About Me

My Passion and Calling is to Help Others Achieve Success as THEY Define it


Effinger Communications is the vehicle through which I market myself for motivational speaker engagements, seminar leadership, and content writing services. I have been giving my live motivational presentation, "Believe to Achieve - The Power of Perseverance," which is also the title of my memoir (the cover of which appears above), for nearly three decades to a wide variety of audiences across the country . This powerful, inspirational, enlightening, and entertaining presentation chronicles my life having been born without a left hand, but never letting that fact keep me from setting and accomplishing my goals: 

athletically, vocationally, and in life itself. 

I realized at a very young age that I was different from others and I had a choice to make: either sit in the corner of my room and feel sorry for myself, or just go out and do whatever I really wanted to do. I chose wisely. I never let others define who I was or what I could accomplish. This includes playing baseball, football, tennis and other sports (even earning a free-agent tryout with the Washington Redskins as a running back in 1974), and becoming Vice President of several leading national corporations and the owner of my own consulting business. Let me help you and your organization learn how to overcome adversity through the power of perseverance to achieve success as you define it and move from the world of yesterday's regrets or disappointments to the world of tomorrow's victories. 

MY BOOK IS AVAILABLE ON AMAZON.COM - It is easiest to search by author's name


I am an experienced seminar leader who offers more than one workshop topic option to choose from that are just as powerful as my signature motivational presentation. My seminar topics were created to enhance productivity and efficiency, build confidence, 

                                and produce measurable  results.                               

CONTENT WRITING - "The Write Stuff"

Content writing is another service I offer clients by drawing on more than three decades of experience writing copy for print and electronic media advertising, brochures, flyers, newsletters, press releases, and other marketing-related materials, including Facebook content, ghost writing of magazine and newspaper articles, and more. Articles that I either ghost write or author under my own name have been published in National Mortgage News, Servicing Management Magazine, DSNews, Housingwire magazine and online blog, and numerous other print publications, including many local and regional newspapers.

A Philosophy for Achieving Success as YOU Define it

We are all only limited by the things that we allow to limit us. The keys to success, and I mean success as YOU define it, as well as  productivity and fulfilment, are already in our pocket. You just need someone to show you how to unlock the door (or window of opportunity, so to speak), and encourage you to open the door. "Success" means different things to different people. But the key to achieving any success depends mostly on your determination to achieve it, and the perseverance necessary to overcome adversity that is in your path along the way.
