img-1This empowerment program has been specifically designed to meet the unique challenges faced by students attending Community College. As a former Community College student who was clothed in an inferiority complex, riddled with low self esteem, and was a single father, Kirk Nugent, intimately understands and identifies with the challenges faced by Community College students today.


The “Pursue Your Passion” university tour is a program designed to unleash the greatness within each student through the use of critical success factors that are generally not taught within the confines of a classroom. Through the use of his award winning poetry, uncanny wit and personal stories of struggles and triumphs, Kirk Nugent delivers a highly entertaining yet deeply moving presentation that leaves each student not only feeling but “knowing” that there is no such thing as an impossible dream.

This program is about being true to yourself, going after what’s in your heart and not letting someone else dictate to you their pre- assigned agenda of what you ought to be in life.
Kirk Nugent speaks directly to the heart of the audience and gives each attendee the tools to develop the courage that he/she needs to live their dreams.

Here at Kirk Nugent Unlimited, it is our passion to help mold minds into developing a different kind of consciousness. A consciousness whereby people are not afraid to be successful and financially secure. We realize that there is a general fear of the unknown within the corridors of our educational institutions and students are concerned with the quality of life they will be able to enjoy upon graduation.
It is our desire to help ease these fears, while presenting an alternative which will draw upon the strengths and passion of individuals in the pursuit of their dreams. We believe all dreams are achievable whenever you “Pursue Your Passion.”

Recognizing the fact that there is greatness within each of us Award winning Poet and Motivational speaker Kirk Nugent has traveled to numerous Corporate, Military, Service organizations and Educational institutions across the US, delivering a powerful message acknowledging this fact while outlining the framework necessary for you to live life according to your terms.


img-2This program is the cornerstone of the foundation necessary for a successful College experience. The basic philosophy behind “Choose Your Destiny” underscores that each person shoulders the responsibility of choosing and creating their own future. To highlight and illustrate these points we’ve taken the word RIPPLE and broken it down into six key principles emphasizing the often overlooked point that the consequences of each action tends to RIPPLE throughout our entire life.

These principles are so simple, yet through consistent daily actions, they separate the mighty from the mundane and the magnificent from the mediocre. With his unique style of delivery Kirk Nugent crafts a compelling message that students find irresistible, captivating his audiences with emotionally engaging stories of personal triumphs over adversities.

Focusing on issues that are prevalent in the college community,Kirk Nugent zeroes in on the insecurities that accompany low self esteem, predatory relationships, peer pressure and countless concerns faced by the student body.

Speaking on areas of personal Responsibility, Integrity, Persistence, Passion, Leadership and Empowerment (R.I.P.P.L.E.) Kirk brings the audience to a point of realization that, it is in the moment of decision that your Destiny is decided.
