Omar Periu proudly wears his rags to riches story for others to hear about and learn from. He went from $147 a month at age 21 as a personal trainer to multi-millionaire status by age 31. Omar and his family fled Castro’s regime when he was only seven years old. They arrived in Miami with no money, no family or friends in America and nothing but what they were wearing when they arrived.
Enduring the taunting of other children, the cold winters of Illinois and the obstacle of language barriers, Omar didn’t let it embitter him. Instead, he made the most of his situation. His father, reading from a tattered Spanish copy of Dale Carnegie’s book, “How To Win Friends and Influence People”, taught Omar an important life lesson. “It doesn’t matter who you are, where you’re from or what color you are, you can do anything you put your mind to.”
Not knowing enough about success and its outcome, Omar sought out and studied the masters. He observed the difference between the performance of top achievers, successful entrepreneurs and those barely squeaking by making a living. From there, Omar developed his Zero to Wealth SystemsTM, The Investigative Selling PrinciplesTM, The One Minute Meeting Effective Presentation System TM , and From Management to LeadershipTM skills. Implementing these into his own career, he soon became one of the top professionals in his field.
Omar has been a featured speaker at events with superstars Zig Ziglar, General Colin Powell, Larry Bird, Harvey Mackay, Jim Rohn, Terry Bradshaw, Bob Proctor. Larry King, Robert Kiyosaki, Tony Robbins, Don Shula, Lou Holtz, Denis Waitley, and many many more. He is a member of the National Speakers Association and has been inducted into the prestigious International Platform Association.
His articles are published in Success Magazine, Sales and Management Magazine, Selling Power Magazine, Martial Arts Success Magazine and more. He is a successful author with bestselling books including The One Minute MeetingTM, From Management to LeadershipTM, Get Real/ Get RichTM and today’s #1 book in sales, Investigative SellingTM. Omar has also been featured in three Chicken Soup For The SoulTM books. He has been presented with the Business Man of the Year award for the state of Florida, by the Florida Business Advisory Council and Hall of Fame Speaker of the Year.
