How To Believe in Yourself with Push Gaines

Dr. John “Push” Gaines, as seen in the New York Weekly, Yahoo Finance and USA Today is a professional speaker, author, leadership consultant, and mentorship expert. He has devoted himself to the world community. He has proudly appeared as a guest at the New York Stock Exchange, Universities, Corporations, nonprofit events, NBA skill camps, school assemblies, and youth camps across the country. As a graduate of East Central University, where he was named Outstanding Student in Business and won a football championship as captain of the football team, he is the picture of success. With a Master’s degree in Business Leadership and a Doctorate in Business Administration, he demonstrates great dedication and personal achievement. His goal, however, goes beyond personal accomplishment. He is driven to give hope to others because his own story grew from hopelessness. John earned his nickname “PUSH” because he believes in the power of perseverance and teaches others to “keep pushing” through life’s obstacles to become the best version of themselves. John’s childhood was one of extreme adversity. Growing up surrounded by drugs and violence, facing personal struggles, and being bullied for his differences, he had every reason to give up, but he pushed through. Now, as a professional speaker and author, John strives to help & teach people to overcome and to rise.
