I’m Really Proud of This

As I begin to prepare for new and exciting opportunities coming in 2016, I get overwhelmed with gratefulness and excitement.

The past five years have been truly amazing.

I always remind you that I have had some tremendous trials (I’ll share them in  my next book), but I have been tremendously blessed. I don’t take a single blessing for granted.
One of the best parts about this journey is my ability to help others simply by sharing words of encouragement. Words and feelings I know because of my challenges. So I’m thankful for my challenges!

I just pray for more opportunities to spread the S.O. What! message of overcoming obstacles and eliminating excuses.

I hope you’ll help me to let others know about my story and how excited I am to share it.

And, most importantly, it helps those who hear it!

Check out my new media kit, and I will be ever so appreciative if you’d share it too!

Have a great week!



I’m Summer Owens, and my passion is helping youth and young adults realize success no matter what obstacles they face. As an international resilience and leadership keynote speaker, author, S.O. What! Success Coach, and creator of the S.O. What! Literacy, Life Skills, and Character Education curriculum, I empower people to say, “So what!” to even their greatest challenges.  provide a framework to help people see past their challenges and focus on solutions using the S.O. What! Success System (Overcome Obstacles + Eliminate Excuses + Calculate Choices = S.O. What! Success). Through keynotes, workshops, books, online courses, and workbooks, I use life’s challenges and my own story of resilience as a rape survivor and teen mom success story to help others confidently pursue their dreams.

Looking for an inspiring college motivational speaker? A high school literacy curriculum? A middle school life skills workbook? A great example for teen mothers? A women’s empowerment or single mother’s conference speaker?  I’m your girl and will help any audience say, “S.O. What!”.
