Connor has gone through all realms, from the struggling start-up business to working with top-level companies. He has worked at Apple, leading high-performance sales and operations teams and gaining lots of perspective along the way. He also has a business degree, has strong knowledge of human performance and psychology and has utilized all this to great effect.
While his life and career are shining examples of success, they did not come without bouts of darkness, however. Battling through ADHD, abuse and his parent’s divorce at a young age, Connor had to fight much adversity while trying to figure out his purpose in life.
Entrepreneurial development for him early on came in the form of selling vacuums door to door. Also doing construction work and building sidewalks as time evolved, he turned to opera singing. After attaining a degree in music, travelled to China, Europe and across North America to perform and was successful in it, but didn’t feel that it was his purpose. Things got so rough for him, he was even living in the back of his car, but his drive never died.
Thanks to persistence and will to ensure others can make it out of turbulent times like he did, Connor is doing for other what he managed to do for himself. Give other men a new lease on life and make sure they are accountable for their decisions.
While building his ManTalk brand, he created the Real Talk Summit, a brand-joining promoting marketing and strategy ideas as well as strategic business development for the emerging entrepreneur or business owner. He also created the Performance Mastermind, which has brought together men who run innovative ventures and profit for a purpose. All of Connor’s ventures encourages a healthy balance between your professional and personal goals, helping you achieve both through mentorship and life lessons.
