"WHEN THE DREAM IS BIG ENOUGH, THE SACRIFICE DON'T MATTER."
Brian Kizer SR., Be inVINCEable Production
The classroom was the entry point where these two speakers were awarded the opportunity to teach young people to dream bigger than they could possibly achieve. Vincent & Brian were not your traditional conservative teachers. Everything about them were animated, charismatic, and over the top. Their classes were so academically romantic that students began to fall in love with learning. Their teaching style an unconventional method of making the subject matter come alive was so appealing and compelling that students began to take ownership of their learning.
Their influence and presence was so magnetic that students began to seek their counsel and mentorship concerning life application. It was during this time that Vincent and Brian began to flirt with the idea of Speaking Industry. This thought began to grow wings and take flight when Brian and Vincent were entertaining the thought of how to help solve the black on black crisis in Chicago. It was at that critical moment that Brian stated, “When children don’t shoot for their dreams, they shoot each other.” It was that statement that legitimized Be inVINCEable (FOLLOW YOUR DREAM) an motivational speaking organization dedicated to empowering young people to Shatter People’s Perception of What is Possible.
CONNECTING WITH STUDENTS ON AN EMOTIONAL LEVEL
Vincent and Brian are dedicated to teaching all audiences:
1. Listen to what bugs you. It is a message that will help the masses.
2. Don’t let long-term dreams go ignored. Find out what they mean.
3. Failure is never possible unless it’s considered
4. Who you see in your imagination will always rule the world.
5. Think like there is no box.
