Full Bio

An award-winning speaker, best-selling author, national media personality, and national columnist, Willie Jolley inspires millions with music and motivation. In the January 2010 issue of Success Magazine, he was hailed as the “comeback king” for successfully helping Ford Motors avert the need to accept bailout dollars. Ford then launched a speaking tour during which Jolley addressed all employees.

Jolley was named “one of the outstanding five speakers in the world” by Toastmasters International, an honor held by less than 50 speakers worldwide. Former winners include Nelson Mandela, Christopher Reeve, Margaret Thatcher, and Colin Powell. He has also received the two top designations the National Speakers Association bestows on the best of the best: the CPAE/Speaker Hall of Fame Award, a lifetime honor for speaking excellence and professionalism held by such luminaries as Ronald Reagan, Zig Ziglar, and Les Brown; and Certified Speaking Profession (CSP) recognition for being a person who has made a mark in the speaking industry with presentation excellence to varied industries and audiences.

Jolley now hosts the CBS affiliated segment Live Better with Willie Jolley, sponsored daily by McDonald’s. The goal of this feature is to provide inspiration and specific strategies for living a better life one day at a time. McDonald’s also named Jolley a “Black History Maker of Today.”

The author of two international best-selling books, It Only Takes a Minute to Change Your Life! and A Setback Is a Setup for a Comeback, Jolley’s new organizational development book is called An Attitude of Excellence. His latest wealth-building, mass-market book, Turn Setbacks into Greenbacks, is on its way to becoming another bestseller.

As host of the national radio show “The Willie Jolley Weekend Show” on XM Satellite radio, Willie Jolley is making a major mark on the talk radio scene. His syndicated daily feature, “The Willie Jolley Motivational Minute,” can be heard in over 50 markets, on the Rejoice Radio Network, The Radio One Network, and WHUR-FM in Washington, DC. His column is syndicated by the National News Press Association and is read by over six million people. His television special, Turning Setbacks into Comebacks with Willie Jolley, can be seen regularly on public television stations across America.

Known for his content-rich, inspirational, and entertaining presentations, Jolley’s many clients include Ford Motors, GM, Verizon, Dell, Wal-Mart, Marriott, Domino’s Pizza, McDonald’s, Allstate Insurance, Coca-Cola, Borders Books, Prudential of Australia, The American Society of Association Executives, and the US Marines.

Jolley holds a BA in psychology and sociology from the American University and a masters degree from Wesley Theological Seminary. His mission in life is to help people maximize their God-given talents and abilities so they can “do more, be more and achieve more!”
