210 – Tim Storey: World Renowned Motivational Speaker, Life-Coach to Hollywood Stars

Timothy Brian Storey is an American life coach, self-help author, motivational speaker, and entrepreneur. He is founder of Tim Storey Kids Foundation.

Storey grew up in a family of mixed heritage. He is the son of Anthony and Bessie Storey and the youngest of five children. His father died when he was 10 years old, followed by his sister’s death by car accident when he was 13 years old. He has two children, Isaiah and Chloe.

Storey studied at Southeastern University for three years and holds a Bachelor’s of Arts Degree from Southern California College, now called Vanguard University. He has also received his doctorate of divinity from Bethany Theological Seminary.

Before Storey was known as a life coach, he began teaching and praying for large masses of people as a traveling minister at 20 years old. His first speaking engagement was in front of 15,000 people, overseas. Now, he is a speaker, author and Life Coach who has traveled to 70 countries.

Back in 1992, a group of individuals believing in the power of possibilities, gathered together with Tim and eventually started the Hollywood Bible Study at the home of Dyan Cannon with seven people. Over the years, thousands of industry professionals and friends showed up monthly to be reminded and encouraged that things were not always what they seemed at first.

Through this study, Tim has helped countless world shakers, like Robert Downey Jr., Kanye West, Christian Slater, Deion Sanders, Natalie Cole, Charlie Sheen, Hunter Tylo, Berry Gordy, Suzanne De Passe, Quincy Jones, Lee Iacocca, Brent Bolthouse and so many more.

Over the years, it has gone from large crowded sessions at the Mondrian Hotel, Wyndham Bel Age (The London) and the Hyatt Andaz West Hollywood to small intimate gatherings in homes across the world in Beverly Hills, Miami, New York, Stockholm and Johannesburg.

The Study is currently meeting at the famous East West Studios in Hollywood, home of legends like Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Elvis Presley, the Beach Boys, Ray Charles, Johnny Cash and Michael Jackson, NBC’s The Voice, GLEE, Weezer, Stevie Wonder, U2, Sir Elton John and Incubus. Recently renovated by renowned designer Philippe Starck, EastWest is the perfect spot to get intimate and dive in and take us beyond our immediate perception of life.

Named one of “America’s Best Leaders” by U.S. News and one of TIME’s 100 “Innovators for the 21st century,” Linda Rottenberg is considered among the world’s most dynamic experts on entrepreneurship, innovation, and leadership. A frequent lecturer at Fortune 500 companies, Rottenberg is the subject of four case studies by Harvard Business School and the Stanford Graduate School of Business. Her pioneering work also earned her a host of nicknames: ABC and NPR declared her “the entrepreneur whisperer,” Tom Friedman dubbed her the world’s “mentor capitalist,” Business Insider named her “Ms. Davos,” and for years she was known as “la chica loca” (the crazy girl) for insisting that entrepreneurs existed not only in Silicon Valley but also in emerging markets around the world.

Whether you work at a Fortune 500 company, a non-profit, a mom-and-pop, or a startup, everybody needs the mindset to think and act like a change-maker. We all need to be nimble, adaptive, daring, and maybe even a little crazy, or risk being left behind.

The Art of Being Unmistakable: A Collection of Essays About Making a Dent in the Universe
We live in such a hyper-connected society today flooded with so much talent and so much noise.

Talent alone won’t cut it. Whether you’re an artist, musician, writer or creator of sorts, to stand out in the world you must be unmistakable. It’s the only option.

To create unmistakable work, you must take risks. You must cross lines, personal and professional. You must go to the point of a no return.

On my 34th birthday, I asked myself a question. “If this had been the last year of my life, would I have been ok with how I’d lived?” When my answer was a resounding NO, I knew that something had to change.

So I started to write in a way that was more honest, more transparent and more vulnerable than I ever had. I committed career suicide, one Facebook status update at a time. And in that process I found my voice. This collection of essays is about that journey. I hope it inspires you to find that unmistakable artist in yourself.”

The Unmistakable Creative Podcast
Srini Rao goes in-depth with Seth Godin, Tim Ferriss, Danielle Laporte, James Altucher and other artists, writers, entrepreneurs, and instigators.
