Omar Periu, President
Omar Periu International
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 Systems™, The Investigative Selling Principles™, The One Minute Meeting Effective Presentation System™, and From Management to Leadership™ skills. Implementing these into his own career, he soon became one of the top professionals in his field.
By the time he turned 31, he owned some of the most profitable health clubs, sports medicine facilities and many other entrepreneurial successes in the United States. From his modest beginnings as a take-it-on-the-chin salesperson, Omar knew the pain of rejection and failure. He also discovered the high of mastering effective presentations, sophisticated closing skills, the power to influence and persuade and most importantly, he is now teaching these unique success systems to entrepreneurs, salespeople and leaders all over the world. Like Omar's experience, having internalized these principles, his students are now reporting their greatest triumphs ever!
Omar's content is fresh and inspiring, his presentations impeccable, and his story unforgettable. He is now referred to as the number one "how-to" Motivational Teacher in the Americas, a world-traveled speaker who has spent over a decade educating entrepreneurs, salespeople, and leaders world-wide. Omar has personally delivered more than 5,000 seminars, workshops and training programs. He has trained more than two million people in more than two-thirds of the Fortune 500 companies.
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 has authored several books like The One Minute Meeting™, From Management to Leadership™, Get Real Get Rich™ and today's #1 book in sales, Investigative Selling™. He has been presented with the Business Man of the Year award for the state of Florida, by the Florida Business Advisory Council. He is on the Board of Directors to Wayne Huizenga's School of Entrepreneurs and Nova Southeastern University.
