David Wood – Founder and High-Performance Coach at Focus.ceo
Our happiness does not need to be linked to what happen externally.
David Wood is an international life coach, Founder of Focus.ceo, former Consulting Actuary to Fortune 100 companies, and one of the foremost voices in online marketing and lifestyle design. David left his cushy Park Avenue job 20 years ago to explore both the outer world, and his own inner world. Along the way he’s coached thousands of hours in a dozen countries around the globe. He built the world’s largest coaching business, becoming #1 on Google for life coaching, building an email following of 150,000 business owners, and selling $330,000 of product from the stage in 15 minutes. David was voted into the Transformational Leadership Council, along with such thought leaders as Stephen M.R. Covey, Jack Canfield, John Gray, and Marianne Williamson. David is no stranger to overcoming challenges himself, having survived a full collapse of his paraglider and a fractured spine, witnessing the death of his sister at age seven, anxiety and depression. With foreword by Jack Canfield, David is also the author of Get Paid For Who You Are, where he offers insight into creating a life of freedom by following five simple steps.
