I am Morgan Rich. I hang out with teenagers who are passionate and want to make a difference in the world. But, who are trapped by all the â€œyouâ€™re supposed toâ€, â€œyou shouldâ€, and â€œplease conformâ€ messages. Or theyâ€™re marginalized.
My clients are the ones who are dying a slow death of compromising and fallling into that place where they think they are the problem. I speak to parents and teenagers about Becoming Yourself, Being Scrappy: the skills you need to succeed in today's world, and Finding your path.
I aim to be a beacon of hope and inspiration williing to help their Real You emerge and blast into the world.
Teenagers have the creativity, passion, and energy to make a huge difference in the world as they begin to live the life they were born to live. â€¨â€¨Playing Huge is all about making this happen.
In my 20 years of experience working with teenagers, the ones in the most trouble are the ones whose parents an all kinds of screwed up, so first and formost, I am a husband and dad. My daily life is full of all the humbling moments, self-reflection, and the joy that parenting brings.
I live in Portland with my wife and 2 kids and our dog. I ride my bike everywhere I can, do as much yoga as possible, and love cooking with my family.

An idea worth spreading
Know Yourself. Trust Yourself.
It is when we have that deep level of belief in ourselves that we are able to take on the world. Without confidence, we miss the lessons life brings us, we spend time wrestling with our self doubt and silly self talk, and we end up not living the life we were born to live. Brene Brown has found that those who feel love and belonging do so because they feel they are worthy of love an belonging. So, lets make sure that kids and teenagers feel seen and understood, so they build that deep belief that says "I am okay", "I am enough", and helps them know that they are ready for the world.
