Q: Why are you the best person to write this book?
A: I have over 15 years’ experience in the field of personal growth and motivation. I earned a dual-degree in Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania and Marketing from the Wharton School of Business. After graduation, I spent eight years at American Express honing my skills in a variety of areas from business management, marketing, and leadership to talent assessment, development, and employee satisfaction.
Facing 25 more years in an unpredictable corporate job to reach retirement convinced me there had to be a better way. I desired both personal freedom and career stability to truly take charge of my livelihood. Right around this time, I also found himself in the Twin Towers on 9/11 when the first plane struck.
Surviving 9/11 was just the push that I needed to properly reevaluate my priorities. I devoted the next three months to a thorough personal analysis of my strengths. Recognizing I was talented in public speaking, writing, coaching, and Human Resources consulting, I left American Express to launch BoldRoad.com. My company inspires people to take action toward working less, earning more, and living a better life through books, live seminars, and personalized consulting.
I’ve shared my insights through appearances on CNN, CBS, NJN, and “Voice of America,” and through interviews with USA Today, the (New York) Daily News, the Denver Post, the Chicago Tribune, and the Boston Herald. The beauty of my new life is that I do all of this work in three days a week while earning more than double my former corporate salary. This leaves plenty of time to enjoy life with my wife Carol and our two kids.
