Before any building or structure can be created, a plan must be put into place, including identifying territory and need, creating an identity, and laying the foundation upon which to build.

Instructor Biography

Mr. Leo Pacheco, Entrepreneur, Speaker, Founder of 3 Non-Profit Organizations

Thanks for checking out my courses! Over the past 23+ years, I have gone from managing a fast-food restaurant to becoming CEO of multiple companies and founder of 3 non-profit organizations. I even planted a church and pastored for five years before discovering my true calling of becoming a personal development coach and teacher.

And I'm passionate about it! Helping others find success, build their businesses, grow their dreams, and achieve the impossible is exhilarating!

But, I haven't always had success. As a matter of fact, I was once bankrupt and dirt broke, before learning how to turn my failures into stepping stones and creating 6+ figures and multiple streams of income.

And I specialize in helping others achieve the same.
