We would like to welcome our newest contributing writer to The Black Perspective: Nicholas Dillon. He will be bringing his own insightful experiences and eloquent words to our columns, and we look forward to his articles to come.
An entrepreneur in his own right, Dillon is on a mission to pursue his passion and build a legacy of influence. Dillon’s motivational speaking captures audiences in academic and corporate settings.
“My dad always had an entrepreneurial spirit and my mom encouraged me to be the best I can be in life because average will never get noticed or recognized,” says Dillon, who later in life took the leap of faith to pursue his education and the world of self-empowerment as a Certified Life Coach and counselor.
The Milwaukee native possesses a Bachelors of Arts in Communication and a Masters in Adult Education, as an alumnus of Marquette University and University of Phoenix, respectively. Dillon initially launched his professional career in the field of Insurance & Risk Management. His career has placed him in front of business executives which served as a launching pad for the multifaceted professional he has become.
It has not come easy for Dillon to find his frame-of-reference and path to greatness. In his youth, Dillon overcame health challenges related to lung and respiratory disease along with childhood bullying that fostered years of severe shyness and low self-esteem. Now, as an educator mentor, Dillon has moved beyond his past. He finds himself eager to share his inspiration in hopes of influencing others to push through obstacles to begin living their best life. “My spiritual foundation and recognizing that I belong to God and with Him all things are possible,” says Dillon. He encourages his clients and peers to use positive self-talk as a daily subconscious regimen to keep their mind focused on their purpose.
Dillon has appeared on BET with Ed Gordon, BlogTalkRadio, and been speaker at national and world conferences such as the American Society of Training & Development. Nicholas had built a reputation as an expert in coaching. He has authored his first published workbook titled, “Do You Know Who You Are – Seven Concepts to finding your Frame of Reference.” Nicholas Dillon has appeared as an expert on radio to facilitate discussion on topics from relationships to self-image. He has also been featured as the keynote speaker for several national conferences and organizations. Recently, Dillon presented the commencement address for Sanford Brown University’s graduating class of 2011.
