Spencer Iverson

Developing Your Circle of Influence: Is the Coach Coachable?

Hi, my name is Spencer Iverson and with over 28 years of entrepreneurship experience, I understand the challenges that come with trying to succeed on your own. I’m a “preacher’s kid” who faced doubts and uncertainty about the path intended for me by God. I know what it’s like to fail and to feel overwhelmed and unsure of how to move forward.

That’s why I turned to mentorship and coaching, and it’s what has helped me achieve tremendous success as a self-made entrepreneur, top-selling author, motivational speaker, attorney, business consultant, and personal and professional development expert.

I decided to stop looking at other people’s success and claim my own.  I’ll never forget the moment I said, “Enough is enough,” put my head down, put my ego aside, and went to work!

Now, through my highly acclaimed Worthy of Millions Masterclass program I have been able to help others who started slowly like I did on their entrepreneurship journey overcome their doubts and achieve their financial goals.  Yes, while I have made millions of dollars as an entrepreneur, earned a patent, taken a company public, worked with celebrities and professional athletes, appeared on countless TV shows and in numerous magazines, and was even voted as one of “Atlanta’s Top 100 Most Powerful and Influential Men,” my career did not take off until I found coaches and mentors who instructed me in the ways of personal development.

Whether you’re struggling with financial instability, low self-esteem, or a lack of direction, I will help you find the clarity and motivation you need to succeed. As someone who has consulted and trained executives from small start-ups to Fortune 500 companies and helped thousands of clients just like you, I know what it takes to help you reach your full potential.
