Barry is the man who was completely paralyzed and became a quadriplegic overnight from a rare neurological disease Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS…aka French polio). His journey to regain partial mobility lasted several years and caused him to, as he eloquently puts it, “GO MAD,” his acronym for Go Make a Difference!

Barry built a system to Give One Billion dollars without costing any giver a penny and he is a successful serial entrepreneur in several industries. Since childhood he has been involved in doing things that both bring benefit to people and make money. This means in essence: bringing the unique combination of Barry’s positive purposeful powerful attitude with a zest for LIFE based on JOY. Barry envisioned a site/portal that would enable people to LIVE in JOY, daily. To that end was born.

Barry understands that each day is a gift to be cherished and is focused on sharing his JOY of LIVING with the world. To that end he has founded The JOY of LIVING Institute. This is a primary resource for people wanting to acquire practices, tips, and tools to LIVE in JOY, daily.
