What is Break a Rule & Why Should You Subscribe?

My name is Rick Lewis.

I’m a speaker, author, entertainer, and professional development coach.

We’re all looking for our people, those like-minded individuals whose friendship encourages our growth while also celebrating who we already are. And you’re probably wondering, could this be a doorway to finding my people?

Here’s how to tell.

If you agree that:

  • Breaking rules is not only enlivening, but essential,

  • Stretching outside of one’s comfort zone is more fun than watching Netflix,

  • Sharing our gifts with others is what makes life worth living,

—then you’ve probably found your people.

Break a Rule is the culmination of decades of my own personal experiments in professional settings, combined research I’ve conducted into psychology, neuroscience, professional development, and the unsolved mysteries of hair loss (explained by my photo above.)

Break a Rule as a training platform stands on nearly 30 years of experience presenting to individuals from a countless number of industries, cultures, locations, and roles.

My desire has always been to build a community and training system to help professionals consistently deepen their authenticity, experience the joy of growth, and thrive at work.
