Doug was not born in a slum, nor was he homeless or raised by wolves. While that may make for a more inspirational story, it simply isn’t true. He did, however, win the Dale Carnegie Highest Achievement award as a high school student and was one of the youngest trainers for that organization. He graduated from Northwestern University with a B.S. in speech and a concentration in TV and film. Doug is an accomplished writer having contributed to the Chicago Tribune, Daily Herald, MSN Money, Yahoo Finance, the Seattle Times and has authored several books.
He has been honored to share the stage with Robert Kiyosaki, Gary Goldstein, Bill Walsh, Ron Shimony, Mike Lafido, Jane Garvey and dozens of other experts and authors.
Doug is a rare speaker and trainer who has the skill to align an individual’s goals and passion with their parent organization. With a strong emphasis on action, accountability and sustainable reinforcement AFTER his trainings, organizations are benefiting from the effects of his message months and years afterwards. His flagship system, Bexsi, features an interactive book and accountability system that prevents people from quitting on any goal.
Doug has been featured on CBS news, the Daily Cafe and dozens of radio stations. A former radio host himself on ABC radio in Chicago, Doug had the first real estate radio program in Chicago. He is an avid scuba diver, instrument-rated private pilot, photographer, magician and father of three.
While Doug has amassed a lifetime of experience and success as an author, speaker and media insider, he knows the power of a associating with a world class team. From producing best-selling books, marketing on the largest infomercial network in the country or producing blockbuster Hollywood movies, Doug’s team has done it all and continues to excel with every client and joint venture they align themselves with.
