No matter where people come from, they will always dream of making it big out in the world. Terrance E. Dye, a motivational speaker, model, author, and wardrobe expert was once another kid who had dreams of making it far in life. Had he chosen not to pursue his big dreams, Terrance never would have created Terrance E. Dye Presents, his T.E.D. Talk.
Terrance E. Dye came from a small town in Mississippi, and for as long as he could remember, he always dream of becoming an author and model. For a small town, those dreams weren’t normal. Time and time again, people would tell him that it was an impossible task, and the best thing he should do is give up.
However, those voices could not steer Terrance away from something he already set his mind to. In his teen years, Terrance developed a passion for writing and fashion that would carry over to his adulthood and career. He created his own lane and started as an independent entrepreneur, amassing over fifteen years of experience.
Today, Terrance has done more than he could ever have dreamed of. As a freelance model, he has been featured internationally for the cover of Moevir, a Paris-based magazine. He also worked for luxury fashion retail companies like Nordstrom, Brooks Brothers, Johnston & Murphy, and Dillards. His career in retail would fund his dreams.
Terrance Dye also self-published six books, giving him local and national recognition from the radio, newspapers, and television news. He would go on as a guest in several interviews on the famous Grand Ole Opry 650 WSM Radio in Nashville, Tennessee, making Terrance one of the first African-Amer
ican authors featured in the show.
As an author, Terrance Dye did all his own marketing and promotions. He has won numerous awards for his writing talents, such as the International Who’s Who in Poetry, Editor’s Choice Award, and Shakespeare Trophy of Excellence. His works have also been published in several anthologies, which landed him the Noble House Label Pen.
Independently pursuing his dreams for the last fifteen years, Terrance was granted the honor of being inducted into the Union County Heritage Museum for his achievements in his hometown. Using his story as an example, Terrance has inspired the lives of others through his T.E.D. Talk.
Terrance E. Dye Presents is a one-stop-shop for people of all ages to build their self-esteem. Terrance is focused on creating a passion for self-motivation that will develop balanced leaders aware of the importance of self-love, social skills, and grooming. He includes a leadership lesson that encourages an entrepreneurial mindset, allowing the public to express themselves through their gifts, dreams, and what inspires them. Despite the simplicity of the method, it is built on a strong foundation of self-love and self-motivation. Terrance inspires to create a culture filled with positive and passionate people who will influence others.
While he’s impacting the lives of others already, Terrance Dye’s goal is to travel all over the world to share his stories with others. He is also set on starting his own consulting firm to help people develop their skills and help them achieve their goals.
