auditioned as a speaker for our annual company convention. We had three
positions open for a motivational speaker, a marketing trainer, and someone to
create and lead a personal development seminar for our practitioners. We were
so impressed by his audition that we gave him all three speaking positions at
the convention and then sent him on the road with a seminar he designed for us
called ”The Journey to Self Mastery”.
In the year that
followed we experienced severe challenges, we went through two presidents and
the founder of the company died. We almost went broke when the second
president squandered huge amounts of money and made some tactical errors. John
came in off the road, rolled up his sleeves and worked to turn the company
help as trainer and in-house consultant we completely turned around within the
year, became profitable and back on track with high morale, great sales and
lower overhead. He played a huge part in turning our Company around"
During this time John was an excellent mentor to me, (Vice President Sales and
Marketing) the C.E.O Lee Wooley, and the C.O.O of the company Dee Frejo.
He implemented a
unique peak-performance meritocracy that produced record-breaking sales and
eventually a much more peaceful environment which was a huge accomplishment
because morale had been at an all time low and the rumor mill was vicious and
out of control.
His work with
our company was so transformational that John was asked to sit on the board of
directors and was later offered the Presidency of the company (which he
declined.) He felt that his work was better done behind the scenes and the
current C.O.O. needed to be the president.
I can say
without a doubt that John is an excellent coach and mentor and his seminars
are unique, entertaining and transformational. He is a very dedicated speaker
and trainer and he has some great ideas. I am proud to recommend him.

The owner was filing
for Bankruptcy. I suggested
that he allow me to look into his situation as a volunteer. Within a
week I saw some glaring problems with regard to a lack of systems,
disorganization, a lack of focus, and a flawed
Immediately they started saving money and the
trustee insisted that Sherman (the owner) hire me. After being hired
I sat in the managers seat until I had created the necessary systems
to run this club more effectively.
The first quarter
after I beginning transformation games the bottom line was up 15%, the next quarter
we were up 40%, and the third quarter we were up 40% again. This
created a saleable business. I then sat down and went over the many
benefits of this club with an old friend of mine, Nick Kapande who
owns Nicks Pro Fitness. The Sale was a win win for all concerned.
Within one year of my looking at Sherman's bankrupt business it was
profitable and sold for a handsome sum of money.
