Woody Woodward dropped out of high school at 16, was a millionaire at 26, and was broke by 27. Within five years of being nearly bankrupt, he built from scratch a $30 million mortgage and real estate firm. Not only has he made more than his money back, he has gone on to become an author of nine books, award winning film-maker, success strategist, and sought out professional speaker. From personal experience Mr. Woodward understands how to overcome challenges and what drives people to succeed. He has studied and researched over 1000 biographies from a list of who's who of elementary, high school and college dropouts to see what drove them to beat the odds, people like Ford, Carnegie, Astor, Disney, Jobs, Madame C.J. Walker, Rosa Parks, and Bill Gates. His book Millionaire Dropouts was a recent top 10 recommendation by Forbes Book Club.

Before Mr. Woodward was an author, film-maker and success strategist, he ran multiple companies. As a perpetual entrepreneur and product developer he studied the influence of persuasion in regards to buying habits, decision making and product loyalty. He has worked with NASCAR, NBL, NBA, NHL, NFL, Warner Music, Sony, Disney and BMG. In 2002 he acquired five separate licenses for his products for the 2002 Winter Olympics. His products have sold in Wal-Mart, K-Mart, Toys R Us, Sears, JC Penney's, and QVC. US News and World Report featured one of his products he co-designed for its cutting edge technology and interaction with the consumer. Mr. Woodward is a masterful marketer and award winning designer. During his time as a designer he was often recruited by large companies including Mattel, Duncan Yo-Yo's and Radio Flyer. He tasted success at the early age of 16 when he sold his first idea to the leading teen clothing chain Zumiez. He has consulted for many public and private companies setting up factories throughout Asia. Over the last two decades his products have generated over $60 million.

Mr. Woodward is founder of the highly respected Emotional Fingerprint™. Emotional Fingerprint was chosen as one of the leading techniques to be presented to the United Nations to assist them in reaching their millennial goals. Mr. Woodward is a success strategist who works one-on-one with Hollywood's elite as well as top business professionals. He has worked in China, Thailand, Europe, and throughout North America. Due to the effectiveness of the Emotional Fingerprint he has been called in many times to do interventions with people who suffer from addictions such as eating disorders, gambling, pornography, drugs and alcohol and even suicidal patience. His business clients have used the principles in the Emotional Fingerprint to increase their profits, establish a better working environment, helped to retain employees and solve customer concerns. Because of his understanding of human potential he was invited to co-host the popular Freedom Fast-track radio show. He continues to inspire people through his seminars, radio interviews, blogs, and TV shows. His passion for understanding human behavior led him to film eight documentaries on people who overcame challenges and how they achieved success. In 2008, he wrote and directed the award winning film I-ology - Discovering Your Emotional Fingerprint. The film has taken hold and is currently translated in multiple languages including German and French. His newest book Your Emotional Fingerprint has been translated in multiple languages including Korean, Japanese and German.
