Hi there, I'm Stephen!

I say unpopular things out loud to help people live fulfilling lives.


I love pizza, geeky stuff, adrenaline rushes, my wife and three kids, playing guitar and drums, and leaving people better than I found them (not specifically in that order).

My WHY Statement is to "Glorify God while cherishing my family, working to serve others and having fun along the way!"

I'll never delete this picture. You can't see it, but I was broken when it was taken. I had no money, no direction, no purpose. 

I wanted what everyone wants, a life full of love, fun and plenty of money to do whatever I wanted.

I was the first in my family to graduate college and land a job at a Fortune 500 company. But at the age of 26, I found myself suddenly divorced with zero possessions, $5000 in my pocket and moving back in with my parents.


I never thought I'd have to start over, but after some soul-searching, I realized I hadn't really ever started.

Since I was 18, my life had been on autopilot driven by societal standards. I went to college, took out loans, landed a corporate job, got married and saved a little money. If that was success, why did I hate where it got me?


At that low point, I realized I wasn't following my plan but the one society handed to me. So I ended that and built my own.

I was doing sales and consulting with executives for Fortune 500 companies. One day, I had an expert consulting on strategic planning and a revelation hit me like a lightning bolt...what I needed was a life strategy!

5 years later...

I had married the love of my life, paid down $265,000 in debt to become debt free (minus the mortgage), built a net worth over $100,000, worked 32 hours a week and had a newborn son.

This time, it wasn't by chance. Much of it wouldn't have happened without me taking control of my life and executing a strategy for the life I wanted.

I believe that everyone can build True Wealth.

I have spent the last 6 years helping thousands of ambitious people define success and design the life they want.

What makes the True Wealth Experience‚ĄĘ so effective is¬†our¬†"life first, money second" philosophy.

The best outcomes happen when we are intentional with our money, time, and energy.


After a decade of revising¬†strategies and processes for multi-billion-dollar firms, I've merged these universal principles with behavioral psychology to craft an experience. This approach doesn‚Äôt just boost your bank account numbers‚ÄĒit propels you towards the life you desire.

I want everyone to live life on their own terms.


We only get one trip on this space rock we call home. So many people simply exist, moving from one screen to the next uninspired activity. 

I wake up everyday excited (yes, even on Mondays) and I want that feeling for everyone else too.

That's why I love engaging with our Assembly members. Check it out!
