Coach Kardan is originally from Iran, a New Zealand citizen and resident of Tokyo & Dubai. He moved to Japan in 1991 and started from $7 per hour(¥700) working as a welder in a small factory. He picked up his Japanese language in two months and managed to learn the high-tech welding in less than six months, then his salary was raised to $30 per hour (¥3,000). It was a remarkable achievement for him since he was a homeless kid back home in Iran. He made himself a promise to design a great life and become an example of possibilities. Coach had many dreams and one of them was to become an airline pilot. 

After he worked as a welder in Japan for seven years, he saved enough money to attended a top class flight school in New Zealand and became a commercial pilot as well as helping his family and get them out of Iran. He then met with many of his mentors and teachers learning lots of skills of both business & life. He made a big shift in his life after 9/11 and decided to move from flying to coaching & public speaking.
