An entrepreneur since the age of 34, I have led workshops for thousands of people and I’ve worked with some of the most recognizable brands on the planet (please see my TeamASLAN page for a partial listing).  During that time, I have coached upwards of 3000 people.  I stopped counting a few years ago, but that number continues to grow.  At the heart of it all, I am a servant of anyone seeking personal growth and transformation.

You can check out my academic credentials below, but they were all fueled by my passion for the mind and heart of the learner. My passion is deeply rooted in personal transformation and the belief that the only thing that prevents us from achieving greatness, is the belief in ourselves.
