My Story

By any traditional measure I was living a “successful” life. In high school I excelled at academics, was president of the student body and captain of the basketball team. After graduating from Columbia University at the age of 21 I founded my first company. Three years later I started the online division of a leading Italian motorcycle company. At age 30 I founded my second business and raised several million dollars from investors and venture capital funds. But despite professional success and personal accolades, I lived a life at the mercy of my own thinking. It was never good enough, I was never doing enough, and it was never fast enough. I worried about my finances, I lived in a world of comparing myself to others, and I was consistently dissatisfied with relationships. When I wasn’t burying myself in my work, I was going out on the weekend and binge drinking, immersing myself in the latest reality television series, browsing the web for endless hours, or obsessively monitoring my social media accounts. My entire life had become a distraction from myself. Finally, at age 34 my thoughts broke me.

In 2009 my therapist, after observing a constant cycle of depression, anxiety, failed personal relationships and drug and alcohol abuse, recommended I participate in a 12-step program of recovery. I came to understand that recovery, and 12-step, was a framework for living life without suffering. The 12 Steps gave me a set of tools, and a way to live life, which helped me reconnect with the parts of me that I lost along the way; what I might call my authentic self. After all, that’s what recovery is – getting back something that was lost, or stolen. At about the same time, while on a rare vacation, I noticed a book while walking through an airport gift shop and decided to pick it up for some casual reading on my flight. Once I began reading “Awakening the Buddha Within,” by Lama Surya Das, I couldn’t put the book down. It was another framework, this time Buddhism, which provided a method by which one could live life, and avoid the suffering that had been quietly growing in my unconscious mind for many years. Through a series of synchronicities my library began to unfold book by book with answers to the questions I had just at the right moment over the course of my awakening. First Kingdom Principles, a book by Myles Munroe, which is a Christian framework for living life without suffering. Then Think & Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill, a framework based on Hill’s interview of the most creative and successful people in the world, for living life not just devoid of suffering, but powerfully. One by one I found these extraordinary frameworks for living and I began to see patterns and pieces of what would ultimately create a picture of a new, powerful identity and reality for myself.

Years later, I’ve studied many of the major teachings and topics spanning over 3,000 years and across science, philosophy, religion, spirituality, metaphysics, quantum physics and neuroscience. I’ve had dozens of mentors, sponsors, coaches, therapists and teachers. I’ve developed a regular practice of meditation, visualization, gratitude, emotional releasing techniques and transformative personal practices that allow me to wake up each day and know who I am, and how to live life powerfully and creatively. I experience life through the lens of a new framework which allows me to transform life’s challenges into life-changing opportunities. This extraordinary new framework for living, and stepping into that life with a new powerful sense of Self is what is offered in the Powerful Living Experience and throughout all of my work. Everything is available to us within the Powerful Living framework. There are no exceptions. We are powerful creators made in the image of the creative power of the Universe itself, and it is time now to actually start believing and living it. I hope you’ll join me on this extraordinary journey.
