Story
Introduction

My greatest passion is to help others successfully create purpose-based careers and businesses. I also enjoy helping organizations to reinvent themselves and to develop and implement compelling strategies. My work has generated $300 million in results. 

I am  the author of Creating You, Inc. I believe now is the time to begin creating your ideal career or business. It doesn't matter whether you are starting, in the middle of, or even towards the end of your career. Security and success will come as you become a known expert in a niche or sweet spot that aligns with four key factors. . 

I am currently the CEO of Breakthrough Practices, Inc., a firm that provides strategy development, product development and strategy execution consulting services. He has worked as a senior management adviser to top government officials and consulted extensively with federal organizations, Fortune 100 companies, small-medium sized businesses, and non-profit organizations. I also worked as an executive for Larry H. Miller (owner of 100+ businesses including Utah Jazz NBA team), Cap Gemini Consulting and Franklin Covey where I led business turnarounds, managed 100+ consultants, and managed 100+ concurrent product development & other project teams.

Most recently, I led teams to plan, publish and launch books, website and a television program. The first book was an overnight bestseller - shattering sales records in the industry. Subsequent books continue to be top sellers in their niche and won top awards. The television series become a local favorite that continues to be rebroadcast.

I recently chaired and inaugurated World Strategy Week 2014 - that brought together top strategy thought leaders, executives and professionals from around the world. I am also on the Board of Directors for the Association of Strategic Planning.

Great content throughout this page, Mr. Willden.  Very informative.  Was hoping you could be of assistance for a start-up venture of mine.  Patent pending on a new consumer electronics product.  Very strong global sales potential with solid margins.  At your convenience, please advise.  BFP, founder of Venture 1440.
