This is for YOU!

2 hours ago I finished 24 speeches in 24 hours in a city I love. I am tired yet blown away by all the support, this record is for YOU. Thank you everybody who was a part of this, whether you were an audiance member or working behind the scenes you rock. The next step is to package all of this together to send off to Guinness World Record, the judgement will be in their hands. Just know if it's not recognized, it's still a day to remember and hold dearly. All loss and gain are functions of growth. Here's to you. No matter where you are and who you are,  you have the potential to do great things. #sweetaction #worldrecord #MostSpeechesSTL #wrecktherecord #WebeatRalph #Stl #speaker



The 24th Speech. 

The 24th Speech. 


I am speaking at The Village at MacKenzie Place right now! I'm running about 20 minutes behind schedule due to traffic, but I thank you all for your patience and keeping up with me!  

My next stop will be Provision Living STL Hills then Gateway Harley. I hope to see some familiar faces tonight!

Hey everyone! We’re only two days away from my attempt at a world record! Due to some technical difficulties, I’m not able to release the full list of venues yet. I will give you as much information as I can right now. 

The first speech will begin at 9 a.m. Thursday at the Hyatt by the Arch followed by a 10 a.m. speech at the Stan Musial statue outside Busch Stadium. The 24 hours will be capped off at 8:30 a.m. Friday at St. Charles Community College. STAY TUNED!!!

I am going to attempt to break the Guinness World Record of most speeches within a 24-hour period starting in downtown St. Louis at 9 A.M., April 28th and ending Friday morning, April 29th at St. Charles Community College at 8:30 A.M. Each of my speeches must be no less than 10 minutes in length and have 10 unique listeners per speech location. Ralph Nader currently holds the world title with 22 speeches. 

I wanted to do this record because I'm tired of the negative perception people have of my beloved city. 

I have lived in Missouri all my life. I was born in Clayton, raised in the first state Capitol, St. Charles. You won't find it a surprise that I am an ordinary guy who loves the chill from the ice of Blues game and the hot seats warmed by the summer sun at a Cardinals game. My latest friendships started with a beautiful question, where did you go to high school? If I didn't know about the food groups I would only consume toasted ravioli, provel cheese and gooey butter cake. I don't mind if I see white snow cover the top of the Arch on Sunday then Monday I'm outside under sun in 80 degree weather getting a tan line at the Zoo, then on Tuesday being trapped by rain. I can't imagine a better place to call home than a place that was built on perseverance.

Due to my life situations and trials, I persevered and realized at 13 I had a voice for speaking, a voice that can make a difference. I have since then utilized my incredible story to impact lives world-wide from speaking at Congressional briefings in Washington D.C. to high schools, colleges, juvenile centers, and youth organizations across the nation. My journey of hope has taken him internationally to Haiti, Ecuador, England and Kenya. I see my vast experiences as an avenue to encourage others at every event. Winner of a TeenNick Halo Award, Brryan has also been featured as one of People Magazine's "Heroes Among Us" and ABC World News/Diane Sawyer's "Person of the Week." My story may have delivered me around the world but there is no place like home and this is where I want to set an example and make a difference.

I can't travel anywhere without someone asking where I am from to which I respond with great pride. Their response "Must be bad" or "I’m sorry." What is there to be sorry about? I know we have our battles but let's not forget the victories we have already accomplished and the ones to come. I want to draw more positive attention and show the world that this is a great city. I want to do my duty to remind everyone that this is the Show Me State and revive the spirit of St. Louis. 

I believe in extraordinary people. I believe in ordinary people who do extraordinary things. I believe in STL.

Help Wanted

As you may know on April 28 and 29th I am setting out to break the world record for The Most Speeches In 24 Hours right here in the greater St. Louis area, the current record is held by Ralph Nader at 21 speeches. In order to execute 22 or more speeches, I am in dire need of help, I need more locations and people who can help out with the event or just simply be in the attendance at each stop. 

Each speech has to be given at a different location and last at least 10 minutes. Each speech has to have at least 10 people in the audience at a location open to the public for my record to count. 

The reason I am doing this is to show love for my hometown in addition to raising money for two awesome local non-profit organizations. 

What do you say, can you help? 

1. Forward this info on and get your friends pumped up

2. Commit to being at one or more location (final schedule will be posted the week of the 25th)

3. We need more locations (please contact Scott at or input info bellow)

Join my team and let's show how much we love the Lou!
