“It is rare to find people who have the courage to face events that have defined their lives and gain knowledge from them.

His raw honesty about his own events and the ability to share them so that others may learn and improve their lives is a gift to be valued.” – Larry Lovis, author of Mapping Your Retirement Road: A No-Nonsense Guide to a Financially Better Life.
“Tim is offering every one of us a gift with this message. It’s practical, memorable and crucial. Can’t wait to see Tim Richardson OWN THE STAGE with Own Your Shit.” – Vicki Goodfellow Duke, Communications Professor at Mount Royal University
