I'm a family man, speaker, author, and Leadership and business coach.
I spent most of my childhood during the Lebanese civil war that tore my country apart. Right after high school, I immigrated to the greatest nation on earth and had very few role models in my life, so I turned to books to guide me on my journey. I started to read to Jim Rohn, John Maxwell, Stephen Covey, and observe what successful people do from far away.
Living alone was not easy, I slept on the floor, I spent a lot of holidays alone, I doubted myself and others doubted me. I was bullied for being short, and I was mocked for speaking with an accent. I struggled with anxiety and I dealt with depression.
I struggled with self-limiting beliefs, and I fought the demons in my head for a long time. I thought about giving up many times, but somehow I was able to finish college, work as a health inspector, start food safety business, manage a health department, speak on stages, and start a movement that helps people to reach their goals faster.
The movement called Lead with Integrity, we focus on Integrity, Action, and Accountability. I believe most people fail in life because they lack community, accountability, and resources. Lead with Integrity provides a safe community that encourages people to do the work. If someone is interested in adding more accountability to their life and business, we encourage them to join our Action Takers Inner Circle.
I have a bachelor of Biology and a Master in Business Administration. I studied leadership and personal development for the last 20 years. I coach business owners and high performers and I help them reach their goals faster. I only work with people who are committed, to be honest, accountable and consistent.
My wife and I have two kids, Naseem and Kareem. We live in Fort Worth.
I invite you to join our Facebook community and read our blog. You will learn from leaders just like you who want to be more and do more. Leaders who are committed to lead, to follow and to mentor. They are committed to taking their life, business, relationships, and skills to the next level. Join us.

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently.” Steve Jobs
If you want to piss people off, be yourself. Your inner voice has been whispering in your ears to take more risks, to dare to be crazy, to challenge the status quo, to crush your fears, to stop wasting your life, to stop chasing the masses for a long time.
Society has another plan for you.
