Motivation: How to Achieve the Unthinkable

Word Cloud "Motivation"A recent Gallup poll found that 70 percent of U.S. professionals labeled themselves as "not engaged" or "actively disengaged" at work, costing the economy an estimated $550 billion per year in lost productivity. Even more troubling is that workplace engagement levels have hardly budged since Gallup began measuring them

John Nemo's Speaking Style + Approach

Nemo Headshot 2My Style

I use what I call "info-tainment" (information + entertainment) to help people turn their passion into a paycheck!

I utilize my passion, personality and unique forms of storytelling to inform, engage and inspire others to transform their true calling into a sustainable income or career path.

I deliver:

  • Messages that motivate.
  • Stories that inspire.
  • Content that captures your heart.
  • Practical, actionable takeaways that anyone can implement immediately.

How it Works

Fire fistI want to go beyond simple tips and techniques on how to be more efficient or how to write a good cover letter. Rather, I’m after your HEART, the very reason you were put on this planet! I’m all about inspiring you to really understand that not only CAN you achieve your deepest dreams, but that you also MUST in order to really have a happy, satisfied life and career.

Using my personal story, outgoing personality and creative, compelling storytelling and speaking, I am going to tap into your heart’s deepest desires and show you that making your dreams come true isn’t just necessary for you, but for the rest of us as well!

What Makes Me Different?

I'd say its my level of honesty, vulnerability and transparency when it comes to sharing my own story, along with my creativity in terms of the content I create – written, audio, video and visual -  and how I use all of it to keep an audience engaged and energized.

Who I Want To Speak To

bored and tired woman behid the tableAnyone who is bored, uninspired or unhappy with his or her life and/or career. People who are just going through the motions, working for a paycheck, secretly dying on the inside because they aren’t passionate about their life and their work. Or people who have unexpectedly been forced into a career transition - laid off, let go or left out.
