ABOUT DR. COLONNA

BUILDING EMPIRES
A PHILOSOPHY FOR THE FUTURE

We are only limited by the things that we allow to limit us. The keys to success and productivity are already in our pocket. You just need someone to show you the lock and encourage you to open the door. I will help you and your team figure out what is coming next and how to shape it.

BUILDING CONNECTIONS

I have fully dedicated myself to bringing my message to conferences around the world. Whether as a keynote speaker or a workshop leader, I will help break through the boundaries that are limiting your team and get them ready to shape the future. Let me and my team help you move from the world of yesterday’s regrets to the world of tomorrow’s victories.

HELPING SMALL BUSINESSES

Being a small business owner, I believe that small business owners are what makes our economy thrive. Small businesses are what make communities run. We are the ones that sponsor the local sports teams and are involved in the schools. We give back, we hire, we foster relationships. All of our employees are from our community. Helping small business owners has been my biggest passion and something I’ve been doing more frequently.

AWARD-WINNING PRESENTATIONS

BREATH NEW LIFE INTO YOUR NEXT EVENT

THE REAL CONNECTION

I developed this interactive presentation while working with NGOs in South America. While there were plenty of interactions between different teams, the connections between them were never utilized efficiently. We worked to establish how to form inter- and intra-network connections that allow for better workflow and results with longer term stability.

EMBRACE THE FUTURE

What is it that is holding you in the present and keeping you from accessing your brightest future? This presentation is built on years working with incubation groups who are trying to stay ahead of the next wave. I will help you and your team figure out, not just what is coming next, but how to shape what is coming next.

THE XYZs OF SALES

We all know how to start a sale, but what are the final steps that only the most successful salespeople know about? Using my patented Beyond Closing techniques, this workshop will help your sales team learn how to leverage their sales into the future and feel great about the work that they are doing, both for themselves and their clients.

Mastermind Groups & Online Meetings

It’s really the idea to build a community of CEOs that work together and collaborate and learn. When you surround yourself with other like-minded entrepeneurs, the ideas start to really flow. But it’s all about taking the action after, and then working with to help you keep you more accountable on a monthly basis, so that you could continue that path. Our goal is to help CEOs take things to the next level, but to have fun too. It’s not all about business. Business can be fun. It should be enjoyable. We all deserve to live out our passion, whatever it is for each individual
