Here's a bit directly from Todd:

Here is some personal information about me:
Professionally, I am a business coach, marketing consultant, blogger and social entrepreneur living in Manhattan, New York.

I am the founder and publisher of We The Change and Worldwide Tipping Point. I am a certified holistic health counselor. I am a sought after public speaker who lectures to holistic practitioners all over the country teaching them how to market themselves. I am a producer of the upcoming documentary film The SHIFT.

I am also going through my own journey, and the content on We The Change is certainly a representation of this. I believe that We The Change begins with I The Change, and I try and not only talk the talk, but walk the walk.
