Twenty-two years ago my wife and I lived in a studio apartment— just big enough for a queen-size bed and our stereo equipment—in Southern California.
Life was a “tough road” for BOTH of us! I was struggling to pay rent, our car payment/ insurance and food. At this point in my life, I was clueless, naïve…and possessed ZERO skills to create solid cash flow, or even build a modest “nest egg.” Bottom-line, I didn’t understand anything about finances…from making money to managing it wisely.
The LONE strategy I pursued was becoming a mega-successful professional actor/model. I had a distorted belief this was the only way to make “ BIG money”, and leave my lasting mark on the world.
Yes, the money, fame, and recognition began to appear in my life! High-dollar modeling jobs, dreamed-about acting roles, and elusive “fame” was now a potential. It seemed like the flood of prosperity and “living the good life” would be our endless life adventure!
But there was one big problem on this “roller-coaster ride” for my wife and I. You see, we burned through money…as fast as we made it! Now, I’m aware this is a “life out of balance” and we were both compelled to work together to make lasting changes in our directions and mind-sets. I began to realize the value of team building and setting goals in our lives.
One year later (after a New Year’s celebration, naturally) We made a “New Year’s resolution” we were going to stop being “OK” with barely making it, and make a mutual commitment to becoming mature, aware, and excellent…in every area of our lives!
Through education, focus, 100% dedication, and an entirely new operating mind-set…we created an immediate improvement in our quality of living!
Here’s some of the important habits we practiced to make it happen…every day.
We devoted our television time to reading books together. Instead of eating out…we made gourmet dinners for one another. Instead of being scared…we encouraged each other to take massive leaps of faith. We pushed each other out of our “comfort zones” and into a reality of growth/change/enlightenment/ passion and, best of all, abundance!
When both my wife and I “thought” we had made permanent and lasting changes in our lives…I was impacted by more success than we both ever dreamed of.
That year, after taking action towards our goals, I booked the worldwide Levi’s campaign for both TV and print (billboards, retail stores, etc.). We went to a dazzling NEW level of wealth and prosperity! Again, I was under the spell it would never end…
We had finally made it to the very pinnacle of prosperity! We were rich beyond our wildest dreams!! One more time, The Universe would deliver a VERY sobering lesson…Within one year, we went from “comfortable, wealthy, and happy” to wondering where ALL the money had gone!
What had we done?! How could this happen? Where did we go wrong?
What I realized is that I stopped doing the very things which created this amazing wealth in the first place. I stopped learning, growing, and helping others. I had become comfortable…TOO comfortable!
As part of my NEW career track, I began to connect with the TOP motivational speakers, thought leaders, and business leaders. Some of them focused in the Network Marketing arena. An innovative approach to home business…where college students, stay-at-home moms, the expanding retired population, could make a flourishing income-full or part-time!
A few major influences are Stephen Covey, Zig Ziglar, Tony Robbins, and more. They became my mentors, and I promoted their teachings, philosophies, and info products.
Because I saw the need, growth and potential of network marketing, in 2008, I created The Expense Tracker. It evolved into the #1 Expense Management platform for the Network Marketing industry. My new Clients included: LifeVantage, Max International, Evolv Health, MonaVie, JoyLife, Melaleuca, First Team Real Estate, Prudential Real Estate, Remax, Tarbell and many more.
In 2013, I had the honor of being Awarded “Top 50 Most Powerful and Influential People in the Direct Selling and Network Marketing Industry Worldwide” by Direct Selling Live Magazine. I’ve continued to create break-through products for direct marketers, including business education, motivation, and building new life skills!
Today, I am blessed with a wonderful, loving family…and friends all over the world – from Europe to China. My beautiful, devoted wife is still by my side…and my amazing “miracle” 12 year old daughter is a constant delight and inspiration! (We just took an incredible trip to Disneyland the whole family is still raving about!)
My all-time favorite hobbies include: Golf, surfing, tennis (almost went pro), motocross, paddleboarding, skiing, snowboarding…anything that is fast! I love the outdoors. I savor ALL the beauty of the natural world.
I play a few instruments, and I’m a HUGE Frank Sinatra fan, but you can’t lock me into ONE musical niche! I love music all the way from Julio Iglesias, to 30 Seconds to Mars, Adele, Mozart, Shinedown, and many more… across all genres, cultures, and languages!
In the last twenty years I have made millions and lost millions, and what I have realized is life is truly “a journey of lessons”.
