George A. Santino

Professional speaker, mentor and author of Amazon Bestseller Get Back Up: From the Streets to Microsoft Suites

George A. Santino helps people who want to break down barriers, including self-imposed barriers, to success. Check out his Amazon bestselling book, Get Back Up: From the Streets to Microsoft Suites. Santino has been a fast food restaurant manager, life insurance salesman, Realtor, sports bar owner, liquor salesman, shoe repair owner, real estate investor, software tester, software engineering manager, and Microsoft partner. Santino's life has been filled with many ups and downs. At one point he injured his back so badly it required three operations and led to an eventual diagnosis of Failed Back Syndrome and he was told he would never work again. This was one of the many times Santino was knocked down but he always got back up, eventually landing a job at Microsoft—after being turned down four times—as an entry level lab engineer and retiring twenty years later from his position as Partner Engineering Manager. Since his retirement Santino has embarked on a new career as a professional speaker, mentor to tech managers, and author. When he isn't writing or speaking, he is singing or composing the lyrics to his next song. He has released three CDs, all of which spent some time at the top of the Amazon Hot New Releases list. His book, Get Back Up: From the Streets to Microsoft Suites is available now and is an Amazon Bestseller. For more information on George A. Santino please visit Http://
