Personal development has been one of the central focuses in my life since April of 2011. I study what it means to grow and how we can become conscious creators of our destiny.
What will help us grow faster and get more out of life? What patterns slow us down or cause stagnation? I’m at the stage in life where I’m finding answers to these questions through study and direct experience. What I have learned is that intelligence is the ultimate driver of personal growth. The more intelligent we become, the faster we grow.
I read, research, explore, experiment, contemplate, test, and refine ideas. As I discover more meaningful insights, I share them via my blog, my instagram, and my YouTube channel. I’m also a public speaker and I share my growth experiences through my speeches.
I do what I can to support people on their path of personal development. I encourage people to be generous and give the best possible value to the world as possible. This way all of humanity can reap the benefits.
Before I became a personal development coach in 2017, I was one of the top Army Cadets in all of Canada during the period between 2006 and 2012. The main skills I developed in cadets were military drill, shooting rifles, leadership, physical fitness, instructional skills, and survival skills. For the last 2 years of my cadet career I was the Drill Sergeant Major, and for the last 6 months of my cadet career I was the Chief Warrant Officer of my unit. When I joined in 2006 I set the goal of becoming the CWO one day, and on June 3rd 2012 this goal became a reality! On Dec 19 2012 I retired from Army cadets at the age of 18 years old.
Between 2012 and 2016 I had no idea what I wanted to do as a career, or so I thought. In actuality I knew all along I wanted to be a personal development coach but I thought that dream wasn’t possible. But in 2016 I met my own personal development coach who helped me realize that I too am capable of being a very good coach.
My friends and clients inspire me, their results often exceed my own, and their encouraging feedback makes me want to keep growing, exploring, writing, and speaking. We all grow faster when we support one another.
Although many people don’t know much about what I have to offer in personal development, I remain confident that my coaching practice will take off. I consider myself a humble and grateful student of life first and foremost, and I love being in the beginner phase of learning something new such as coaching because that’s when I learn the fastest.
Currently I work 6 hours a week and live on a disability pension. I haven’t worked full time for a sustained period since my Army Cadet days in 2012; being a slave to a corporation is something I could never do. I define my own objectives, choose my own projects, and work because I love to work.
My inspiration to pursue a jobless yet fulfilling lifestyle came from Steve Pavlina, who is one of my role models to this day. I realized that in order for me to be happy, I can’t call someone else my boss full time. I want total freedom to set my schedule and decide who I deal with. I want to do work that inspires me every single day. Right now in my life money has little relevance, I have enough to pay for my basic needs. What has quite a lot of relevance is my desire to help other people grow.
I’m an entrepreneur since I run my own coaching practice and personal development website. But making money isn’t my number one goal, nor am I looking to build a business empire. I have enough income to enjoy the small pleasures of life, and as I create more value I will be able to buy more pleasures and reinvest into my own company so I can help more people grow. To me wealth is found in friendships, relationships, and social goodwill, it’s not found in money first and foremost.
I have a deep and abiding trust in life and the universe, and I always give life the benefit of the doubt because deep down, I know everything in life is always going on in divine order. I live my life to the fullest, I love to make people laugh, especially my hockey buddies.
When a person dies, I’m not going to mourn their death; I’m going to celebrate their life. When I die, I want people to throw a party instead of a funeral. Just be sure that it’s not on the night of a Sens game, I wouldn’t want my best friends to miss a hockey game.
My life purpose is:
To increase the quality of consciousness with the highest good of all in mind, leaving the world a better place then I found it!
