My life is TRANSFORMATION.
I’m not into making things a little bit better, I’m into making them the best they can be.
I’m an author and advisor to an exclusive group of CEOs, Wall Street pros and other leaders, on getting what they want in their businesses, careers and lives.
This work began for me nearly two decades ago, when as an associate in Goldman Sachs’ investment banking group, I stepped back from my career and began asking…
How Do You Create The Life You Truly Want?
Back then I felt stuck.
The world had changed quickly, half my office was laid off, and for the first time in my career I was asking, Is this what I truly want?
I didn’t know.
I only knew I had to answer my question—
What Do I Want?
With my Giants cap pulled down over my face I headed to the self-help section of the bookstore thinking, who even goes over here.
That day I left with 33 books and a new obsession for personal development that would lead me to span the book ends.
Researching these topics transformed my life, but also led me to clearly see.
There’s A Lack Of Answers For People Like You And Me
Self-help and personal development is mostly oriented to people aspiring to success.
Yet when you’ve already succeeded there’s a lack of answers for what you do from here.
When you already know how to achieve. You’ve made money. Built great success, how do you take it all the way?
How do you go for what you truly want?
Unleash your potential?
Fulfill your greatest purpose? Find more meaning? Discover that thing you are destined to do?
When I first began researching these topics this seemed incredibly complicated, but over countless hours it became clear.
Doing What You Want
Over a decade, reading thousands of books and writing thousands of pages of ideas, I could see we needed something much more simple and powerful.
Not more ideas, but highly systematic approaches to taking the best ideas and putting them to work.
Following this approach, organizing and putting to work the best ideas, I transformed my own career and life.
After making four jobs changes at Goldman Sachs, as a Vice President I resigned to take time off to explore these ideas, before joining the Carlyle Group as a distressed-debt investor ahead of the 2008 credit crisis.
Then, in 2010 I did something I couldn’t have imagined when I began this work 10 years earlier—I left Wall Street to teach people like you and me what took me tens of thousands of hours to learn.
Today with nearly two decades of top-tier business experience and in researching the best tools of human performance, including training with the masters of personal change, I deliver a broad range of advice to my clients.
With some clients, it’s all business, and our work is all winning.
With others, I’m a trusted advisor on all topics related to getting what they want in every aspect of their life.
In addition to working one-on-one with clients, through my newsletter, books, videos, and consulting firm, BLK, I strive to serve more and more people in creating the businesses, careers and lives that they truly want!
