Become Smarter &
More Successful

Yes, you can become smarter and more successful.

Learn from my experiences (positive and negative outcomes), knowledge, thinking and insights to become smarter and more successful SOONER!

I write, speak, publish presentations, podcasts, newsletters and videos; and conduct interviews, workshops and masterminds.



About me…

I have worked in business for over 30 years and reached several highs and lows but I was unable to achieve spectacular success I expected. I have the drive and the credentials – two masters degrees, one from MIT, a business degree, an extensive network, knowledge and skills, extensive travel, experiences and constant learning….but something was ‘in my way’.

I looked at external reasons and talked to many friends, professionals and accomplished people who gave me advice which didn’t answer my question. I looked into every popular answer to my problem and ended up not finding ‘my obstacle’. I have spent tens of thousands on well-known ‘gurus’ (whom you have probably paid as well!).

Then, it dawned on me. I realized that I WAS THE OBSTACLE – things within me that were impeding my own success. I set out to identify, understand and figure out a way to identify and ‘eliminate’ them. I then realized that millions of others have the same ‘silent killers of success’ – even very intelligent, smart and successful people. One of them was business thinking – a  skill that can be learned by anybody (but most don’t). Additionally, I figured out several reasons why many smart people do not achieve the level of success they expect.

I have built a separate website devoted to teaching business thinking and developing a business mindset – at www.BusinessThinking.com. Each of you can learn, become more intelligent and smarter, and more successful (visit www.iSmartANDSuccessful.com). I have figured out many of these things (often, the hard way), and am on my journey to becoming more intelligent, smarter, a better business thinker, and more successful. I also monitor, distill and share strategies, tools and insights to navigate the dramatic changes from the Covid-19 pandemic, climate change, robotics, automation, artificial intelligence at www.SucceedingINtheNewNormal. I can save you the pain and agony if you are open to learning and applying my insights to ACHIEVE YOUR PERSONAL GREATNESS!
