My speaking career began when I was 8 years old …
I quite often joke that my speaking career began in 1987 when I was the ring announcer for my third-grade elementary school circus but it’s mostly true. It was that first public speaking experience that started me down the path to be the speaker that I am today.
It wasn’t for the reasons that most people might think, however. It was the happiness that I was able to bring to people in that moment and the face that I knew was able to have a positive effect on their life and truly make a difference. It’s the same reason we chose real estate as a career and decided to become a speaker/trainer for many different industries.
We are not just a “tech trainer”, we are here to make a difference in your life and effect real change in the industry. Our vision is to make the industry better by raising the bar of professionalism, helping agents provide better service to their past, existing and future clients by enhancing their level of tech savviness and make sure that everyone has fun while they do it.
We believe that every human being has the ability to learn and adapt new technology into their business. It doesn’t matter their age, their “generation” or how tech savvy they perceive themselves to be. The old adage that you can’t teach old dog’s new tricks is false because this young cat has some old tricks up his sleeve. I will help you get out of your own way.
My wife and I live in my hometown of Rochester, NY with our two-toddler boy’s. Together, we make up the “Maneiro Team” and have been practicing real estate since 2005 with a foundation of family, fun and technology. You can see the kids costarring in many of my video promotions.
In my spare time, I can be seen enjoying the great outdoors and I might have a bit of an obsession for obstacle course racing. My team “Rochester United” and I were featured on The first season of NBC’s show “Spartan-Ultimate Team Challenge”. It was this experience that helped create some of my best keynotes like “6 second legacy”, “Feed the Wolf” and “The Greatest Show on Earth”. It was truly life changing. There is nothing that I do half way and my passion can be seen in all facets of my life.
I like to think of myself as a thought leader, boat rocker, outside the boxer, fear crusher, perspective swapper, career maker, video master, change agent and an overall quality of life enhancer.
