From "Paper Boy" to "Breakage Boy" at a local beer distributor to the "Video Guy" to "Same Day Edit Guy" to the MIND Mechanic, I've had quite the journey... Since the mid-2000’s I have been building my career as a Creative, Coach, and Speaker. From mom and pop shops to Netflix, Oprah Network OWN, Tony Robbins, Richard Branson, Tim Ferriss, the Number ONE Doubles Players in Tennis The Brian Brothers, I have worked with a full gamut of clients.
I love to share my good, bad and ugly experiences from growing my video production company in high school to making millions traveling the world and almost going bankrupt. My lessons learned from millions made, millions lost, and millions in the making inspires people that TRULY ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE! I find great joy in sharing my knowledge and experiences with dreamers, doers, and entrepreneurs in an effort to help people learn to CREATE YOUR WAY in a world that taught YOU to CREATE THEIR WAY.
I am passionate about people having CLARITY and I have cracked the CLARITY code for dreamers, doers, and entrepreneurs and I am ready to share. My talks are filled with candid stories of successes and failures, intermingled with plenty of humor to help inspire, motivate and engage the audience.
I have been privileged to speak to tens of thousands of people. I'm READY to speak to YOURS!
MY SWEET SPOT
Virtual Group Trainings + Coaching...
Let's talk WHY you need me to Speak to your People Virtually...
Let's face it keeping people engaged on a Virtual Training can be difficult for most. Well after 1+ MILLION Views/Listens over 12 years between fb lives, podcasts, youtube, interviews, and zooms I have spoken over 3,000+ HOURS Virtually. Keeping a Virtual Audience Engaged and Energized is my SUPER POWER.
Most speakers just talk at the audience the whole time. A true connection is never really made. My talks are typically split between speaking & interacting (doing coaching/Q&A). Having filmed testimonials at 100's of events through the years there was one thing that became abundantly CLEAR. 80-90% or more of the people in attendance at all events, talks, summits etc. have the same goals, dreams, aspirations, struggles, and challenges. Outside of Speaking to Groups my other LOVE is coaching people 1 on 1.
There is nothing more powerful than being able to coach someone to a breakthrough and see the relief in their face/body in a group setting. I have done this 100's of times and people LOVE it. Because the audience can see themselves in the person being coached!

5 Reasons to Have Me
Speak to Your People!
People don't need more "information", they need clarity and clarity comes from taking action, which currently a lot of the world is afraid to take. After people hear my talks they take ACTION!
Most speakers leave people feeling misunderstood and that what they want is so out of reach because the speaker is some how "better" than them. Having lived in a small town in the midwest my entire career, After my talks people feel like I'm just one of them. "If he can do it, so CAN I!"
Most speakers are only inspirational and that can be short lived...But along with the other reasons inspiration IS VERY IMPORTANT. But my goal is not just for them to feel inspired in the moment but rather completely transform their LIFE. So they are Inspired to take action, Inspired to make the changes they have been wanting to make for years, Inspired to write the book, record the podcast, do the art, make the film, etc. Inspired to do what's their HEART!
The stories I share, the way I speak, the energy I bring to every talk has people see things from a different perspective. They learn new ways to SHIFTtheir MINDS to CREATE in their LIFE what they have always wanted to from a holistic approach... MIND, BODY, SPIRIT!
People are tired, depressed, worn out, confused, lost, stuck! They don't have the energy they to do what they WANT to do. If there is ONE word I have heard 10,000 times through the years...it 's ENERGY. My Infectious ENERGY. Your people will get done listening to my talk and they Human Battery will be Recharged. They will be ENERGIZED to Action. They will be more productive than they have been in years.

The Everyday Hero...
The photo below was created in 2018 for an event I held locally called Dreamers, Doers, and Entrepreneurs. It attracted all walks of LIFE! The photo I shared before this photo in the presentation is the photo above with Tim Ferriss, Tony Robbins, Richard Branson, etc. But my punchline with the photo below as I pointed out to the audience is that a lot of us including myself put people (entertainers, sports figures, celebrities or famous people, etc.) up on pedestals. When in reality EVERYONE in that audience, every one of YOU who reads this and EVERYONE in this photo is JUST as INCREDIBLE & VALUABLE as any one of those "celebrities"!
In my LIFE it's been the person that if I said their name you wouldn't know who they are that has had the biggest impact on my life and they are the one who have been there for me when I needed someone the most! The "celebrities" were not there for me. I couldn't just pick up the phone for 98% of them and they would drop everything and help me. It's the people who are in our lives every day who don't get enough credit or encouragement etc. IT'S YOU the EVERYDAY HERO that is INSPIRING and transforming lives!
Their DREAMS won't die in THEIR HEARTS, HEADS, & HARD DRIVES...
From 2012-2017 Monday-Friday if I was not traveling for work I was walking with my grandpa at the mall. One day I asked him two questions. What is something you regret that you did and What is something you regret that you did NOT do. He instantly had an answer for what he DID NOT do but couldn't think of anything he did that he regretted.
His regret is that he never got his novels published. He told the same story as long as I've been alive...This ONE publisher said: "If you would have written your novels 50 years ago they would have been Best Sellers!" One person can change the entire trajectory of your life. One decision can change the entire trajectory of your life!
Will you let one person make you or break you? My mission is to speak LIFE into the SOULS of all those I have the opportunity to get in front of to MAKE SURE that their DREAMS DO NOT DIE IN THEIR HEARTS, HEADS, OR HARD DRIVES.
