Corey Andrew Powell Cultural Commentator / Content Producer

Hey there! My name is Corey Andrew Powell. I'm a creative chameleon with a knack for donning multiple hats. From crafting compelling copy and producing engaging content to rocking the mic as a podcast host and weaving musical magic, I've got a diverse skill set that keeps things interesting.

My journey kicked off in 2011 at The Vitamin Shoppe, where I started as a copywriter and quickly found myself caught up in the whirlwind of rebranding campaigns, product development, and retail store expansions. Two years of hard work later, I proudly stepped into the role of Manager of Marketing Copy, steering the ship through the exciting waters of marketing creativity.

After three years of freelancing, in 2019 I joined the incredible team at the National Society of Leadership & Success ( NSLS), stepping into the role of Content Manager and Content Producer for the nation's largest leadership honor society, with over 1.3 million inspiring members.

In 2021 I became the proud host of the NSLS's beloved podcast, 'Motivational Mondays'! How cool is that? In my debut episode, I had the absolute honor of chatting with Tokyo Olympics silver-medalist Raven 'The Hulk' Saunders. We dove deep into the world of professional sports and had a heart-to-heart about the importance of mental health. Our audience has grown exponentially to over 250,000 listeners and subscribers.

My creative life has been an incredible journey thus far, and I’m always intrigued by what the future holds.
