John Marty's crazy career includes running businesses to being broke and unemployable. After reinventing himself, he says LinkedIn changed his life.

Guest Biography

John Marty is a Senior Product Manager at Amazon but just 5 years ago, he was working at Best Buy for $12 an hour to make ends meet. After running his own companies for more than a decade, a failure left him broke and desperate at the age of 31 with a baby on the way.

After reinventing himself John developed a deep passion for helping others unleash their true potential. His message and content on LinkedIn, Youtube and speaking to broader audience/community isn't focused around “work hard and hustle” but instead centers around the true essence of living a meaningful life.
