I am Neal Brownell The Crazy Inventor. I teach positive self-esteem and encourage individuals to find their passions and natural aptitudes with my book The Doorway – To Finding Your Purpose In Life. I have an important message to deliver to my readers and audiences. Through The Doorway and my speaking engagements, my goal is to teach as many people as possible that they are absolutely incredible and have a unique gift to bring to the world. My vision for my teaching is an ambitious one. Invite me to share this vision with you – you will not be disappointed.

I would love to be invited to speak at your organization, book club, library, or any other event. I also teach a workshop and would be glad to send you information on my workshop.

Please contact me directly via my contact form on this site to ask about speaking at your event.
