You Are a CEO is a movement that empowers people to take a look at themselves and become a better version of themselves. Life 2.0. Our community is committed to taking ownership of their lives regardless of their past or perceived self limitations. You Are a CEO busts through fears, doubts, insecurities, and negative self talk. Instead, we believe in inspiring others while being inspired. We believe in striving for excellence, creating positive relationships, improving our self discipline and being highly emotionally intelligent.
You are a CEO is dedicated to:
  • Creating an environment where you take ownership of your life
  • Promoting a positive mindset about achievement
  • Educating people about the power of self-achievement
  • Giving people the resources and tools that they can use in their day to day life to develop a self-achievement lifestyle


Our members passionately pursue sharing the message of the movement which is, no matter who you are, no matter where you came from, no matter what you want to do with your life, you can be successful. What does it take? It takes the right information. It takes the right mindset. It takes an understanding of the truths you need to be successful in life and business. Our plan is to prepare you for a self-awareness journey, equip you with principles to identify your true values, and tools to help you achieve consistent performance in your life.


Michael E. Parker, founder of the movement, was born in Oakland and raised in the heart of Richmond, California in the midst of violence and struggles. Many would say he should have been a statistic. But along his journey of hardships and challenges, he made decisions that changed the course of his life and opened doors he never thought were possible. Now, an award-winning entrepreneur, author and motivational speaker, Michael is passionate about giving back and inspiring positive change.
