with taking care of the self. Growing up in Pawhuska, Rush (Three Affiliated Tribes-Hidatsa/Dakota/Arapaho/Otoe/Oneida) is a Tulsa resident.
After earning his degree from Oklahoma Baptist University, Rush took the usual routes to support his family, but he always wanted to be a motivator and consultant. Soon he was asked to visit schools, churches and various conferences and communities to promote healthy living and advocate for unity in family and communities. Rush tours the country giving motivational speeches, primarily to Native American youth groups, "hoping that I can make a difference in someone's life". He grew up surrounded by racism, alcoholism, poverty and despair and in his travels he hopes to deliver a message that will help youth overcome these problems and others as they strive to become the future leaders in Native communities. "My heart is in working with kids", he said.
