Who am I?
I never had a good answer to this question until I sat down and identified the different habits, interests, values, and strengths that make up my personality. If you've never done this, it may very well be the most important self-discovery work you do during your entire lifetime. Once you have this information all in one place, you truly see yourself for the first time.
Who I am is a...

For details about any of these designations see below…
To help you become one of the happiest people on earth.
Right now, no matter who you are, when you look at the future there are things you want, that you have no idea how you can get them. Whether you are conscious of it or not, this fact is impacting the current level of happiness you're experiencing. The way I help you become one of the happiest people on earth is by showing you how to manifest anything you want, using my manifesting checklist. The second you get that all those things you want, are all now within your reach, is the second your happiness level spikes dramatically. Of course it's going to come back down and normalize. What doesn't normalize however is that now you're living into a future of infinite possibilities. The result is you are happier and more content with your journey through life in general. And you're happier and more content with your outcomes in life because you're manifesting more of what you wanted than ever before. End result is you truly become one of the happiest people on earth.
I’m all about getting rich, traveling the planet and making a massive difference in the world.
The Internet was invented in the 1960’s but it wasn’t until 1995 that it began radically changing the way almost everyone on the planet lives. Why did it take so long to begin changing things? It wasn't until the mid-90’s that it became both useable and useful to mainstream society. The Law of Attraction has been around forever. We’re not at the point yet, where it has begun changing the way almost everyone on the planet lives but we're now on the way. For the first time ever, my manifesting checklist makes it possible to manifest guaranteed results. It's only a matter of time now before mainstream society takes notice that the Law of Attraction is now both useable and useful to anyone who wishes to learn how to use it. When that happens we're going to change on this planet unlike anything we've ever seen before.
In June of 2015, I will begin making my manifesting checklist available to the public for the first time. I’ll begin working with people immediately. I’ve also created a program for other Law of Attraction coaches to learn how to use the checklist so they can begin helping their own clients. It's anyones guess as to how long it is going to take before Law of Attraction students everywhere realize it's now possible to manifest guaranteed results. It could take a year or it could taken ten, everything depends on people's willingness to buckel down and learn the skills necessary to use the checklist. Once people realize this though, critical mass is going to kick into full swing.
If everything you just read makes sense to you, great! If you’re skeptical about all of this, I don’t blame you, it’s not easy to picture this kind of change. Just because it’s hard to picture though, doesn’t mean it won’t happen. If you’re reading this, you likely lived through the internet completely changing the way we live. If someone had told you in 1994 that this thing called the internet, that you’d never heard of before, was going change the way people communicate and cause household names like Blockbuster Video, Circuit City, Tower Records, and the Encyclopedia Britannica to disappear, you’d have had a hard time picturing that too. Remember that we went from not being able to put a man on the moon to a decade later pulling it off. Never underestimate what’s possible when it come to human beings.
Between the ages of 18 and 24, I got involved in businesses because of the profit potential and not because of the fun I’d have running them. I wasted a lot of time procrastinating during those years. When I was 25 years old the famous Ken Blanchard taught me that fun is the secret to success. He explained that when you’re having fun, you out work, out think, and naturally out maneuver your competitors who aren’t having fun. While you're in the flow, barely noticing the time passing, they are dragging themselves through the day. While you happily work late, the second the clock hits 5 pm, they bolt out the door. I got his point and it’s one I’ve never forgotten. If you end up working with me, you’ll notice how committed I am to making sure you’re having fun while developing your manifesting and intuitive abilities. If it’s not fun, it’s generally not worth doing at all. To learn more about having fun at work click here.
Napoleon Hill taught me that every negative comes with an equal or greater positive. Kamal Ravikant taught me that life doesn’t happen to me; it happens for me (click here and start the video at 3:58 and watch to 7:30). Abraham Hicks taught me through their kitchen cabinet example that things I don’t want can't come into my experience unless I focus on them. Steve Pavlina taught me that the world before my eyes isn’t objective; it’s subjective. Billionaire Michael Dell and Bruce Lipton Ph.D. helped me realize this is heaven (click here and start video at 57:00 and watch to 1:04). I figured out on my own how to create guaranteed manifesting results which opened up a world of infinite possibilities. All of these lessons combined have resulted in me developing an extremely optimistic outlook on life.
I’m primarily claircognizant but I have clairaudient experiences sometimes too. Intuitive experiences, even forms of psychic abilities and experiences, are available to us all. To learn more about your intuitive psychic abilities, click here.
LAW OF ATTRACTION PRACTICING (WELL NOT EXACTLY)
I first learned about the Law of Attraction in 1985, when I was eight years old. Fast foward 30 years and today I'm a Law of Attraction Results Expert.
I've heard a lot of terms over the years to describe the experience of thinking about something and then having that thing show up in your life. Some of the terms I've heard are manifesting, attracting, conscious creation, deliberate creation, allowing, cosmic ordering and aligning. When I sat down and thought about it though, I realized that none of those terms describe what I'm actually doing. Check it out...
What is manifesting? If you look the term up in the dictionary you'll learn that it means "to make clear." I am making clear what I want to experience with my thoughts but this is a flowerly description of what I'm actually doing.
What is attracting? The idea is that my thoughts are attracting things into my life experience. Maybe this is true, maybe it's not, but it doesn't describe what I'm actually doing. I'm not mentally or physically attracting anything, as far as I can tell.
What is conscious creation? The term implies that I'm consciously creating my reality. I don't know about you but I don't have the experience of conscously creating anything. The Universe does all the actual creation work, I just select what I want.
What is deliberate creation? The term implies that I'm deliberately creating something. Again, the Universe does the actual creation work, I just select what I want. If I were to tweak this term I'd recreate it as deliberate selection.
What is allowing? The term would indicate that I'm allowing things into my life with my thoughts. There is an element of truth here but it's not the best description for what I'm actually doing when I do my "manifesting" process.
What is cosmic ordering? The idea that I'm placing an order with the Universe for what I want. That could be what is happening but that is not what I'm actually doing.
What is aligning? It's when you intentionally focus your thoughts, feels, words and actions on what you want. This is close to what I'm really doing but it's not exactly it either.
So what am I actually doing when I'm "manifesting" something? I'm thinking about various possibilities and selecting the possibility I want to experience. Now I enjoy the teachings of Abraham Hicks and I intentionally get "into the vortex" regularly. Before I sat down to think this through, I always thought that when I "got into the vortex" my good feeling thoughts were attracting good feeling experiences. As I thought about it though, I realized that my good feeling thoughts are actually selecting good feeling experiences. Abraham even says this themselves in their radio tuning analogy. What's the big deal you ask? Aren't attracting and selecting the same thing anyway? If my thoughts are attracting things into my life, that means the world before my eyes is real. If my thoughts are selecting the things I experience that means the world before my eyes is not real, it's a hologram, a lucid dream, or subjective reality. If that's true, that I'm selecting things, a whole new world of possibilities opens up and so many things that never made any sense before, suddenly totally make sense. No wonder mothers are able to lift cars off of their trapped children. No wonder certain people have been able to win the lottery again and again and again. No wonder Abraham and other teachers have said that it's possible to regrow limbs by thoughts alone and even fly through the air. If the physical world before our eyes is real these teachings are idiotic. However if the world before our eyes is a dream, these teachings make complete sense.
To sum things up, after carefully observing what I'm doing, I've concluded that I'm not using the Law of Attraction to attract things into my life. Rather I am thinking about various possibilities and selecting the one I want to experience with my thoughts. I'm not a conscious creator, rather I am a reality selecter.
SELF IMPROVEMENT STUDYING
I cut my teeth on THINK & GROW RICH by Napoleon Hill, when I was 19 years old. Since then, I've read over a hundred books on self-development. Sudden Money, The Alchemist, Ask & It Is Given, The Celestine Prophecy, Conversations With God and others combined with listening to numerous audio programs. Some of these may be known to you, such as: Tony Robbins, Jim Rohn, Brian Tracey, Conscious Language, Living Love, and Alison Armstrong. I've also attended numerous seminars: Landmark Education, PSI, Kabbalah, Ike Pono, Inner Child, Peak Potentials, Abraham Hicks, Wealth Dynamics, and Steve Pavlina to name a few. The result of all this study is that every year my life becomes more and more enjoyable.
Since 2008, I’ve been doing walking mediations which I love. In 2014, I discovered mantra meditation and fell in love with this style too. I often do both daily.
I did my first multi-month overseas trip in 2005. I quit my job and took off to Southeast Asia where I spent a lot of my time living on an island in the Gulf of Thailand. In 2006, I spent a month in Goa, India. Between 2007 and 2015, I've been busy working on my dreams so I only made time for a cruise to Mexico with Abraham Hicks. I’m looking forward to having the time to travel once again in late 2015.
Why have anyone lose? I always seek to create situations where both parties win. It started as an idea that now has become practice. Win/win, for me, is a way of life.
HEART CENTERED LIVING
My parents divorced when I was 10 years old. Suddenly my mom was raising my brother and I on her own, while trying to reenter the workforce. Money was seriously tight. I got to find out what being poor was all about. I hated it and decided to take matters into my own hands. I got a paper route but $50 a month in income wasn’t much. I started shoplifting one item at a time, graduated to boosting (stealing entire shelves of things all at once) and moved on to robbing a house when I was twelve. Got arrested, thanks to my mom paying restitution I avoided doing time, tried to go straight but I missed the rush too much. In high school I lived two lives. I had a landscaping business and made a lot of money legitimately. I also ran a boosting crew and enjoyed the bonuses that came with that. Very few of my peers knew about my other life, most just saw me as extremely ambitious, which is why I was voted Most Likely To Succeed when I graduated high school.
In my freshman year of college I got into network marketing and began to do serious self-development. Soon my entire way of thinking changed. I began to experience a tremendous amount of guilt for the things I'd done. I started seeking out the people I'd hurt and apologizing. The hardest by far was apologizing to the people who owned the house I robbed. I almost threw up before knocking on the front door. The man and his wife were both home, heard me out and forgave me. Going through this phase in my life was painful but I'm grateful for the experience. It taught me that I didn't want to ever make money again by hurting others.
As the years passed, the self-development continued. My heart opened more and more. In my mid 30’s, I was called to take the Ike Pono seminar series. This resulted in my heart opening completely for the first time in my life. My objective now is to keep it that way. My nickname Namaste acts as a constant reminder to treat people with a deep level of love and respect. My guiding question is, “What would love do now?” I’m also on a quest to figure out how to get into the vortex through the love doorway, instead of the joy doorway. If you have personally succeeded in doing this, please share your experiences.
A friend of mine read The Power Of Now by Eckhart Tolle. He realized he had been missing out on the beauty in life. As he was explaining this to me, he illustrated it by pointing out a beautiful canopy of flowers we’d walked past, and asked, “Did you even notice those?” I got it. From that point forward, I began noticing all the beauty around me that I’d missed before. Today, I have developed a truly deep love and appreciation for nature. Sometimes things as simple as the wind rustling leaves in a tree can absolutely mesmerize me.
I juiced for a long time but I’ve fallen in love with my Nutri-Bullet blender. The fast clean up time is incredible. I eat between 25 and 60 percent raw each day.
Played soccer from 5 to 16 years old, walked away after my team played in Germany winning 10 out of 12 games (only place to go from there was pro and it wasn’t my calling). I love backpacking, snowboarding, hiking, and swimming in the ocean. I workout 4-6 times a week.
I sold Playboy and Hustler magazines out of my junior high school locker. I managed to pull off illegally skydiving at 17. I went to college but quickly grew irritated with being forced to learn about things that didn't make any money. I flipped the system the bird, took over responsibility for my own education and never looked back.
When I was 21, I got into door-to-door sales. My favorite part of selling door-to-door was the risk, sneaking into big buildings and beginning to sell. It was only a matter of time before security came looking for me. I have fond memories of running down random hallways with security in hot pursuit.
Between the ages of 25 and 27 I worked on a sex positive adult entertainment project. If you aren’t familiar with the sex positive movement click here. I got my first and only corporate job when I was 28; eight months later I tossed my tie in the trash and bailed for a multi-month trip to Southeast Asia.
In my early 30's, I had a set of experiences that proved to me that the world before my eyes is not real. The rebel in me realized this new information gave us a shot at having our cake and eating it too! When the idea showed up to turn this new info to my advantage, I jumped at the chance and began developing my guaranteed manifesting results system. Before I even finished my system, the lifestyle of my dreams began to manifest. After waiting 11 long years, I was finally able to move back to sunny Southern California. Today I live about 15 minutes for the beach. It's only a matter of time now before I am multi-millonaire, traveling the planet and making a massive difference on a global scale too.
I’m polyamorous. All this means is that I'm capable of being in love with more than one woman at the same time. Polyamory is not polygamy. Polygamy is where one man has multiple wives. Polyamory is where you and your significant other both have loving relationships with other people. Upon first hearing this many assume that polyamory is my lifestyle choice, the reality though is that it's the way I was born.
In 1948 Alfred Kinsey introduced the Heterosexual-Homosexual rating scale. The scale ranges from zero (totally heterosexual) to six (totally homosexual). Only a small percentage of people are born totally straight or totally gay, most fall somewhere in between. I believe the Kinsey scale can easily be adapted to a Monogamy-Polyamory rating scale. Zero on the scale would represent people who are born totally monogamous. Six would represent people who are born wired polyamorous, with most people falling somewhere in between. In recent years the term monogamish has gotten wide spread publicity. It’s a term that describes couples who aren’t poly but aren’t strictly monogamous either. I believe this term points to the truth, that many people are born hardwired to fall somewhere between being monogamous and polyamorous.
By my late 20's the signs that I am polyamorous were everywhere. I didn't know what polyamory was though so I didn't recognize any of them. The most obvious sign was that I was close with all my ex-girlfriends. Monogamous people center their lives around one partner, when a relationship is over, it's over. Poly people are the exact opposite. The women I got involved with always hated the fact that I had so many ex-girlfriends in my life. They always told me there was something wrong with that. I thought they nuts. I couldn't understand why anyone would cut people out of their lives that they were once in love with.
Since I didn't know I was poly, like everyone else, I was looking for "the one." In my early 30's, I manifested the woman of my dreams. She also hated all my ex's but could tell I loved her, so she did her best to ignore them. As time passed everyone asked if I was going to marry her? I was deeply in love with her but I had serious reservations about getting married. Everyone told me that I was just being a guy and I'd get over it. I married her but I didn't get over it. A year into marriage I heard about polyamory and finally figured out I'm polyamorous. This brought up a brutal mix of emotions. On one hand I was so relieved to find out that there were other people like me out there. On the other hand I now had a mess on my hands; I was in love with a very amazing but very monogamous woman. After ending my marriage (thankfully my former wife and I are still super close friends, I even helped her manifest a new man of her dreams) I made a decision to be very public about being poly. I’ve done this so I can educate people in hopes that I can save someone else the pain I went through. To learn more about polyamory click here.

I did Burning Man in August of 2005, Namaste was my playa name. I haven’t felt called back since but I have a feeling that will be changing in the near future.
I was 10 years old when I decided I was going to get rich. I started working a few months later. I got a paper route. I, quickly, turned that first paper route into a second, and then a third route. Then, I started pulling weeds, and graduated to mowing lawns. Eventually, I had my own landscaping business, with two part-time employees. I couldn’t do landscaping at night in the dark. So I got paid a lot of money to work writing research papers for my peers. After graduating high school, I went to college, but left when I saw an opportunity to make my first million by 21, in the network marketing industry.
Like most people who get into MLM, I struggled. Unlike most people, instead of quitting when things got tough, I found myself a multi-millionaire mentor. This first mentor wasn’t able to help me make my first million. So I went and found another network marketing millionaire to mentor me. That one didn’t work out either. I left MLM to get involved in door-to-door sales, determined to make my first million. By 23 I owned my own door-to-door advertising sales company. It made money but the transient nature of the people I was involved with caused me to lose taste for the business entirely. Now that I had some success under my belt, I went back in MLM with hopes of making it big. I found one of the youngest and most successful multi-millionaires to ever enter the MLM industry to mentor me. I gave it everything I had but I woke up 25 years old, struggling and in a fit of absolute rage. I was so angry that I couldn’t speak. I didn’t talk to anyone for almost three days. After I calmed down, I decided it was time to leave MLM for good. I set out to find another business that would allow me to get rich, travel the planet and make a massive difference too.
During the following years, my life would have been infinitely easier if I’d given up on my dream. Despite the hardships and failures, I never took my eye off the goal. Every single business I got involved in always had the potential to bring me the payoff I wanted. I knew to win big, I had to risk big so I risked and sucked it up when things didn’t work out. I knew I was learning. I knew from listening to a Brian Tracey interview that many young entrepreneurs failed 17 times before making their first million so I just kept going.
In my early 30’s I had a number of experiences that proved to me that the reality before my eyes wasn’t as it seemed. It took me a while to figure out what to do this this information, but when the opportunity arrived, I knew what I had to do. I completely dedicated myself to figuring out how to manifest millions of dollars and the lifestyle of my dreams. It took almost six years of non-stop research, analyzing and testing but I did it. I figured out how to manifest guaranteed results. Mark my words, the reason I will be a multi-millionaire before I’m 40 years old is I’ve never given an inch when it came to my dream. I’ve never swung for anything less than a grand slam home run. I know from experience that I finally have all the necessary ingredients I need to pull this off and now it truly is my time.
I'm intense. Classic example is between April 2014 and August 2015, I worked almost 485 days straight, I only took like eight days off. When people ask me how I can work like that, I reply, "I'm not working, I'm playing. When you truly love what you do, you'll never work another day in your life." The fact that I get paid to do this stuff is an absolute dream come true for me. I put in so many years preparing to get to this point. Now I just want build, build, build and watch my dream come alive =)
OBSESSED WITH HELPING OTHERS
I was 21 years old when I bought the book LOSING MY VIRGINITY by multi-billionaire Richard Branson. At the end of the book he posed the question, “If you knew that you couldn’t fail, if you were guaranteed to succeed, what would you do?” I realized all I wanted to do was help other people make their dreams come true. The problem was I had no idea how to do that. (I was involved with network marketing at the time. I knew I could help some people through my MLM opportunity but I wanted to be able to help everyone.) I began looking elsewhere. Thus began a 17-year journey looking for a system that would allow me to truly help anyone make their dreams come true.
I could have easily gotten rich by the time I was 30, if my dream wasn’t centered on helping other people to achieve their dreams too. Figuring out how to do that was the bottleneck. I went through book after book, program after program, and system after system trying to figure out how to do this. Of course I looked at traditional life coaching but I found it to be a joke. I'd use methods like s.m.a.r.t. goals with some people and they'd succeed, I'd use the exact same techniques with others and they'd fail. People told me that was life, that some people are always going to fail. I refused to accept that way of thinking. If a person did everything I said to do and they failed, it was the system failing, not the person. For 17 long years, no matter what I tried, nothing worked up to my standards. I don’t know when finding a guaranteed way to help people achieve their dreams turned into a full out life consuming obsession. All I know is that it happened. As with anything else, there are pros and cons to being absolutely consumed and obsessed…
The pros of being obsessed are waking up every day feeling that life has meaning and purpose. I’m never bored. I have an almost inexhaustible amount of energy with which to pursue this obsession. I’ve been able to lead an interesting life, meet fascinating people, and have had the opportunity to experience a number of peak moments that are truly priceless.
The cons are that the past 17 years has passed in a blur. Business partners came and went. I endured opening and closing 29 projects that didn't meet my standards for helping people to make their dreams come true. Imagine spending your entire adult life pursuing a single goal and experiencing 1, 5, 10, 15, 17 years of failure. Sometimes I was able to secure funding for the projects, other times I’ve had to pay for them through working day jobs that didn't require a college degree. I was never able to figure out how to successfully pursue any of the 29 projects on my nights and weekends, so I’ve seriously never gotten a job that I didn’t plan on quitting the moment the next project opened. The price of living like this is that my resume is a joke. It’s filled with entry level jobs and obviously long and unexplainable gaps in my employment history. Being that I’ve launched a number of businesses on shoe string budgets, I’ve lived in an abandoned house once, another time I spent six months sleeping in a closet. I’ve had to move home on three separate occasions after projects have failed because they totally wiped me out. If you are thinking that I sound like an addict, my lifestyle certainly shared many similarities with theirs, the only difference really is they are addicted to a drug and I’m addicted to a dream. Time for romantic relationships, sex, hanging out with friends etc almost always got put to the side so that it didn’t get in the way of pursuing my obsession. When I was married, I only saw my wife one day a week. Watching my friends get married, buy homes, nice cars, have kids and start making serious money hasn’t been fun. Honestly I don’t care about anything else though, I don’t want anything else, figuring out how to help people make their dreams come true is totally it for me, hence the reason I say I'm absolutely obsessed.
Certainly not a life that many would wish for themselves, but then you’ve just finished reading the price I’ve paid in pursuit of this obsession, I haven’t mentioned the rewards for pulling it off yet. Now that I’m finally found my guaranteed manifesting results system, I’m looking forward to an incredibly bright future. The payoff is getting to live a life that almost everyone dreams about, but only a few will ever actually experience. Wealth and fame are a given, the not so obvious rewards are waking up every single day knowing that I changed the lives of an uncountable amount of people, that I'm not an observer of these times but one who is helping shape them; and that what I've done in this life truly will echo out into eternity.
Obviously, I’m driven to help others through my business.
I'm also a proud supporter of Kiva, NFTE and Smile Train:

I've been an entrepreneur all of my life. I started my first business when I was five or six years old. I was voted Most Likely To Succeed by my high school class because I owned a business in high school. I don’t think there has ever been a time I can remember when I wasn’t either researching a business or running one. It’s what I do. It’s who I am.
When I was twelve, I became interested in bringing people together, who were like me, and helping them get what they wanted. Why? It was a lot of fun. And I got what I wanted too. I did this throughout my teenage years. Then, I headed off to college. I was only a few months into my freshman year of college when I attended my first network marketing business meeting. It was a dream come true for me. Here was an opportunity to make my first million doing what I loved to do most! I dropped out of college and never looked back.
Being a network marketer was both an amazing and brutal experience. It was an amazing experience because of the travel, the personal growth I experienced, and the people I met. It was a brutal experience because the network marketing vehicle only allowed me to help the few who were really willing to commit their lives to this business like I was. Positively, I saw that it was possible to build an organization of people that spanned the entire globe. There are network marketing leaders that have more people on their global sales teams than some countries have citizens. And when a major network marketing leader gets behind a charity or cause, and enrolls their global sales teams in that cause, millions of dollars are raised; lives are changed; magic happens.
When I was 25 years old, I concluded that I had to figure out how to help people achieve their dreams through some other means besides my network marketing opportunity. I knew I needed a dream achievement system. So I began studying and testing them. I never considered the Law of Attraction because despite my many successes, I still experienced inconsistent results. When I was 32, my girlfriend challenged me to see if I could figure out how to produce guaranteed manifesting results. I decided to take her up on her challenge and it’s what I’ve been doing every since.
In August of 2015, I released my manifesting checklist to the public that makes guaranteed results possible. I will be training other coaches on how to utilize the checklist to help their clients experience guaranteed manifesting results as well. And most importantly I’ll begin building the school of my dreams. A school that can help anyone who invests their time into learning the skills we teach to be able to achieve their dreams, a school that will grow and expand around the world, a school that will educate people who will play a part in influencing the course of human history one day (click here for more details).
