    SR-71 Pilot Becomes a Motivational Speaker

    This guy is a good speaker and I thought his speech very entertaining. If you have some time to kill give him a listen to.

    The SR-71 is an awesome bird!\...but I would not want to eject at cruising altitude!!
    Used to see them land and takeoff at night at Clark Air Base in 1968, when their existence was classified secret.
    Did not see them again until circa 2003 when the Ronald Reagan Library employees and docents arranged a tour of Edwards Air Force Base.

    If an SR-71 pilot can't get u moving, nothing can.

    If you don't have the time at least check out his "Speed Check" story, a good icebreaker for the more serious speaking engagements.

    That was pretty neat. Thanks for posting elime.

    I had the pleasure of hearing Brian speak this past fall here in Anchorage and meeting him. He is a very charismatic person with a story that nearly everyone can relate to. What impressed me most was his willingness to share his story, his approach-ability and his outlook on life. He made sure to shake hands and speak to everyone (especially kids) that waited to speak with him. His is the true version of "you can achieve anything in life-if you don't quit!".
