Spread Your Light Coach, Author, Spoken Word Poet, Speaker

Helping you enhance and express your full potential.

Hi, I’m Bobby. I believe that getting the confidence to be vulnerable and embrace and express our true selves is the key to finding peace and impacting the world. 

My Story

 

The Beginning

I’ve always wanted to impact the world. When I was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis, I was originally told that I’d die before I was a teenager. Because of that I’ve always wanted to do something with my time while I’m here.

During my journey of figuring out exactly who I was and how I was going to make that impact, I had the courage to live out my passions which have led me to become an author, a spoken word poet, a speaker, and now a Spread Your Light coach.

 

The Realization

When I first began writing poetry it was just for myself. I was writing to get out my pain. Besides my chronic illness, I was going through a hard time in my life, because my father had passed away, and I was going through the biggest heartbreak of my life at the time. 

Writing was my healing.

When it came to putting my work out there, I was terrified, I didn’t want people to have an inside view of my life.

But when I finally performed a poem in front of a live audience, everything changed.

That’s when I truly gained confidence and understood how I could have an impact. 

My poems began to move people to tears, and others came up to me and told me how my art was affecting them, I knew that I was onto something that was bigger than me.

Continuing to follow that passion, I taught myself how to use social media to have my poems spread like wildfire. On Facebook alone, my poems have grossed over a million views and have spread to even more people.

And that’s when I made a decision that would change my life forever.

The Decision

That’s when I decided that I wanted to help others gain the confidence they need to truly express themselves and change the world.

Tupac said, “I will spark the brain that will change the world.”

I follow that same process. My impact alone on this world may not be the biggest, but if I can spark the brain whose message will reach a billion more people, then together we can truly change the world.

That’s how I want to spend my time while I’m still here.

Let’s spread our light.

Let’s make an impact.
