From Chicken Soup for the African American Soul

Who Is Lisa Nichols?

Lisa Nichols is a dynamic motivational speaker and advocate of personal empowerment. She is the founder and president of Motivating the Masses, Inc., which provides transformational workshops for adults, and the founder and CEO of Motivating the Teen Spirit, LLC which is recognized by many as the most comprehensive program available today for teen self-development. Motivating the Teen Spirit has impacted the lives of over 35,000 teens, prevented over 850 suicides, reunited thousands of teens with their parents, and influenced more than 575 teen dropouts to return to school. The program provides services to the educational system, leadership programs, juvenile justice system and youth serving agencies.

Lisa is also a motivational speaker, delivering powerful and thought-provoking seminars to standing-room-only audiences of empowered women, entrepreneurs, investors, parents, educators, juvenile justice employees and adult youth advocates. Her no-holds-barred messages include powerful energy, personal testimonies and eye-opening interactive processes. She is known not to leave a dry eye in the house as she moves the audience towards giving themselves permission to be completely comfortable with who they are. Her personal coaching to CEOs, entrepreneurs, investors, principals, pastors and parents helps get people clear on their vision, their roadblocks, their power and their possibilities.

For her work and dedication, Lisa has received the 2003 Trail Blazers Entrepreneurs award, LEGOLAND Heart of Learning award, and the Emotional Literacy award. November 20th was proclaimed by the Mayor of Henderson, Nevada as Motivating the Teen Spirit Day. Lisa was born and raised in Los Angeles and loves to dance, swim, skate, play laser tag and read. She and her son, Jelani, live in Southern California.
