Lee Silber

It’s easy to see the accomplishments and think Lee Silber is fearless. He left a steady sales job that included the Hawaiian Islands as his territory to open a retail store with his brothers. (One store became a chain and the brothers launched a clothing line as well—but it was a risky move.)

Later, Lee sold his shares in the stores to pursue his passion, writing and speaking despite not having the perfect pedigree and stage fright. He signed with Random House and two of his 25 books became best sellers. Silber spent ten years as a lead trainer for SkillPath before going out on his own speaking to audiences as large as 10,000 people.

Lee never let his fears hold him back and wants to help others reach their full potential, too.
