ABOUT LES

Radio/Podcast Host, Inspirational Keynote Speaker, Cable TV MLB Analyst, Life/Executive Coach, Former MLB Player, Husband, and Father

 

I'm Les Norman, and I have a passion for people.  I find human beings utterly fascinating, and I love sharing their stories-the REAL ones-with the world on my radio show and podcast, "Breakin' the Norm".  I'm also driven to help create passionate servant leaders in business, assist others to establish their own personal brand, and lead men to be the best they can be through life and executive coaching.  One of my greatest rewards is to see others live joyfully and be successful!

I grew up without much in life.  An abusive childhood could have left me broken, but I used the wrong road map to find the right places.  I often heard phrases like "You'll never make it." or "You're not good enough.", but instead of believing the negative voices, I became driven to achieve the success I wanted to.  I learned what true joy is through faith and family.  And most importantly, I used my gift of encouragement to help others in life.  

  As I think back, it's been a remarkable ride.  Earning a Jr. Olympic Gold Medal.  Playing Major League Baseball.  Cliff jumping into the wild ocean in Venezuela.  Sitting in a volcanic hot tub in Costa Rica.  And even winning on the hit game show, "Wheel of Fortune"!!  But with all of those cool experiences, the best one of all...being husband to my bride and best friend of 25 years, Kristin, and being baseball coach and dad to amazing sons Mack (20) and Tayt (16)!
