Julius Mercer is an educational Storytelling Leader with a strong message...

"REMOVE THE STIGMA". When we most need and seek validation and comfort, supporting us to get through the worst pain of our lives, we are at times confronted with well meaning yet uniformed, purveyors of advise that can be deeply demoralizing. This kind of advice can feed our guilt and shame, stymies or growth and prevent us from achieving success in life. Social stigmas are commonly related to culture, gender, race, intelligence, and health. 

Julius Mercer has intimate and real life experiences with the above mentioned issues. Thus he is launching his

"Success Is In You" tour. He  shares his true life experiences of how he went from fame to rock bottom only to rise again, in an attempt to inspire others to make good decisions ensuring they succeed in life. Julius' novel A "Fire Within You" details his life's events.
