Les Brown Quotes On Life, Success And Inspiration

On February 17, 1945, Leslie Calvin “Les” Brown was born. He is a political figure and motivational speaker from the United States. From 1977 to 1981, he served in the Ohio House of Representatives. In Liberty City, a low-income area of Miami, Florida, Brown and his twin brother Wesley were born.

Mamie Brown, a 38-year-old unmarried woman who worked as a restaurant server and domestic helper, adopted him. Brown argues that the label “educable mentally retarded” he received in elementary school destroyed his confidence and self-esteem.

He was the host of the talk shows The Les Brown Show from September to November 1993. From 2011 to 2012, Brown hosted a daily broadcast radio show on KFWB in California. Many of Brown’s speeches claim that when he first tried to break into public radio, he had a string of failures.
