About the Author

Larry Powell is currently a Dallas-based marketing and advertising professional. Although he has extensive experience in journalism as an academician and business entrepreneur, Life’s Little Book of Survival Quotes is his first foray into publishing his own works.After the Twin Towers terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, all but destroyed his means to earn a living (resulting in the loss of his business, his marriage and his home, colleagues, friends and family members), he fought his internal demons and realized there was no other choice but to pull up his boot straps and keep participating in his life.As new doors started to open, his desire to bring uplifting, inspirational messages and tools to empower people to change their lives increased exponentially. He parlayed his experience in marketing and advertising into strategizing solution-based programs for profit and not-for-profit organizations. And established grassroots platforms to help individuals struggling to rebuild their lives and businesses during these very tough times hit by financial and natural disasters.The entrepreneurial, philanthropic and humanitarian components of Larry’s nature are the basis for his need to nurture and support people to reach their fullest potential. He is a life coach, a mentor, philosopher, and an educator – all of which he learned through practical applications of the education he gained throughout his collegiate years.Powell earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts in advertising from the University of Texas at Arlington.But his professorships in communication and advertising at the P.I. Reed School of Journalism, University of Missouri School of Journalism, and Southwest Methodist University – and his business training of Chinese journalists in Beijing – were the real impetus behind teaching and inspiring people around the world how to live a more fulfilling, rewarding life.Underpinning his drive to affect change are four key components: The human spirit, survival, diversity, and the “mojo” (the magic) in his passion for success -- all of which have been assimilated into his work with organizations such as the Boy Scouts of America, Habitat for Humanity, Texas Christian University, and hundreds of others across the United States.His broad-based skills enabled him to create leadership modules used by staff at all levels, retail and promotional campaigns, city and state officials, and media clients. As well as business models for multicultural, spiritual, and educational programs, and the individuals running them. The coaching and mentoring programs Powell developed over the years are an amalgam of his career as a director of creative strategy; marketing/communications consultant; business director; founder and director of his own advertising agencies; and media mogul – all of which have been foundations for his exploration into journalism.Before looking into the future as a writer, the positions in Powell’s arsenal of achievements speak to his humanitarian involvements, and as a formidable speaker and educator: Quest for Success Entrepreneur Award for Business Excellence; Dallas Society of Visual Communications (DSVC); Board of Directors for Boys & Girls Club of Greater Dallas; Board of Directors, Marcus Graham Project; Board of Advisors for ROXY (TCU Student Ad Agency); member of American Institute of Graphic Arts, Dallas Chamber of Commerce and the Black Chamber of Commerce; the D/FW Minority Business Development Council; and the National Association of Black Journalists.Having crammed several lifetimes into one, he is a true visionary when it comes to the power of the written word. By establishing his Life’s Little Book 12-part series flagship, he is hopeful his words of encouragement can revitalize a disconnected, downtrodden mindset into one that can change any dream into a reality.
