About Ron Rapatalo
Ron Rapatalo, career shepherd, executive, motivational speaker, and podcast host of "Ronderings", grew up in the hustle and bustle of New York City. The son of immigrants, he learned early to seek out a "circle of champions" that would help him uplevel to the life of his aspirations. After advising a generation of leaders to uplevel their own lives and careers by leveraging the people who love them personally and professionally, Ron is now bringing his tips, tricks, and stories to the general public in his book Leverage the People Who Love and Care About You Personally and Professionally.
