How to Do the Impossible
You can become the type of person who can do the impossible, but it's going to take some work. No matter what your "impossible" is, you're going to have to think like an impossibilist, act like an impossibilist, breathe like an impossibilist...be an impossibilist!

Why Cycling is Like Business (and Vice Versa)
Uphill, downhill, straight away - these are all cycling terms but Andy found out that these temrs can also be applied in business.
Two big wins. From nothing. And now he's returning to the scene of his first to try for his third.
That's Andy Nulman's story in a nutshell. While young in spirit and snappy in dress, Andy Nulman has been creating and leading major media projects for over three decades. Onstage, he can be funny or motivational, he can talk tech or bellow about business...and do so in a way that never fails to cause a stir.
Desperate for work at the age of 23 after being fired from his journalism job, Andy joined a two-night, French-language humour event starting up in Montreal. When he left 15 years later as its CEO and driving force, the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival was the biggest and most prestigious of its kind on earth, attracting more than 2 million visitors over a month-long period. During his tenure, Andy worked with the likes of Jay Leno, Drew Carey, Jim Carrey, Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, Ray Romano, Martin Short, Tina Fey and Adam Sandler, sold multi-million dollar corporate sponsorships and created/ Executive Produced over 150 Festival TV shows, in a variety of languages, all over the world.
Then came Airborne Mobile. In 1999, Andy co-founded this pioneering company in the burgeoning new industry of mobile media and marketing. Most people, including Airborne's early investors, didn't give the fledgling firm much chance to survive its first year. Less than seven years later though, Airborne was not only honored as North America's 4th-Fastest Growing Tech Company in Deloitte's Fast 500 ranking, but sold to Japan's Cybird Holdings for $110 million. What's more, three years after that, he and his partner bought it back. For way, way less. No wonder he speaks about How To Do The Impossible and the Power of Surprise.
As of July 2010, Nulman returns with big, groundshaking plans of change, as President of Festivals and Television to Just for Laughs and its French component Juste Pour Rire. While remaining on the Airborne board with some operational duties on the interactive TXT-TV television network project, his first love Just for Laughs will be his full-time gig. As his title suggests, he will take charge of Just for Laughs/Juste Pour Rire as well as the upstart festivals in Toronto and Chicago, plus the television production arms of the company.
In his spare time, Andy is also an oft-published author (three books and counting, including the breakthrough marketing effort Pow! Right Between The Eyes-Profiting From The Power of Surprise, half-decent snowboarder, gym rat, contemporary art buff, newbie hockey defenceman (a convert after two decades as a goalie) and prolific blogger on lessons he learns.
Other accomplishments include being named one of Canada's Top 40 Under 40 business leaders by the Financial Post in 1997, voted one of the Top 100 Montrealers of the 20th Century by the Montreal Gazette in 2000, and honored as a distinguished recipient of the McGill Management Achievement Award in 2004.
