Well, if you clicked this far into the website, you are either genuinely interested in the work I do, or you are a close friend looking for ammunition to make fun of me later. Either way, I appreciate the diligence.
I will go over the basics first. I grew up in small town Minnesota. I had an excellent up bringing! I had just enough freedom to cause problems, with just the right support system to move past them. I graduated high school first of my class. NOT! My grades were terrible and I barely graduated... lack of motivation or some such nonsense.
With the help of my beautiful mother, I squirmed my way in to a college not too far from home. After an amazing six years, I graduated with a degree in Political Science.
It wasn't until after college that I realized the importance of money. My firm philosophy before that had been "do what you love, money doesn't matter." I still see the value in that mantra, but you have to be practical. This is the same mindset that Developing passive income came from.
I wouldn't be completely honest unless I mentioned the importance of martial arts and physicality in my life. I have been training Shotokan Karate for roughly 15 years. After I received my black belt, and later on, my 2nd degree black belt, my passion for the art increased exponentially. I made a point to study different arts and learn the mental, physical, and business side of as many arts as possible
I share all of my business related teaching wisdom in teaching the martial arts. Having personally taught for about 10 years, I know a thing or two in regards to creating martial arts clubs.
Currently, I am devoting all my time and energy to writing the Chosen by the Blade series, set to release fall of 2018!

I posted a picture of my dog, Luna. I'm not lame, I promise... How cool is that picture though. It looks like her senior picture from puppy high school.
