About Me

Hello everyone!

My name is Roger Osorio and I started this blog to share some of my thoughts and ideas with others.

I am a Penn State graduate with degrees in Finance and International Business.  My life today doesn’t have much to do with those degrees, but Penn State certainly played a significant role in my development as a motivational speaker and leadership coach.

Today, I am a math educator by day and a motivational speaker by night, and Startup Weekend facilitator by weekend.  In 2008 I made the difficult decision to leave my corporate career and stability behind in pursuit of my passion – developing people.

On this journey I have had the privilege and opportunity to:  earn an M.S. in Psychology and an M.B.A.; start and fail a few businesses; teach high school and middle school math; coach 100+ professionals, student leaders, and entrepreneurs; deliver motivational talks on leadership, entrepreneurship, and problem solving; and facilitate Startup Weekend events all around the country.
