As a business owner and entrepreneur I work hard to support my wife and children. My family always comes first. I love to learn and grow, and I've found that writing helps me in the learning process. My books that I've written are for my future posterity to teach them principles that I hold dear and believe will provide them a greater understanding of life and how to achieve happiness and peace. In 2009, I published my first book entitled; "Real Wealth: A Success Formula." The book is based on my proprietary program that I developed for my clients to help them develop financial plans that met their every need. As a financial planner I've been the keynote speaker in many seminars and I've conducted financial classes for many youth groups as well. In 2005, I was awarded the Businessman of the Year by the NRCC and again in 2006. In 2007 I was again recognized by the NRCC as a Champion of Conservative Principles in Business and awarded the Ronald Reagan Gold Medal for excellence. In 2012 I received recognition as a Business Innovator by the Tooele County Business Development Council. I served on the National Congressional Business Advisory Council from 2004 to 2007. I ended my work with them, when I realized that our elected officials didn't want to create lasting solutions if it took away a political edge for them. I love helping people. My whole work life has been organized around helping others succeed and thereby helping our Country get back on track and become strong again.
