ToddS

Todd Siddons had a good enough job, a good enough salary, and good enough number of vacation days. He was living a good life in the suburbs of Long Island in 2014. However, there was always a longing for something more- more passion, more time, more travel, and more freedom- and he realized that even with hard work, high performance, and a brand new Masters Degree, that he was going to have less, not more, of those things as he advanced through his career. Upon deciding that “good enough” was no longer good enough, he followed his sister into a network marketing business model, assisting family, friends, and strangers with achieving weight loss, lean muscle growth, or an additional stream of income. In three short years in the industry, he has been recognized on stage multiple times as a six-figure annual income earner, a top earner under the age of 35, and in 2015, received the Rising Star award, given to the fastest growing businesses in the company. Today, he lives in downtown San Diego, hosts seminars and trainings around the country to teach people how to duplicate his success, and remind his audience that the enemy of a great life is a good life. As a speaker, trainer, and coach, Todd’s mission is to empower others to live into whatever their definition of greatness is.
