Get Your Gusto Back

Someone else decided what you were going to do with your life. They decided how much money you were going to make, where you were going to work, what you were capable of achieving, and even how many people you were going to impact… all before you got any say on the matter. Your family, your friends, your teachers — all people who meant well — they unintentionally taught you that living a mediocre life would satisfy your soul. But you know as well as I do… it doesn’t. Now, you want to reignite your inner fire and create a life that excites you. You want to have a lot of fun, make a lot of money, and have a massive impact on the world. You want to reclaim your child-like spark for adventure and live the life you’ve always dreamed of living. But… how are you going to do it? By this point, you’ve almost entirely lost sight of what your dream life looks like… much less how to achieve your dreams. Well, one year ago, I quit my job, sold my house, and traveled the world for an entire year with my wife and one-year-old daughter. Now, I’m living my dream life in Hawaii, surfing more than anybody deserves. But it was a process. And I’m not saying you need to do anything nearly as crazy as what I did… but I am saying that I know a thing or two about building a person’s dream life from scratch. And now I want to help you get your gusto back. (Because helping people like you is what really ignites my inner fire) Are you ready?
