Prior to deciding to become a full time transformational speaker, Leon battled depression from his mother abandoning him at an early age. It took Leon five years to graduate high school due to the unsettled depression. Leon traveled off to college at Delaware State University where he then suffered depression from unplanned parenthood. This later caused homeless circumstances that lasted for months. After becoming dissatisfied with his lifestyle, Leon became addicted to inspirational videos by the doctor we all know as, Eric Thomas. Leon watched Eric Thomas videos daily to give himself a push while transitioning from stuck to unstuck. Although Leon used Eric’s videos for inspirational use only, he unconsciously trained himself to become an inspiring public speaker by listening and studying Eric Thomas religiously. Leon soon got the chance to not only meet Eric Thomas, but interviewed Eric at a Philadelphia conference in December of 2016. Eric left Leon with these words, “You are you’re biggest solution.” Eric Thomas later became Leon’s public speaking mentor.
Leon produced his first independent public speaking conference in early January 2017, appropriately titled “UNSTUCK” where he led the way as the keynote speaker. The sold out “Unstuck” conference was held at Washington DC’s MGM & National Harbor. Leon left his audience with tears of joy and gained major acknowledgment from a few of his biggest guest, actor Gil Nelson & Thandor Miller of DC TRUST.
