Our Purposeis to empower and connect humanity to spread positive change and elevate social impact.
Our beautiful world has had some tough times over the
last few years and it's time for change.
There is far too much negativity, anxiety, suffering, greed,
violence, racism, and hatred bringing us down.
It’s time for us to swing the pendulum in the direction of
hope, positivity, and love.
Our community continuously makes the world a better place
through our everyday actions of spreading positive change.
MEET THE FOUNDER & CHAIRMAN OF
I SPARK CHANGE
Rick Ornelas is an Ultimate Success Coach™, bestselling author, and founder of I Spark Change.
Rick wasn't always interested in helping others globally, despite being pushed repeatedly in that direction by a near-death experience, family tragedies, and deaths. It wasn't until the ever-worsening times of 2020 when he was anxious, isolated, and desperate that he finally got the wake-up call. His awakening came in the form of divine inspiration and an awe-inspiring spiritual connection when it was least expected. He went from fearful and hopeless to writing a best-selling book, 12 Hours of Heaven; Lessons for a Better World, in under three months while envisioning and creating an incredible future.
Rick is also extremely passionate about coaching individuals and teams. For the past 25 years, he's grown organizations, including start-ups and Fortune 100's on various levels. He's helped both small businesses and multi-million-dollar enterprises flourish and achieve massive success in record-setting time.
He's trained over ten-thousand hours in leadership, organizational strategy, communication, interpersonal relationships, and human behavior. His proven techniques help others level up in all areas while expanding social impact and spreading positive change around the world.
Rick has been featured as an expert in multiple media outlets, including national/international television and radio. He's a regular writer for Lifehack, a guest contributor for various websites, and has inspired listeners across the globe as a guest on over 75 podcasts!
His next book, 12 Hours of Heaven; Time on Earth, is in the works.
