Thanks for checking out my blog for creating wealth and freedom lifestyle! 

Since you're on this page, I'm making the assumption that you'd like to know more about me and what this website is all about.

I'm into martial arts, foreign movies, progressive music, and I've traveled to over 200 cities around the world. While I've received a B.S. in engineering, I worked as a financial consultant for over 10 years.

My 1st Business

When I was 18 years old, my brother and I joined a "business opportunity."  It was one of the oldest of its kind selling soap and home products.  Looking back, it was kind of silly.  We started wearing suits and ties and prospected around our small town of about 20,000 people.  

People were curious why we were dressed that way.  Some people thought we were promoting our church and others just thought it was weird since we were really just a pair of young kids out of high school.

Several years after that, I realized that all business aren't equal.  It was at that time that I was running my financial consulting business. Some people think that they want to build a business so that they can be independent.  Many times, my business felt like a job. I would canvas the streets, knocking on doors and even meeting people in the shopping mall for business reasons.

You might wonder how I could even deal with all of that.  Yeah, it was tough.  Every day I had to psych myself up before becoming a human punching bag.  I really do think that reading sales, marketing, and small business books helped in building up my mindset.

The Missing Piece: Leverage

After running my financial business for over 5 years, I realized that I made a major mistake.  I didn't use "leverage."  I wasn't leveraging tools, automation, or people.  

I did learn a lot. Those experiences helped me become the person I am today and I learned from many people throughout the world. It's been a fantastic ride!

Things started to shift after I changed my focus to passive income strategies for creating a freedom lifestyle.

It doesn't matter if you're creating wealth through:

  • Real estate
  • Your business, or
  • Stocks and mutual funds

All of these can grow exponentially if you're using leverage.

So that's what this site is all about.

Leverage, optimize, and diversify!

To your success!
