Pejman Ghadimi - Reinventing Self Education

Born in 1982, in the middle of a revolution in Tehran, Iran, Pejman Ghadimi was raised in France for most of his childhood, then immigrated to the United States in 1997.  Pejman, raised by a single mother who had very limited resources and as a result, had to become quite resourceful. Due to financial limitations and family obligations, he was unable to go to college, so at a very young age, he worked, learned about telemarketing, which allowed him to earn significantly more than his peers at the time. He learned about banking, rapidly building a name for himself. Within 4 years, with no formal education or specialized training, he had worked his way to Vice President before he left the banking industry to create ventures of his own.

In 2005, Pejman founded VIP Motoring, a luxury lifestyle concierge service.  He developed a trust with clients by exhibiting his passion for what he was doing, providing excellent customer service, and treating them like family. He launched Secret Consulting in 2006, which is a business dedicated to teaching others how to be successful.  He taught executives and business owners how to succeed through leadership training, support, and private mentorship.  Also that year, he launched Secret Entourage, which provided free support, motivation, and inspiration to Generation Y entrepreneurs.  That idea has evolved into a full-blown platform that combines lifestyle with business to bring a new level of innovation.

A bestselling author, Pejman has written 10 books, including his most recent, Third Circle Theory. He has been featured in Forbes, The Huffington Post, YEC, Fox Business, Yahoo News and CNN, to name just a few.
