Full circle in an interview with Tony Robbins’ team
Get familiar with my story fast in this short, three-minute video produced by my teacher and mentor, Tony Robbins.
The shadow we allow to consume us
The root of the challenges we experience today often took form early in our lives. For each of us, there was a time when all was well in the world, and then something happened that shifted pure light and joy, to doubt, wanting, and lack. For me, this was a constant subconscious questioning of, “what’s wrong with me?” Bypassing my special uniqueness and light with this doubt, I lost sight of who I was and modified my behavior to try to fit in and be accepted.
From school, college and my adult professional career, I was living false identities to suffer the inevitable crashes that came along every few years with being out of sync with who I was. Alcohol, painful relationships, self-doubt, and work obsession were all my favorite "flavors" of suffering. I was quite good at it too, for professionally I was outwardly “successful” as a leader guiding startup companies through funding, profitability and exit. I had the fancy luxuries, job titles, and social life, but on the inside I was miserable. Sure, I had my moments of joy when in nature, such as scuba diving or a snowboarding trip, but I always came back to looking for fulfillment outside of myself, and never found it.

The turning point
Change your story, change your life. Ultimately, our story is founded upon beliefs. What is a belief? Merely a FEELING of certainty about something. That’s it!
What’s an identity? Is set of beliefs. Our whole knowing, our whole life, is merely be based on FEELINGS of certainty.
I had beliefs that I had to retire to live my dreams, and that I needed large sums of money in the bank to do that. I had an identity as a hot-shot corporate executive, which was the identity I thought would get me there.
Fast forward to my saving grace: stumbling upon Tim Ferriss’ New York Times bestseller, “4 Hour Workweek” This was the first time I had access to a different set of beliefs; concepts like taking mini-retirements now and working from anywhere in the world. This was the start of my Escape the Office journey, but I still had massive work to do before I was ready to take Action
Embracing my destiny
Transforming our lives towards fulfillment, joy, and authenticity is 80%+ psychology, and shifting that requires much more than just reading a book; it takes massive action!
My action started at Tony Robbins’ 2016 Unleash the Power Within Event in San Jose, CA. It took an overwhelming satiation of pain to book that first $700 ticket. It was a decision that ultimately made my destiny. For at this event, I defined the life I now live today: “freedom of time and place, living in the mountains and beaches.”
Before leaving that event, I cut a $15,000 check to invest in Tony’s Mastery University which set course for the transformation and experience that now allows me to help others live their most extraordinary life.
Since my first transformational event, I’ve invested over $70,000 in my development. This afforded me 500+ hours of training with Tony Robbins, and developing a peer group of world-class entrepreneurs and coaches who hold me to higher standards. I was privileged to be invited by Tony’s team to attend his Leadership Academy, where I trained on Tony’s training methodologies now deeply embedded into my coaching programs. I’ve expanded my training to include the study of Law of Attraction with Ester Hicks.
