Together, Let’s Create Jobs for Small Businesses!

Jump-Start Your Business & Retirement, Post Covid! Napoleon Hill taught us that Specialized Knowledge is the key to success. I’ve been an Attorney, Accountant and Business Consultant for over 31 years. I want to share some secrets of the rich or informed. My methods are strategic but straight forward, and apply exponentially with our new on-line world.  I’ll teach you how to become an Instant KnowItAll™ so you can start at the top - with credibility. There are basically 7 Hollywood story plots or methods of presenting or telling a story. I practice transactional and litigation law in California. I also worked in various capacities for many celebrities, film and music superstars.

I’ve been praised as “a great lawyer and great thinker”, an expert and an expert-for-experts for years. My approach teaches how to lead, influence the influencers and start at the top. I teach how to sell the truth, not hype. Instead of listing the benefits, I clarify the vulnerabilities. My clients call me an angel, my adversaries call me a monster.

I wrote an article in 2006 predicting the Great Recession. Within months, I was invited to give a speech for the 110th Congress with a neutral analysis with solutions for the benefit of the U.S.A.  By the time the credit freezes and mortgage foreclosures over-took the U.S. and world economy in 2007, I was the Chairman of the CMIS (Coalition for Mortgage Industry Solutions - DC) leading captains of industry, congress, and all major banks (and non-banks) to the HAMP, HAFA and shared appreciation solutions, which saved millions from losing their homes.

I’ll teach you how I stepped up, and in only a few months, became one of the top national experts leading the national debate for solutions to the economy. As my team and I (CMIS) drove the national debate and was the agent of industry change, Tony Robbins put out huge amounts of money to feed the hungry. We applaud him.

You can use the same Instant KnowItAll™ system to restart your business, marketing and retirement, post Covid. In fact, you can super-size it with the power of the Internet with print, podcast, radio and TV promotion.

More examples of my ‘helping people’ motivation:

1. Donated $1,000,000 to Los Angeles Underprivileged Kids: I co-created an education program for underprivileged kids in Los Angeles, and donated $1,000,000 in financial education. I bootstrapped my NFL contacts to obtain the commitment of the then largest financial stock educator in the U.S.A. I received the NFLPA Lifetime Visionary Award 1998, and in 1999 (Retired Players Los Angles).

2.  J.F. Kennedy Victory Awards/Overcoming Adversity: I was the national committeeman (working directly for Susan Lewis Abrahamson and General Abrahamson) creating the Victory Awards at the J.F. Kennedy Center (DC). The Victory Awards nominates 2 disabled (or impaired) persons from each state, recommended by each Governor, who overcame adversity.  (Honoree Patty Duke (Anna Marie), Ben Vereen (Honoree),  featuring, Ed Asner, Tony Curtis, Elliott Gould, Stacy Keach, Cheryl Ladd, Loretta Lynn, Marlee Matlin, Honorary Chairmen, The President and Mrs. Bush, and The President and Mrs. Reagan.

3. Chairman CMIS, Leading Debate to Save Millions of People from Foreclosure: After my statement to the 110th Congress, I became the Chairman of CMIS, and brought key leaders together including billionaire Wilbur Ross to create solutions to the Great Recession. I led the national solutions debate to save 15,000,000 people from being thrown in the streets during the Great Recession. It only took only three (3)  months to be invited to Congress and give his Statement of Solutions to the 110th Congress. Yes, that’s fast, and it starts at the top.



4. Save the Children (Redd Barna):  I appeared on TV two (2) times with the Prime Minister of Norway and Sweden, to support the agenda to save the underprivileged children of the world.

5. Created CMIS Awards: I created the CMIS Awards to inspire major banking, foreclosure and bankruptcy executives and lawyers around the U.S.A. to temper and seek fairness when dealing with homeowners in default, bankruptcy and foreclosure. Reminding everyone that the Great Recession was not the (sole) borrowers’ fault, but a system in need of refinement. We all need a ‘2nd Chance’ to restart.

6. My First Client -  NFL’s John Matuszak:  My first consulting client was with the biggest man in NFL football, John Matuszak, and my best friend Marvin Smith, for the ‘The Tooz Cruiser’ mountain bike. He made me write the contract on a cigar box at the Reuben E. Lee Restaurant in Newport Beach. Just memories, many moons ago.
