ANT- Bullied Bashed But Not Broken

Wednesday, February 26, 2014
at 11:30AM in Room E130, Appleton Campus
Floundering in life for years, ANT moved to Los Angeles seeking fame and fortune. He began to run with a fast party crowd and soon his world started unraveling. ANT was bullied at school for being different - gay, of immigrant parents, having funny lunches. The need to fit in lead him into a dark dance with the devil. Years of alcohol, meth and heroin abuse brought him to the brink of insanity. Almost homeless, desperate for a way out, he chose suicide. But life had another plan.

ANT's amazing journey will take you through self-doubt, internalized homophobia, depression and chemical dependency. What follows next is an unforgettable journey from hell to happiness. A visitor from above, or the most vivid dream he has ever had, led him to the path of recovery. His is a story of hope and redemption. Currently, ANT lives in Los Angeles and has been clean and sober for nearly 6 years. He will reveal how each of us has an infinite power and infinite potential within us; the ability to command into existence anything we desire. Your change starts now!

Hal "Yo Pal Hal" Elrod - Survivor of a Drunk Driving Accident

Tuesday, April 8, 2014
at 11:30AM in Room E130, Appleton Campus
Hal Elrod has been known as “Yo Pal Hal” since hosting his first radio show at age 15. He became a national record-breaking sales rep for a $200 million marketing company at 19, but his real triumph came at age 20, when he was hit head-on by a drunk driver and found dead at the scene. His heart stopped beating for nearly six minutes, and six days later he woke from a coma to the devastating news that he had suffered 13 broken bones, multiple compound fractures, permanent brain damage, and he might never walk again.

Defying the logic of doctors and the temptations to be a victim, he bounced back to become a best-selling author, youth and college motivational speaker, international success coach, hall of fame business achiever, ultra-marathon runner (52 consecutive miles!), and most importantly – proud husband and father. Hal has appeared on dozens of TV and radio shows across the country, and his story was featured in the best-selling Chicken Soup for the Soul Book series. His best-selling book is Taking Life Head On! (The Hal Elrod Story) and he is the creator of the not-so-obvious secret guaranteed to change your entire life (8:00 A.M.) known as the Miracle Morning®.
