It’s a great job and I do it all from a beautiful houseboat on Toronto Island and winter home in Costa Rica where I write, surf, swim and play in the ocean. I also make records, play in a band and speak to audiences all over the world.

People often tell me I’m living the dream. It’s true. But this dream is a conscious choice, one I created and re-make for myself on a daily basis. It didn’t come easy.
I started my career as an entrepreneur at the age of six and founded my first international company at 15. It was all about what I loved, skateboarding, and after ten years it failed grandly.
My next business was also something I loved and grew it into millions. When I sold it, Limited Snowboards was represented in 14 countries world-wide. A year later I had nothing. Wife, house, car, money- all gone. And, perhaps worse, so were my bearings.
What happened that things could things go so wrong, twice? Short answer, I knew too much. About the sport, the industry, the places, people and the products. At the peak of the snowboard industry I was a director of the biggest on-snow trade association in the world and even wrote articles on the state of the industry. But all around me were things I didn’t see. Things I’d never experienced and eventually I made the wrong decisions.
At first my passion drove me to learn everything. I inhaled the culture, media, stories and gossip. I went to every trade show, met my heroes and found mentors. And I grew.
I became totally immersed and successful. I believed I had the answers. I stopped seeking feedback. I didn’t ask for help. All leaders lose perspective sooner or later.
My story doesn’t end here. Over the next ten years I built eight more companies and, in spite of many successes across numerous industries, once again found myself on the precipice of yet another serious downfall. Full stop.
Losing everything for a third time is no charm. I had to know what led me back to this place. Looking back I realized it had been over a decade since I had a real mentor or been part of an inner circle of leaders. I had isolated myself in the knowledge that I was good at making things happen.
This was wasn’t just ego. It was a belief pattern and way of operating in the world and because it got me to where I was, I couldn’t let go of it.
To help myself I reached out to leaders I admired. People I looked up to. I asked them to join me in a Mastermind group, a confidential place to ask each other for feedback and share resources. It changed my life.
I have proven that I know how to create opportunity and now I know how we lose it.
I want to make sure that does not happen to you.
This is what I do now: Point out your blind spots and your best opportunities. Help you see things you don’t see and connect you to a life-changing network of support and resources. My mission is to give you the perspective that you lose as a leader. To combat the isolation success creates and the bad decisions that come with it.
