My name is Rich
I co-authored Bankroll Your Mind – an International #1 Best Seller in multiple business, success, and leadership categories – along with a few other titles in the personal growth space. I host the 10-Minute Mentor with Rich Perry weekly podcast and Daily Minute with Rich podcast and vlog, as well as a weekly Instagram Live Series.
As an entrepreneur, communicating a powerful message to connect with my audience on a deeper level is necessary for the continued success and prosperity of my business. Cultivating this relatable and authentic relationship with my audience is paramount, and it’s one of the many ways I help my clients grow. I show my clients how to develop and deliver a meaningful message, build brand loyalty by creating stronger customer relationships, and design a winning strategy and system to maximize growth.
Growing up in the unhappiest place in America defined my life’s work.
Yes, you read that correctly. It wasn’t written as a hyperbolic statement. In 2014 a major university study found my geographic area to be the “least happy region in America.” I wrote about this in my e-book, Finding Purpose in the Unhappiest Place in America, so I’ll skip the details here but let’s just say that it made for an interesting childhood and coming of age experience. Moving from Queens, New York to a small rural town in Pennsylvania as a young child provided a thought-provoking and insightful learning opportunity that helped shape the person I am today.
I’ve always been eager to help others. Growing up I was active in Boy Scouts and other community groups, which is where I first became a student to the ideals of leadership and matured to understand the value of service to others. It was here, working towards the coveted Eagle Scout award and training for the degree of Black Belt in Martial Arts that I realized the importance of proper goal setting, steadfast commitment, and maintaining clear communication between teammates to ensure success.
Have you ever had people laugh at your dreams?
People laughed at my dreams a lot and I was told to get my head out of the clouds when I tried to talk about certain ideas, but I didn’t let that stop me. Throughout life I had to fight to be heard – battling naysayers, doubters, and haters who tried to hold me back from achieving my goals. Despite the pushback I believed in myself, my message, and my purpose in life to empower others. I found help from amazing mentors, collaborated with and surrounded myself with like-minded people, and advanced through self-education. I remained focused and kept moving forward to connect with more people, communicate ideas properly, and make a bigger impact in the world.
As an entrepreneur or business leader, you have no doubt experienced something similar. Being the person in charge means you’re in the spotlight and subject to severe criticism, ridicule, and doubt from those we had hoped would be our biggest supporters. This can be a harsh reality for any entrepreneur or leader, even one with the best intentions for their customer base. We put ourselves out there to share ideas, services, and products which means we are open and vulnerable for judgement.
If you’ve ever had your ideas or products criticized or ridiculed simply because the person didn’t understand their true value, then you already understand the importance of having a well-defined message and supporting information to provide clarity and address customer concerns. In your experience, you’ve probably also come to realize and appreciate the value of having a trusted mentor or consultant to offer fresh perspective and help solve costly problems that surface.
Working with me means you’ll get to tap into over 20 years of experience leading unified teams, implementing marketing strategy and branding, and organizing popular community events and seminars. The respective success of all of these depended heavily on the communication of a clearly defined message to move in the right direction. It also relied on unwavering belief and perseverance to reach the intended goal.
I believe we all have a story to tell and a message to share with our audience. It’s why I do, what I do. This is how I can help you craft and deliver your unique message. And if we decide to work together, we’ll be on the same team dedicated to your business growth and legacy.
