Influences & Inspiration
Reading the book, "Think and Grow Rich" altered the way I thought. I knew that I could achieve whatever I wanted to - no matter what the actual situation was. When I lost my job in October of 2010, I was scared, upset, and confused. It was at that moment that I made the decision to pursue a lifelong dream of public speaking and share positive inspiration with the world. Since 2010, I have written 6 books, have appeared in 2 films, and am doing what I love. I have the skills and most importantly, the real life experience to help my audiences change their perspective, improve their health and increase their wealth. Let's talk!
