WARRIOR of Effort


Of course, everyone wants to be likable. In business, it usually makes all the difference in your success! So, what makes someone likable? And why are some people just instantly likable? Today we’re talking about likability and how small shifts can create significant results.

Arel Moodie, best-selling author, speaker, and host of The Art of Likability podcast has been a featured speaker at the White House and personally acknowledged for his work by President Obama. He has given many TED talks on topics such as likability and innovation. As a professional speaker, Arel has spoken to over 200,000 people in 48 states and five countries. He’s been quoted in The New York Times, BusinessWeek, Forbes, Portfolio, Fox Small Business, Yahoo! Finance, & USA Today.

Inc. Magazine called Arel a “High-Energy, Motivator” and named him to their “30 Under 30 list” of top American entrepreneurs joining the likes of Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook. Essence Magazine said “Arel should be the poster boy for rags-to-riches stories… He is America’s Top Young Speaker.” Black Enterprise Magazine named Arel as one of their “Tycoons Under 35.” He was also named by the prestigious St. Gallen Symposium in Switzerland as one of the 100 Leaders of Tomorrow.
