About Tim Harrison

Tim Harrison, Speaker, Founder of EPOG Academy and San Diego native went to Rice University, where he studied Psychology, competed on the basketball team, and served as the President of the Black Male Leadership Initiative. After graduating into a world in crisis with the pandemic and social unrest, he turned down a coveted job offer in Consulting to pursue his life mission: “To inspire and equip people to realize their potential.” This led him to create the non-profit EPOG Academy with the mission to make personal development part of education so that all students have access to top-tier resources that empower them to take control of their future.

The Enjoyable Pain of Growth: A Practical Process for Realizing Your Potential

If we’re being honest with ourselves, each of us is capable of living a life greater than the one we are currently living. When we allow doubt, fear, and lack of clarity to get in our way, we become stagnant and live a life beneath what we are capable of. Perhaps we have tried to make a change, but disappointment, failure, and external obstacles slowly ate away at our confidence until we accepted and justified our current circumstances. The world needs more people who have come alive and are on the path to realizing their full potential.

What People Are Saying…

Hazelanne Prescott, AVID Campus Coordinator

"Tim is very engaging. He pulls you in! I was specifically impressed with the way Tim was able to pull answers from my students. He would ask follow up questions to really get a deeper meaning from the students. I have been teaching for 27 years and I took some pointers from Mr. Harrison’s technique. I would love to have him come speak to my whole group." 

Skye Anderson - Director of Learning & Development at Keller Williams Quantum Leap Summit


“Tim is incredibly insightful and speaks with the wisdom of someone well beyond his years. He possesses the ability to communicate powerful concepts in a way that makes them easy to understand and much less intimidating to take action on. I highly recommend him as a coach, a speaker, or collaborator!”

Dr. Deborah Harter, Associate Professor at Rice University, and Allison Sarofim, Distinguished Teaching Professo

"Tim Harrison’s visit, as a speaker to a class of mine here at Rice University, left my students and me entirely moved by the power of what he had to say and the personal grace with which he said it. They would echo through my students’ papers for the remainder of the semester. And they made of Tim Harrison one of the most impactful speakers I have invited to Rice in my 30 years of teaching."
