Richard Fenton

For as long as I could remember I wanted to be a speaker. I gave my first paid speech at the age of eight. I took plastic dinosaurs and set them up on a table in my basement, then invited everyone in the neighborhood over to hear me talk about them. As I recall, I charged 5 cents per person to get in. When Ms. Clark told me I was quite a 'professional' speaker, I decided that was my calling. Unfortunately, I let that dream go until finally, right before I turned 40, I decided that "One of These Days... Is Now" and I launched my business as a speaker, trainer, and author. Fast forward 20 years later and I'm a professional speaker and the author of several business parables including the best-selling title, Go for No! Yes is the Destination, No is How You Get There. My wife and business partner Andrea and I speak to audiences all over the world about overcoming fear of failure and rejection and how to reprogram they think about the word, No. I love the fiction-aspect of fables so much that my newest passion along with Andrea is writing our fictional series, Onyx Webb. Onyx Webb is a cross genre series in the paranormal category. We've written it to feel just like you're watching your favorite t.v. series, whether that's Downton Abbey or American Horror Story.
