Passionate promoter of positive change

Hello. My name is Dennis R Sumlin, and I am a promoter of positive change. As a Core Confidence Coach, Trainer and Speaker, I specialize in communication, goals/purpose, and living from the soul/spirit. My services help my clients become self-assured, focused high performers.

My background includes talent recruiting, internet broadcasting and voiceover/commercials. I have appeared on radio spots for companies such as Vanda pharmaceutical and other brands. I hold a Distinguished Toastmaster (DTM) certification from Toastmasters International (Speaking and Leadership), and have spoken at places such as The City College Of New York.

My 12+ years working with teens, young entrepreneurs and professionals, as well as my personal journey helps me move my clients towards their purpose. I hold a Life Coach certification from Erickson College International, along with studies in personal development, human sexuality, and holistic spirit energy.

I work with both individuals and groups/organizations to polish their communication, facilitate personal growth, and focus on long term goals. I combine my skills in the art of self-actualization and communication abilities to deliver the message of positive change, soul integration, and living ones purpose.

I discovered my interest in communication at a young age. From the age of 11, when I started creating improvisational skits on cassette tape, to acting and singing classes, I have always been drawn to express myself using my natural instrument. Soon, this led me to internet radio and voiceover work. Along with my passion for voice dynamics was accompanied by a deep passion to teach and elevate other people.

Moving towards my purpose not having a strong male role model, and dealing with others limiting beliefs about my blindness created some challenges for me. I struggled with, and toggled between firm self-confidence and deep depression. This inner battle slowed my professional progress, and caused havoc with my personal life. It was only after I started my journey into personal development and holistic soul spirituality that my life began to turn around.

I went from impulsivity to consistency. Instead of life happening to me, I made life happen for me. I have learned that there is always a greater self to strive towards, while being grateful for what you have.
