Hometown: Winona, MN
First job: 15 years old; dishwasher at a Mexican restaurant in Chula Vista
Favorite ways to spend your free time in AZ: Anything outside with my wife and dog.
Your biggest accomplishment and why: The community that we have built here in Scottsdale and all around the world through sharing and educating people on how to live a healthier, happier life. The community to me is everything and the relationships we have built while serving them.
The biggest obstacle you overcame: My personal health struggles early on forced me to re-evaluate my lifestyle and the choices I was making. I become the first-ever transformation client by doing a total 180 on how I was eating, drinking, as well as the things I was reading and watching. Some of those rough times forced me to grow into a healthier, more mindful person.
Someone who inspires you and why: If we are talking historical figures, the lines of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and President Abraham Lincoln come to mind in terms of the impact they had on the world that has rippled on for decades to make it a better place for us all. Close to me, I would say my wife, Heather, for being there with me since day one, believing in this journey and supporting it all while building a career of her own.
Advice to someone pursuing a career path in what you do: Don’t do it for the money; do it because you love it and want to serve people and make their lives better. If you get into this just for money, you will fail. On the same note, if you love it and help enough people, you will make more money than you could imagine.
Favorite quote: “Happiness is only real when shared.” –Christopher McCandless
Something someone would be surprised to learn about you: I love bowling.
What makes someone fabulous: Being kind to others. In the end, most people will not be remembered for their job title or the things they had but how they made others feel.
