After starting and running several successful companies, I was hit with several strokes on New Years Eve 2016 due to a vascular accident. While this event has changed my personal philosophy and approach to life, it couldn't have been better timed as I didn't have any major commitments at that point. This event did however, leave me unable to walk, swallow and without a voice. As someone who had done a lot of public speaking (click to view one of my YouTube channels
) it was a devastating to not be heard. As someone with a second degree black belt who occasionally taught self-defense classes, not being able to walk, no matter how hard I tried, was a shock that's hard to describe.
Over the course of over two years I fought to regain my abilities and have recovered about 90%. It was a long hard road and while I have a ton of expertise I have no desire to start a new company. I enjoy working with a limited number of clients and helping them solve problems that increase results. What I'm not is a motivational coach... though results tend to be motivational in and of themselves!
