International Speaker, Best-Selling Author, Personal Branding Expert
At the end of my first year in business, I hit a wall. I started getting anxiety attacks, I almost fell into depression, and my IBD (chronic bowel disease) went into a flare.
I was putting in a lot of time, energy, and money to get my name out there and get financial results, without success. I needed to become truthful with myself and examine what I was doing wrong. I realized (in Seth Godin's terms) I was a wandering generality and not a meaningful specific. When I got crystal clear with my true genius and found out who the right audience was for me, I tripled my business in almost a year, and it has been epic ever since.
Over the past 20 years, I have helped 35,000+ professionals go to the next level of success, my books have sold more than 2 million copies worldwide, I have amassed ~200,000 followers on social media, and I've been blessed to demand fees that make most of my competitors jealous. More importantly, I'm helping my audience share THEIR genius and make a meaningful impact in the world.

Some other interesting stats about me: I co-authored the best-seller “Ignite Your Life” with the legendary Brian Tracy in 2016. I’ve been featured on different TV shows and publications during the past 15 years. I managed to place first among 1.2 million test-takers in the University Entrance Exam in my home country in 1997. I was selected as one of America’s Premier Experts™ in 2015. I was featured as a 'Master of Success' on the Wall Street Journal in 2016.
