David Wood is fast becoming one of the foremost voices in online marketing and lifestyle design, having built a rewarding hobby into a million-dollar online empire that allows him to work and play from anywhere in the world. He was recently voted into the Transformational Leadership Council, along with such thought leaders as Stephen M.R. Covey, Jack Canfield, John Gray, and Marianne Williamson. In 1997, while consulting to Fortune 100 companies in New York, David felt the call to resign as an actuary and follow his passion to entertain and teach. Within a few short years he was attracting 95% of his clients from the internet, publishing the largest online coaching newsletter in the world, and celebrating reaching seven figures in income - all supported by one employee he'd never met. He wrote Get Paid For Who You Are to share the same techniques he has now taught to thousands of people around the world, including students at Columbia University. Born in Australia, David has a home base in San Francisco and spends time in Calgary, New York, and Sydney.
