Kid President - Inspirer
Kid President is otherwise known as Robby Novak, age 9. His executive order: for us all to “treat everybody like it’s their birthday,” every single day.

Why you should listen

In his inaugural video for SoulPancake, unleashed on the web in October of 2012, Kid President -- aka 9-year-old Robby Novak of Henderson, Tennessee -- declared, “I’m not in a party. I am a party.” Now, people from all around the globe are coming to celebrate. 

Kid President began as a collaboration between Novak and his older brother-in-law, Bradley Montague. The pair tag teamed to plant hilarious seeds of wisdom and posted their videos online for family and friends to enjoy. But the videos soon caught the attention of SoulPancake, the YouTube channel and website co-created by Rainn Wilson of The Office. The site has picked up 19 Kid President videos so far, and counting. The most popular to date, “A Pep Talk from Kid President to You,” has been watched more than 6 million times in just its first week online. It features music from Sleeping at Last and Skewby.

Kid President quotes sources as diverse as Robert Frost and Journey, and pens many of his own bon mots. We'll leave you with: "What if Michael Jordan had quit? … He wouldn't have made Space Jam … What's your Space Jam?"
