Funny how life works, the greater your challenges the more awesome your rewards can be…
Improved communication led me to meet some great people and develop professionally in several ways. To put my professional experiences in a nutshell, (I go over them in more detail in my courses) I’ve worked in MANY fields from restaurants, sales, retail, education, health and wellness, technology, leadership sales, Etc. You name it, I’ve most likely tried it! I even did surveys at a mall where I was tasked to approach random people to fill out surveys because one of mentors thought “it would be good for me and get me out of my Comfort Zone (or CZ as he called it). I also spent a year or so “marketing” sun-rooms to people walking around a Sam’s Club…let’s just say I embrace rejection and I learned a lot from those experiences!
Thankfully (more like thank HEAVENS), entrepreneurship has always been my ally and since I was a teenager I’ve always owned something or created opportunities for myself. Landscaping (my first one!), a restaurant venture, technology sales, and even health supplements, and some not so successful enterprises (which I learned a lot from!). I’m now heavily invested in helping small businesses and non-profit missions with transforming and enhancing their Leadership Strategies, Communication Development and Diversity Awareness. – This is what I’m most passionate about!
It’s only the beginning…
As a result of all these experiences and furthering my own education, I was presented with a wonderful opportunity to become a college professor (yep, you read that right) for a local college in Phoenix teaching Leadership, Management and Marketing. This was the last thing I thought I would ever do. This worked out incredibly because I love helping people, and love to teach! What started out as a favor for a friend has become a great passion of mine.
Over the last several years, I was able to watch my students transform and tell me that my classes were one of the best they’ve ever been in. Soon after that, random people shared how “inspiring” I am and how much “I helped them overcome their challenges.” After experiencing this quite often, I decided something MORE needed to be done. This is WHY I created this website, my future online course programs and published my first Interactive eBook: Becoming Exceptional.
Nonetheless, the challenges and daily struggles showed me that anything is possible and anyone can build their confidence to achieve a goal or a dream, because it happened to me.
I just wanted to do one thing – PROVE that it can be done and that I can be the BEST speaker I knew. As a result of my improved speech and constantly stretching and getting out of my comfort zone, I was able to slowly build my public speaking confidence and learn to speak professionally in public in front of hundreds of audiences! From this I had a chance to meet some amazing people! I now speak professionally every week and have had some great opportunities to be on TV, share my passions and hope to inspire those around me to become better and be greater than they ever thought was possible. Seriously, if I can do this – SO CAN YOU.
So far (as of this writing) my work, strategies and development has generated over $5 million in sales for my businesses and clients. I have also been fortunate enough to have worked closely with local and national non-profits to raise over $13 million for their local programs. This is something I’m extremely proud of and continue to work hard daily to accomplish. The community I live in is very important to me and my family.
However, A question was always nagging me…
How can I help many more individuals regardless their background or ability, become MORE successful in their lives by sharing how I did it and show them they can do it too?
That’s when this idea and website was born and now you get to be a part of it to take away all the secrets I’ve acquired, learned and researched extensively. I’ve put in hundreds of hours of reading (I LOVE to read), researching methodologies (that actually work) and into mentors and business leaders that have reached the peak of their lives.
