Let’s journey together to ACHIEVE YOUR PERSONAL GREATNESS!


I have worked in the business for over 30 years and reached several highs and lows. I have two master’s degrees, one from MIT, a business degree, an extensive network, knowledge and skills, extensive travel, experiences, and constant learning….and enjoy teaching and mentoring people.

I’ll tell you what you need (not want) to hear – fluff-free, straight talk.

Like many of you, I’ve had successes and failures in life. I have spent tens of thousands of dollars on well-known personal development ‘gurus’ (whom you have probably paid as well!). I had one significant failure that almost bankrupted me. I spent years introspecting, talking to friends, personal development ‘gurus’, and accomplished people to figure out why I had failed. Then, it dawned on me. I realized that I WAS THE OBSTACLE – I was impeding my own success – because of my ‘silent killers of success’. I set out to identify, understand and ‘eliminate’ them. I then realized that millions of others have many of the same ‘silent killers of success’ – even very intelligent, smart, and successful people. I can help you identify some of your ‘silent killers of success’.

I have reinvented myself many times. MONEY magazine, in a two-page spread, called me “The Comeback Kid”  because I’d successfully reinvented myself repeatedly. 

After interviewing 120 professionals from 40 countries for a book I’m writing, I reflected on how I became ‘The Comeback Kid’, … and figured out how to ‘become unstoppable’ when faced with uncertainty and setbacks – becoming better whether I had individual successes or failures (antifragile). I can teach you how to BECOME UNSTOPPABLE! Look in the menu under PROGRAMS.

I also figured out how all of us can make more money – by developing a business mindset and business thinking – whether you are an employer, employee or investor – look in the menu under PROGRAMS. I can teach you how to MAKE MORE MONEY.

I then reflected, researched and figured out why many smart people do not achieve the level of success they expect – and how they can become more successful. I can help many of you smart people figure out WHY you are not as successful as you could be. That is coming soon…

I have an innate ability to ‘connect the dots’, make sense of the world around us – sometimes the obvious – and explain it in simple terms.

I get juiced up when presented with opportunities to make large audiences think and become better, smarter and more successful!


I am very good at explaining the important, complex and necessary things in simple and practical terms – in a conversational tone.

I ‘learned to learn’ at MIT and to expect more of myself, and what I can do for others.
