I didn’t always have a clear vision. In fact, I didn’t really wake up and start attacking life until my early twenties. It took a few failures in business and a journey through the military to wake me up. One day God flipped my switch and I haven’t looked back since. I don’t claim to be an expert in much but I try to hold myself and everything I do to very high standards. You’ve already seen my life timeline above, but who am I really? Well, at my core, I genuinely care about helping others rise above. I am a family man, advocate for total life preparedness, and my life’s mission is to be the lighthouse for as many people as possible. I hope to accomplish this goal by being transparent about my life, creating content that inspires action, and products and services that solve big problems.
