Learn how CEO, Allan Wich thrives after being dead for 26 minutes, and living exponentially with heart disease. True Inspiration!
A life of cardiac challenges and death experiences has given him a unique approach to creating a life of exponential abundance. Allan Wich has become an agent of change, a pivot realist, focusing on leadership, BOLD action, innovation, collaboration and partnering for the emerging entrepreneur, not because it's trendy but because it has been his journey. His transparent approach to personal success and failure, coupled with his great sense of humor, get his audiences thinking differently about the development of their own life and business. Allan motivates his audiences by showing them how to unlock their own individual genius, how to avoid a life of minutia and indifference, and how he experiences a life of great wonder, having emerged from a history birthed in invisibility and unsure futures.
Born in 1961, he began an amazing journey of miracles amidst the unknown. 1964 open-heart surgery, 1966 open-heart surgery, 1974 open-heart surgery, 1986 open-heart surgery and received an artificial heart valve, 2012 cardiac arrest and was dead for 26 minutes-shocked 8 times and received 12 cardiac injections along with an implanted pacemaker/defibrillator. He went bankrupt and lost everything and in the same year, also made a million dollars. He does know struggle but has triumphed over it because of the courage and gratitude God gave him.
Allan Wich is a speaker for the American Heart Association and a retired hotel and hospital designer with 25 years in the hospitality and institutional development industries. He is an entrepreneur having developed companies in direct sales, architecture and membership services. He is the founder of 'The Heart God Gave Me Project', and the 'Prospecting Mastery Institute'.
The two traits that keep him aligned; the ability to both think bold and anticipate. He has always had a large imagination and has realized many goals using his ability to anticipate growth and change, even disruption within his targeted markets.

Rarely does he shy from risk if the idea is in direct harmony with his mission, and if it has the ability to provide exponential abundance.
