Eric Erenstoft , An Executive, Entrepreneur, Business owner, Strategist, Author, Visionary and Competitive Athlete, has harvested profound success both for his own enterprises and for the fortune 500 companies whose ranks of employ he served including the likes of Disney, AOL Time Warner, and Yahoo! From his perch within these companies, he created strategic partnerships, joint ventures, and multi-million dollar revenue streams with scores of companies like Toyota, Apple, Nestle, Warner Bros. Honda, Target, Coca Cola, Budweiser, Gillette among many others. Spanning even further back, during college and after, he began his career cutting his teeth in the Advertising, consumer products and Fashion industry which had him calling six different countries over the next several years, his home.
Eric Erenstoft , is an expert on conscious intelligence and a prolific author, futurist, entrepreneur, businessman, GenX’er who has emerged out of this brave new 21st century to disrupt the transactional way of thinking most people default to today when perspective is not properly illuminated.
Eric has identified a swath of distinctions that, when collapsed, significantly hamper productivity, expression, and our ability to gain perspective. When these distinctions are illuminated, we gain access to our conscious intelligence, optimizing our ability to elevate our life, our relationships, and our consciousness. He affectionately terms them the Invisible Distinctions. If we think of these distinctions figuratively as DNA, he organized these elemental building blocks to formulate a paradigm he calls The Genome of Elevated Consciousness.
Conscious intelligence acknowledges that our paths are as unique as our own DNA, and the choices we make- including the choices we may not realize we have, are informed by our thoughts, beliefs, perceptions, experiences, memories, environment, and circumstances. This lays in stark contrast to our path being informed by a prescriptive process dictated by transactional thinking: (Do this…and get that….), de facto, binary thinking that shuts out our access to conscious intelligence.
Conscious intelligence illuminates rather than prescribes. Our path is ours to discover, explore, choose, and navigate. The Genome of Elevated Consciousness is merely a brilliant torch that illuminates the Way.
Eric Erenstoft is publishing his research on conscious intelligence and sharing his findings on accessing our conscious intelligence in his new book:
Eric chairs and leads several business, entrepreneur, young leadership and philanthropic groups designed for professional growth, continued education, to become better networked and to establish themselves as strong leaders out in our communities.
Eric’s broad comprehensive studies and exposure into both Far Eastern and Western studies, philosophy, psychology, and wisdom complimented by his extensive world travel to the Far East, Europe, and Latin America from an early age has gifted him with a broad, unique perspective of the world, of his fellow man, and the human spirit.
He has facilitated the successes of countless business professionals who have collaborated with him. He has provided support, council and guidance to many enduring the most challenging, traumatic, and darkest times a human being can endure- something he himself personally endured as a youth on through his teens, left to his own devices to invent ways to survive and prevail.
This has inspired his commitment to his continued investment of time, energy, and resources in the service of human dignity, social justice, and adversity. As well, he has guided professionals on a trajectory of success, balance and fulfillment.

He has traveled worldwide , is a life-long competitive athlete and has competed internationally excelling in open-ocean, rough water swimming and surf lifesaving, served with Laguna Beach and LA County Fire- Ocean Rescue. He is accomplished and trained in Yoga, Aerial Arts, Martial Arts, Aikido, Tai Chi, and basically, like a moth to a flame, attracted to anything involving adventure.
He is a 20+yr member of the Screen Actors Guild, has performed professionally in front of the camera for every type of media spanning magazine, commercial, billboards, TV, film; he loves music, has several musician friends, and can often be found at live music performances.
Other hobbies: He is a chef, is an avid food and wine enthusiast, graphic artist and photographer, and dabbles in music and film production.
