Maurice Clarett has traveled throughout the nation speaking to universities, businesses, non-profits, faith based organizations and high schools. His life experiences has led him to be one of the most sought after speakers.
Maurice continued his success at Ohio Sate becoming the first freshman running back to start, being named Big Ten freshman of the year, and setting the freshman rushing and touchdown season record. He was also instrumental in helping Ohio State clinch the National Championship in 2002 with two pivotal plays “the strip” and scoring the go ahead touchdown. This was Maurice’s only season at Ohio State due to a series of events that took place in his life (These events can be seen in the ESPN 30 for 30 documentary “Youngstown Boys”).
After much success on the field Maurice had trouble finding that same level of success off of the field and found himself serving a 7 1/2 year prison sentence. It was there that Maurice began to take that work ethic and discipline that brought him so much success as a football player and began to focus it on himself as a person. He began to educate himself through college courses, and reading books that interested him on topics such as the economy, finances, and business. His growth became evident to those around him as he would share what he had learned and began motivating those around him. It was this type of leadership that permitted him to be released 4 years early.
Upon being released Maurice went right to work in developing what he has envisioned. He wanted to create a platform that would allow him to connect, educate, and empower people in their life and/or profession. Maurice soon found himself connecting with the nations top business executives with the most notable being Warren Buffet.
His ability to connect with his audience in a practical way leaves those who hear his words feeling inspired. Maurice believes that when you compound positive reinforcements in your life, over time, you begin to receive the benefits from them.
