TEDxNASA - Willie Jolley - Turning Setbacks Into Comebacks

It only takes a minute to change your life. That's the title of Willie Jolley's first book and his mantra. This singer, motivational speaker and author uses his unique blend of music and message to move people to believe they can achieve. In 1990, D.C. Public Schools asked Jolley 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 Plus, Jolley works with organizations that want to rapidly accelerate growth and create top achievers. About TEDx, x = independently organized eventIn 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)
