Best Story

Having to reinvent myself following a near death accident which propelled me into starting a business and appearing on the TEDx stage.

Origin Story

I left a career as a litigator following a near death accident that included very serious physical injuries, a traumatic brain injury and PTSD. I started a business with no network outside of the legal community and after being told I should reconsider a career that involved public speaking given my impairments. I grew a big network quickly and this organic networking has led to growing my business and garnering a significant amount of press and media. I love being able to help others realize their own value and break away from a mindset of limitation.
