Harold Reed, Jr.

hr-jr-enterprises.comBorn and raised in East Orange, New Jersey, Harold attended Rutgers University before leaving school to enlist in the United States Air Force where he proudly served as a Medical Services Specialist during the Persian Gulf War. In 2000, Harold continued to serve, this time in law enforcement. 

In 2006, after encouraging his wife Taria to start her own successful photography business, Harold was inspired to share his motivation with the world. Becoming a public speaker & author, he created his company – HRJR Enterprises, and self-published his first book, “Find A Way to Make A Way – You’re Either Part of the Solution or Part of the Problem!” The success of his book attracted major publishing interest. Tate Publishing & Enterprises signed Harold and released the 2nd edition of “Find a Way to Make a Way”- now available at major retailers including Barnes &, Borders and Amazon! 

Today Harold is a Certified Professional Life Coach, renowned speaker and frequent media guest on such national programs including the “Claudia Jordan Show” and Jamie Foxx’s Foxxhole Radio on Sirius/XM. 

Harold is quick to warn people that he is not your typical motivational speaker. His messages are powerful and sometimes painfully honest. He teaches that the solutions to life's problems can be found within the individual; however, if one will not face his flaws, he will not fight his flaws; and if he will not fight his flaws, he will never be free of them. 

Harold believes that life is about service and in that in order to receive God’s blessings we must first become blessings ourselves. He’ll teach you to become that blessing!

Ken Brown

KenBrownInternational.comInternationally renowned motivational speaker Les Brown calls Ken "a messenger of hope" whose example may encourage others experiencing difficult life circumstances! 

Given his humble beginnings, few would have predicted that Ken Brown would become a tremendously successful businessman as one of the youngest African-American owners of a McDonald’s franchise and later a renowned speaker and author of bestsellers including “A Leap of Faith” and “Life Through the Arches.” 

Ken had every excuse to choose a life of failure. At the age of 13 and 14, Ken’s parents brought their first child into the world; by 17 and 18, they were mother and father to five children. In spite of poverty and a trail of 10 evictions, Ken’s parents still emphasized the importance of education and a strong work ethic.

Ken’s favorite mantra, “Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you respond to it,” epitomizes his modern-day rags-to-riches story, which has inspired and motivated others to live out their dreams.

Featured recently on ABC's “Wife Swap,” Ken Brown continues to inspire thousands as life coach, business advisor, professional speaker and author. He helps small businesses nurture leadership from within and take “A Leap of Faith” to build sustainable, profitable enterprises and recognize and leverage opportunities.
