2. My city hosted one game of the world cup in (19…. I don’t remember), that day played Mexico VS Germany, I really wanted to go, but I had very little money, so I went to stadium to find a last minute cheap ticket, suddenly a police officer saw me and without saying a word… he took me by the hand and he gave the opportunity to see the game without paying at all. Thank you police officer- you made my day! (PLEASE…Don’t ask me the score…Grrrrrrrrr)

Full Bio

A Passionate Entrepreneur and proud of his Latin background, Raul now resides inBeautiful Vancouver BC.

Admittedly an undeniable Underdog, his incredible survival skills and his Relentless whatever it takes attitude has catapulted him from underdog to accessing and connecting significantly with celebrities, personalities and authorities in virtually every lifestyle field has been a critical element in his success.

After reading the book “The Greatest Salesman in the World” by Og Mandino, he began his career at the age of 8 by launching a highly successful Errand Running business in the neighborhood charging ($1.00 peso per errand).

At the age of 10 he was selling flowers door to door and at the same time he was selling tickets for raffles. Selling Raffle Tickets was his favorite and more profitable business by far.

Just one year later, he became a supervisor in his father’s courier company, scheduling the most time- and cost-efficient delivery routes while developing rapport and leadership with much older staff members.

He learned by trial and error as he built up a skill set and became an unstoppable sales and closer machine. Since then, he has repeatedly demonstrated his ability to launch a successful business with little or no capital.

With his proven “Relentless Matrix” Method, Raul guides entrepreneurs to learn the lessons of change so they can not only survive but thrive and flourish in difficult times.

His entrepreneurial spirit was with him throughout his teenage years, but everything changed when two people murdered his father.

At the age of 20, Raul lost his father and, along with him, his dreams and expectations for the future. He was depressed and lost focus and ran away from life. He was afraid of people. Reality was very painful and he wanted to disappear. And for five years he was lost and confused.

In 1995, Raul was ready to get back to business, launching a retail clothing store with only seventy dollars in start-up capital. It was an immediate success. Business grew exponentially, and soon after he was managing several boutiques selling women’s apparel.

Unfortunately, by 2001, the textile industry had fallen into a recession. Although many of Raul’s suppliers fell into bankruptcy, he was able to use the profits from previous years to keep his business open. He survived the economic crisis, but decided to close his business in 2003, having lost everything, except his faith. Raul began to work with Alex Dey, who is one of Mexico’s best sales trainers, and he soon created his own sales training company.

Another difficult period in his life began with the unexpected loss of his stepfather and good friend, who was living in Winnipeg, a city in Canada, along with his mother and sister at that time.

Raul closed his Training Business and immigrated to Canada to better support his remaining family members. He had to accept an unskilled and undesirable job in order to receive his permanent residency, but he never stopped working toward his greater ambitions.

In 2008, after reading the book The Secrets of the Millionaire Mind, he moved to Vancouver with only $200 in his pocket, no friends and nowhere to stay.

Although the transition was difficult, he was inspired and committed to work with T. Harv Eker at Peak Potentials Training, which is one of the fastest-growing and most successful training companies in North America. (After three interviews he was hired)

All these difficulties and unexpected events have taught Raul to value every moment in life, every decision, and every word. He has learned first-hand about the challenges that immigrants face in adapting to a new culture, trying to learn how the system works and making the necessary connections for professional success and personal fulfillment.

Immigrating to another country requires speaking a foreign language, dealing with a different political and financial system, adapting to a new climate, trying new foods, and (in many cases) even struggling against racial discrimination and prejudice. These challenges can be overwhelming, creating feelings of culture shock and homesickness while making it almost impossible to rent or buy a home, or find a rewarding job.

Despite the ups and downs and all of the challenges he has never given up because of his Relentless Persistence.

Now he has decided to help other immigrants improve their lives by learning how to overcome all the challenges and obstacles that get between them and their dreams. His purpose is clear: to educate and prepare other individuals who are having similar experiences, helping them overcome obstacles and achieve success, however they may define it.

Raul has never stopped trying to expand and improve his skill set.

He has participated in many seminars, courses, and camps covering sales and marketing, leadership, personal growth, health, and other topics. In doing so, he has had the opportunity to travel throughout Canada, the United States, Central America interacting with highly Respected Trainers, including

Bill Bartmann,
Anthony Robins,
T. Harv Eker,
Blair Singer,
Alex Mandossian,
Les Brown,
Zig Ziglar,
Tom Hopkins,
John Maxwell,
among many-many others…….
and How to forget his first Mentor “Alex Dey” The Number One Motivational Speaker in Latin America.
