I am passionate about moving people to purposeful results. My overall core philosophy is simple – “move you, move others”. You have to move in order to accomplish anything.


At age 16, my first car was a 1988 manual five-speed stick shift Nissan Sentra. Today, I believe that each and every one of us must shift through five speeds in work and life to “move you, move others” towards success and happiness. Moves 1, 2, and 3 are all about moving you. Moves 4 and 5 are about moving others.

Move to GROW

The move system never expires, not even in the tech savvy world that surrounds each of us today. Technology cannot change the move system. The moves are always trending. There is no phone app, and no short cuts that exist within the 5 moves.


Choose your moves carefully. These have worked wonders for me in my life, as well as others that I’ve taught these moves to over the years; however, it’s also important to note that you should not feel limited by solely using these 5 moves. There are not necessarily only 5 moves. It all boils down to the person, the place, the situation, and other determining factors and variables that affect each unique situation. You can take a move away, or even add an additional move in certain scenarios. Personal growth and development must be personalized to each individual person, as there is no standardized, uniform formula for everyone. It’s important to note that you must enjoy performing the moves. If you’re moving, you’re busy no matter what you’re doing, so why not enjoy the moves that you’re making? I constantly hear people complain of how busy they are, and each time I hear that I remind them that it’s not the destination we should be striving for, it’s enjoying the journey.
