In 1996, I was $250,000 in debt, divorced, overweight and broke. Me and my company was on the brink of bankruptcy. At 2:00 in the morning, after staggering home from a late night at work, I turned on my television (somehow my cable wasn’t disconnected) and I saw a Tony Robbins infomercial. I ordered “Personal Power” and had it rush-delivered. Two days later, I was listening to the first recording and 15 minutes later, I felt like Tony was speaking to me. I called a toll-free number on the box, and signed up for a $5,000 live event with the last remaining credit on my credit card.
Weeks later, I on the big island of Hawaii at Life Mastery jumping up and down with 2,700 other people. In a week, I walked away from that event with clarity, confidence and a plan. That event turned my life around, and in six months I was healthy, thin, in love with a beautiful woman and my business was profitable. Shortly after, the business was acquired by Campbell-Mithun, a billion-dollar advertising agency that was owned by the publicly traded “IPG” – Interpublic Group.
Life changed for the better. Suddenly, I was an in-demand speaker and advisor during the dotcom boom.
Shortly after, I was married, moved to San Diego and launched “Traffic Geyser”, an online marketing business that produced millions of dollars in revenue. My friend Pam Hendrickson introduced me to Tony Robbins – his companies needed help with their online marketing.
I helped Tony with his marketing, co-created a product called The New Money Masters and introduced him to the most successful online marketing legends including Frank Kern, Jeff Walker, Eben Pagan, Russell Brunson, Brendon Burchard, Dean Graziosi, Dean Jackson, Marie Forleo, and more.
Since then, I’ve had the good fortune of advising dozens of personal development and growth leaders including Deepak Chopra, Wayne Dyer, Brian Tracy, John Assaraf, JJ Virgin, Dave Asprey and hundreds more.
