Michael Williams has a real passion for people and technology. With a serious background in ministry, social services and technology, he is able to integrate the very best from these fields into each and every service he delivers. He is the founder of The Place to Learn, Corp. and serves his community as a Professor at Hillsborough Community College and as a relationship coach with You&Me, a program of Family Resources, Inc.
A Personal Story. . .
Michael was left by his birth mother in the hospital and was finally taken into a wonderful family at the age of 6 months. He owes his life, character and drive to his family and upbringing in the church where he learned the value of having an intimate relationship with God.
His journey took him through an Upward Bound program at the University of Pennsylvania where he developed a desire, the skills and confidence to attend college on a 3-year R.O.T.C. scholarship. Eventually he discovered that he was being called into the ministry. But there was one problem. . . he stuttered. And, he had stuttered most of his life. But through prayer, persistence and study of how we are able to reprogram ourselves to change deep-rooted patterns of thoughts, habits and attitudes, he was able to stop stuttering and totally transform his entire life.
Married, 20 years at the time of this writing, Michael owes much of his success to his wife Myra with whom he has been with since the age of 16. One of Michael’s greatest desires is to help every individual become a more productive citizen in whatever area he or she feels called. He believes that one can be more productive when they have an intimate relationship with God, inspiration, encouragement, support, knowledge, and, believe it or not, technology. Though technology will look very different in the future, he believes this is a tool that can be used to serve humankind in ways we cannot even imagine today.
Here's what some are saying about this program:
I really don't have any words to express my thanks to you. Initially I found it a bit difficult but now with practice and affirmations, I am seeing some results. I can now speak easily with my friends, relatives and parents..also I have seen myself speaking fluency with unknown persons as well.
I just can say one thing it really feels great when you being a stutterer are able to express your words easily and freely. I am working on my public speaking and I am sure I would be able to achieve a fluent public speech as well.
Thanks once again for releasing such wonderful program. I wish each and every stutterer should go for this program because it really works. This program only judges your patience and hard work. You need to be patient and keep on sticking with the program because it takes time to reformat your subconscious beliefs.
I remember a month before, I was not able to see any changes and got really very frustrated but I didn't give up, I continued with the affirmations and practice, and now I have started to see some changes.
I listened to the whole program and I must say that hats off to you. It's a great work you are doing. I've started practicing since two weeks and my friends noticed a significant change in me. Though it's a minor change in my speaking because it has only been two weeks yet. And I'm hoping to see some major changes soon no matter how long it takes.
Excellent technique I should say and great work you are doing.
Today i had a some great successes speaking. I was chosen to read in class and made it through without stuttering. I also carried on a decently lengthy phone conversation without stuttering as well.
Through the start speaking program i feel a real hope to overcome my stutter. With affirmations and practice I have been seeing improvements only a couple weeks after I started. When I speak now I am more confident and I can picture myself speaking fluently and have been seeing many successes throughout the past weeks. Thank you for helping others and sharing your techniques. I still have a long time to go but I know it will be worth it because this program works!
