The truth you may
not know about me...
It’s Dec 11, 2015, and I’m lying on a bed in Los Angeles at 10 a.m. I’m lying down because I’ve just had surgery on my knee, I can’t walk. Now it’s not my bed, because I don’t have a bed, I’m homeless. I have only a car, Honda Accord 2010. Fortunately family friends are letting me stay in their guest room for a few days while I recuperate. I’m staring at Facebook. I’m contemplating a big decision, the decision to press post or delete.
I own my own business at the time – I am a door to door solar sales consultant. I’ve been at it for 1 year and it’s been both exciting – owning my own business – and disheartening. On the exciting note, I’m a guy that thought i’d be working for others my entire life. It’s just how I saw myself, including believing that I’d probably always struggle to make more than 30k a year. But a year ago, I made the move from selling for someone else, to owning my own consultancy selling. And the freedom to work on my own schedule was exciting. But the disheartening part was i thought owning my own biz would mean much more profit. But the reality was so much more work and not so much profit. That brings me to this bed, homeless. I wasn’t able to make enough money to even pay the $250 rent I needed in order to keep sleeping on the floor in a cramped apartment with 4 other people.
As I said, I’m staring at Facebook with my leg up and I’m contemplating a big decision. The decision to press post or delete. The post shares the story of a massive fitness transformation I made in the last year – where I gained 15 lbs of muscle in 30 days and lost 10% body fat in the following 7 months – and now this post makes an offer inviting others to make their body transformation with me as their
coach, for $1000.
Here’s the thing, recently I had seen a friend of mine, making a full time income as an online fitness coach. So… I’m thinking maybe it’s time for a career change. But who am I? I have no experience coaching others? I have no idea how to market online. I have no idea how to run a successful business, that much is clear. So my finger is hovering over the post button, but my eyes are on the delete button. In some movie, they say all it takes is 20 seconds of courage. So I take a deep breath and press Post!
The next day I wake up to my first sale –
$1000 for an 8 week fitness program and I’m jumping for joy (figuratively speaking, I did just have
surgery after all) and I do put together a program – enrolling the help of my brother who
is a trainer – and that first client lost 32 lbs in the next 12 weeks.
So, for the next few months I’m off to the races with my new business – but I’m still living in my Honda,
thank god for it – because I’m struggling to make more than $1000 or $2000 a month.
So here’s what happens next. I hear about this business coach who sounds right for me. But to afford him, I have to put ALL my money in, and borrow from my dad, and use the final payment from the final solar sale I ever. Put it all into this biz coach. And in the next month, working him, I went to $4000, enough to pay rent but not enough to pay for a 2nd month of coaching. So choice point.
Looking around I couldn’t go further into debt. Not because I didn’t want to. Because no one else would
give me another credit card. Maxed out. But I really wanted another month of coaching,
so the only asset i had remaining was my Honda.
For me, it represented freedom and my ability to go back
to door to door sales if things didn’t work out.
In a moment that may have taken more courage than anything else I’ve done, I sold my car to pay my
coach. I figured, I could keep the illusion of freedom or give it up and gain true freedom,
the ability to create income on demand.
After that, $16,000, then $19000. You get the picture. 6 figures cash in my first 9 months since I started. Then people started asking me, how did you do this?! “No, I’m not telling you shit! These are my secrets! No one else is going to know about them but me.
Afterwards, I realized the reason why I became a coach is because of my passion to help transform their bodies. For me, as an adult, nothing gave me a sense of certainty and control over my own destiny like transforming my body. I want to help as many people as I could to experience this gift of total transformation. If I was going to help other fitness coaches grow their businesses, then it
would have the byproduct effect of helping far more fitness clients transform their bodies,
because I wouldn’t be the only coaching the fitness clients.
Greater impact became clear,
helping as many fitness coaches quit their jobs and go full time in their business is the fastest route to a more fit, more kind, more loving world. That’s why I created the Wealthy Coach Academy, so I could help fitness coaches create a full time income doing what they love, and help them create a full time income faster than anyone else is doing.
That’s why the mission of the Wealthy Coach Academy is to help fitness coaches create a six figure earning business within 90 days or less, using high ticket coaching.

I look forward to helping you build your dream business, the world needs more coaches who have the business of their dreams. Because no one does good for the world like coaches, people
who’s careers exist to help others create the life of their dreams.
