About Me

What I’ve learned about balancing life and business

WORK WITH ME

Chasing Success

I’ve always been an entrepreneur. I started my first business when I was 10 years old — selling sweets and candy to my school chums. I had a lot of failures. And l had a lot of successes.

At some point, it felt like that’s all I was doing — chasing success to make me feel worthy. Never really having it. Never even really  understanding what it was. All I knew was that I needed to work more hours, make more money, be more.

It was exhausting. I was living a life I thought was worth living, but I couldn’t have been more wrong. I spent decades of my life feeling lost and had no clarity around who I was or what it was that I wanted. Chasing the shadows of success to ‘fit in’ and ‘be someone’.

Deep down I was lonely and didn’t know where to turn.

A Precious Gift

Then my first son was born, and everything changed.

I chose to change. I didn’t want to be an overwhelmed and grumpy entrepreneur, bringing all my frustrations home to impact this perfect new being. Even though I knew I wanted to transform my life, it was hard. I had so many unhealthy habits.

I remember the moment I was holding my new son — in one hand so I could use the other to check email on my iPhone. I suddenly realized what I was doing.

My wife and I had experienced four miscarriages before our first child was born; I’ve never felt pain like it. And here I was taking time away from the precious gift of my child I’d waited so long for to check email.

Making Changes

I knew I had to make some changes.

I worked with great coaches and chose to lead my life, instead of life leading me.

I defined my priorities and what was truly important to me.

It was a life-changing experience. That’s when I decided to become a coach: to lead people just like me — constantly chasing “conventional success” — into the light and help them lead a fuller, more satisfying life.

I believe anyone can be a wealthy workaholic, but it takes real courage to create a life you love leading at the same time as being a present parent and partner to the ones you love.
