Why I started this site
I started this site for the same reason I started my own business almost 20 years ago.
I want to leave a positive legacy for my children, my community and I want to know, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that the world benefited from me being in it.
I was born with no advantages, came from a broken home, and my family had no money.
However, through hard work, focus, being an avid goal setter, and a dreamer, I have been able to achieve a great life that is dramatically different from most people I know.
I am not rich or powerful, but I am in control of my destiny and for the most part I get to do what I want.
I have created a life where I do not punch a clock, yet I still get to help and teach people to feel empowered and reach their dreams.
I believe the world should get better every day, and that we as people should get better every day.
One thing I know for sure is that people have infinite potential yet they rarely realize it.
Unfortunately, we now have a generation who seem to always hold themselves back and never really dares to be great.
It is my mission to reinvigorate the human spirit and help people accomplish, what most would think is impossible, and live the life of their dreams.
If you are the type of person who wants more control over the major areas of your life and wants to feel more confident in all aspects of your life, more empowered to achieve your dreams and goals and if you want your family, community and the world to be a safer and more empowered place then this site is for you.
How I am accomplishing my WHY
I have synthesized the vast array of skills I have acquired through personal experiences, formal education, various mastermind groups, and martial arts and put this information into a simple, powerful, and easy-to-follow system that virtually anyone can implement in their own lives or business.
Tools I use to accomplish my WHY
I use seminars, public speaking, book and video programs, and martial arts as a means to inspire people to identify and develop their true talents and abilities.
I know I can help develop people to be high level achievers, to be cheerleaders for everyone around them and understand that you should never judge, just be happy for everyone and encourage them to enjoy their experiences and life. My system has been working effectively for nearly twenty years.
My personal mantra
To achieve business and personal mastery and live a life total fulfillment you must:
- Achieve total clarity about what you want and why.
- Always follow your dreams with passion.
- Do or learn whatever it takes to overcome your fears.
- Embrace the feeling of living outside your comfort zone.
What I have created so far
My business and my life are an incredible playground.
Because of my business and life design I have been able to:
- Achieving my 7th degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do.
- Created/written several books and video programs on successful business systems, time management, anti-bullying, anti-cyber bullying, goal setting and others.
- Create two businesses that operate smoothly and profitably with about 4 hours per week of my time.
- Graduate from college with a business degree while still competing on my college track team, at the varsity level for four years.
- Develop my skills and create programs and curriculums that have positively impacted thousands of lives.
- Graduate from bodyguard school 3 times.
- Co-founded a non profit foundation that went on to raise over $250,000 in cash, food, toys, cloths and more for local charities.
- Travel the country teaching personal development, leadership, business development, martial arts and a whole lot more.
I have developed a team that now trains future leaders
- Problem solvers
- Impassioned to help others
I do not write any of this to impress you but instead to impress upon you that I have a lot to offer if you follow this site.
What makes me unique
I may not have ever had much in the way of advantages, but I am, and always have been, willing to work smarter, harder and longer than almost anyone else to achieve my goals. After years of training, research and teaching I am taking my message to the world on a bigger scale. I am actively working to leave a legacy, not only be for my kids, but for the world as a whole.
Anybody who knows me can tell you that if there is one thing I do better than almost anybody it is IMPLEMENT, IMPLEMENT, IMPLEMENT. Whatever it is, whenever it is, I get things done. I teach people how to create processes that get things done and allow you to enjoy more free time and do the things you are passionate about.
I hope you will join me on this journey and get as much benefit as you possibly can from my experience and share it with as many people as humanly possible. Of course I want your feedback, both good and bad. I may not be able to respond to every person but I will do my best take your feedback seriously.
My trainings, my books, and my programs
I write in a conversational tone as if I am talking to someone directly. I get to the point and don’t worry about being grammatically correct. I believe in a fail forward mentality and GSD (Getting Stuff Done).
One thing that I have always been good at is breaking down problems, cutting through the B.S. and creating effective solutions to those problems.
As I write my books and training programs my goal is to always create tools that can be read or watched in 90 minutes or less and then begin to be implemented in 30 minutes or less and, as much as humanly possible, I work to solve a particular problem in 3 days or less. Obviously some things cannot be completed in 3 days but I am confident I can get virtually anyone well on their way to success in that first 3 days.
I developed my business programs, anti-bullying programs, as well as many other empowerment and safety programs, because I believe most problems can be fixed with coaching, by people who are willing take the time to invest in themselves, their children, and their families personal confidence and empowerment.
My biggest fears
- That I will leave this world and not have made it a better place than when I arrived.
- That I will not set a good enough example for my children so they too will go out and make the world a better place than when they arrived.
- That I cannot convey my message clearly enough in my programs, teachings and books so people can get the maximum benefit possible, as quickly as possible.
Why I started Personal Mastery Martial Arts and why it will be around forever.
I started Personal Mastery Martial Arts, almost twenty years ago, because I believe that martial arts is unique in its ability to help enhance personal development through leadership, communication skills, confidence building, family protection and much more. I also see it as a means to reach out to a large group of people and help as many people as possible.
I still believe that is absolutely true. However, I now realize that with the vast changes in technology and the internet I can reach and help even more people by taking my programs, and trainings to the world through the internet.
My incredible team now teaches the vast majority of the classes at the academy but I will always teach a few classes per week, and conduct weekly staff trainings. Thus ensuring that class quality and instructor skills remains high and ever improving.
I am blessed to be able to take my talents and passion and use them to empower people to develop their own talents and skills. I hope I can help and inspire you and everyone who follows this site, to dare to be great and live the life of your dreams.
Please join me and lets empower the world together.
Dedicated to your success and empowerment,
