I first met Bud Schulman in 1986 when I was negotiating the purchase of his newsletter, as part of his transition out of consulting. As Bud continued to write for the newsletter, our relationship grew, and he informed me about the Super Schulman Study Group. I was inspired by Bud’s vision and his passion for helping the Schulman Group members become the very best they could be.

Bud first invited me to speak to the group in 1987 and I have continued to speak each year thereafter. The Schulman Group has become a very important part of my life. I have been very impressed by the members, and their willingness to help each other achieve “success through sharing.” I have referred many clients to the Schulman Group over the years and have enjoyed close, personal friendships with many of the members. It has been especially satisfying for me to see the Group grow both in numbers and programs it offers. Most importantly, the Schulman Group has continued on successfully with Ron’s guidance, even though most of the original members have transitioned and a new generation of doctors has taken over.

I was honored when the Schulman Group established a scholarship fund in my name at Erskine College, my alma mater. Each year, I have donated my speaking fee to the scholarship fund, and the Schulman Group has generously matched that donation. With the fund balance exceeding $200,000, Erskine is now able to award 5 annual scholarships from this fund. It is very gratifying to share our success with others to help them fulfill their dreams.
