About Polish Peter
a.k.a. that one Polak that started it all! 🙂
Your World is What You Make It!
Polish Peter? Where do I start? 🙂
First and foremost, thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for coming to this site, for checking it out, reading it, listening to the podcast episodes, sharing it with the people in world, or whatever it is that brought you here. I really mean it!
Because time is our most valuable asset and I want to respect that! The fact that you are here reading this, giving me your time, means a lot to me. THANK YOU!
So, you want to know a little bit about me...
I was born in Poland in what I believe is one of the most beautiful cities called Zakopane. You can see for yourself on the picture on the right. During my early childhood, I lived in a 14'X14' room which was our bedroom, living room, kitchen and dining room. Our bathroom was a community restroom down the hall. Yes, that was a lot of fun. 🙂
I immigrated into United States when I was 14 years old and did not speak any English. One of my earliest English language struggles was: Am I Polish (nationality) or polish (state of being polished). Yeah, that was fun as well.
By the way, not sure if you know this but money grows on trees in US, palm trees are everywhere, beautiful high skyscrapers and people driving sports cars and loving life. (that was my perception of US before I came here).
And then I ended up in a small town right smack in the middle of Detroit! Imagine my surprise! lol
Fast forward to where I am today...
I live in a beautiful suburb, about 30 minutes north of Detroit. I own my own consulting and business growth company that works with high 6 figure and 7 figure businesses in about 16 different industries. Few years ago, I've been featured in a Fast Company magazine as one of the "Top 100 most influential people on the internet."
But what keeps be getting up in the morning is the fact that I can help people, that I can have an impact on someone's life, that I can give them that gift of having that "aha" moment, that moment in their life that sparks something new, that drives them to a new way of living, that gives that that hope, that gives them that new life in their business, their family, their life...
And that's why I started Immigrant Masters Unite, a podcast for immigrant business owners and entrepreneurs. It all started as a interviews, talks with other successful immigrants to share our success stories, our trials, our so called "insider secrets" to help you, to have an impact on your life!
And as they say, the rest is history...
So, what I encourage you to consider, is to start with my podcast. If you haven't already done so, listen to episode 1 where I share my story on a much deeper level (in fact, I share some stuff on there I've don't normally share publically). I hope that it will have some kind of an impact on you. That you can see something there for yourself!
Here's a direct link to episode 1:
On a more personal note...
I have 3 amazing kids (as of writing this, they are 13, 9 and 8 - girl and 2 boys) which I love, adore and after God, always come first. My other love is Detroit Red Wings (been a huge fan since I came here in States in '91), skiing, hockey, soccer, reading amazing books, working out at the gym and coaching/helping other. I also sit on a board for an amazing nonprofit called CARE of Southeast Michigan and after you listen to my podcast, you'll know why. 🙂
Last couple of things...
If you have a great story, are an immigrant, own a successful business and think you'll be a great guest on my podcast, hit me up on Facebook and let's talk!
And live your life to the fullest, don't let people tell you what you can and cannot do. You are a powerful human being! Create your own story!
As Anthony Robbins says:
“I challenge you to make your life a masterpiece. I challenge you to join the ranks of those people who live what they teach, who walk their talk.”
