Meet NineRings

NineRings is bilingual Australian Chinese non-binary author who sees the world through very different lens as a result of their upbringing. Aside from writing, they are a cellist, flutist and artist, stubbornly choosing to create the covers of their novel as ‘it holds a personal connection’. The story of the universe known as the Nine Rings, developed over many years of spacing out in class and at work, extends across all of their novels under the same pen name regardless of the original language of publishing.

30 Days to Diversity

The humanization of diversity and inclusion is a tough topic, but it’s important. This 30-day guide will help you get started by asking yourself some questions that may be on your mind when it comes to this complex issue like “What does humanizing really mean?” or even more challengingly  “Who are we without our differences?”. You’ll also learn how practicing empathy can go hand in glove with valuing someone else’s perspective so they feel seen as an individual rather than just another member within groups whose membership has been reduced down over time through natural selection processes which sometimes includes violence against those individuals who don’t fit into society expectations anymore.

Meet Gary Brackett

Gary Brackett was born with a love of competition and a will to win. By all accounts, he has already lived a life that most athletes (and even non-athletes) only dream of. If you know anything about football, it’s likely that you know his name. You may remember his impressive stats (he still holds the record for most individual tackles in a Super Bowl). But he is best known for his unwavering passion, unmatched energy and unrelenting work ethic that transformed this “underdog” into a Captain of a World Championship Team.   Since his “retirement” (from football), Brackett has continued tackling opportunities. After hanging up his jersey, he received his MBA from George Washington University and founded Brackett Restaurant Group.  During his time as a restaurateur, he realized the critical ingredients to success, as well as the potential pitfalls to avoid failure.  His own experience, coupled with his obsession with uncovering “hacks” and “secrets” of the world’s most successful leaders and businesses, lead him to create his own signature framework.  He uses the framework as a tool to guide his clients through actionable steps with measurable results.  His training helps clients align themselves with their vision, become crystal clear on their desired outcomes, and unlock the champions they are inside of their organizations.    Brackett has mentored and empowered thousands of small business owners and professionals to realize their value, maximize their potential, and begin to thrive in business and in life.
