At age six, JB walked into Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau’s office, asked for an immediate meeting, and got it.
At that meeting, he told the Prime Minister, “I want to go to a regular school. Why are you keeping me apart just because I walk with two canes?”
At age 11, he was the first disabled student in Canada to be mainstreamed. At age 18, he gave the valedictorian address at his high school.
At age 26, he earned a master’s degree in social work from Yeshiva University. At age 28, he and his wife launched their own business. In 2003, by age 33, JB was a multi-millionaire.
JB has met with three presidents—Obama, Bush, and Clinton—and advised many members of Congress on health care, consumer rights, the sustainability of small business, issues related to seniors and people with disabilities, and American-Israeli relations.
In October of 2017, Morgan James Publishing released JB’s book, Taking Your Place at the Table: The Art of Refusing to Be an Outsider.
Today, as a speaker, trainer, presenter, and coach, JB helps people and organizations take their own places at a wide variety of tables.
