Tim Rhode
The visionary and driving force behind the scenes is Tim Rhode Tim comes from a very humble background, growing up in a blue collar family in a blue collar town. His family’s tight financial situation left an indelible mark on Tim, and although he barely graduated high school and never attended college, Tim went on to dream, plan, and create his own “magnificent life.” Having gotten off to a very slow start in life inspired Tim to help others find their own paths. He is totally committed to helping people of all ages plan their best future, as well as helping transform the “life education” of young people. Tim’s passions include his family, fitness, skiing, hiking, and mountain biking.
“All my life I have planned and worked hard, and have been very blessed and now I really just want to give back and help others learn to do the same.”

brotha James _ Jeremy Resig
1Life Dare2Dream Program
"There were times throughout my school experience that led me to making fun of other kids just to fit in. I misbehaved purely out of boredom and had very little interest in doing any more than what I had to do which was not get a C ever! A’s and B’s were required. Bottom line is I was only operating at roughly 30% of my capacity while in school. I didn’t like to write, I hated to read and I was absolutely resistant to learning new information, skill sets or tricks that would help me move forward with my life. Now I’m 35 years old and have recognized that so many of the pains and struggles I currently am working through very much have to do with my middle school and high school experience.”

By bringing brotha James to your school, you can rest assured that your students will be exposed to gratitude, positivity and enlightenment. Through music and experience, brotha James will connect to your school’s philosophy in a way that has never been explained before. It’s amazing how sometimes all we need is to hear the information from a different source for it to sink in.
