"I did not set out to be an inspiring success speaker. I did not choose it. It chose me!"  ~John Baumann

Most would give in and give up when diagnosed with Parkinson's disease (or any other chronic illness) at the age of 41.  John made the decision to "Decide Success." 

He had a wonderful life and believed he was fulfilling his "purpose." He graduated from Cornell Law School, and had practiced law for 15 successful years. Then his world was turned upside down. He had no idea how quickly the symptoms of this horrific, debilitating disease would progress. It totally changed his perspective on life.

What no one would see as a positive development, John decided to make one. He worked for seven more years as a full-time attorney. He contributed to several books and wrote one of his own aptly named, "Decide Success-You Ain't Dead Yet." John joined the faculty of the University of Louisville, and was honored as "Most Inspiring Professor."  

But his most important decision was to reinvent himself as an Inspiring Success Speaker and Workshop Facilitator. Now over 15 years later after that first diagnosis, John speaks on topics he knows he is an expert in, and maintains an honest, genuine, real, humorous approach.  He has truly "uncovered his purpose!"
