Jerry Storey started off as a messenger in Kennedy Airport over 30 years ago. Today he is a Managing Director for Regulatory Affairs at one of the largest international transportation companies in the world. He is a master hypnotist, an NLP Practitioner, as well as a Life & Career Coach. Jerry specializes in teaching others how to communicate more effectively. He suffered his first heart attack 22 years ago at the ripe old age of 30 and has a total of 8 stents today. Jerry has been teaching others how to live, and thrive, with heart disease ever since. 

Regarding the adversity he has faced, Jerry says, "We all live with adversity every day. Either the adversity controls us, or we adjust our sails and adapt. I’ve dealt with adversity my whole career. After my second heart attack, I was let go along with a man who had just had a stroke. Piling self-doubt onto financial problems didn’t help. I did learn though. Two years ago I was let go after not being able to fly after a new stent was implanted. I used those earlier lessons to press through and find BETTER employment, even with age discrimination. Be honest with yourself and you can thrive."
