(English) Tony Brechkow

Professor Anthony S. Brechkow is one of the best people that I know, and has been a strong influence in my life, from a young age until today. Tony is a veritable master of all trades, as he manages entire apartment buildings nearly single-handedly. No problem is too complicated for Tony. He could be standing in the middle of a blazing inferno, and still manage to think the situation (not problem!) through with a cool head, calming those around him. Tony has been and remains involved in all types of businesses, from the aforementioned apartment building complexes, to bakeries of pita bread and healthy snack foods, to glass companies, and many more.

Back in the early days of the Internet, all of the Internet marketing “experts” told me that it would not be possible to sell saunas on the Internet. I did not listen to these nay-sayers. Instead, I called the most positive person that I know: Tony!

Tony loves to share his knowledge with those that are eager to learn. It is for this reason that he has found the time to contribute his time as a professor at the St. Clair College in Windsor, Ontario. Tony would do almost anything to help a young person succeed in life.

We are talking about one of the most generous people on Earth. If you see Tony and compliment him on his shirt, he will not hesitate to take it off and give it to you. Recently, Tony and I had a nice visit in Panama. Tony got a nice taste of my raw vegan lifestyle, and lost about 20 pounds, with a simultaneous boost in energy. Not that he needed the extra energy… at 77 years old, you would not believe how active he remains. Tony bounced up and down the mountain, and completed more odd jobs than a crew of seven able-bodied locals half his age.

Cheers to you, Tony!
