Target Audience: Caleb serves 2 types of people:
- Kids who want to do something but don’t think they can because of their age.
- Adults who have lost passion for life – or want to uncover something they are passionate about.
14 year old Caleb had a simple desire at age 12 when he expressed to his dad that he wanted to write a book. Before he knew it, he started typing up his inspiration and within a month had a completed book called Keys to Success for Kids that published on Amazon. It is now recognized across America.
Soon, his company called “Kids for Success” was born where so many kids are impacted every day. He now also does a lot of speaking inspiring youth to go for their drams.
On Coming from a Place of Passion
You can have as much passion as you want but unless you factor in all the things you need to run the business growth cannot take place. Here are some of the necessary elements needed to run a successful business according to Caleb:
- Ability to communicate
- Ability to Lead
- If you don’t know how to work the engine, you can’t ever fly!
The #1 Mistake People Make with Speaking
They forget WHY they are doing it. People sometimes get caught up in how they can impress rather than coming from a place of SERVICE. Having jitters are a healthy! It means you CARE and want to help as many people as possible.
What are you most proud of?
Caleb doesn’t care about amount of views he gets. His goal is to IMPACT and inspire in order to change the lives of people. Adding value to their lives is how you go really deep as a leader who serves.
Practical and Actionable:
Share what makes you UNIQUE. Play on your own thing. Find your ADVANTAGE. Everyone has something of that sort! Take the ten best customers you have and ask yourself how you can exceed expectations. This creates more customers.

How is your business going…would you like to talk about it?
I love my audience of listeners. I really do. I would love to help you in some way. I started doing calls with listeners and realized that it was a great way to understand you.
Ok, then I formalized the process to offer a Results Roadmap…it is a private one-on-one call with me about your business. I want to help you see your roadmap with more clarity and confidence. Find out more about the Results Roadmap (it takes you to my personal website). This is not a sales pitch. Let me serve you.
