Dr. Glenn Livingston is the son of two therapists in a family of 20 psychologists, social workers, counselors, and therapists. Shortly after getting his Ph.D. (from the Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology on the Einstein Medical Campus in New York City) Dr. Livingston built a 65 person practice in approximately eighteen months. When people’s symptoms resolved, he invited them into his coaching practice until, five years later, he was working almost entirely as a coach. Glenn generated more than 1,000 referrals and/or new client calls, and also directly supervised many coaches and therapists…
Their companies eventually sold more than $20,000,000 to clients like AT&T, Lipton, Panasonic, Whirpool, Nabisco, Colgate-Palmolive, W.L. Gore, Bausch & Lomb, Citibank, American Express, Hallmark, Hunt Wesson, J & J, General Mills, Ford Motor Company, Novartis, Astra Zeneca, Exxon, and many more.
Their work, theories, and research in human relations and consumer motivation were covered in places like The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Sun Times, the NY Daily News, Crain’s NY Business, The Milwaukee Business Journal, The Indiana Star Ledger, American Demographics, and many, many more…
In 2003 he got fed up with working for large organizations, fired all his corporate clients, and quietly tested the methods he’d developed doing millions of dollars of high end consulting to see if they’d work on small, untapped niches…
Dr. Livingston actually sold $250,000 worth of electronic downloads in psychologically driven niche markets like body language, pet care, games for the elderly, etc., before moving to coaching markets like “Emotional Eating.” He subsequently began teaching these methods, and launched an internet advertising agency which quickly grew to 21 people.
