Shelomo Solson

I Am a DreamMaker

Everyone has a dream goal. It may be to own a successful business, run a marathon, or travel the world with the family. “Pursuing your dreams can have many benefits. It can give you a sense of purpose. It can help you become happier. You can even become an inspiration to others,” said Solson. The problems are the outside influences and struggles that can lead to a feeling of low self-worth causing you to tell yourself, that you’re unsuccessful, lazy and uninspired.

Shelomo wants to help you believe that you can achieve your dreams. He will share how he went from being in speech therapy as a child to becoming a motivational speaker and speech competition winner. He was bullied as a child because others thought he spoke funny. He went to speech therapy and failed every reading assessment, but he persevered.

Shelomo Solson is a motivational speaker, author of “Never Fight Alone” and has a podcast that is heard in over 30 countries. Shelomo made it his goal to become more confident. Within eleven years, he held fifteen leadership positions, won seven speech competitions, helped run a startup for six years and became an entrepreneur, full-time. He travels the country spreading his message. He presented virtually in five countries during the pandemic and authored his book. He believes if he can remove the limiting beliefs and become his version of success, so can you.
