People love BB, he’s like the father they never had, the brother they’ve always wanted, etc. Audiences rate his services as one of the most influentially-real dynamic experiences of their lives. No joke, it’s like the first time you watched Dances with Wolves, he’s that good! BB shines a different kind of light where ever he goes, bringing a diverse introspection into areas that desperately need some love and attention.

When BB talks, people listen. His no nonsense approach to logic and reason is super refreshing. His philosophy on self-reflection and personal accountability is what separates him from the herd. He is empowering and constructive. His communication style is the reason you will pay him over and over again to sit on the ground with your team.
10. Practical Support
From guided meditation to breathing exercises, he does it all. No ethereal nonsense, no gimmicks. He engages everyone, and leaves no one behind. The wellness modalities that Lucentree provides to leading industries are intentional, holistic, and thought provoking. BB provides technical assistance that means something, you know like “sand the floor” or paint the fence” (RIP Mr. Miyagi).
9. Storyteller Extraordinaire
BB is a master storyteller. His philosophical approach to making critical connections to all people from every walk of life, is what he does. He’s like Bob Ross, but with stories and life lessons (RIP Bob Ross). If you want to hear about over-coming adversity and eating struggle for breakfast, call BB.
8. A Tribal Perspective
Indigenous thought pertaining to family, community, and nature is what the world needs more than ever. His perspectives are sharp, real, and true. There’s all kind of cats out there talking the same old soup just reheated; but there is no one out there doing what BB does…no one!
