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 who want to become achievers. I’ve been a Fortune100 executive, Silicon Valley venture capitalist, entrepreneur, consultant and business owner.

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 built one business that served clients in 16 countries. I had one significant business 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’ – my DISABLERS. I set out to identify, understand and ‘eliminate’ them. I then realized that millions of others have many of the same DISABLERS – even very intelligent, smart, and successful people. I can help you identify some of your ‘silent killers of success’.

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

I then figured out that my own smartness was getting in my way. I 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. YOU ARE SMART. YOU CAN BECOME MORE SUCCESSFUL!

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). With those insights, I can teach you how to BECOME ANTIFRAGILE & UNSTOPPABLE!

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. I can teach you how to MAKE MORE MONEY. I am developing the unique iMONEY Games and iBUSINESS Games.
