What’s your backstory?
I built a mortgage company from 6 people to 250+ employees and 10 offices before things crashed in 2008. The loss of my mortgage company took everything I owned including my self-esteem and self-worth along with it.
I knew I wanted to create my “entrepreneurial dream” and began a mission that would end up taking me a decade to complete. I spent 10,000+ hours and invested over $200,000 while I built 50+ brands that built all of my skills and character before discovering myself along the journey.

I know this is not an easy job. What drives you?
My why’s. For my kids, wife, and family to see what it’s like to watch someone have a vision and passion and never give up to create the life and business on their terms and to actually achieve it. For my clients, to change their life through our programs, trainings and events.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? What lesson did you learn from them?
Clay Moffat and Mitch Miller.
Those two guys changed my life. Clay helped on my mindset conditioning and breaking down old patterns and replacing them with new patterns.
Mitch saved me a decade and mentored me through copywriting, marketing, advertising and running a successful online business. The dude taught me more about how human beings work than any other mentor I’ve ever had. He also pulled all the right strings to allow me to grow.
How do you push through your worst times?
I used to push through. Now I take a break, have self-trust that all things happen for a reason, life is happening for me and not too me.
I break, rest, get my mindset and emotional state right. Then decided what my next best step is for my business and life, I schedule that and get back to work.
