The Background Of Les Brown

Les Brown was born on February 17, 1945. Mamie Brown adopted him along with his twin brother when he was six weeks old. They lived in a poor section of Miami, Florida, and although they didn't have a lot of money while growing up, Mamie provided Brown with a lot of love.

He was labeled as a slow learner while still in grade school, although many of his problems were due to restlessness and inattentiveness. A teacher took interest in him, and along with his mother, helped turn Brown's academic achievements around during his high school years.

That great achievement helped Brown learn it was possible to meet your full potential, even if others didn't think you could. He refers back to that incident in his speeches and writing, as having an impact on the direction of his life.

Even though he had no more formal education after high school, Les Brown didn't let that stop him from achieving his dreams. He went on to become a radio DJ, broadcast manager, community activist, politician, best selling author, and motivational speaker.
