“Surround yourself with the dreamers and the doers, the believers and thinkers, but most of all, surround yourself with those who see the greatness within you, even when you don't see it yourself” ~ Edmund Lee

"JB Braden is a powerful speaker. I had the good luck to hear him speak in a couple of different venues. I tease him that just hearing him say “good morning” is inspiring. His essence comes through with integrity and is a powerful invitation for each person in the audience to look within their hearts and pull out that THING that brings them fully alive. His story is raw and touches each heart. Forgive and move into your life fully, with passion. If you are looking for a speaker who is powerful, funny and inspirational, JB is a fantastic choice for you & your organization."

"In reference to your presentation on Tuesday evening... I found it complete as you hit all the points right on. No holds barred...just 'like it is'. Beautifully presented. My take away - You helped me to value my years of quest, to honor all my research and to appreciate its knowledge gained. I now feel confident to reveal what others may not yet fully grasp. Yet as its messenger it is again my responsibility to 'say' it. And I am. Thank you, JB. You have a gift. I look forward to helping you see its full depth and witness your wings unfold as you fully come to that realization as well."
~ Joyce Leake, Author of THE C.O.D.E
"I was fortunate enough to hear JB talk at an event. This was an event where I personally knew several of the speakers and to be quite honest, I thought they would all be good. What I didn’t expect was for them to be GREAT! JB’s talk brought tears to my eyes and evoked several emotions from deep inside that I didn’t realize were down there. He is an amazing speaker and an even more amazing human being. I want to hear him talk every chance I get!"
~ Stan Shields, Stan N. Shields, LLC, Small Business Coach and Speaker www.stannshields.com
"I recently took my two teenage boys to hear JB Braden speak at a luncheon. I had heard him a few weeks prior to that and was so impressed that I wanted my sons to hear his message. His inspiration triggered my oldest son to schedule a coaching session with JB. We are all looking forward to it. Whether you are seeking a coach or an inspirational speaker for a group, I wholeheartedly suggest you reach out to JB Braden."
~ Bill Diemert, Planet of Water
“I have seen a lot of speakers in my time. Many of them are really good but what they are missing from being great is Passion, Heart and Great content. JB Braden is one of those few that isn’t good, but GREAT! If you need a great speaker, training or coach, JB is your man.”
~ Pete Vargas, Owner-Speaker Pay Day and Advance Your Reach www.advanceyourreach.com
"J.B. is a confident speaker who has the approach and strategy to break down challenging situations. Depending on his audience I have seen him effortlessly transition to use the voice of an old friend, a peer, a big brother, a teacher, a mentor, or a coach. It is J.B.’s grounded wisdom and Southern charm that make his talks light up with a personable approach."
~ Poet Ali, Music Artist/Producer, Speaker
"I recently attended the Mindset of a Champion seminar conducted by Mr. Braden. I was impressed by his passion. Unlike some speakers, you know he has lived the journey so his footsteps are credible! I would recommend him to anyone looking to reset their goals or who just simply need a reminder of doing what's important."

~ Nichole Johnston, Massage Therapist, Kairos Healing Massage LLC
"JB, I just want to say thank you! A long, long time ago you helped me remember what motivation and inspiration could do in my life. You told me about an opportunity which lead to another that has blossomed so much in 9 years! I could not have imagined on the sales floor in Lancome that I would be a CFO before I turned 40. I will always be grateful to you for believing in me when I was having a hard time seeing a path for my future."
~ Alisha Weldon, Chief Financial Officer, LSINC

"I have had the privilege to listen and watch JB transform audiences from passive interest to engaged and inspired, empowering them to become Champions of their own lives and to recognize their inner greatness. My first introduction to JB was through the Rachel’s Challenge program. He worked with our students and teachers to embrace the challenges of the program in order to create a school culture that fosters kindness and compassion. The impact of the message combined with JB’s passion and engaging presentation skills has helped transform our schools into a safe and caring environment for students where they can thrive and succeed. JB is a kind, genuine person that has a gift to share with those interested in realizing their full potential by tapping into their inner strengths to overcome obstacles and refocus their lives."
~ Judy Saylor, Director of Program Growth and Innovation, Take Stock in Children View LinkedIn Profile
“Just today JB surprised me with a phone call to check in and see how I am doing. Coaching is not some pretentious interaction with someone who has an agenda for you. It is an easy conversation with someone who will be a listening ear, a wise guide, and a breathe of encouragement for wherever you are at in your path!”
~ Emily Owens, Configuration Management Specialist, CSSA
"I have heard JB speak on three occasions over the last three months and here’s what I know about him:
• His passion for making a difference in people’s lives is so real.
• He motivates, inspires all ages. If I had children who lack direction, motivation, have issues about who they are or why or what are their purposes, their true identity I would beg parents to check out JB.
• On my 75th birthday this year I attended a two-hour workshop on How to Develop the Mindset of a champion. Now I have been to many similar type presentations over my journey, but I found something magical and different about JB’s approach.
• It doesn’t matter the age of his audiences, he connects with them and gets their attention and motivates them to a higher level.
• Most great coaches often time have ego challenges because of their successes, I don’t see that with JB, he shows up with a servant’s heart and gives his God given gifts to who he is coaching or speaking to.
• Because of his background with youth sports he really connects with youth coaches, youth who play all different kinds of sports, students in school, students who seem to have lost their way, parents who are frustrated that they can’t connect with their children."
