Ruben Gonzalez is the only person to ever compete in four Winter Olympics each in a different decade. Ruben started his athletic career at the age of 21 by taking up the sport of luge. He was able to compete in the Winter Olympics four years later, against all odds. At the age of 47, he was the oldest luge competitor racing against 20-year-olds in the Vancouver Winter Olympics.
His story of drive and determination, and his strategy for creating fast results in his Olympic training are now what he shares as time-tested techniques to become unstoppable in business today.

A master storyteller, Ruben uses his Olympic experiences to inspire audiences to think differently, live life with passion and have the courage to take the necessary steps toward their goals – to push beyond self-imposed limitations and to produce better results!
