Daily Inspiration: Meet Henry Kellem

Today we’d like to introduce you to Henry Kellem.

Hi Henry, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstory.
It all started in Wallace, Eastern North Carolina. I was born and raised in a small trailer down a dirt road with five siblings and a single mother. The trailer had buckets all around for when it rained. We had no running water inside the trailer. To shower, we would take old milk jugs and fill them up with water at a neighbors house so that we could shower with it. Growing up in poverty, I shared every single thing with my siblings. My mother told me I was the man of the house at seven years old. I took that role very seriously and always provided for everyone until this day. After my younger brother got killed at 13 years old, it defined my purpose in life. That’s when I became obsessed with becoming successful. So that I could live a life big enough for the both of us. I graduated college with a Master’s degree on Business Management in North Carolina Central University.

Shortly after, I became good friends with the owner of a prestigious high-end restaurant in North Carolina and we became business partners. Our partnership involved us putting together high-end events.

After a few years of successful events, I was ready for a bigger and more challenging city. That is when I chose to move to Beverly Hills and start a new life here.

Although I came from eastern NC to Beverly Hills, my story – “Dirt Road to Rodeo” is more symbolic of the journey of growth and transformation that we all have to take.

Basically, fixed mindset to growth mindset.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
The biggest challenge I faced was from within. My own insecurities set me back countless of times. Coming from a small town, I had a small-town mentality. I didn’t truly believe in myself until recently.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I teach people how to use their minds to access the power within. I am most proud of the fact that I use science backed techniques to teach others how to use the magic of their mind through my online courses, Spiritual Sunday IG lives, community events, and motivational products such as my gratitude journal which helps people reflect and inspires their ever day with positivity.

What do you like best about our city? What do you like least?
I love the countless opportunities that this city has brought me. Being a country boy, I am saddened to realize that it is hard to find country food.
