Hi, I'm David - an Investor and Coach on a journey to help Entrepreneurs achieve their dream levels of success and joy in life.Learn More
I've been on a path of self discovery and exploration, that has taken me through many teaching life experiences..
Founding a startup, Serving as an officer in the Israeli military, Vipasanna Meditation Retreat, Founding and growing the largest Locksmith company in Colorado, Plant Medicine Retreat in the Amazon, Founding a remote Digital Marketing Company, Living and traveling as a Digital Nomad in places like Bali, Vietnam, Thailand, Myanmar, Colombia..
and the list goes on.
During my military service, I was "ON" 24/7 for 4.5 years. Sleeping 4-5 hours a night on a good day, and being responsible for 80 men definitely took its toll on me in terms of stress and anxiety.
Then after starting many failed businesses, my digital agency saw some success..
Larger team, larger payroll, larger stress..
Here I was 30 years old and I was burning out hard. I was working 15 hour days almost every day, shuffling between client meetings, managing my team, sales calls, and doing client work to make sure everything holds together.
I started talking to my friends about quitting my marketing agency I've been working so hard to build for the past 2 years.
It was the beginning May of 2018, I looked at the projections for the month..and my eyes went dark.
If nothing changed, I'd be losing $10,000 by the end of the month. I'd have to hustle my butt off in the next few weeks, just to not lose money.
Magical things happen when you HAVE to make money. I hustled and the month ended in the black, but I knew something had to change..
I wanted to create a sustainable digital agency, that makes enough money to support my lifestyle, and does not require my day to day involvement so I can focus on personal growth, travel, work on other businesses and enjoy life.
Instead..I've created a highly stressful job, WITH the downsides of running a business: payroll..managing a team..dealing with clients...and ultimate responsibility. Something definitely went wrong along the way..
Then an epiphany came.
If lifestyle, travel, and enjoyment are the ultimate goal..why not get there faster?
Making the decision was not easy..I was afraid of letting my team down, losing clients, and letting go of the vision and goals that I've been working on so hard.
That was a turning point, and things started to change very fast.
Only a couple of months later, I found myself living out of Bali and Asia, working 10-15 hours a week and focusing on things like learning how to surf, acquiring a new business, and meeting amazing new friends...
All the while, making more net income and working less than I did before.
This experience has taught me that so much of my limitations were just in my own head, due to my limiting beliefs.
Since then, I've been exploring the path of a lifestyle entrepreneur --> one that prioritises joy and happiness over "success" and "grind". To my surprise, I've disproven my limiting beliefs of "I have to work very hard all the time to be successful" again and again, and continue to be amazed at how much joy AND success are possible when you operate from alignment.
My goal is to share those lessons with you, and bring others on this path to the spotlight so entrepreneurs who are not satisfied with the traditional "grind & hustle" message find there is an an alternative..a middle path between the extreme of Type A 80 hour work weeks, to the almost hippie 4 hour work week approach.
To your success and growth,
