About Grant:Back in 2008, Grant was a broke youth pastor who didn’t really know what he wanted to do in life. Through a few twists and turns, he decided to start a speaking business. He worked hard to build my business and get paid to speak, all while trying to figure things out on his own because there weren’t a ton of great resources out there.

Despite starting his speaking career during a financial crisis in 2008, Grant has earned over $2 million from 500+ paid engagements all over the world. He has done everything from closed-door workshops to keynotes in front of 13,000 people. In 2015, he started his podcast, The Speaker Lab, which aims to give speakers clarity, confidence and a clear path to make an impact.
Grant is married to his high school sweetheart and together they have 3 girls. He currently resides in Nashville, TN.
