USA Motivation Needed

Time to Fire Up the Troops

Gas prices are up. Food prices are up. Morale is down. As Americans worry about what the future might bring, how are our mindsets? Do we have the strength of will for promising times ahead or will we choose to ride the roller coaster? Kevin Elko insists that positive energy will cure most ills if we let it do the work.

When you talk to someone you don't know, do you give him or her words of encouragement or do you let your stress and strain have repercussions? After hanging up the phone, is the person on the other end feeling more positive or less positive about their day? America needs a pep talk and it needs to start with every single American. Kevin Elko is available to talk to your listeners about letting their character influence other Americans into encouraging Uncle Sam to smile.

Uncle Sam Sad.jpgThe nation's morale is at what many consider to be an all-time low. The economy is in a recession that is driving millions of Americans into states of depression - about a possible depression around the corner. They are getting hit from all sides. The price of gasoline and food are soaring - even the price of rice! The equity in their homes is falling. The cost of health care is skyrocketing. They are getting laid off. It's ugly out there and most of today's politicians seem to have no true solutions. Americans are confused and don't know where to turn for answers.

Elko, who has a Ph.D. in Education with an emphasis on Sports Counseling, knows his stuff. He delivers a solid message that Americans desperately need to hear.

Kevin is called in to motivate athletes and business leaders to compete at their peak performance - nothing less is acceptable. His past and present professional and big-time college football team clients include the Dallas Cowboys, Pittsburgh Steelers, Cleveland Browns, Buffalo Bills, LSU Tigers, Alabama Crimson Tide, Nebraska Cornhuskers and Miami Hurricanes.

Elko has a collection of Super Bowl championship rings and national championship college football rings that attest to how effective his pep talks are. In 2008, he added a Final Four ring to his collection.

Fortune 500 companies also invite Elko to address their people; again to perform at their peak levels. These companies want results and Elko delivers. No wonder they keep requesting that he come back, again and again. He is a regular speaker for such companies as Travelers, Smith Barney, Merrill Lynch and Tyson Foods.

Kevin Elko is the author of the life-changing book, THE PEP TALK, co-authored with New York Times bestselling author, Robert L. Shook (Thomas Nelson, Inc., April 29, 2008 release).

Your audience will want you to have Kevin back as a repeat guest, too. But to do that, you need to book him the first time. The ball's in your court!

ABOUT THE BOOK . . .
THE PEP TALK: A Football Story about the Business of Winning
By Kevin Elko and Robert L. Shook

The Pep Talk is a sports story - with solid business applications - about an underdog football team defeating a formidable opponent. Typically, a novelette of this type peaks at the end of the game, but it's in the pep talk where the real story begins.

A stranger convinces the coach of a team with a 24-game losing streak to allow him to give a pep talk before they go up against a winning team. The underdog team is victorious because of the influence of this stranger. The pep talk and the actual game are intriguing, but the real story begins 29 years later when the coach, suffering from a brain tumor, discovers the stranger had prophesized specific events that occurred in the ensuing game. Is there a logical explanation? Is there a spiritual explanation? The answers to these questions capture the reader's attention to the very end.

Author is a regular on ESPN and the book has been endorsed by Larry Coker (U. of Miami), Nick Saban (head coach of Dolphins), Bill Callahan (Cornhuskers), Tom Donahoe (Buffalo Bills), Emmitt Smith (All-time NFL Leading Rusher), and others.
