TEAM FUN SPEAKING
"Bringing Becca and Floyd of Team Fun to our library was one of the best programs I’ve ever been a part of. Their message of living with an adventurous spirit and finding common ground in our differences really exemplifies what has makes them such a strong team and their infectious energy and great senses of humor had the whole room hanging on their every word. Even if you’ve never seen a second of The Amazing Race, you’ll be a Team Fun superfan by the end of their presentation."
"I have never wanted to follow the norms of the conveyor belt life, and it's fulfilling to prove that an alternative approach works."
- Becca Droz
"I went on the show knowing that it was designed to push you to your limits, it’s designed to trip you up. Staying positive was our way to “outsmart” the race. Plus, it was way more fun to race that way!"
- Floyd Pierce

Their story is unique and so is yours!
How are you applying living F.U.N. to your life?
Freedom to fail. Perfection isn't fun! The foundation of success, discovery and self-awareness is a process of feedback loops where experimentation and small failures lead progressively to better outcomes. Let yourself be free to fail!
Unity among our differences. Rather than try and ignore our differences and only focus on commonalities, we can leverage our differences to become more empathetic, more understanding and a more effective team.
Novelty is necessary. When we interrupt routines, habits and reactions with new experiences, we change our brains and our responses to experiences. Uncertainty is inevitable. What if we embrace funcertainty and lean into the funknown together? It's not easy, but it is necessary.
