After 32 years in industry and 26 years in several CxO positions, IIr Ira Miller decided to launch Ira S. Miller, Inc., dedicated to helping business leaders and owners reach their personal and professional goals. Despite his experience, he found his first six months frustrating and non-productive. Today his practice is financially, professionally, and personally rewarding. He is living a life that is in balance, fun, and fulfilling.
He is involved with Consultants Gold to help new consultants (and dissatisfied current consultants) navigate through the initial, sometimes painful, steps required before they start to experience personal and financial success in their business.
