" Nic did an amazing job at our Back-to-School Convocation for our staff in helping us to realize the power of our perspective. We often overlook how important it is to take an extra second to look through the lenses of our students to better understand their plight."                    - Dr. Rodney Berry,                  Superintendent, Nottoway County Public Schools

"Nic served as our closing speaker for our annual student leadership conference and he was able to connect with our students through his energy and genuine style of speaking. he shared a meaningful message with our students that focused on perspectives and how everything that they are doing as students will be useful to them in their careers once they graduate. his time with our students was intentional and very timely to what they are facing as young people."

Lesley Villarose, Dean of Students Averett University

Ferrum College

"The Life Push team was great for our leadership retreat at Ferrum College.  Our students gave the program great reviews.  The Life Push team put together a program that got all students involved and thinking from a different perspective.  This was part of the Life Push motto “Success is a Perspective Away.” With the different exercises and interactions performed with the students throughout the retreat, the keynote address by owner Nic Sturdifen really put the entire program in perspective.  And he challenged our students, when in leadership roles, to view things from a different viewpoint/perspective and reach success"

Dear Mr. Sturdifen, I wanted to write you to commend the excellent speech you gave to the students here at the Virginia University of Lynchburg.  Your speech about seizing the opportunity to advance in everything that you do was exactly what our students needed to hear.  Not only did our students receive the message, the faculty and staff was impacted through your words as well, which was evident through meetings I attended and casual conversations with students and coworkers.  I know I have thanked you before via email, but I want to officially tell you how pleased we were with your presence on campus. Sincerely,

Charles Allen Director of Student Affairs Virginia University of Lynchburg
