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.

Rick's 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.

Rick will tailor his presentation to meet your needs. He modifies programs to contain up to 80% humor, always designed to entertain, not to embarrass. Upon request, his presentation can be more serious. Because of 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!"
