Did you get a chance to read my blog about my two-week birthday trip to Gatlinburg and my journey home?
If you didn’t, here is the blog link and the interview link is at the bottom of this message:
In the blog, you’ll see how I had a chance encounter with someone that led to a national interview on Sirius/XM ch 131. It was a beautiful opportunity to talk to an amazing man, Jim Wood, who is the founder and executive director of Wears Valley Ranch which is home for many children from challenged households. It was amazing visiting the ranch and seeing the caring adults and amazing children there.
Here’s the interview that aired on June 12th. Hope you enjoy!
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!”.
