Art Berg is one of my Heroes. His book, The Impossible Just Takes A Little Longer encouraged me like few books I have ever read.
Art received both a CSP and a CPAE award designation from the National Speakers Association. They are 2 of the highest honors a speaker can possibly receive and very few people receive either one of them.
Art writes about challenges being blessings and explains that concept better than anyone I have ever read or heard.
One of his key pieces of advice, which I also talk about, is not to ask why. That is very difficult to do and may not be possible at first, depending on the challenge.
By focusing on doing the best with what has happened, you become a better person and are better able to help others.
Art was recognized by three national sales awards as a computer salesman for a national firm. Art resided in Highland, Utah where he was President of Invictus Communications, Inc. and eSpeakers.com, Inc.
The Small Business Administration named Art the 1992 Young Entrepreneur of the Year. In 1994, Art Berg was featured in Success magazine as one of the Great Comeback's of the Year.
As a member of the National Speakers Association, Art achieved the highest earned designation of Certified Speaking Professional and was inducted into its Speaker Hall of Fame -- a status achieved by fewer than 1% of professional speakers.
Speaking as many as 200 times a year, Keynote Speaker's Bureau in San Francisco, California named Art as Consummate Professional Speaker of the Year.
Art Berg was a world-class wheelchair athlete enjoying a variety of sports, including full-contact wheelchair rugby. On July 10th, 1993 he set a world-record by becoming the first quadriplegic, at his level of ability, to race an ultra marathon of 325 miles between Salt Lake City, Utah and St. George, Utah.
"In the years that I have known Art, I don't know anyone who has had a greater impact on people's lives through the sheer force of his life's experience -- his trials, challenges, and ultimate triumphs. His ability to engage and captivate an audience with his life-affirming message is truly inspiring. I know from first-hand experience that he has changed the lives of thousands and his actions have moved many to create compelling lives, to stretch beyond themselves, and unleash the magnificent power that lies within. He is truly an amazing example of human potential -- a living treasure!"
"Truly inspirational, highly motivating ... Art 'walks our talk'."
