Raitis is a motivational speaker, trainer and entrepreneur with a passion for breathing life into big ideas, all while aiming to elevate and inspire your personal and business life. He is the founder and CEO of ThriveCourses.com, and creator of Goal Achievement Academy.
Despite his great success, Raitis comes from humble beginnings. Born and raised in Latvia, Raitis grew up with very little but maintained big dreams. At age 20, Raitis found himself in the U.S. with merely $80, a suitcase, and minimal English-speaking skills. From first touching base in the southern US to making his way to the west coast today, he successfully launched and sold several businesses along the way.
While Raitis certainly has a knack for starting successful businesses, his true passion lies in helping others achieve their goals and reach their fullest potential. After selling his previous business in 2013, Raitis has since dedicated his career to inspiring and empowering others to fulfill their dreams and goals. His current endeavor is building an online platform, ThriveCourses.com, a hub for hosting all of the best experts in one place, providing the tools and resources you need to set and achieve all your goals.
Raitis currently lives in San Francisco. When he’s not working, Raitis enjoys hiking, biking, snowboarding and hanging out in Napa Valley.
