‘”On a beautiful late spring afternoon fifteen years ago, two young people graduated from a prestigious institution. They were both ambitious and full of spunk. Recently, they attended their 15th class reunion.

They had much in common. Both were happily married. Both had two children. And both had started their careers strong, moved around a bit and are gainfully employed. They were enjoying the reunion until they found a difference… a BIG difference. One was a manager of a small department making an average salary. The other was the CEO of a company, earning five times as much, and owned millions in stock and stock options. It wasn’t just about the money… it was also about growth, range of responsibilities, position, power, influence, family harmony…

They say comparison is the thief of joy- but we just can’t help ourselves, can we?

When you look at people earning more, living better, leading the kind of life you know that you should be leading, do you wonder, ”Why not me?” or “What did I do wrong?”

What do some ‘SMART’ PEOPLE do that makes them MORE SUCCESSFUL?


Despite our intelligence and education, do you ask yourself,

“I am ‘smart’. Why am I not more successful?” or, 

“I am already successful. How can I become even more successful?”

Ram is an MIT alum who did.

After 10 years of digging, he found 16 factors that influence the success of highly intelligent people. During this masterclass, he will share those factors with you, provide game-changing insights as to why this happens, and how each one of you can become more successful. No fluff, straight talk (MIT style)!


Many people consider themselves ‘smart’. ‘Thinking and feeling smart’ could come from a high IQ, from an elite education or achievements. It brings 16 psychological factors (we have identified) into play – the “Smart People Problems”. Each of these factors could either be enablers or disablers, depending on the individual. For example, an enabling behavior on factor could be that you recognize your strengths and weaknesses, and team with others who complement you. On the other hand, a disabling behavior could be that you refuse to delegate to others, insisting on doing everything by yourself. There are fifteen other such factors.

  1. Many individuals have enablers that they are unaware of, or take for granted. Identifying your enablers and leveraging them could make you much more successful. But, do you know your enablers?
  2. Similarly, individuals have disablers, some they know about, and some they are unaware of. Identifying your disablers and mitigating them could make you much more successful. But, do you know your disablers?
  3. Particularly after we complete our formal education, and during our mid and late careers, our disablers prevent our greater success MORE than our enablers help us become more successful. This is a very important insight he gained from studying hundreds of people. 

We have proprietary assessments that can diagnose whether each of the 16 factors are enablers or disablers for an individual. That is included with this masterclass.

Of course, we will guide you to leverage your enablers and mitigate your disablers – so you can become an achiever – successful and better than average. Become a SMART ACHIEVER!


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 may have 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 guide you to identify some of your ‘silent killers of success’.

I then found that my MIT credentials and some early career successes had ‘gotten to my head’. I identified several factors that had enabled my achievements while others impeded my greater success (and caused some failures). I then found that many of these factors also impeded the success of  other ‘smart’ people. I hired two psychologists and developed an assessment to help individuals identify whether these 16 factors are enabling or disabling them. The results have been fantastic. I can help you convert more of these 16 factors to enable your greater success. I can guide you to become more successful.

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

 I interviewed 120 professionals from 40 countries for a book I’m writing, and reflected on how I became ‘The Comeback Kid’, and 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’re not as successful as you could be, and how you can become more successful than you currently are – BECOME SMART & MORE SUCCESSFUL.

The way we see it, you have three options.

Option #1:

You leave this page…  or get up from your computer and ignore EVERYTHING I’ve just told you.

Do absolutely nothing… and keep on doing what you’re doing right now.

Go back to your OLD LIFE when you know you can change your career… your business… or your financial life… with just a few mouse clicks…

But for a moment, IMAGINE what your life will be like 5 or 10 years from now – AT YOUR NEXT REUNION. Do you want to be looking back to this time and ‘kicking yourself’ for not taking action?

Imagine, how awkward it’s going to be to hanging out with seeing your classmates, friends or colleagues who attended the Master Class… who are thriving, while you are wondering… “Where would I be right now if I’d taken the class?”

Are you still in the same job, struggling with the same business… trying to solve the same issues that never seem to go away… and wondering how to become more successful?

But if you’d like to UP YOUR GAME and become more successful… you have two other options.

Option #2:

Do it yourself.

Working with all the materials and insights you’ve learned from all the other personal development gurus, courses and books… you’re hoping that the ones you’ve picked go deep enough… even though they haven’t gotten you as far as you’d like.

Or you’re thinking, the knowledge Ram has acquired is out there… and if I work hard, I’ll discover it…. despite the fact that it took Ram years of searching… and lots of study and experimentation… over and over until he eventually figured it out.

Do you have the time, resources and persistence to sustain such a quest? How much success will you miss while you are on such a quest?

Good luck if you want to go that route.

Option #3:

Let us do the heavy lifting.

We’ve done the work so you can work less … and loving it.

And realizing the iSmartANDSuccessful Master Class is one of the best investments you’ll ever make in yourself.

You’ll be taking advantage of the many years of experience and knowledge we have to share.

You can be one of the ‘smart’ ones who recognizes something fantastic when you see it… who gets to become more successful for the rest of your life.

We have done the hours and hours of work needed to get to know the territory… and have become expert guides… simplifying the process… developed the tools, templates and exercises… and developed a system… making it easy for you to learn and apply it to your life.

Not only will you be solving some of the most difficult issues you’ve had to wrestle with… but you’ll be able to share your new knowledge with loved ones and friends… becoming a treasured resource and inspiration to others.

So, grab your spot while it’s still available… all you have to do is Click The “SIGN ME UP” button below.

And fasten your seat-belt, because you’re in for the best ride of your life.


Don’t miss out… this could prove to be the most important event you’ll attend. It could be that turning point that will open the doors to greater success, regardless of where you currently are.

Because of the level of personalization we provide, seating for the iSmart&Successful Master Class is limited. Ram teaches each session and will be available for your Q&A.
