Who said you that you had to work 30 - 40 years on a job until someone told you it was okay to retire? Are you okay with giving up that much time of your life? What if I told you there was a way you could live financially independent and reduce your retirement time by years?

Three Primary Reasons We Stay on Our Jobs as Long as We Do:


1. We were taught we had to work until someone told us we were eligible to retire based on their criteria


 2. We need the money to sustain our lifestyle and handle our financial responsibilities


3. So we can be financially secure in retirement and have enough to maintain a decent standard of living.

4.  The fear associated with the risk and unfamiliarity of trying something new and unfamiliar


Here's the Catch

These are the very reasons I planned to stay on my job for 40 years. It was what my parents did and consequently taught me to do.

However, two things happened that caused me to totally "lose faith" in this pathway for  my life:

1) my salary on my first job was 40% less than expected and wasn't enough to maintain even a minimalist lifestyle

2) I got laid off of that very job two years later


It caused me to realize how little control I had over the direction of my life. I felt powerless. I was determined to figure out a way to regain control over my time, money, and freedom.


In addition to this, I met so many people who had worked so hard all of their lives only to find themselves in a situation where they didn't have enough money saved for retirement and had to continue working well beyond their traditional working years.


Does any of this sound familiar?

  • "Sometimes I feel like I am one disaster away from poverty, bankruptcy, or crippling debt."


  • "It seems like all of this hard work I am doing is  only enough to pay my monthly bills ."


  • "I'm tired of worrying about money all the time. I want to be in control of my income and my time."


  • "Everything they told me about work, money, and retirement seems to be totally incorrect."


  • "How can I get back in control of my life?"


These were the frustrations I heard from countless individuals over the years. 

That's why I am so passionate about helping working professionals who want to regain control of their lives and position themselves to live financially independent and retire early if they so desired. 


That's Why I Created the Be Your Own CEO Academy

It didn't take me long to realize that my 9-to-5 would never be enough to position me to create financial independence, and generational wealth, and retire young. I had to shift my mindset, beliefs, and perspective on almost everything I had been taught work, time, and money growing up." It was then I started seeking a new paradigm from which to live my life. It was then that the concept of being your own CEO was born.
