About Oumar

My name is Oumar Dieng

I am a motivational speaker, life coach, author, entrepreneur and a family man.  I live in Minnesota with my wife and 3 kids.  I’ve somehow gotten used to the cold weather and love the warm summers and the 10,000+ lakes the state offers.

My Story

I lived in a Red Cross refugee camp after a deadly mob attacked my home and caused me to be separated from my family.  I fled to another country where I reunited with my family and later moved to the U.S. where I had a successful corporate career in the public and private sector.  After overcoming life changing hardships and loss, I learned to harness the power of resilience and positive thinking to shed my limiting beliefs, change my mindset and transform my life.  I now share the lessons of resilience and overcoming adversity that I leaned from my journey so far.  I started speaking and coaching to help people who are facing struggles and just need a little guidance or motivation to get the push they need to take control of their lives and achieve their personal or professional goals.

In 2015, I launched a show called The Motivational Voice Podcast to share tips on motivation and positivity, one word at a time, to motivate thousands of listeners across dozens of countries live the best life they can.

For the past two decades, I worked hard to share my message of resilience and overcoming adversity by speaking on various stages including the Moth stage and other public and private venues. Today, I continue to speak, coach and inspire people in various settings, both in person and virtually.
