International Speaker, Best-Selling Author, Personal Branding Expert
When I first landed in Canada, I didn't have any network, track record or relevant experience to help me build my business.

Some interesting stats about me: During the past 20 years, my books have sold close to 2 million copies worldwide. I also have the experience of coaching and training more than 35,000 ambitious people in both one-on-one and group settings. 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. I'm the father of two amazing boys and the luckiest husband alive (happily married to the love of my life, Katty).
