My Interests are working with people who are also online marketers. It really doesn't matter if you are a Network Marketer, Affiliate Marketer or any other home business / brick and mortar business owner. As long as you are looking to connect with good people and wiling to share some good ideas... then I'd say I'm game! I enjoy reading "How To Books" (like who doesn't right?). I'm currently reading outliers from Malcome Gladwell. I enjoy Seth Goden books, and pretty much anything I can really pull some good content and lessons from. I'm always looking to improve my self and my skills and help others do the same!
My activities would be hiking, working out (when I get a chance), paintball, Muay Thai, watching movies, playing pool and hanging with good people.

Choice is the only true freedom we have. - I think that was me. :)
Follow Me On
I am just an average guy who works from the comfort of his own home. But it wasn’t always like that.
For the majority of my working career, I was an average blue collar worker who never asked for time off, never called in sick, always worked 40+ hours a week and had only a Tuesday or Wednesday to call my own.
But that all changed…
Somewhere in 2006, maybe 2005 I ran into a friend who at the time had to have a private meeting with me in regards “an opportunity”. Little did I know that the decisions (that I thought I was going to use to blow him off) would change my life forever.
As I left the corporate blue collar world of no life and making pennies, I quickly started to realize the value of time and more importantly MY TIME.
But before we can take a walk down that road, you need to know a few things. So let’s just back up a few years.
First, I have always ran some sort of small business ever since I was fresh out of high school. Back in those days I had hobbies (just like everyone else did) and so I found comfort in a certain style of music. That inspired me to start a portable DJ company and (which I give credit to) spurred the innocent notion that I could work for myself and could provide all that I needed.
All someone had to do was tall me more, show me how and maybe give me a little push in the right direction.
So after about a full decade of working “for the man”. I decided to take the long walk down the road of uncertainty. Oh, how lonely it was… at first. As soon as I started my venture, I ran into like minded people who thought and felt the same way I did about a great number of things.
Even while running my DJ company out of a small club out on Woodland Hills CA, I was quickly approached and coached into being a commodities broker. For those of you who don’t know much about commodities, it’s the core products that our world is made up of (gold, silver, crude oil, heating oil, pork bellies and more) and I traded them.
Just to let you know, commodities brokers are much like stock brokers… but on steroids. Often referred to as “day traders”, we would move hundreds of thousands of dollars in and out of the market in days, hours, and even minutes.
Just to let you know, at the time I became a commodities broker, I had to pass the 6th hardest test nation wide just carry the license. Now normally, the average person would go to college for up to 4+ years just to get a job as a runner (someone who runs orders around and places them – aka bottom of the totem pole). Then after years of hard work and dedication, then and only then would they have the chance to be a broker.
I started out as a broker on day one!
As a broker, I discovered the true meaning of time freedom. In my most profitable day, I made around $15,000 dollars in about a 30 minute time period. Talk about the value of MY TIME. Just think, I now had the rest of the day, week or month to make EVEN MORE!
Ever since then, I’ve been hooked on time freedom, time value and a little known term (at the time) called LEVERAGE!
However, sometimes that sort of business doesn’t prove to be a wise choice for people who value high ethics and standards. So I found my way out of that industry after about a whole year.
Back To The Slave Pits!
Then, came a spider (my friend mentioned at the beginning of this) and he mentioned a few things blah blah blah… I wasn’t interested. Then one day he called me over the phone and asked me (really begged) to meet him and his brother for lunch. So I said “sure why not”.
Keep in mind, my full intention was to blow him off for good because clearly I wasn’t interested… right?
Never mind how the meeting went and forget all your preconceived notions, because where I started on that day and where I am today are way different. But anyway you look at it, the day I was introduced to the MLM or Network Marketing industry, my life was forever changed.
Let me just put it in these terms because they might relate to you as they did for me on that SINGLE day in time. The single day when I realized that maybe working 40+ hours a week with no time off, no vacation, couldn’t even call in sick and scared to death that I could be fired any time… no longer mattered.
The message was clear, I could do anything I wanted, go anywhere, meet anyone and be as successful as I wanted to be. All I had to do was decide that I wanted to be successful, I wanted to be someone who didn’t have to live paycheck to paycheck. Someone who would be able to experience the lifestyle to do what they pleased and with who they wanted for as long as I wanted to… forever!
Simply waking up when I was done from sleeping instead of an alarm clock, coffee, traffic, boss yelling at me, customers crying, and all the other hassles that came from employment was no longer a dream. Not to mention the little in pay and even worse, the little in my savings.
Now things, were changing. They had to change. I had to change. Just like you… just like everyone else who becomes something greater than themselves. You must be the change you want to be / see in the world.
My first 5 years in the MLM industry were not as shining and beautiful as most would assume. It was full of despair, debt and failure. But in that time, I learned, I meet people, I read books, purchased CDs, watched DVDs, subscribed to every leader I could and still I didn’t see the success I wanted.
Then one day, I got a lucky break.
As most Network Marketers are told to do, I made my way to my companies convention. And in over a compelling and intense 3 day weekend, I left with a brand new $50,000 (around with tax and licenses) DODGE CHALLENGER RT. Branded with my companies name and logos all over the place.
But that didn’t help me as much as you might think and (sorry to end the cinderella story so soon) but I sold it not too long ago.
I’m glad you asked… so let me tell you.
As we all do in the Network Marketing Industry, we go through a MAJOR shift in our personal development. We discover things and make make bold and sometimes abrupt decisions.
We tend to do that as entrepreneurs.
And so did I.
What I discovered… no scratch that… what I stumbled upon was a secret that little to no-one in this industry knew about. Something so misunderstood that not even the top 1% of this industry knew how to do it correctly.
I had to make a move to run my business online and it required ALL of my time. I had to drop everything I was doing, shut down my fitness business and focus all of my assets to be able to share this message with you today!
Even now, it’s safe to say that the majority of the entire Network Marketing Industry still doesn’t fully understand how to do their job and even worse when it comes to applying to online.
That is why I’m telling you that if you were to just take the step. Make the decision to have a little faith. Faith in those who know, those who have taken the step before you and have started to or have already see the success you truly desire… then it can happen for you.
What is this secret?
You really want to know the answer… do you?
Well, it’s not much different than what you already do, if you are already building a business. And if you are not, it’s just as simple to understand. Its traffic.
Traffic to my business, traffic that translates into cash. Cash that moves to my wallet. Cash that provides me the lifestyle I (and maybe you) have always wanted.
Sure at the end of the day, you and I might have a different idea of what makes us happy, but in the end it’s really all the same desire.
That WE desire is FREEDOM. That WE desire is LIFESTYLE.
I intend to give you the tips and show you the short cuts I never had. Just those tips alone could save you thousands of dollars and or hundred (or more) in hours.
My mission is to help you learn all the steps I took to success. Sure some of the might be hidden, but if I were to give all of my best kept secrets away, then you might not value them as much as I did when I discovered them. And that could severely limit you and your success.
Of course you can always move faster if you were working with me, but that’s your decision.
That’s not mine to take and I would never tempt you otherwise.
All I can do is show you the door. All you have to do is open it.
Just like in the movie Up In The Air, George Clooney says:
“How much did they first pay you to give up on your dreams?
And when were you going to STOP and come back and do what makes you happy?
I see guys who work at the same company their entire lives, guys exactly like you.
They clock in, they clock out and… they never have a moment of happiness.
You have an opportunity.
This is a rebirth.
If not for you… do it for your children.”
Now the ball is in your court. Will you choose to play in the game of life? Or will you sit this one out as if you have another game to play?
The choice is yours.
To YOUR Success,
