Having seen the extremes of both victory and success as well as struggle and stress, Larry has passionately committed his career to helping others break through and break out to succeed. He believes “Hope is great, but it’s NOT a strategy. Hoping that things might change directions on their own isn’t the best way to lead your life and build your career or business. It’s unpredictable, unfulfilling, and unreliable. Ordinary people, with the right committed and focused coaching, can lead extraordinary lives! Everyone can be empowered to live their life by choice instead of by chance, and experience “The Power of Success by Design!™”
