I am so excited to share this conversation with you today. Today’s guest exudes positivity and inspiration, and I truly hope you’ll enjoy hearing his message as much as I did.

Kute Blackson is a transformational teacher, speaker, visionary guide, and national bestselling author of You Are the One and The Magic of Surrender. He also hosts the Soul Talk podcast and has dedicated his life to personal development, spirituality, transformation, and helping others navigate life’s challenges.

Kute was born in Ghana and grew up in London, England. When he was just 8 years old, he had his first experience as a public speaker when his father told him to “speak” in front of the congregation at his church.

When he was 14, he was ordained and designated as his father’s successor. A few years later, he made the difficult decision to walk away from the church to pursue his true calling in America, with two suitcases and $1,000 in his pocket.

You’ll hear Kute talk about the courage and vulnerability that parents possess when navigating a difficult medical journey. And I know you’ll just love his advice on how we can only serve others if we’re true to ourselves, the magic of surrendering and focusing on what we can control and understanding that the greatest gift that we can give to our kids is to see them for who they are.

Kute is a wonderfully talented speaker, and I’m so thankful he shared his gift, knowledge, and inspirational story with us today. Enjoy!
