"You have about three more days left to live. Go home and get your affairs in order."
Many people fear hearing such words. M. Walter Levine, a successful entrepreneur, heard them in 1992 from a New York hospital doctor. "That was pretty frightening," he recalled.

M. Walter Levine
From the streets of Brooklyn, NY, Walter Levine, salesman extraordinaire, has built ten successful businesses. Learn practical successful sales and business techniques from a guy that has done it.Creating successful enterprises, building and training sales forces, rebounding from failure, and overcoming obstacles has given Mr. Levine an extensive base of real world experience. To every program he delivers, Walter applies analogies, examples, and proven solutions that can be immediately implemented.
Early in his career, he was a graduate of the Wilfred Beauty Academy. He worked at the FountainBleu in Miami as well as owning salons. He has worked with Lucielle Ball, Edie Gorme, Barbra Streisand, Phyllis McGuire, Jane Morgan and others.
As a Dictograph burglar alarm franchisee, Walter was the number one sales manager worldwide for five years. Walter grew this business into a multi-million dollar enterprise, which became one of the top 20 alarm companies in the U.S. with over 100 employees that he trained and motivated.Bahama Reality and Dictograph selected Walter to develop and conduct sales training programs for regional sales forces totaling over 4,000 sales people worldwide.
After turning over the management of the alarm business to his son, Mr. Levine mortgaged it all and went into equipment leasing syndication business and expanded into, oil and gas exploration syndication, and real estate syndication partnerships. Walter personally built and trained a 200 person sales force with 10 offices nationwide that enabled the company to grow into an $870 million dollar business.Walter’s forte for overcoming obstacles is not only confined to business. In 1991 Walter was diagnosed with multiple cancers. After a stem cell transplant and taking sea cucumber (complementary dietary supplement from Australia), Walter continues to be in full remission.
For more information regarding the dietary supplement sea cucumber, see www.sea-cucumber.com.
From his work in helping cancer patients, Walter was granted a private audience with Mother Theresa, which increased his desire to help and work with others. There are now over 750 cancer patients that are alive due to Walter’s intervention. In the collage on the right we see Walter Levine being greeted by Mother Thersa. Also on the left are two photos of Walter with his grandchildren as he recovers from his medical treatments (17 years ago), as well as "fun time" photos with some notable people.
Another highlight in Mr. Levine’s lifetime of achievements occurred in May 2004 when he was awarded an honorary PhD in humane letters from the University of Bridgeport. Walter was a guest lecturer and hosted the M. Walter Levine Lecture Series at the University, which had proven to be a campus favorite. Walter’s proven sales training and motivational techniques that contributed to his success and those of the many people he has trained are available to your organization. His practical, “street-smart” approach to business, his ability to motivate others, and his experiences in the health field make him a much sought after public speaker.
(For a stirring rendition of a song created for Walter and many of his friends facing life's challenges, click here for the words and music to "Follow The Light", written by Adam Safir. The words to the song follow.)
Follow the light
into the ocean
there is life
there is hope
Only God knows why
but I have a notion
don't tell me "it's time"
I'm ready to fight
Doctor if you have no cure
you better work that phone
I'm gonna drive that drop-top home
Well they said I was dead
They made my bed
and showed me where to sign
But I moved ahead
and left them lying
Twenty years later
I'm more than fine
Doctor if you have no cure you better throw it deep
I may be dead but I'm not asleep
Follow the light
Follow the money
Now tell me who's the fool?
I live for the day when life so precious rewites your formulas and rules.
Follow the light into the ocean...
