Keynote:  Janine Stange, Founder of National Anthem Girl

Topic:  Be Uncommon

What started with the simple goal of raising awareness for the men and women of armed services became a remarkable two-year journey of planes, trains, and automobiles, for Janine Stange.
When the singer decided to become the first person to sing the national anthem in all 50 states, she encountered unique challenges, unforgettable characters, and experiences that changed her life forever. 

Deciding to accomplish the goal was the easy part. Actually making it happen took countless hours of hard work, courage, and simple faith. 

In her presentation “Be Uncommon", Janine takes the audience along on her journey. She identifies the pitfalls that keep goals hidden in plain sight and shares 'life-hacks' to avoid them. Ultimately Janine helps others uncover their own unique life mission and be inspired to follow it. 

 "Do what you can, with what you have, from where you are.”  This is the theme of her comical, touching, and action-inspiring stories. 

Her speaking and performing range has put her in front of Fortune 500 companies and inner-city schools. From NASCAR to national news, to her weekly Sirius XM appearances, she delivers no matter how small or big the audience.
