WHY I DO WHAT I DO…
I grew up going to personal growth events and reading Personal development, motivation, and positive psychology not only changed my life, it saved my life...
I was born 2 months premature and I weighed 3 lbs. I was born with a birth defect that 1/300,000 babies were born with at the time, that required immediate surgery. Doctors told my parents to give up on me, that I probably wouldn't survive anyway, and that if I did, that I would never live a normal life. My parents refused to listen and thankfully a procedure developed just 2 years before I was born, saved my life.
At the age of 15, I battled severe depression. Every single day at school, I called my Mom from the payphone outside with the 35 cents I took from my Dad’s change bowl each morning. Fortunately for me, my Mom always picked up the phone and I kept battling my own inner gremlins.
By the time I was 16, I was diagnosed with chronic pain as a result of damaged nerves, told I would be disabled for the rest of my life, would never have a real job, would be numbed by pain pills, and wouldn't amount to anything.
At the age of 17, I battled 2 life-threatening bacterial infections.
By 19-years-old I had undergone 5 major surgeries.
I taught myself how to heal from depression and chronic pain and I now teach people how to heal their own physical and emotional pain. I have dedicated my life to helping people create lives beyond their circumstances in order to advance their own lives and careers.
I love studying the human condition and I’ve spent the last 25 years studying healing, communication, relationships, conflict resolution, happiness, success and emotional intelligence. I speak and write about life with my wife, Maggie, in an effort to teach people how to build and nurture emotionally intelligent lives and relationships.
I never set out to be a writer. I found it because it helped me make sense of the world as a teenager. I write now because I find that I become a better person, a greater lover, a more brave human, a loving soul, and a more empathetic creature through writing. I write because it leads me home, to myself, to greater connection and understanding. I share my writing because people tell me it helps them and I believe that if we know something that can help someone, it’s our responsibility to share it.
I spend my days as a Certified High Performance Coach serving incredible clients, writing about life and personal development, creating video courses and programs, and fulfilling my 17 year old dream of running a positive clothing company, Matter Apparel, that helps people literally wear their care.
When I’m not working, I’m listening to podcasts, playing on the beach, watching as many sunsets as possible, playing with friends and family, hiking, adventuring, reading, watching Netflix with my love, and making yummy food.

I'm a Brand Marketing Strategist and Certified High Performance Coach. I am obsessed with helping people share their stories, knowledge and expertise with the world. I believe that when we know something that can help someone, that it's our responsibility to share it with the world.
I've been helping people share themselves with the world and build lucrative, life-changing online businesses for the last 12 years.
In those 12 years, running multiple- multi-million dollar companies, NY Times Best-Selling book launches, and $MM earning product launches, I noticed something I couldn't get over.
As my Information Marketing Expert clients shared their expertise with the world live on stages and in intimate private masterminds, I watched their audiences and masterminds ranging from 10-2,000 people struggle. No matter how much they spent, they struggled... They attended these multi-day events and they felt on top of the world while they were there. They felt they had everything they needed to finally do the thing, whatever it was for them. They left my clients events AMPED. They were crying with joy and relief, high-fiving, and they'd found new growth friends to cherish for a lifetime.
It all seemed to be everything they needed.
Someone to tell them how they did it: Check.
New ideas: Check.
However, no matter how much these people spent to learn what to do in order to build a business of sharing their knowledge and expertise with the world (and many of them spent HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS of dollars), only about 1% ... ONE PERCENT!!!! ever took what they learned from these events and high-level masterminds and were able to IMPLEMENT and EXECUTE these beautiful vision and grand plans.
It wasn't because they weren't intelligent, or unmotivated, or what they wanted to share with the world was a dud of an idea. These people were all high performers, they were successful in so many other areas of their lives. It wasn't because they lacked the software, the programs or tools to make an online business work (many of them literally signed up for all the programs while still sitting in the audience of these events as expert speakers shared their personal resources).
Not at all.
Then what was it? I wondered to myself 9 years ago.
What was it that they lost between the last day of the event or mastermind and 3 days later (and beyond)
Here's what it was... They left inspired, motivated, hopeful, brave, and bold. They found and celebrated parts of themselves they'd never known to seen before. They had tools (many of them an overwhelming amount of them).
However, they lacked the hands-on application where they took the expert speakers success, resources, tools, business and story and applied it to their own life. So when they got home, they had pages of notes, names and numbers of amazing new friends, and way too many subscriptions to all the programs they were told they'd need to start their business,
They lacked a path, a plan, a process, and someone to guide them step-by-step through the birth of their own new business. While they had a mentor or trainer to tell them how they did it themselves and what tools to use, these people didn't have someone to tell them the right steps to take, where to invest their money and resources, when to purchase a tool and why, what platform works best for their specific needs and goals, who to hire to help them, a (realistic) task list and launch timeline and ACCOUNTABILITY to actually do the thing they've dreamed of for so long.
That's my job. I help my clients, reverse engineer their goals, live into their values, honor the lifestyle and contribution they want to share with the world, find their own voice, develop a plan, design products and programs, and implement and LAUNCH their own products and programs in the world. That's right, I'll sit with you on the phone or over text while you hit that "SEND" button and I'll cheer the loudest when you get your first, 25th, 100th customer and beyond...
Seriously, I will.
You really can do this. You are capable and your ideas and gifts that you're passionate about sharing with the world are good enough... and for many of you, they're life changing.
Check out a few my texts with one of my clients, Brandee, who just launched her new 2020 online membership program and course! She went from no email list, to a full course, membership program, and 105 paying membership clients on her FIRST LAUNCH! How amazing is that?! I love what I do and I hope it shows. You'll get to work, you'll make it happen (I'll show you how), and we'll have a darn good time while we're at it!
