The Ultimate Success Map, with Thor Conklin

Thor Conklin is a business owner & consultant as well as a content-driven podcaster. 2016 marks his 16th year as an entrepreneur. The first company Thor created was a global risk management consulting firm that served the private equity community. His top 15 clients had a combined revenue of $12.7 billion USD and operated in over 100 countries worldwide. His background, in risk management, served him well when he lost 1/3 of his team, in the World Trade Center attacks, on 9/11. Since that time, he has started, bought and sold several multi-million dollar businesses making him a sought after, cross-industrial resource for entrepreneurs and executives in all stages of business.

Thor has a talent for slicing through the noise of everyday distractions and bringing his audience intellectual commodities like his:“Ultimate Success Map”, a simplistic, easy-to- follow guide for individuals who need to break through to the next level of achievement and get the absolute most, not just from their business, but, from their lives.

Thor is gritty, experienced and accessible as he brings to bear what holds people back from realizing their full potential. Through his latest venture, Peak Performance Nation, he teaches the tools, tips, tricks and strategies necessary to be a Peak Performer. He qualifies the psychology of success in one word: “Execution”! “Nothing you’ve learned matters – unless you can EXECUTE”!
