Inspiration, Motivation, Strategy

Overcoming Barriers and Achieving Unbelievable Success!

Mychal Wynn, author, consultant, educator, parent, motivational speaker, and college planning expert, is a first generation college graduate who is 'authentic.' The authentic manner in which he conducts staff development for educators, speaks to parents, and 'keeps it real' with students, is less about being politically correct and more about being strategically focused. 

 As a child of poverty and first in his family to attend college, Mr. Wynn has unique insight into how to synthesize research into practical strategies for working with students and families. Mr. Wynn believes in 'bell-to-bell' student engagement, whether teaching writing or college planning, it's not about the workout, it's about the work ethic.

Talk to any student and parent with whom Mr. Wynn has worked and they will tell you, "Mr. Wynn is vested in student success—he takes it personally. Consequently, he is going to have an 'authentic' conversation with you. Your dreams must align with your work ethic. Your college aspirations must align with your course taking. Your scholarships needs must align with your leadership, community service, gifts and talents, and how your teachers, coaches, and counselors will attest to your character.' Mr. Wynn is going to keep it real!"
