Jolley's first book and his mantra. This singer, motivational speaker and

to join the Drug Prevention division as project coordinator to develop
a program using art and music to encourage youth to seek positive
alternatives to drugs and violence. The program, called "Positive Images,"
became an overnight success, winning awards from the Department of
Education and Blue Cross/Blue Shield. Now president of InspirTainment

growth and create top achievers.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
