About Herb

Hi, I am Herb Silverman. I am a blogger, networker, advocate, leader, just to name a few. But more than that, I am optimistic and positive in my life and scope; other words, for me and my experiences, it’s life lessons learned.

Squarely focused, I explore change and outlook on areas of:

  • leadership
  • productivity
  • salesmanship
  • adaptability
  • humor

In other words, be positive. Be unique. Be different.

(By the way, my monthly emails will show you how to change your perspective and upbeat each and every time, subscribe today.)

Beyond that, I have been a guest speaker, sharing my personal story and leveraging the power of positive thinking. With my distinctive voice and acute sense of humor, I am able to educate, inform and inspire any audience. Drawing from years of personal experience, I teach others how to harness the power of
positive thinking and how to nurture and bolster a “can-do” attitude. I have been featured in numerous articles, as well as on radio and TV.

Wild Card

As I mentioned before, my personal knowledge, born of a unique and totally random occurrence, I suffered a massive stroke on my right side in 1991 when I was 27 years old. More than that, I acquired aphasia, a language disorder that affects my ability to communicate, both written and verbal.

Whoa nelly.



Trust me, after ten days in a coma, I couldn’t walk, talk, read or write. Certainly now, after years of speech therapists and personal progress, well, what can we say! As we go forward, as you can probably imagine, I am still going to make mistakes, errors or be a little bit vague from time to time without even knowing; alas.

It keeps things lively, wouldn’t you say?!

My Biography

I graduated from the University of Chicago in 1985 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics. I went on to earn my Master of Business Administration from Emory University in 1989. While at Emory, I was one of three students awarded the Robert W. Woodruff Fellowship and was the recipient of the Gordon Siefkin Outstanding Achievement Award.

After over twenty-eight years as a management consultant, insurance agent and sales professional, I pursued more passionate objectives cultivating my blog, Unmistakably Herb. I also engage in various committees, volunteering experience, and local charities, I am always involved in the community.
