From A Poor Village In Haiti

The Village Hero
The American Dream

The American Dream

Rene arrived in the US with only five dollars, one pair of pants, and two shirts. He didn’t speak English.

He redefined the American Dream in his own terms and achieve it. He discovered that the secret is to be willing to pay the price and stay positive attitude.

While many were making excuses, blaming others, and playing the victim game, Rene chose to burn the midnight oil and work hard.

With only $3, he started his first business in the parking lot of a bank washing cars in Miami. In spite of so many rejections Rene proved success is possible with the right attitude.

The Impossible Is Possible

Today, Rene is sharing stages with global leaders. From classrooms to corporate giants, he inspires hope, courage, and resilience to move millions into action.

He is known for nudging audiences out of their comfort zones. He asks them thought provoking questions and challenges them to confront their deeply held beliefs so they can reach the next level.
