Speakers need to earn your attention.
I've compiled a quick list of speakers who have earned mine. As business and entrepreneurial minded individual, I can’t thank these people enough. My mindset is that there is always opportunity to work harder, to be more effective and dig deeper into my own capabilities. These thought-leaders continually produce content that has pushed the limits in my own life. I often get motivation from speakers and thought-provoking leaders like Brene Brown, Tony Robbins and Tim Ferris but these people stand out above the rest.
These are the speakers who get me hype and inspire me to hustle.
Do yourself a favor and check these speakers out.
E.T. is an absolute motivational powerhouse. He comes out Detroit, MI and that #DetroitHustle is very evident. He has that blue-collar ironclad go-getter attitude that can only come from one of America's greatest cities.
You can hear his wisdom echoed from high school locker rooms, board rooms and incubators across the world. If every in need of motivation then you must take the time to listen him.

Gary Vaynerchuk is an irreverent entrepreneur from New Jersey who built his parents wine business from 4 million to 60 million in his first couple years out of college. He is now the CEO of Vaynermedia, startup investor and an author of some of my favorite books.
He is also a renown speaker who travels all over the world challenging business-minded individuals on their work ethic, cultural norms and marketing practices. If you are a business owner or an entrepreneur, you should be following this guy on social media.
Seriously, It's worth it.
Also, do yourself a favor and check out his videos on Youtube titled "DailyVee".

Simon Sinek is one of the current thought-leaders on the topic of leadership. He is challenging baby boomers to millennials on how leadership in business should look.
He was put on the map by his famous 2009 TED Talk labeled “How Great Leaders Inspire Action”. He is now a traveling speaker and has written several books in which I encourage you to read. You’ll want to check him out and if you have the chance to hear him speak, don't pass it up. You'll walk away inspired to reach for new heights.
The hustlers of today should be the leaders of tomorrow. If you are looking to polish up on your leadership skills, Simon is a great place to start.
Favorite Quote: "A leader's job is not to do the work for others, it's to help others figure out how to do it themselves, to get things done, and to succeed beyond what they thought possible." - Simon Sinek
