If Book


     So…IF You Knew You Could Not Fail, What Would You Do?
     (In Survival, There is No Choice)
     The Stories are Captivating
     The Lessons are Practical
     The Inspiration is Priceless


Strategies You Can Use

I am often asked, “How did I accomplish all that I have growing a successful business?” I learned and used several strategies which enabled me to achieve an increasing degree of success in my business and for me personally.

Through this book I communicate and offer words of wisdom on how to achieve a higher degree of success both professionally in your business and as well as in their personal life.

I use these techniques personally to coach and train business owners, executives and individuals all around the world. I use them personally and professionally as an owner of a Human Resources and Organizational Development consultancy firm, Pursuit of Excellence, Inc.


Encouragement You Need

As an Entrepreneur I lived by a personal motto: “Success doesn’t come to you, you go to it.”

Although today others may say that I am a shining example of what persistence and dedication can bring, my business accomplishments are intrinsically linked with a long and difficult journey.

When the odds were against me, I found myself with only one option—rise to the occasion and make something happen. I became an expert at that skill and placed it at the core of my personal survival and career.

No, it’s up to you to build your future and your story as you have the ability just the way you want it to be.

With God’s blessing,
