This nationally recognized keynote was birthed out of Cody's deep need to reconcile the excuses and pain of his own life to show not only himself, but also his son, what was possible in the midst of losing your very soul.
A thriving pastor, communicator and professional musician of over 12 years, Cody had the "perfect" life.... until it all came crashing down, seemingly out of nowhere. After being blindsided with a very public divorce, Cody then went on to bury 8 family members and friends over the course of a year, all to unrelated tragedies. While losing everything, he continued to show up as the "yes man" and the guy with the smile, addicted to affirmation and later alcohol behind the scenes.
Just when things couldn't get worse, they did. His body went septic in 2016 and at a 106 degree fever, he was dying. Losing over 25lbs in a few days, he meandered to the bathroom of his hospital room and looked himself in the face to utter words that changed everything; "What needs to die in you to become the man you said you’d be?"
From that point on, everything changed. Stepping out of public ministry, Cody was able to fully step into the passion of his life: true, radical transformation.
Now happily remarried with 3 amazing kids, Cody is regarded as one of the leading voices in personal development and entrepreneurial coaching. He leads a community of over 15,000 men and women, travels the country as a speaker and communicator, and is an equity partner in 3 other companies.
Cody is now regarded as the authority on helping highly talented, over-achieving, affirmation-addicted entrepreneurs, professionals, pastors and coaches in leading their movements while thriving in every area of life.
In this ACCLAIMED KEYNOTE, Cody will use his dynamic use of storytelling and empathetic yet powerful leading to compel every person in attendance.
