Over the past two decades Todd Duncan has built a respected enterprise while continuing to observe and study the lives of achievers who thrive on and off the job. His ongoing discoveries continue to be synthesized into compelling resources for living in a meaningful, enriching, and profitable way. His bestselling books and popular seminars have influenced millions to pursue a generous and abundant life, and have landed on prestigious bestseller lists including the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Wall Street Journal, Barnes & Noble, Amazon.com, CEOread.com, and BusinessWeek.
Todd began his loan origination career at the age of twenty-three and he quickly learned what it takes to succeed amidst the rising pressures and incessant temptations of the marketplace. While Todd was listed in the top one-percent of the industry by the time he was twenty-seven, his world was dangerously out of balance. Eventually, his personal empire of expensive toys and fast living was toppled by a two year cocaine addiction. On his way down, Todd faced up to his shortcomings and thus embarked on a road to recovery and redemption.
Through the support of friends and mentors like Zig Ziglar, Og Mandino, and Ken Blanchard, Todd not only recovered but quickly re-ascended to the top. In 1992, Todd founded The Duncan Group to meet the growing demand for innovative training and leadership in the mortgage banking industry where he began his career. Like Peter Drucker, Dale Carnegie, and Bill Gates, Todd became an innovator who transformed his industry and improved the lives of millions. As a father of relationship-based selling for mortgage professionals, Todd has single handedly developed more successful mortgage professionals and enhances the quality of service they provide in the mortgage industry today.
Today, world-wide audiences praise Todd’s authentic, balanced approach to success because he speaks from a platform of triumph. Todd’s passion is to unlock the potential in every individual crossing his path, and his personal story has given hope to many.
