4 – You Get a Peak-Performance Expert with a Great Sales Background

Let’s face it. The speaking circuit is flooded with theorists. People who have textbook knowledge but no practical knowledge. Then, there are the successful celebrity speakers who can’t explain how they became successful.

Over the last 30 years, Ruben has read hundreds books on success, sales, psychology, personal development, and peak-performance. Then, Ruben applied his knowledge to create incredible success in several fields. Because Ruben has been a student of success for 30 years, he can explain the principles of success to his audiences. He breaks the success principles into easy to follow steps. His achievements give him the credibility he needs to get his audiences to buy into his success principles.

“Ruben has a unique ability to motivate and challenge his audiences. His compelling story provokes us all to set and reach lofty goals!”

Jack Canfield – author of The Success Principles

5 – You’ll Get an Author Who’s Work is Endorsed by the Leading Experts in Personal Development

Ruben is the author of several books including the critically acclaimed book “The Courage to Succeed,” which has been endorsed by Stephen Covey, Ken Blanchard, Zig Ziglar, Brian Tracy, Denis Waitley, and many other personal development experts.

“Ruben’s story of hard work, dedication and commitment – leading to success in the greatest competition in the world is  inspiring and uplifting!”

– Brian Tracy

6 – You’ll Get a Celebrity Speaker who Co-Stars in the Full-length Feature Film “Pass It On”

Ruben was invited to share his personal experience in the movie “Pass It On,” along with several of the world’s top success experts including Brian Tracy, Denis Waitley, and former CEO of Southwest Airlines Howard Putnam. “Pass It On” is a ground breaking film about how anyone can change their personal or professional life by following universal success principles.

“Your talk was superb. You helped our conference shine!”

7 – Most Importantly, Your People will Relate to Ruben

Ruben is a common man who accomplished some uncommon things.

He realized his Winter Games dream in spite of not being a great athlete. In fact, all his life when kids were picking teams in P.E., Ruben was always the last kid picked.

This is critically important, because your audience will relate to Ruben much more than they would relate to someone like Michael Jordan or Tiger Woods. If someone like Michael Jordan or Tiger Woods spoke to your people, subconsciously your audience would think, “That stuff will work for THEM, but it won’t work for me.” However, after Ruben’s program, people think, “If THAT guy could make it to the Olympics three times, then I can do anything!”

Ruben’s incredible story takes people’s excuses away. People actually buy into what Ruben says because they can relate to him. And isn’t that what you want? For your people to start applying some proven success principles so they can be more productive and get better results?

“Everyone needs to hear your message. Thank you for coming to Cheyenne, sharing your story, providing inspiration, and making our event special.”

Rick Kaysen – Mayor of the City of Cheyenne

“In the 20+ years I have been a member of NAHU, working with speakers during our annual meeting, I have heard and worked with some great ones – Terry Bradshaw, Steve Young, Joe Theismann, Mike Krzyzewski, Johnny Bench, and Lou Holtz to name a few.

After your terrific presentation last week I had many members come up to me and say you were the best they had heard. The long standing ovation you received is a testament to that. I also found you one of the easiest speakers to work with.

I strongly encourage anyone who needs a great speaker to consider Ruben Gonzalez!!”

– Robert Tretter – Former President – National Association of Health Underwriters
