Over 20 year ago, I was simply a young man with a dream. I wanted to be able to provide for my family and do something significant with my life. I found a mentor who helped shape an early belief system that through hard work and perseverance I could accomplish anything I set my mind to. After 10 years I found myself making over a million dollars a year and speaking all around the world. I had everything most men could ever dream of. I had a wife, kids, fame and fortune. Unfortunately I hadn’t developed the character required to live in a way that could sustain these blessings. I made some terrible choices and it cost me nearly everything.
Words cannot begin to explain the shame and condemnation that I felt for the years following the epic event of a divorce. I lost my family, friends, and fortune. It was in these darkest moments that I realized that I needed to make some changes. I had to look deep inside myself and ask myself who am I, how did I get here, and what do I need to change to restore my life.
It’s been a long challenging 5 years of developing a new self-image of who I am, why I am here and then making the necessary changes in my life to honor who I believe God created me to be. I was told by many that I would never be able to impact people’s lives in a positive way as a result of the choices I have made. I now know that God uses all things for the greater good. Clearly it was not his wish for me to make the choices I made, but when I did he took me through a restoration process that now I believe I am called to help others either avoid or recover from similar decisions.
On November 11th, 2013 I was remarried to the woman who is greatly responsible for leading me to and through my restoration process. Shelly Proudfoot-Wolgamott and I have spent a lifetime of studying excellence and grace. I believe for the rest of our lives we have been called to help people discover God’s perspective of them and how important it is build a relationship with our loving father. I would like you to know that you are loved, forgiven, and promised a life of favor. I hope that I can get to know you in a way that you can trust me enough to let me help you discover your true identity and greatness.
As a young corporate employee my dream was to climb the corporate ladder. I went to college for business and believed that I would either become a CEO or Entrepreneur. I worked for a large utility company in Canada and gradually climbed to ladder into management. I reached my goals in the company sooner than I expected but when I started hitting goals I began to realize at an early age that my target was placed in the wrong direction.
I observed that the higher up you got in a corporation, the more time commitments and responsibilities were expected of you. At this point I made the decision that my time and health was more important to me than money. I simplified my life and began to pursue a life of adventure, excitement and passion. I had been through my own relationship ups and downs and was not proud of the fact that I was young and divorced but I refused to let it define my life.
Making the choice to leave the stability of a 9-5 job with a stable paycheck was a scary thing to do but I didn’t want to continue day after day working to achieve someone else’s goals. I decided that my life was worth living on purpose.
When Brad and I met, we shared a similar sense of adventure and excitements for life. We spent time getting to know each other on the slopes with our snowboard, or hiking mountain peaks. The thrill of travelling to the roads less travelled was very exciting for me. Brad helped to mentor me to succeed as an entrepreneur so that I could find ways to work smart rather than work hard. I had to make a mental adjustment from working for a paycheck to working for a future. The work I did, didn’t create instant wealth but it created enough freedom for me to life a live on purpose without giving up all my time.
Brad and I are now married and are very passionate to help people discover how they want to live and find ways to help them achieve it. All too often, people end up in a life of chance; a life that happened as a result of other people making decisions for us. We want to help people take back the control of their life and live powerful lives. We refuse to believe that we are a victim of other people’s actions or decisions. We want to help you overcome the obstacles in your life that are holding you back from living your life on purpose.
