We got a chance to speak with Les Brown during Inspiration 2020 in Los Angeles. Les Brown’s words are always solid in meaning,  to the point and profound.

During a very tough point in my life, one of Les Brown’s PBS specials gave me the motivation to start to turn my life around and started me on a course of personal development, that has served me well throughout my life. So I have a special place in my heart for Les.
