He is a long-time business and executive coach who has helped people around the world develop their untapped potential. Eddie has a unique ability to help people develop the listening and communication skills that allow them to become better leaders in their workplaces and in their families .
A New Orleans native, Eddie Esposito’s greatest achievements came after losing his house, two businesses, and his community to Hurricane Katrina. The former high-flying chef, who cooked aboard private aircraft for celebrities and four U.S. Presidents, was forced to move his family to Atlanta. In fact, his new born daughter left the hospital the day before the storm just barely allowing them time to evacuate.
After the storm, Eddie began traveling weekly back to New Orleans to support his fellow devastated business owners. He brought the business owners together weekly to help them sort through insurance difficulties, family issues, and the uncertainty of living life in the wake of tragedy. Through Eddie’s support, every business in the group was able to recover. The lessons Eddie learned ultimately became the founding elements of Asentiv’s entrepreneurial program; The Spectacular Entrepreneur.
Although he no longer cooks professionally, Eddie lives in New Orleans with his wife Heather and their three children; Jorden, Mattie and Amelia. He loves old BMWs, great Italian wines, and cooking for friends, but in reality Eddie spends most of his time going to kids events, shuttling them to school and renovating his home — just like every other parent and entrepreneur.
