“Wow! That is how I would describe John Halcyon Styn. John recently spoke at the Ventura Chamber’s Economic Outlook Breakfast and truly “wowed” the crowd. His masterful blend of humor, introspection and insight along with his business acumen provided a very different message that was not only relevant, but inspiring. John’s approachable style and open spirit drew in the attendees right from the start and he stayed after the event to speak with everyone who approached him. His unique approach garnered an overwhelming and positive response from our attendees, sponsors and staff and frankly has us all a bit mystified at how we will ever be able to follow it up next year.”
-Stephanie Caldwell, President & CEO, Ventura Chamber of Commerce

“You are clearly nailing life. Right thoughts, right mind, blazing love. Do not stop for f*cks sake.”
