“Pamela’s message is real – not contrived. She’s a living testimonial to how the ‘can do’ attitude will win out over the ‘I can’t.’ What’s more, she’s entertaining, amusing and fun to listen to.”
Mike Rounds
Former President, L.A. Chapter
National Speakers Association

One of Pamela Samuels Young’s favorite quotes comes from movie mogul Tyler Perry: “We don’t wait have to wait for somebody to green-light our projects. We can create our own intersections.” Pamela, a former journalist turned attorney and author, knows a thing or two about creating opportunity. Now she’s helping others realize their dreams.

A native of Compton, California, Pamela knows from experience that the road to success is no cakewalk. Whether the goal is to obtain a promotion, start a business or write a book, Pamela has the tools to get you there. In thought-provoking presentations packed with humor and insight, Pamela shares the lessons learned from her own successes and disappointments and helps her audiences reach their own untapped potential.
