Follow Me On
Welcome to my personal profile! I am really glad you decided to check out my story and learn how I generate an income from home and more importantly, how I can help YOU succeed.
You and I have not yet had a chance to get to know each other, but my guess is that you're looking for something that you know you want, but you aren't sure how to make it happen.
Whether you are a complete newbie to the internet home business industry, or you are a seasoned and successful networker or internet business owner, I'll bet that if you're taking time to look, you're probably interested in learning how you can:
- Have a breakthrough year
- Work more efficiently
- Stop jumping from opportunity to opportunity searching for success
- Stop chasing uninterested family members and friends
Are you still interested?
If you're ready, now is the time to turn off the TV, find a comfortable spot on the couch and dig into the information on the rest of this page. Printing this page out may make it easier for you to go through.
So, here we go...
Who am I? I am a typical happily married newlywed, enjoying my life with my beautiful wife, Natasha, and our two dogs, Dixie (Shepard Mix) and Dakota (Newfoundland).
My professional life after college has consisted of 12 years working as an Account Executive and Group Manager for two advertising agencies.
In the fall of 2006, my wife and I became involved with a new home business in order to make some extra money. After becoming very frustrated with our results and deciding that we had no interest in chasing down uninterested family members and friends, we began to research the internet to find ways to build our business. It was at this point, that we discovered what is known as "attraction marketing".
After studying and applying everything we could find about attraction marketing, we began to see results that amazed us, not to mention, our sponsor! In the time since we have started applying the principles of attraction marketing, my wife and I have personally sponsored more than 100 paid members into our home businesses, all of them without making a single cold call or holding home or hotel meetings... I know what you're probably thinking, and NO they were not our friends or relatives!
While our success story using attraction marketing may sound appealing to you, the most important thing for you to know is that I can teach you everything I have learned about earning an income on the internet, as long as you are willing to put forth a serious effort and take the actions necessary to do so. This business really can be a lot of fun as soon as you learn and implement the attraction marketing concepts that I will teach you.
I do want to make sure that you understand upfront that there is no "magic bullet" or "guarantee of success" regarding earning money with an online business. If you've already researched or worked other home businesses, I'm sure you're already well aware of this fact.
My belief about earning money is that the more use value and help that you can provide to people in the marketplace, the more money you will have flowing back to you. This belief is why I have spent a lot of time writing free training articles and producing free attraction marketing training videos that will help you grow your business.
I am a student of personal development, and in my readings and studies of highly successful people I have come across a common theme...when you do what you love to do, work doesn't seem like work and earning money seems to flow a little easier. When you do what you love to do, you can live a life of profit and purpose.
I love to help other people succeed and achieve great results in their life. It's a great feeling to know that someone has learned and applied something I've taught them.
One of the problems I've seen with a lot of online business websites is that they don't do much to build rapport or a relationship with the people who are considering joining.
The internet can be an intimidating place to do business with all of the scams and rip-off artists that are out there ready to take your money...if you are still looking you're like me, you've probably come across some of these scams, but you're still hopeful that the right opportunity is out there.
I am sure that you would agree that people are much more likely to do business with people they know, like, and trust. I provide you with all of my contact info on this site because I know I can't build a trusting relationship by hiding behind a website.
I'd like to be able to communicate with you...we may be the right fit for a business relationship, I'm not sure...
I'd bet that if you are still with me you're probably an experienced "home business veteran"...with the scars to prove it...am I on the right track?
I know I've spent countless hours searching for different ways to make my home business work. Some things I've tried seem absolutely ridiculous now that I know better...
I'm sure you've probably wasted some of your time and money trying to figure out how to make a home business work...or wondering if it was even possible at all.
It is possible for you to earn money online, and I'll share the resources I've used to help you get started in the right direction, but first let me assure you that I don't do the following things to build my business:
- No cold-calling leads
- No home meetings
- No one-on-one presentations at coffee shops
No tricking family members and friends into attending business presentations
So, as you can see I don't do the things that most people probably associate with making money in a home business.
Here's what I do to build my business...
I work with people who contact ME.
I work with people who contact me because they are ready to change their lifestyle...
While this is just a personal profile, you are going to learn a lot about the person I am. The purpose of this information is to let you know that I'm a person who loves to teach and mentor people like you, so you can succeed with your own home business.
Learning more about me will allow you to realize that working with me can help you succeed in accomplishing your goals.
Don't you think that it is easier to contact someone about a business who shares common interests with you and is someone you know will be easy to talk to than to call someone you know will constantly be going for a "hard close"? When you get to know someone through their story, it's easier to talk to them because you feel like you already know them...which is why this attraction marketing method will work for you like it does for me.
Livin' out West...Finally
I was born in Boston, but my family moved to Memphis, Tennessee before my first birthday.
In college I worked my way through school and was a member of the Varsity Track and Field team at the University of Memphis. During my senior year of college I got an internship at a local advertising agency.
I enjoyed the advertising business and accepted a position with that agency when I was ready to go to work full time. Despite an initial aversion to cold calling (Ok, more of a hatred...which is why I love attraction marketing), I began to have success cold-calling some large accounts and ended up working there for the next 12 years. It was during that time that I realized that I wanted to have my own business.
My wife, Natasha and I currently live in Boise, ID. After a couple years of dreaming, we recently took the plunge and moved our lives 2,000 miles across the country, and we love it.
Natasha was born in Mississippi, and her family moved to Memphis when she was 4 years old. I was 34 years old when I met Natasha - I'm glad I waited until I found her because I know that we were truly meant to be together.
My experience and personal education has taught me that you will attract the people and things you have in your life based on the kind of person you've become.
When you meet the person you are meant to be with, you know it's right. Despite whatever pre-conceived notions or rules you may have established, when you find the person of your dreams it's like magic. It just works.
My wife is an extrovert who loves to socialize and meet new people, while I tend to enjoy spending more time to myself. Despite our different styles, we share the same outlook on living a successful life.
We both love learning, growing and helping others succeed. Our views on family, work and play mesh just right.
Natasha is an attorney, volunteer and leader of several non-profit organizations. I remember the first time I visited her house when we started dating. Her living room was filled with more than 1,000 stuffed animals that she had collected through Bear Hugs With Love, an organization that she and an old college friend created to help the youngest victims of Hurricane Katrina. That was when I knew she was special.
Natasha and I discovered attraction marketing after becoming frustrated with the results we were getting in our new business. Both of us began studying and working to apply what we learned. Our results began to amaze us, and we realized that we were onto something that was incredibly powerful.
Both of us are hard workers, and have had to deal with setbacks in our lives that could have caused us to quit before we found success...but we kept going and now we are on our way to living the life of our dreams.

I definitely think that one of the best ways to get to know someone is to see them doing the things they love with their family members and friends.
Letting someone get to know more about what's important to you, what you do, and where you live goes a long way in helping to build a comfort level in a new business relationship.
Natasha and I realize how precious time is in our lives. Creating more quality time with our family members and friends is one of our main driving forces in our business.
Hobbies and Interests
We enjoy many hobbies. Natasha loves cooking (which works well because I love eating!) We are also interested in tennis, personal development and skiing. Oh yeah, sometimes I have a hard time getting Natasha to put down the karaoke microphone.
My family is from Colorado, so I had the great fortune of spending all of my childhood summers at a camp in the Rocky Mountains. It was there that I discovered my love for hiking. I love the mountains, and trail running and mountain biking are some of my favorite ways to spend time.
Another thing we love is weekend getaways and fun vacations.
These trips include staying in a suite on the Gulf Coast, going snorkeling in the Carribean, driving through wine country in California, and skiing in Colorado.
How It All Got Started...
When I was in my first couple of years in the advertising business, I knew that I wanted to build my own business, so that I would not have to spend my whole life working for someone else. I had a huge desire to succeed and devoted myself to studying personal development.
One of the things I learned in my studies was that you could achieve great results by finding someone who was getting the results you desired and then model their actions. My first real attempt to build a home business came after meeting a 27-year old millionaire who had recently made his money in a network marketing business.
Like many who have tried to build a home business, my plans to build my fortune through my new business venture were halted when the company I joined went out of business shortly after I joined.
Over the next several years, I continued my advertising career with the thought of succeeding in my own business always in the back of my mind.
A few years later I was presented with another opportunity by someone I went to college with and decided to make another attempt at building a home business. I had a little bit of success with this opportunity, but eventually became frustrated with my results and decided to focus my attention on my job instead.
Oops! Five years passed, and I had lost touch with my friend who had introduced me to the previous business. He had moved to another city and I had not spoken with him since he moved. Then one day a mutual friend told me he had recently run into this person and was surprised to find out that he was one of the top earners in his new home business. He was earning more than $100,000 per month at the time. I was still working at the same job. I have to tell you, that hurt.
I had temporarily given up on my dream, he had not. That was when I vowed I would not give up on it again.
I am really glad I made the decision not to quit. Despite some more frustrations, my wife and I have gone from chasing uninterested family members and friends to attracting like-minded people who contact us because they want to join our business.
We don't try to convince, sway or drag people into our businesses. We are here to work as consultants with people who WANT to work with us.
The Importance of a Mentor...
Let's face it, when you are around successful people, you are more likely to be successful yourself. Left to try to figure it out all by yourself, you are more likely to get frustrated and quit before you find the success you desire.
I know that I have learned an incredible amount from my mentors, and I love being able to pass on that knowledge to the people on my team.
Having a mentor to help you doesn't guarantee your success...that will be up to you, but if you truly desire to achieve success, I am pretty sure I can help point you in the right direction.
I have learned that success is something that you attract to you based on the kind of person you become. It is not something to be chased...it is something you attract to your life. In order to attract it, you must go to work on yourself, and not look to outside forces to change your situation.
Once you make a decision that you have to succeed and then find a mentor who can help point you in the right direction, you will be well on your way. If you will help yourself, and also help enough other people get the results they desire, you can achieve the results you desire.
I wish you the best of luck and success, regardless of whether or not we do business together.
To Your Success,
