17 Minutes to Your Dream
He felt invisible in high school. He failed as a business owner. He worked in a cubicle for over a decade. Today he's a world champion speaker. What made the difference for him can make the difference for you. A Real-Life Underdog Story Filled with Humor and Hope After a failed business in 1992, Darren LaCroix took a dare and took the stage at an open mic night at a Boston comedy club. He bombed miserably. It was horrible. The headliner that night told him, "Keep you day job kid." Friends told him that his dream of making people laugh for a living was crazy and stupid. He didn't listen. He may have been born without a funny bone in his body, but Darren possessed the desire to learn and the willingness to fail. These were the essentials for achieving his dream. This self-proclaimed student of comedy is living proof that anything can be learned. Less than nine years later, in 2001, Darren LaCroix outspoke 25,000 contestants from 14 countries to become the World Champion of Public Speaking…ironically with a very funny speech. Some said it was one of the best speeches in the history of the contest. Since that victory, has delivered keynotes in every state in the U.S. and 44 international cities. He is passionate about showing people that if you are a pray, find the right mentors, and become a sponge, anything is possible. Darren is currently the only speaker in the world who is a CSP (Certified Speaking Professional), an AS (Accredited Speaker), and a World Champion of Public Speaking. In spite of this, Darren always reminds people, “The letter after your name are not as important as the professional you become in the process.” He is the co-host of Unforgettable Presentations podcast. Through his live workshops and Stage Time University.com, he helps good presenters become UNFORGETTABLE.
You have a dream. You’ve been thinking about it. Wanting it. But it’s not happening. You’ve read other books that seem to make sense, but still, you are not in the process of making it happen. What if you’re still just “thinking about your dream” in a year? Five years? Ten? What if you keep putting it off and miss out on living your dream entirely? It’s time to finally make it happen. This book is going to help you. Now, let me tell you right up front: • You’ve probably read books on the power of goal setting; this is not that book. • You may have read a book on the science of goal setting; this is not that book. What’s the difference? This book is going to be insanely practical, simple, and doable. ((Some of the gems from the book: You are the CEO of your dream. You don't know which minutes will matter.
• Direct Sellers • MLM • Network Marketers • Entrepreneurs • People into self-development or motivational speakers like, Tony Robbins or Les Brown

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Darren LaCroix collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
