With an indomitable spirit and resilience, Rene was fortunate enough to rise above his circumstances and shattered the ceiling of doubt and fear to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. It’s all about accepting personal responsibility.


His journey began as a sickly and impoverished kid in a tiny village on the Island of Haiti. He arrived in the US with two shirts, one pair of pants, five dollars. & unable to speak any English. Now he is living the American Dream.


Today, he is helping individuals from all walks of life to harness the power of resilience, turn their fear into power, and unleash their God-given potentials. He believes the only enemy we need to defeat is the one within us.
