Troy Hoffman

The Entrepreneur bug got into me when I was 12 years old. I started “Suds Brothers” Car Detailing Service, passed out homemade flyers, and the business started rolling in. Since then, I have had the awesome privilege to build multiple companies. Along the way, I have been extremely blessed to have incredible Mentors in my life that have poured all of their knowledge and wisdom into me. Thanks to all of their help and guidance over the years, I have been able to found an amazing company with great leaders, which allowed me the ability to build an incredible organization from the ground up to a national scale.

I Founded, Simpluris, Inc. in 2007. It has rapidly grown to 70+ employees, with offices in 3 states; (CA TX & FL) and has administered over 2,000 Settlements and Noticing procedures. This outstanding growth and success was recently recognized by Inc. Magazine; which ranked Simpluris, Inc. at #171 on its 30th annual Inc. 500 list; an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest growing private companies in 2011, 2012 and 2013.

Bob Wieland

Named the Most Courageous Veteran in America & known as an Iconic Inspirational speaker. As a  Vietnam War Army Veteran, Weiland lost his legs to a mortar mine in 1969. After recovering from his injuries he was inspired to become a marathon participant. Over his lifetime he has finished many marathons, often taking multiple days to finish. He is the only double amputee to finish the difficult Kona, Hawaii Ironman race without a wheelchair. He “ran” across America with 4,000,000 steps on his hands, taking three years, eight months, and six days to travel from coast to coast.

When his squad walked into a minefield, a member of his unit stepped on a booby-trapped mortar, Wieland rushed to give first aid but he, too, stepped on an 82mm buried mortar, a round designed to destroy tanks.

He will be speaking at conventions, corporate meetings, military bases, universities, high schools and churches.

A former four-time record holder in bench press, his best lift of 507 lbs was disqualified for not wearing shoes. Bob commented saying, “how can I wear shoes, I have no feet and laughed”. The next day Bob found in his mailbox over 100 messages asking him to be a guest speaker at colleges and conventions.
