As silver spoons go, Mr. Cohen did not start out as a success, in fact his life started out just the opposite. He was born in one of the nation’s most crime ridden and notorious housing projects, Father Panic Village and with the chronic, life treating disease Sickle Cell Anemia.
Ty soon learned that life is what you make it…. As he likes to say, “Either you accept the fate that was handed to you or you make an unwavering decision to create the one you want.”
At age 12, just shortly after losing his older sister to Sickle Cell disease, Ty got another dose of reality while lying in bed at Yale New Haven Hospital. Just outside of his hospital room door, he overheard one of the doctors tell his mother, in a matter of fact tone “Unfortunately Mrs. Cohen, you should not expect your son to live past the age of 17 due to him having Sickle Cell”
At the ripe young age of 12, death became his reality.
He had nothing to live for, either he would die young from the disease that just took his sister’s life or in the mean streets of the ghetto, either way his fate was to die early like many of his peers.
Accepting that an early death was the inevitable for him, as a teenager he started to live a fast, reckless life but soon, something, something very small and very unexpected would change his life forever…
From One, Two Lives are Born!
At an early age, Ty became a father to a beautiful baby girl named Mia, Mia Cohen and because he now had something to live for, she would change his life in a way that no one ever thought possible.
Mr. Cohen spent the next couple of years completely turning his life around, taking “Street Smarts” and successfully starting one business after the other only to never find his true passion until he found the field of personal development and married it with teaching his clients not only how to build a strong business, but even how to start from the bottom up a space that he was all too familiar with.
After creating millions of dollars in sales and successfully working with thousands of clients from across the globe, Ty decided to take his expertise global and has created or consulted with thousands of individuals and businesses around the world helping them to find that missing piece that would allow them to create lasting success in both business and life.
In just a few short years he’s created a formula for success that has literally helped him to accomplish more in less than a decade then most people do in an entire lifetime including;
