From a Welfare-Throw-Away-Kid
to Living the "American Dream"
Hi, I'm Howard Partridge. I'm originally from L.A. (Lower Alabama!). I grew up very poor in Mobile, Alabama and there were 7 kids living in a little 600 square foot shack. The roof was so bad on that house that when it rained we had to get out all the pots and pans to catch the leaks! At one point, we lived on a hundred dollars a month from the welfare department. I don't know how my mother did it. I still remember getting Christmas presents from the social workers. When I was 18 years old, I got in a fight with my step dad and got kicked out of the house. I had NO money and a friend helped me scrape up enough for a Greyhound bus ticket to Houston. My real dad (who I had only met twice in my entire life) lived there.
I arrived in Houston with 25 cents in my pocket.
Eventually I became a professional waiter. I worked in these restaurants where we did table side cooking… Steak Diane, Bananas Foster, Caesar Salad – all made from scratch at the table, wearing a tuxedo. But I always wanted my own business. I have always been an entrepreneur at heart. But I still had no money!
Then I met my wife... Denise, Concetta, Antionette Pennella
Now that's Italian! While in New Jersey a friend of the family was tooling around in a little red Mercedes convertible. He was my age (23 at the time). I wanted to know what he did, and I wanted to know if it was legal! I discovered that he owned his own business. When you marry into an Italian family, instead of getting wedding presents like toasters, blenders or a set of dishes, you get cash! We got $3,000.00 in wedding money. As soon as we got back to Houston, I spent that money on starting my own business. My wife was really thrilled about that, let me tell you!!! That's when I started my first company out of the trunk of my car. That was over 29 years ago. November 2nd 1984 to be exact.
"From zero to $30k per month"
Over 13 long years, I got the company up to doing about $30k per month. I was making good money, but I became a slave to my business. If something had to be fixed "I" had to be involved in it. If a client had a question "I" had to be involved in it. I had a stack of client inquiries on my desk that I couldn't get to. People who wanted to spend money with us, but I couldn't get to them. When I finally called them, I got their voice mail. When they returned my call, they got my voice mail.
"Ugh! I knew I had to do something fast!"
That was 1997. I began learning about this thing called "systems" and a thing called a "turn-key" business, and working "on" the business instead of "in" it. I found out about Michael Gerber's book The E-Myth Revisited. I took a week off and went to my favorite place in the world – Destin, Florida and sat on the beach with The E-Myth and a stack of spiral notebooks. I re-designed my business and my life. I then invited two fellow business owners to become partners. We built systems in the business and I implemented my marketing system.
The business jumped to over $800k that year alone!
Since that time, my first business exploded to over $3 Million Per Year and I've owned 9 small businesses altogether. Today I have four. The best part is that my companies are turn-key and I can pursue the lifestyle that I want and reap the benefits of being a business owner rather than being a slave to one. Don't get me wrong, you must work hard to build your business, but if you build it right, it can deliver on some of those life goals you have.
Here's what's most important…
What's more important than my "business success" is that I have helped thousands of small business owners just like you build phenomenal companies. Many of them are realizing their dreams in life and are making more money as a result of implementing my unique, proven methods and staying connected with my programs to stay on the cutting edge.
5 Reasons You Can Believe What I Say…
Reason #1: Reputation I am blessed to have a phenomenal reputation. Recently a new coaching member said "I searched the internet for almost 2 hours trying to find anything negative and I couldn't". My work has been validated by some of America's top leadership experts, and small business owners around the world are having RECORD sales and profits, more free time and their businesses are becoming more organized and predictable. See what real business owners have to say HERE
Some of America's top business trainers have appeared at my seminars. These include Michael Gerber, best-selling author of The E-Myth and American Legend Zig Ziglar. I am the exclusive small business coach for the Zig Ziglar Corporation and the first Certified Ziglar Legacy Trainer in the world.
I was blessed to help Tom Ziglar with the last chapter of Zig Ziglar's very last book Born To Win. In fact, it was based on my quote:
Tom and I even spoke at Cambridge University this past summer.
(I never went to college!)
"Rarely have I met someone like Howard. Someone that not only understands Experiential Marketing, but lives it in the real world every day" – Dr. Joseph A. Michelli, International Branding Expert Best-Selling author of The Starbucks Experience and Leading the Starbucks Way
"Howard Partridge is not only a MEGA successful entrepreneur, but a VERY nice guy too!". (I was blessed to share the stage with Zig Ziglar at Bob Burg's event. Here' Bob on my stage) There is NO QUESTION about my credibility. Reason #2: Experience I started my first business out of the trunk of my car over 29 years ago. I transformed that company into a multimillion- dollar, turnkey operation that practically runs without me. I have a great staff and predictable, profitable systems in place. For the past 17 years, I've helped small business owners around the world revolutionize their businesses. Currently, we are coaching small business owners in 52 industries in 7 countries.

Howard Partridge quoted by Tom Ziglar on The Dave Ramsey Show Howard Partridge has appeared on many tv and radio stations. Reason #3: Education I've studied under the top trainers in the world including Zig Ziglar, John Maxwell (currently being mentored by John), and Michael Gerber to name just a few. I'm a certified John Maxwell Coach, certified Ziglar Legacy Trainer, I've been through Michael Gerber's Dreaming Room (when he was personally facilitating it), Dale Carnegie, and a myriad of training programs. I practice what I preach by investing tens of thousands of dollars each year learning from the best. Reason #4: Systems As an entrepreneur and small business owner myself, I have to implement the most effective methods to keep my own businesses growing. My current companies are experiencing RECORD SALES and RECORD PROFITS! Over the past 17 years, I have developed a proven system for training small business owners.
