He is a business man whereby he runs a coaching enterprise that deals with breaking the premature failure of organisations and mainly focuses on people who are into network marketing.
As a keynote speaker he share the story of his life to inspire people: “He was born from a two room shack whereby eight family member live under one room, where five will sleep on the bed and the three on the floor and when it starts to rain the three will be forced to stand and sleep as the floor will be soaking wet.” The reason for the story is you should not use your circumstances as an excuse why you can’t excel in life; you hold the key to your own future.

You need to disconnect with the world and reconnect with your self eg: take a walk, go to the beach or go hiking to clear your mind.
