Isaac Lidsky has quite the list of achievements from over the years. He was a child television star as “Weasel” on “Saved By The Bell: The New Class”, graduated from Harvard at 19, co-founded a technology company that sold for $230 million, and was a US Justice Department Lawyer where he argued over a dozen appeals in federal court on behalf of the United States and never lost a case. Isaac’s TED Talk has been viewed more than two million times and his book, Eyes Wide Open, is a New York Times best seller. In 2011 Isaac and a partner purchased ODC Construction and have grown it from $11 million in revenue to over $150 million. It may surprise you to know that Isaac is blind, born with a rare degenerative disease of the retina, causing him to slowly lose his sight between age 12 and 25. Isaac has been featured in numerous media, including Forbes, MSNBC, U.S. News & World Report, 60 Minutes, CNN, Business Insider, Men’s Health, People Magazine, the National Law Journal, the American Bar Association Journal, and many more.
