Vanessa makes me a far better man than I could ever be if I were left to my own devices.
We've been married since 2003. I left Life Time Fitness in February, 2015 and we've been working side-by-side ever since.
Some people say they wouldn't be able to work with their spouse. I think that's sad, but I understand why they'd say that.
Working together amplified any relationship issues we had. I chose to take it as an opportunity to learn how to be a better husband as well as a better business partner.
I'm a “sometimes” opinionated health and fitness fanatic, and student of personal growth and leadership.
I am not an expert. I've been called an expert in the past, but I actually hate that word.
Being an expert suggests you have it all figured out.
I've got fifteen years of experience in health and fitness, have written hundreds of articles and delivered hundreds of lectures and webinars. I've read a similar number of research papers.
Every year, I learn a little more, and realize that what I thought I knew in the past wasn't quite right.
I have a relentless pursuit to learn more and try out what I learn. Then I can share the knowledge and experience with others. You can read some of my latest health and fitness articles on my blog.
I know that I'm not always right. But each year, I'm less wrong than I was the year before.
I'm a consultant, writer, educator, entrepreneur, and network marketing professional.
Vanessa gets all the credit for leading us into the network marketing lifestyle. The best part is that it's allowed me to do some of the other stuff I love to do, without needing to see it as “work.”
I love to write, educate, and even do some public speaking. Vanessa and I have each had some valuable experiences and knowledge we love to share with others. Blogging, writing, and speaking allows us to do that.
We also love working with our network marketing team, and are always looking for driven, persevering people to join our team.
Finally, I do some consulting with select fitness companies and individuals. I help them create a more powerful brand through aligning their philosophy with their products, services and education. The end result is a better reputation, and increased revenues.
