Want A Dynamic Speaker Who Will Inform, Entertain and Inspire Your Audience?



Whenever I speak to an audience I’m mindful of the fact that people come into the room with many different goals but one main want; they want more of something in their lives. Occasionally, it’s money. But usually it’s something more meaningful to them such as happiness, joy, freedom, fulfillment or passion.

What audiences don’t want is to hear the the same message of personal development delivered in the same way so often that it becomes white noise. They want an aha moment. They want to be inspired. They want to smile and, most importantly, they want solutions. And that’s what I deliver.

I’m passionate about helping people find and live their purpose because I had a front row seat for 30 years as I watched mom pursue her purpose and live an amazing life, while dad gave up on his purpose and lived a very painful life. And as for me, I spent twenty years on three continents searching for my purpose and found it in the most unexpected of places.

My mission is to deliver a message that inspires people to believe that anything is possible regardless of their age, past pain or current circumstances. To believe in their unique gifts. And by the time I’m finished with my presentation I want every one in the room to believe they have a purpose in life. Because in my experience that’s the best way for people to find the happiness, joy, freedom, fulfillment and passion they seek.


Current Speaking Topic


Most of the folks in the audience aren’t gonna know they were even supposed to be looking for their PIGG until I take the stage. But I’ll show them how finding their PIGG is the path to finding and living their purpose in life, based on my 30 years of experience with purpose and what I call, The PIGG Principle.

I’ll introduce them to The PIGG Principle and show them how Passion, Intention, Gratitude and Grace (PIGG), when combined, will guide them to a life filled with passion, personal growth and the opportunity to make a difference in the world. In other words, an authentic life based on using what makes them unique to do work that makes them happy.

During our time together I’ll share stories of the search for my own PIGG in 26 countries on 3 continents and the discovery of my greatest passion and how it led me to my purpose in life. Some of the stories on my journey to purpose will include lessons I learned from:

  • My experiences as a prison guard in Texas

  • Having the business I started in Russia stolen by another prison guard

  • Losing my life savings to African fraudsters and fleeing a hotel in Cotonou, Benin

  • Narrowly avoiding being kidnapped in the Republic of Georgia

  • The traumatic deaths of my parents and the two years of profound grief that wrecked my world

  • The healing that occurred when I entered a bodybuilding competition at 54

  • Freeing myself from a toxic marriage and thriving while ending the relationship

  • Finding my purpose in the most unusual of places

  • Building a new Martin from the inside out that was capable of living a bigger life

  • Living my purpose on a daily basis

My message to the audience will be that they can begin, right now, to live lives filled with passion and purpose regardless of their age, past pain or current circumstances. And my promise to the audience is that I will deliver a message that entertains and inspires them and gives them the tools to create the life they’ve always wanted to live.


I first met this remarkable speaker and life coach at a conference about six years ago. If you’re unhappy with your station in life–if you still have unfulfilled dreams– Martin can help!

I find it beautifully appropriate that Martin is a licensed pilot, because he not only has a gift for helping others take a “10,000- foot view” of the challenges that seem so overwhelming, but he also knows how to take them aloft in pursuit of their dreams!
