Your Perfect Start Coach

I started my career as a sales person in a publishing company. My job was to make sure I have enough copies of our bestselling books on the shelves.

I was dusting off books, arranging them and counting them. There are times that I have to bring piles of heavy books from one bookstore to another.

It wasn’t a high-paying job, but it was definitely a good one to start my career.

With that humble beginning, I challenged myself to dream BIG.

While being employed, I never stop thinking about how I would become an entrepreneur and speaker. I attended numerous workshops. I created a blog. I met people over coffee. I read business magazines.

You know, to aspire to become one of the sought-after speakers is quite scary. But, that was my dream.

I was not an eloquent speaker at that time. I didn’t have a story to tell yet. I was just an employee dreaming to become a successful entrepreneur and speaker someday.

Handling marketing problems taught me a lot of lessons about people, technology and business. Then, I found myself sharing those stories to my audience.

Today, I have already spoken to over 15,000 people.

What is my secret weapon?

I was coached.
