Rick Metzger comes straight from the farmland
-- a large and powerful man who shares a spirited message of self-esteem and
potential. Rick's genuine, down-home style comes from 19 years on the family
farm and a background in farm supply and garden wholesale. Based on his
"farm" upbringing, he brings a wholesome message that challenges others to
be their best.
programs overflow with enthusiasm, heart and soul -- and his warmth and
humor carry the message through to both adults and youth. Rick's goal with
teens is to help them believe in themselves. Compelling stories, personal
experiences, and lots of fun are just a few techniques he uses to get his
message across. His commitment to American youth is evident in his
involvement with FFA (Future Farmers of America) and the National Council
for Vocational & Technical Education in Agriculture. He is a retired
professional athlete, a power lifter with two recent gold medals from the
World Cup of Powerlifting, and a high school athletic coach. Having worked
closely with teens, he understands their uniqueness and knows how to relate.

programs to contain up to 80% humor, always designed to entertain, not to

his love for life and people, Rick is dedicated to challenging himself and
others to be their best.
Rick sums it all up best by saying ...
"I can't promise you that you'll be any smarter or get any richer after
you hear me ... but you'll sure feel better about yourself!"
