Zach inspires you to find your inner warrior. You can learn to embrace adversity and challenges and use the warrior traits to become the best and most successful version of ourselves.

Zach describes his own trials and tribulations, successes and failures, and takes listeners along on the wild ride that is his own entrepreneurial journey. In the end, he came out on top because of his ability to face adversity, never quit, and because he has grit. As a former Marine, firefighter, and award-winning entrepreneur, he’s not afraid to admit to his own fears and describe how they were overcome. An added bonus are the stories of others: Walt Disney, Thomas Edison, Elon Musk, the first female Marine Corps infantryman, and more. Zachary’s experiences will help you recognize that the journey is hard, but not insurmountable.

Zach highlights both the intellectual and the gritty reality of leadership needed to win in the 21st Century. He champions the lessons learned from adversity and failures in the same way that “iron sharpens iron”, which develops both the drive and direction necessary to be successful in today’s evolving entrepreneur world.

Chief Robert R. Rielage

The military teaches lifelong skills working as a team, the entrepreneur often is alone in their quest but can fall back on those life skills to keep going when others throw in the towel…Zach does a great job of sharing lessons for those considering the life changing adventure down the entrepreneurial trail or for those who want to learn and grow from their adversities.”

The best teacher in life is adversity. I’ve seen it over and over again mentoring countless startups over the years. The best outcomes are usually found by the companies that have either had the highest hurdles to overcome or the wisdom to know which battles to avoid entirely and find other ways to attack their market. I’ve been fortunate to work with Zach as he’s faced some tough choices over the years – and learn from all of them. Let his entrepreneurial and leadership experiences help guide your journey.
