I sustained mild lead poisoning as a child, resulting in neurological damage. The result was a life of learning disabilities, always struggling to keep up.
But I completed two degrees from competitive universities, then advised Wall Street executives in Asia for 15 years. I later earned a PhD and worked as a university professor for six years. I have started three profitable companies in between.
How did I do it? I have two secrets:
First, I am always learning. I am a constant self-directed learner. Secondly, I have taught myself to how to make concepts simpler so I could understand them. (My third secret is to use adrenalin for everything, but I don’t recommend it because —long term — it kills your adrenal system, which has very serious consequences).
Now I can use these two secrets to help you. By necessity, I developed expertise in making difficult concepts easy for others to understand and I share what I have learned in an easy format. I have coached numerous individuals to become much more successful, including seven people who become multimillionaires through my assistance.
I am passionate about personal development. I have taught myself to speak native-level Japanese, how to make furniture, how to be very creative, how to make my own bread. I have started three profitable businesses (and made many unsuccessful attempts). I have lived half of my adult life outside the U.S. Now I want to share with you the joy of lifelong self-learning, using principles I have taught on three continents.
I think I have experienced an amazing, adventurous life. My career began in product development, then shifted to 17 years as a human capital consultant, then to six years as a professor, with a couple of startups in between. Now I am a writer and a coach. But I have hit some chuckholes along that road, which has slowed me down. My blog contains the advice I would give my past self to avoid those chuckholes.
