What makes DeWayne Owens especially unique in the speaking industry is his passionate desire to help others discover their purpose in life and how their purpose applies to their careers. He understands and is the product of a life gone bad and turned around for good. DeWayne was once a victim of drug addiction. What started out as recreational usage during his freshmen year in college grew out to a full-blown addiction over the course of the next fifteen years.

When DeWayne finally found the courage to come out of his addiction, his life was totally turned around. He discovered he had God-given talents in the areas of public speaking and writing. He also discovered that he had a God-given calling in his life to empower others to discover their calling in life and how their calling relates to their professional careers. DeWayne went on to develop his speaking skills through Toastmasters International where he excelled both in speaking and in leadership. Over the years he utilized his talents in speaking and writing along with his background in psychology and as a career advisor to train others in career development and discovering their purpose for career enhancement.

DeWayne is an example of the American dream. He has successfully conquered the demons of his past and is living the career of his dreams. DeWayne knows that if he can overcome a life of chemical dependency and a critical period of being unemployed to go on to become a successful entrepreneur, then anyone has the potential to discover the career of their dreams whether it be in the workforce or becoming an entrepreneur.

Today, DeWayne spreads his messages nationally to workforces, corporations, associations, colleges, high schools, at-risk youth, prisons and churches. He has been called one of the countries best "Edu-tainers" on the speaking circuit, meaning he has the rare ability to deliver an entertaining message while educating the audience at the same time.
