About Rodney

Born into a working-class family in Newark, NJ during one of its most tumultuous periods in history, the Newark Riots, Rodney often likes to emphasize that he was born in the ghetto, but the ghetto did not define him.

As a young man, Rodney faced numerous emotional and academic challenges, leading to struggles in his classes. However, during his motivational speeches, Rodney shares how his perspective on life changed and how the support of certain individuals transformed his life.

Driven by his Pick Yourself mindset, Rodney persevered and managed to graduate from high school and college, establish a successful marriage, raise children, and operate multiple businesses.

Rodney Goldston is recognized as a true digital pioneer. At a time when most individuals were still grappling with the application of internet technology and navigating the connected economy, Rodney was actively involved in developing applications for global corporations.

With a degree from Temple University Fox School of Business, Rodney launched his first digital marketing agency, Stealth Marketing, in the year 2000. He provided consulting services to clients such as Subaru America, utilizing his proprietary analytic service, AdTrac, which helped retail automotive dealers save over 180 billion dollars in wasted ad expenses.

Even before the term “click funnels” gained popularity, Rodney created his own platform, constructing digital landing pages and funnels for Wells Fargo and MetLife mortgage operations. Through these efforts, he personally facilitated millions of dollars in loans across the United States.

Rodney firmly believes in doing meaningful work for individuals who genuinely care. His involvement in educating minorities about prostate cancer alongside doctors from the University of Pennsylvania Hospital has earned him recognition, with his contributions being published in The National Library of Medicine.

Through his renowned program, Pick Yourself, Rodney inspires people to pursue their passions. His motivational talks guide individuals in discovering new ways of thinking, driving innovation, and approaching life’s challenges with a fresh perspective.

Having experienced the entrepreneurial journey firsthand, Rodney understands the importance of perseverance. He has triumphed over poverty, endured losses due to corporate restructuring and the Great Recession, and even defeated cancer.

Rodney has taken risks numerous times, starting anew from scratch without ever mentioning his setbacks. His unwavering dedication and resilience have been instrumental in his continued success.

With over 26 years of marriage, Rodney takes immense pride in his accomplishments as a husband, father, and son.

Today, Rodney primarily serves by offering consulting, speaking engagements, and coaching services.

He is a distinguished graduate of Temple University’s esteemed Fox School of Business and is currently pursuing an MBA. Rodney is verified, street certified, and committed to helping individuals liberate their minds!
