My Mission is to Help You Reach New Levels of Stunning Achievement and Unmatched Excellence
I was born in Stoke-on-Trent, England in 1974 and began an ongoing adventure at age 8 when I moved overseas and attended International Schools in both Manila and Bangkok, and in 1997 received a BA in Psychology at Pitzer College, Claremont, California.
Despite dreaming of living in the US from a young age, I found myself being drawn back to Asia after graduation and ended up returning to Japan where I attended a study abroad program at Kansai Gaidai University during my college years.
All seemed right with the world. I was on a path and had my sights set on big things.
That’s when it happened.
It was December of 2004 when my world was shattered, literally and figuratively. I looked death in the eye, having been swept away by the tsunami that ravaged South East Asia and took 200,000 lives.
The fact that I survived was nothing short of a miracle, and it caused me not only to embrace my mortality, but to step back and renew my focus and energy on helping others reach their dreams.
I started reading self-help books and discovered my true passion. Through reading the works of Jim Rohn, Anthony Robbins and Robert Kiyosaki and many others I quickly realized how much power the written and spoken word can have on people’s life direction. It was this newfound realization that inspired me the most.
You and I will share fundamental ideas that can make a dramatic difference in your life. I’ve seen it happen with my clients time and time again, and with the right combination of action-taking, goal setting and accountability, you can reach your destination, whatever that might be for you.
I’m an avid student of the time honored principles of collaboration, masterminding, teamwork, discipline, appreciation and goal achievement, and we’ll put many or all of these to work for your own situation.
The fact is, when you can strike an elegant balance in every area of life: social, financial, physical and spiritual, you can enjoy true greatness. But you must also understand how to maintain that delicate balance and appreciate both the good and the bad in order to move forward successfully.
As of 2012 my main focus has shifted to personal coaching as well as seminars allowing people to internalize the concepts I talk about faster.
Today I invest most of my time into 4 main areas:
- Time Management
These are what I consider the “4 pillars” and can be applied to practically anyone, from students to executives, to achieve incredible results.
I am a big believer in the concept that balance is everything which is why I touch on such topics as lifestyle and health to name just a few from time to time as a means of enhancing these pillars.
My own philosophy of life has been influenced by a number of self-development experts including Tony Robbins, Jim Rohn, Zig Ziglar, Brian Tracy, Dale Carnegie and Earl Nightingale. I have found that their ideas eye-opening and life-changing. Their words inspired me to share what I have learned from my experiences (from living overseas to surviving a tsunami) and the material I’ve studied in the hope that you may be able to live a more enjoyable life.
So that’s my success story, let’s start creating yours!
