My Story

The Simple Version: I grew up in a small outport town on Newfoundland Island located in Atlantic Canada. After graduating from high school, I moved to the historic city of St. John’s, Newfoundland where I attended college and started a career as a sign and graphic artist.

At the beginning of the great recession (2008-2009), I blindly ventured into the fine arts world as a sculptural artist. This experience would become a major eye-opener as I realized that my previous education and upbringing did not prepare me for reality, or at least the reality that I truly desired. In 2012 I staggered back to the life of a regular day job.

By 2017 I became intrigued by those who were living on the upper end of society. That’s when I started on this amazing journey of self-development and success psychology.

The Philosophical Version: I grew up on the end of society where most people were either running blind or just sitting in the dark. Nobody talked about money except to say that it wasn’t important, or that it wouldn’t make you happy. Yet, they continued to buy those pretty lotto tickets and toil their lives away to make very little of it and then complain that everything was too expensive.

Very few people spoke about health, vitality or longevity. However, when they did it was usually some shallow and misleading garbage created by bad cultural beliefs, commercialism or some viral shit that was circulating on social media.

Sadly, most people around me appeared to be living a small life of dullness and/or misery just to have what they called happiness. From my perspective, their happiness appeared to be a facade supported by heavy debt loads and fake smiles with no apparent passion for life.

On the verge of 2017, I realized that I was slipping into a similar void. It appeared that I was stuck on some life-long chapter that was going nowhere. It didn’t seem to have any kind of evolving story with a beginning, middle or end. It was like I was reading the same paragraph of my life over and over, day after day, year after year.

During this period, I realized that I, too, was programmed to run blind and stay within the rigid social ruts like everyone else around me. However, a low tolerance threshold within ignited a spark of rejuvenation. My journey to study success and wealth psychology had begun.
