Clint Pardoe

As Clint was about to graduate from college, he didn’t know what he wanted to do with his degree in Business. This, combined with the ending of a romantic relationship, led him to experiencing overt anxiety, which led to depression, which led to some deep soul-searching. He spent the next year waiting tables & obsessively reading books about personal growth and spirituality.

Inspired by a former Professor, Clint went to graduate school to teach public speaking and interpersonal communication classes at the college level and, after a few years of doing so, did post-graduate work in Business/Life Coaching. This led to him writing The 4 Secrets to College Life Success and speaking & coaching in both the college and real estate markets. He also studied Yoga seeking God.

After the birth of Clint’s second child, his attempts to be superhuman the decade prior came to a crashing halt – he became physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually exhausted. Paradoxically, it was during this time that his spiritual seeking halted and he had the spiritual experience he was searching for. A few years later, two of his long-term relationships came to a halt as well; teaching at colleges and his marriage.

Given Clint’s desire to take his college speaking business to the next level, he went through a training program called Youth Speaker University. Upon completion, given his background, he was offered the Lead Coach position within the organization. Ironically, shortly thereafter, his real estate speaking & coaching business took off and, because of this, he was speaking less at colleges than before.

A decade later, two decades after this journey started, Clint felt called to refocus his energy on speaking at colleges and now offers two programs, Awaken Your Potential & Wake Up Call. He also hosts a weekly podcast-like meditation and conversation where, in community, college students can awaken to and live more of their full potential.
