Ty Cohen is an accomplished Internet marketer, personal development coach, mentor, internationally known speaker and author who over a decade ago, took a major gamble with his life financially by quitting his corporate job and starting a business of his own.
That business soon became both an offline and online success generating millions of dollars in sales and totally transforming Ty’s life as well as the lives’ of countless others in just a few short years.
Today he is an internationally renowned Internet marketer, business consultant, speaker, radio personality, personal development coach and author of over ½ dozen amazing book titles, but life wasn’t always all roses for him
From Expected Failure to Celebrated Success Story…
As silver spoons go, Mr. Cohen did not start out as a success, in fact his life started out just the opposite. He was born in one of the nation’s most crime ridden and notorious housing projects, Father Panic Village and with the chronic, life treating disease Sickle Cell Anemia.
Ty soon learned that life is what you make it…. As he likes to say, “Either you accept the fate that was handed to you or you make an unwavering decision to create the one you want.”
At age 12, just shortly after losing his older sister to Sickle Cell disease, Ty got another dose of reality while lying in bed at Yale New Haven Hospital. Just outside of his hospital room door, he overheard one of the doctors tell his mother, in a matter of fact tone “Unfortunately Mrs.Cohen, you should not expect your son to live past the age of 17 due to him having Sickle Cell”
At the ripe young age of 12, death became his reality.
He had nothing to live for, either he would die young from the disease that just took his sister’s life or in the mean streets of the ghetto, either way his fate was to die early like many of his peers.
Accepting that an early death was the inevitable for him, as a teenager he started to live a fast, reckless life but soon, something, something very small and very unexpected would change his life forever…
