Speech Topics

1) “Use What You Have - Even If Its Nothing!”

He discusses how someone who has never taken an acting class, a writing class, gone to film school or have any industry connections can go to Hollywood and star in a network (CBS) TV series, direct studio (Warner Bros) films, and produce and create multiple series for numerous TV networks. He had to used all of his assets… None!

2) "Against All Odds”

Stan is one of the statistics that slipped through the cracks. Selling drugs and being raised in the projects, he definitely beat the odds.

3) “It Takes a Woman To Raise A Man”

Stan's female driven films “Preacher’s Kid” and Woman Thou Art Loosed” were inspired by his very difficult childhood and being raised by a single mother. These events inspired him to address hard-hitting topical issues like domestic and sexual abuse.

4) “Put a Value on Your Experiences”

Stan struggled through life for many years until he learned to put a dollar value on life experiences. The experiences have since generated many millions of dollars by turning them into stories. In fact, this billion dollar model directly inspired and was replicated with great success by none other than Tyler Perry and Bishop T.D. Jakes.
