John Harricharan, Award-winning Author of the bestseller When You Can Walk on Water, Take the Boat | creator of the ground-breaking “PowerPause – 3 Minutes, 3 Steps to Personal Success and Real Happiness”

Easy To See The Inspirational Message. Every seven years or so, I put together one of my infrequent seminars where people from all over the world come to attend. Among the audience one can find physicians, psychiatrists, attorneys, authors, accountants and people from many different walks of life. Because these events are private and because the cost to attend is relatively high, I carefully choose the speakers who would be presenters. Among the speakers chosen for my last seminar was Josh Hinds, author, motivator and inspirational speaker. Josh is a special personality whose very presence brings joy, peace and light to an audience of a few or many. After his presentation, the audience broke into loud applause

Michael Angier, Founder and President |

One of the First People I Think of in the Success and Motivation Business. I have known Josh Hinds for many years. And he is one of the first people I think of in the success and motivation business as a shining example of authenticity and caring. There is never a doubt about Josh delivering on his promises. I recommend you listen to what he has to say and follow his advice. You cannot go wrong.

Gilbert Melott, Founder & Leader | Nextvoice247

You have a command of presence, a business acumen that makes it high-level enough for the more savvy business person yet understandable for the new business owner. It was both a pleasure meeting you and a privilege to hear you at the Extreme Business Makeovers event (XBM). You have a command of presence, a business acumen that makes it high-level enough for the more savvy business person yet understandable for the new business owner. Your presence and demeanor charmed the audience and engaged them even more to listen and want to learn from you. I know that many people rated you as one of the highlights of the event, myself included.

Kelly Ferrara, Principal | StratCommRx

Your message was memorable even months later. Josh, thank you for taking the stage at the seminar in Chicago this past October. Your personal story and your professional story were blended together in such a way that made your content memorable months later. The inspiration of connecting to people on a human level with the candor and empathy that 1-1 conversations can bring, even when that conversation exists because of work or online, was powerful. I admire your perseverance and dedication toward realizing your dream and making an impact in the world around you. Thanks for sharing part of your world with those of us at that meeting.

Dixie Gillaspie, Coach/Consultant, President | Pure Synchrony

Josh Hinds may talk about the adversity of pursuing a career in sales and public speaking while struggling with the symptoms of Tourettes, but in reality there are few speakers who are so articulate or impassioned about the power and possibilities that lie within us all. He believes in the ability of the human spirit to triumph over any difficulty, not because he has done it, but because he knows beyond a doubt that we all can. Josh transfers that belief to his audience, giving us no excuse for excuses but encouraging us in such a kind an gentle manner that we are uplifted rather than intimidated. You leave with your intent fully focused on your outcome and your determination to achieve doubled or even tripled by the experience.

Dr. Mollie Marti, Founder, | Twelve Factors of Success in Action

Solid Tools for Success in Business and Life. Josh Hinds was a featured speaker in my Twelve Factors of Success in Action teleseries. His insights on confidence and overcoming adversity were profound. The specific tips he provided to find a way around challenges were simple, practical, and easy to follow. Josh has a core philosophy of helping others as the best path to success came shining through in everything he shared. I highly recommend Josh as an inspirational speaker who genuinely and generously shares solid tools for success in business and life.

Nona Bridges, Chairperson | Gadsden Chapter IAAP

He provided a fun professional development opportunity. For Administrative Professionals Day 2011, our local chapter of International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP) group invited Josh Hinds to be our guest speaker. Josh captivated his audience by sharing his life experiences in a very genuine, personal way on how obstacles will ultimately come in pursuing those goals, but how each one can be overcome. He kept lively interaction with the audience by Q & A. Josh was a great encourager and motivator to pursue our dreams and showed us, by his life example, that they are possible. He provided a fun professional development opportunity.

Trina Hoefling, GroupONE Solutions, LLC | Event

Authentic and Genuine. I have known Josh virtually for years and have always known him to be a generous and practical professional. I had the pleasure of seeing Josh speak earlier this year, and his presentation was certainly the most authentic of the conference, and perhaps one of the most genuine I have experienced. He engaged completely with the audience and made sure we were with him. I liked feeling I was in a stimulating, private conversation with him. I have since asked his advice and feedback, and his genuine generosity and commitment to me, his customer, is admirable. And appreciated.

Bob Burg, Public Speaker and Author | “Endless Referrals”, “Winning Without Intimidation”, and Co-Author of “The Go-Giver”

Josh Hinds is becoming, in my opinion, the Earl Nightingale of the e-world. Not only is the man pure motivation but, like the late, great Mr. Nightingale, knows how to attract other motivators to join him in his mission as well. Go to his site, bookmark it, return often, learn from it and, most of all, benefit from it.
