John Alan Powell

Can positivity come any stronger than this man? It’s debatable. The author of “My Journey. My Truth.: A Story of Hope, Courage and Transformation,” John Alan Powell takes a seat on Conversations, and brings his story to life through a gripping tale of narrative changing, the power of ‘you’ and forgiveness. He regales us with the following …

  • The slogan of Regina, Saskatchewan – [“It’s the city that rhymes with fun.”]
  • The correlation of bad attitudes and results – [“(People) don’t want that to infect them.”]
  • His theory on why you need to ‘move before you’re ready’ – [“(Perfection) is the excuse we use to validate our own inaction.”]
  • His future plans of course building – [“Do it like an online university.”]

His challenge to all of us: — “Let your passion give you a transcendent purpose to help you define who you are in your path in life – instead of having the world define it for you.” Check out today’s show.

He can be reached at the following destinations:

John’s Book — My Journey. My Truth.
John’s Website Page — John Alan Powell
John’s Twitter Page — @JohnAlanPowell
John’s Facebook Page — John Alan Powell

Many thanks to John for his brand of positivity. Now – give him some love … and let’s keep the conversation going!
