The Workshop

Mike Nygren: Author

The Ten Balloons. Principles of Leadership, Life and Love captures the spirit of what it means to take an intentional look at your life. This realistic approach to a balanced life is personal and practical in outlining steps for creating intentional purpose statements in ten areas of your life.

Mike’s story telling approach to life brings great inspiration and motivation in the areas of family, career, relationships, education, finances, health, and adventure. This multi-generational topic is designed for young people and adult audiences of all ages who like personal challenges.


“We empower students to do more than they ever imagined.”

Sponsors play a key role in sharing the process of empowering students within their community. Oftentimes your sponsorship provides leadership and educational opportunities that would never be possible due to budget restraints within organizations.

With more than 40-years of experience working to educate, equip and engage students in leadership and community service, I have learned how to creatively customize a curriculum for specific audiences.
