With over 21 years of experience in marketing and building brands, I teach people in their 30s – 50s how to get clear, grow a business and live a life in alignment with who they truly are. Three years ago, I quit my corporate job and stepped into my own marketing agency full time. My 6-figure income was fully replaced and I moved to a beach house in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California. I wrote one of the first Facebook Marketing books and became a published author with Penguin Random House. I spoke at national and international conferences around the world. I took control of my life.
Does this kind of lifestyle appeal to you? If you are the kind of person that wants to build your own business and you always do things your way… then I invite you to join me.
My promise to you.
You will get free tools weekly in the form of blog posts, webinars, podcasts and videos that will show you — how to build a brand, market your business, and get complete with who you are meant to become and what alignment looks like for you. You will get access to a private online community of like-minded entrepreneurs that want to kick ass in life. And, I will also offer you premium services to escalate your success.
My core value in life is freedom.
I am passionate about creating and leaving my imprint in the world. The service that lights me up the most is teaching people. I love to speak on stages. I love to mentor people. I can show you how to build products and services and make a lot of money online. I’ve done it for years for others and myself.
I received a BA from the University of North Carolina in English, and an MBA from DePaul University in Entrepreneurship/Marketing. I was a Brand Manager at ConAgra Foods, CEO of a garage startup called Kintech Software, and an Internet Marketing Director at Healthcare Financial Management Association. I founded a marketing agency called Social Experts while I was in corporate. I built that business to over 6 figures and then quit the corporate grind, and moved to California.
My mission in life is to make people feel alive and lit up. I want everybody to feel energy surge in their veins, giddy like a kid that can’t stand still, so happy that they cannot stop smiling. I want people to experience the ultimate adventure – choosing the life they have always desired – the one they imagined as a kid with no inhibitions. When you create a life of your own design, it’s like having super powers.
A glimpse of my life in corporate.
I remember wasting more than 3-hours a day driving to work and back home. I remember working for egocentric bosses that pushed me to do things out of integrity, sell advertisements based on made up statistics, fire people for their own selfish reasons. I remember feeling stuck in a job that was not going anywhere. I remember doing the same thing over and over again every day. I remember making millions of dollars for a company and getting a 5-year golden colored pen, a 10-year faux-leather folder, and the occasional office pizza party. I remember missing so much of my kids early days. I remember being stressed out, taking anti-depressant drugs, and having total breakdowns feeling so out of alignment with who I was meant to be in the world.
A glimpse of my life now.
I work from home. I am either coaching my clients or helping their companies by consulting them. Integrity is my cornerstone. I am straight with my clients, my family, and my children. I mentor people that are up to big things in the world – people that are making a difference in the world – it’s very gratifying. My rewards are time with my family, a deeply spiritual life, and money that allows me to live the lifestyle I desire. I bring my kids to school each morning, and I see them in the early afternoon. I take walks with my beautiful wife on the beach every week and we have date night every Wednesday. I live in the place I have always dreamed of – a beach town in California called Carmel-by-the-Sea — a total paradise. It’s absolutely amazing here. The temperature is 50s – 70s year round. I get to be outside every day. The ambience of the area is magic. It’s like an Italian village got relocated to the California coast. I get to wake up and go to sleep hearing the waves crashing. The sunsets are spectacular colors. We have dolphins, whales, seals and sea lions around us every week. The food and wine scene is amazing. People are laid back, quiet, and at peace here. There is amazing artwork, classic cars, and forest all around. There is a total comfort to living in a place that feels like I was always meant to be here. I highly recommend you find your paradise and seek it out.
I love to travel.
I’m blessed to have travelled around the world many times. I lived in Germany as a child in a military family. I’ve travelled to Vietnam many times to visit family. One of my most favorite destinations is Italy. Specifically, Cinque Terre. I love the magic of small European towns on the Sea. The places I have not been that I really want to visit are: Australia, New Zealand, Tokyo, Hawaii, Scotland, and Ireland.
I love to workout and compete.
I’ve always been into sports. I played baseball and basketball a lot growing up. I competed in tennis in high school and became #12 in all of European DoDD schools. Now, I am into Triathlon. I’ve done over a dozen of them and am currently training for an Ironman 70.3. That’s a 70.3 mile race swimming, cycling, and running that has to be done in 8 hours. It’s a total rush and challenge to the mind and body.
I love fast vehicles.
I’m a huge fan of sports cars and motorcycles. I sold my Audi TT when I moved to California and I bought a BMW S1000R sports bike. It’s fast. There is a certain degree of risk in life when you ride a motorcycle. I get that. And I would not have it any other way. When I ride my bike, I feel alive. I get the full experience moving at 120mph through the wind. There is nothing like it.
That is my story. If you like me, you’ll signup below and we’ll continue the journey. Make sure to connect with me on social media. I’m there every day collaborating with my tribe creating epic adventures.
