Roger Blankenship

It's good of you to stop by...

I’ve started multiple businesses, several non-profits, made millions, lost them, made them again, learned a few things along the way. I’ve really tried to live a normal life, but that just hasn’t worked for me so far. 

I’ve built houses for homeless people in Latin America. I taught Bible stories to Russian public school teachers in Siberia, lectured at the University of Oslo, spoken all over the world to all kinds of groups. I’m a musician,, artist, business entrepreneur, and all around nerd.  I will never stop learning and growing. 

What I’m most proud of is my family – my wife, my three kids, her two kids – all grown now, gainfully employed and mostly sane. Yep – my biggest accomplishment (although I’m pretty sure they would tell you it’s in spite of me, not because of me!). 

So how can I help you?

Doing the Flipping America Radio Show in front of a Live Audience

I make my living in the world of real estate as you can see here. But I’m not passionate about it. It’s a means to an end – like all of my “for-profit” ventures. And that end? Life itself. I love the expression of thought – in prose and poetry, in the arts as well as in literature. I appreciate that expression even where I may not agree. After all, what will you learn from considering the opinion only of those with whom you already agree?  I also love humor and the variety of ways it is expressed. 

I’ve been in the public eye most of my adult life. I haven’t minded, but I’ve always been aware that I needed to conduct myself in a way so as not to offend. Although I have no desire to intentionally offend anyone, I’ve learned that in our increasingly sensitive times, it’s almost impossible to have a sense of humor.  So I’m invoking one of the man rules here: If I say something that can be taken more than one way and one of those offends you, I meant it the other way. OK?

"Roger Blankenship is a tremendously gifted speaker, really one of the best I've seen among many. He has mastery of his material and engages with audiences in a natural way."

What's the Point?

Combining woodworking and fine arts. I call this piece “Mondrian Mockery” 

Hey I’m a public speaker. Need a talk on a topic? I could be your guy. I’ve been a Pastor, a Seminar Instructor, Keynote Speaker, Retreat Facilitator, and a speaker at events of all sizes all over the world. If you have to ask how much I charge, I might not be your guy. This isn’t my primary source of income so you have to make it interesting. But here’s a cool thought. If your cause interests me you’ll find me very flexible on my terms. I need to make a living, but I also want to help make the world a better place. 

I’m also a consultant. Like a famous insurance company says, “I’ve seen a thing or two so I know a thing or two.” Talk to me and tell me what you need. If I cannot help you I’ll be sure to let you know. There;s a link below to schedule a free no obligation strategy session with me. 

Sometimes people just want to know what I think. Yeah I’m surprised by that too. But if you are one of those or if you just want to know more about who I am, Click on “My Stuff.” You’ll see I have a variety of interests.

Sample Topics

Not all topics are created equal, and that’s not a bad thing. The topic needs to fit the setting of course. Bigger audiences need broader topics and higher levels of inspiration. I’ve been a public speaker for 30 years and have prepared and delivered thousands of talks to audiences of all sizes on a variety of topics. When you engage me I’ll take time with you to understand your needs and objectives. Below are samples of just a few of the topics I’ve covered.
