Sometimes, when I’m down, I phone Spider Jones www.spiderjones.com a radio talk show broadcaster and motivator for youth at schools.
Spider, whose birth name is Charles, but he prefers Chuck rather than Charles, and Spider rather than Chuck, takes me off me and my woes by sharing his experiences and choices.
Instead of reviewing his undulant past, when he was a gang-enforcer, thief, Rhythm & Blues singer, golden-gloves champion, I suggest you might read his autobiography “Out of the Darkness” (from which I wrote a screenplay). This much I’ll say, he bounced back from the tough street life, from all the punches physically and metaphorically. Spider was encouraged by Jackie, his supportive wife, to go back to school as a mature student (inn his thirties) to study his dream of radio broadcasting.
Regardless, of the fact, that he did time and cleaned up his act, he was reluctant to sit with much younger students. Fortunately, a teacher who saw him box said he was a fighter and would get back in the ring of education. “Stick-and-stay-and-make-it-pay.” He stuck it out and graduated with honours.
While working as a professional broadcaster and TV sports personality something haunted Spider; therefore, when he was given an opportunity to talk to high school students about education and trades he went for it. My man, Mr. Jones, loved seeing the looks on the youth and hearing them laugh or ask questions.
Today, teachers, counselors, and social workers line up to get him to come to their schools. His presentation is like a one-man Broadway show with humour and seriousness. He wants to help the kids to prevent them from falling through the cracks and end up with the harsh streets with knives and guns, which seems cool.
And through his charity, Believe To Achieve www.believetoachieve.ca he tries to raise funds so the schools do not have to pay, hence they can save money for other necessary requirements.
If you are a representative of a school and desire to have a terrific motivational speaker, one of the best in North America, who shares his life and choices and turn around, contact Spider Jones: firstname.lastname@example.org
