“Resilience is about recovery and recharging. It’s the capacity to recover and to recharge that ultimately allow you to see not only the value in what may have been challenging you at the time but how you can make use of it.” – Adam Markel
Adam Markel is an international speaker, bestselling author, and executive business mentor who works with organizations and individuals to create high-performance strategies and resilient work cultures that lead teams forward in times of change.
After building a multi-million dollar law firm, Adam reinvented his own career path to become CEO of one of the largest business and personal growth training companies in the world.
Adam credits much of his success to the principles he learned as a Jones Beach lifeguard in New York. He’s found that the kind of leadership, resilience, and high performance that was required to handle 100,000 people on a crowded summer beach (with over 100 rescues each day) equally applies to any business that wants to build a competitive advantage to win.
Adam is currently the Chief Executive Officer of More Love Media, Inc., a company that works with individuals and organizations to build work cultures of greater unity, resilience, and connection.
Adam’s keynotes, corporate workshops, and business mentoring combine his “Lessons from the Lifeguard Stand” with practical business strategies, personal development insights, and a unique delivery style to create a high-energy and impactful learning environment.
Adam’s latest book is the bestselling PIVOT: The Art and Science of Reinventing Your Career and Life. Adam also hosts The Conscious PIVOT Podcast, where he shares his insights on pivoting in today’s fast-paced marketplace.

William Arntz started his professional career as a research laser physicist, working on “Star Wars” high energy lasers.
He then moved on to software, writing “AutoSys”-an automated job control system currently in use by most Fortune 500 companies.
He sold that company, retired, but then decided to make a film: creating, producing, and directing “What the BLEEP Do We Know!?,” an exploration of spirituality, quantum physics, neurology, and outrageous possibilities. The film and the companion book, with editions in over twenty languages, were international hits.
His most recent book, How to Suffer, in 10 Easy Steps, is at first a humorous look at self-help books that promises everything in 5-10 “easy” steps. But as the book proceeds, it dives into the history, methodologies, and techniques involved in dealing with the very human condition of suffering.
William has also collaborated on the new coffee table art book, The (not so) Little Book of Surprises, with his wife, mystic Deirdre Hade.
About the book: How to Suffer…. in 10 Easy Steps
“You gotta be joking – a book on How to Suffer – I do that without any book.”
Exactly! We all suffer, and yet rarely do we address the issue directly. The one thing everyone does is rarely talked about. We talk about the external: events and peoples and conditions that create suffering, but hardly ever talk about the internal: the state of suffering itself. Bringing suffering out of the closet and into the light is what this book is all about.
Author William Arntz takes on the self-help world with his irreverent, poignant, and insightful book on the topic which drives so much of what we all do: Suffer. While self-help promises success, love, and abundance in 5, 7, or 10 easy steps, it fails to deliver more often than not.
Whereas the only thing that is easy to do is suffer. We all do it and we all don’t want to. It’s that easy. But by seeing how we easily fall into suffering, one can take steps to knock it off. Following the easy steps are the slippery steps to end suffering. Yes, we all fall into suffering, but there are ways to get out of the rut. Buddha kicked the suffering habit, why not us?
“Suffering is an internal state that actually has more to do with the soul or the spirit than the body or the personality. So, people tend not to deal with it directly. If you do deal with it directly, suddenly it’s one of those things that now you can move through, and you can really evolve because that’s what it’s there for.” – William Arntz
