George Lytle
I am a nurse by trade and entrepreneur by spirit. I thoroughly enjoy helping others! As an entrepreneur, I am involved in direct sales, speaking, performing, song writing, and event coordinator. I also enjoy writing poems and I love to joke around because I believe that laughter is good medicine the doctor can’t charge you for! I have a Youtube channel entitled “PEPTalk” which stands for passionately empowering people! Like Abraham Lincoln said “all that I am and ever hope to be I owe to my mother”. My desire to help others, is a character trait past along to me by my mother. It doesn’t matter if it’s her last dime or the last minute of her time, if she can help someone else it’s worth the sacrifice! She is the reason I am who I am today! Growing up my mom always told me, “shoot for the moon and even if you miss you’ll land among the stars” which was an echo in the back of my mind when I was pursuing my basketball dreams and co-managing a studio and rap group early in life. After growing up a little bit, I went back to school to become a licensed nurse in 2006 and married my beautiful wife in 2009, with whom we have 4 children, two of which are grown and two of which are still at home. It is a God given privilege to be a husband to my wife and a father to my children. The time I spend with family my is “priceless”! I believe a real man/woman of integrity who understands the power of purpose, leaves a legacy to take care of his/her family for generations to come! Therefore, it is my duty to passionately empower people to live for today but plan for tomorrow!
