    Helping business owners live their best life possible is my mission, passion…it’s my obsession.I’ve worked with the best-of-the-best consultants in human longevity for over 20 years. These people have proprietary information about how long people actually live.I’ve read over 2000 books about clinical psychotherapy, social psychology, sports performance management, general performance management, cultural anthropology, and neurology. I’ve co-authored the go-to book for using proprietary actuarial data to beat the life insurance companies at their own game.After decades of study, I realized two critical factors keep people from living their best life possible, no matter how old or young, and surprisingly, no mater how successful they are:

    1)Most people drastically underestimate how long they will live
    2)Our culture promotes and reinforces a way of living that wastes the best and most productive years of our lives

    Culture is causing the greatest waste of human potential in history.Culture is the culprit!With my colleagues at The Vital Longevity Institute, I developed something never available before. The Vitalign System is the first and only human performance technology that works with your subconscious, conscious and self-image to shift your perception of time to create permanent, positive change, and increase your vitality, happiness and longevity. By combining age-old wisdom, cutting-edge science, and some very chill technology, we deliver a course of simple but effective Experiential Learning workshops and rapid change exercises to transform how you experience life.
