About Freedom Personal Development

In November of 1996, two college roommates took their passion for helping people succeed and turned it into a company. Roger still finds humor looking back, “we didn’t have some of the details worked out… like how to find clients.” What they did have was tremendous conviction and a burning desire to help others experience personal freedom.

With backgrounds in sales and sales management, the guys began offering programs on Sales Training and Goal Setting. Shortly thereafter, they partnered with The Memory Training Institute, the world’s foremost memory development school. That system has worked out well for everyone involved. Over the last decade, we have continually developed new programs and have consistently expanded our capacity to offer more classes in more cities throughout the United States.

Proud to have worked with these clients


Our co-founder, Roger Seip, explains the approach behind his best-selling book, Train Your Brain for Success.

If you’re looking for a speaker with vast knowledge of what works in business, combined with a gift for teaching those concepts with boundless energy, you’ve found your guy.

Penn Vieau “walks the talk” when it comes to leadership. Over the course of a multi-decade career in financial services, he worked his way from entry level up through the ranks of management, into an executive leadership position.
