Last June I searched online in an attempt to find the right someone to help me learn the ropes of writing a book as well as developing my speaking. When I found Barry Moltz I knew I had found the right guy to help me. I sent him an email introducing myself and sharing what I wanted to do next in my life as an entrepreneur. Barry agreed to meet with me to discuss it over lunch. Thatâ€™s how my relationship with Barry started.
When you find the right person to help you with your dreams and they are interested in what you are doing, they will help you move forward. If there is anything I have learned in my life as an entrepreneur, the most important lesson would be that you cannot accomplish anything alone!
I have learned so much from Barry and continue to be amazed by how he has transformed himself many times in his career.
This past fall I went with him to Belmont University, in Nashville TN, to see him give a new presentation from the material in his second book, which he has just finished. Belmont University, by the way, has an amazing entrepreneurship program run by Jeff Cornwall, and I would also encourage you to check out his blog, The Entreprenurial Mind.
But back to Barryâ€¦
Since I have met Barry, just a little more than 7 months ago, I have seen him in action, watching him travel literally around the globe and speaking about entrepreneurship and consulting for and with entrepreneurs nationally and internationally! He just recently came back from London, negotiating the purchase of a business there.
Of Barryâ€™s many accomplishmentsâ€“ as a business broker, an angel investor, an author, a consultant and an entrepreneurâ€“ I consider becoming a full-time speaker his most amazing transformation and something I really admire.
Check out Barry’s siteÂ and read his rants.Â
Off to New York City tonight to check out the press conference, and my friend’s, Steve Wolf, unveiling of his rendition of the 1961 Old Yankee Stadium at Mickey Mantleâ€™s restaurant, tomorrow at 11am. Canâ€™t wait!
