TEDxYoungstown: Moss Explores Our Relationship to Motivation
New Life for the Emerald Diner
Youngstown residents discuss what information they believe a news site should provide to their community.
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — At the insistence of some of his clients at BlessBodyFit, Joe Moss II tried out to speak at TEDxYoungstown this year.
“I ended up auditioning and I got in, which was amazing in itself” Moss says. “Then I figured, ‘You know what? I have to have something to say.’ “
That shouldn’t be an issue for the exercise scientist and lifestyle/fitness coach, who tries to say encouraging things to his clients, he says. At the TEDxYoungstown event on Sept. 7, Moss will discuss our relationship to motivation and how to keep people motivated to achieve a goal, he says.
“Trying to get people inspired and keep them going is tough, it’s challenging,” Moss says.
It’s an idea that’s been molded and shaped by the culture of TEDx, Moss says. To find out what this is all about, don’t miss TEDxYoungstown, Sept. 7 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the DeYor Performing Arts Center. Tickets are available at TEDxYoungstown.com.
William Shivers came from a large family that didn’t have much, so he makes it a point to give back when he can. The regional president of Huntington Bank has gone into schools for the United Way of Youngstown and Mahoning Valley‘s Success After 6 program, which as afforded him some special moments, he says.
“A lot of times, the students will come up and give you a hug and tell you ‘thank you.’ And I think it’s them reaching out to say, ‘Listen, we need help. We want help,’ ” Shivers says. “Quite honestly, that’s very fulfilling.”
In Shivers’ Change Makers video interview with Roxann Sebest, he says Huntington employees volunteer time and money to support United Way programs.
“Huntington believes in making people’s lives better, helping businesses thrive and strengthening communities where we serve,” he says. “We’re aligned with the United Way’s mission.
