As a young man, Eli was painfully shy which prevented him from being noticed and going after his dreams. It was psychologically crippling for him where he lacked initiative and held on to his doubts, fears and low self-esteem. He knew he had to do something dramatic if that was ever to change. He went on to read, listen to and devour over 1,000 books and tapes on Self-Help / Motivation which helped him overcome his own challenges and be one of the foremost well-versed individuals on this topic. By studying those that were super successful, Eli realized there was an extroverted introvert that lived inside of him and that he did not have to live with the shyness label that so many callously called him, including himself. Only when he pulled that other hidden side out of himself, did he begin to flourish. The impossible started to turn into the possible. He decided to do the most difficult things that a shy kid could ever dream of and he became the lead Salesman everywhere he went, which depended on him transforming from Painfully Shy to top Sales Guy! Eli Marcus has devoted his life to helping others on the various principles of leading a balanced, healthy, successful, and happy life.
Eli Marcus now travels the world virtually and to live events helping men and women professionally and personally on how to get motivated daily, what pitfalls to avoid and what simple daily habits to follow so they can enjoy the wealth they build for themselves and their families.
