"Deep in-depth thoughts very helpful and informative. Thank You!" - Donna Fadeley


In this course you will learn to:

Reduce Stress

Increase Happiness

Live with Purpose

Live with Meaning

Re-prioritize Your Life Around What Matters

Achieve Your Dreams

Through my work as a master teacher, entrepreneur, traveler, and spiritual seeker I have gained many insights into human nature. In this course we will learn proven psychological techniques and modes of thinking that are guaranteed to improve your life.

Drawing on the most effective teachings of philosophers, prophets, teachers, and leaders throughout history as well as my experience putting these ideas into practice, we will explore and learn how to stop worrying, improve our effectiveness in whatever endeavor we choose, and live with new meaning and love.

The things you will learn in this course work, it's as simple as that. In addition to my experience, and the words of the greatest teachers in history, we will also draw on modern research that points in the same direction as current and past teachers regarding how to live our lives, what is truly important, and why NOW is always the best time to take action regardless of our current circumstances.

With a master's degree in teaching, minor degree in History, and a voracious reader who has consumed hundreds of books on history, philosophy, literature, and spirituality, I lay out for you the MOST IMPORTANT things that I have learned throughout my life as a seeker.

Many people who know me tell me that I am one of the happiest people they know. In this course, I will tell you WHY.

Who this course is for:

My courses are designed based on my many years as a teacher and student of education and business. I hold a master's degree in business education and have been designing curricula, teaching, and doing corporate training for almost 15 years.

The business, language, and chess courses that I have built on Udemy are a reflection of this experience and dedication to education. My goal is to reach as many people as possible with my courses, which is why I have chosen the internet and the Udemy platform as my ideal mode of delivery.

The following is a little more about my expertise and background. I was born and raised in Sandpoint, Idaho. I attended the University of Idaho where I earned a bachelor's degree in Business Management and Human Resources in 2004. After a few years in the work force as an account manager I moved to Vietnam where I lived for 9 years.

After arriving in Vietnam I and a small group of motivated individuals launched and ran a sports training company called Saigon Sports Academy. We coached sports such as soccer, chess, tennis, and basketball as well as ran large sporting events such as tournaments and leagues. After 5 years of building the business, I led the successful sale of the company to a local conglomorate (XLE Vietnam, owner of the Saigon Heat pro basketball franchise).

I have been fluent in the Vietnamese language for many years and enjoy teaching the language to other expats and non-native speakers. In addition, I have spent many years training with chess grandmasters in Vietnam and hope that my courses will help aspiring business people, Vietnamese language speakers, and chess players reach their goals.

We coached sports such as soccer, chess, tennis, and basketball as well as ran large sporting events such as tournaments and leagues. After 5 years of building the business, I led the successful sale of the company to a local conglomorate (XLE Vietnam, owner of the Saigon Heat pro basketball franchise). I have been fluent in the Vietnamese language for many years and enjoy teaching the language to other expats and non-native speakers. In addition, I have spent many years training with chess grandmasters in Vietnam and hope that my courses will help aspiring business people, Vietnamese language speakers, and chess players reach their goals.

I hold a master's degree in business education and have been designing curricula, teaching, and doing corporate training for almost 15 years. The business, language, and chess courses that I have built on Udemy are a reflection of this experience and dedication to education. My goal is to reach as many people as possible with my courses, which is why I have chosen the internet and the Udemy platform as my ideal mode of delivery. The following is a little more about my expertise and background. I was born and raised in Sandpoint, Idaho. I attended the University of Idaho where I earned a bachelor's degree in Business Management and Human Resources in 2004. After a few years in the work force as an account manager I moved to Vietnam where I lived for 9 years. After arriving in Vietnam I and a small group of motivated individuals launched and ran a sports training company called Saigon Sports Academy. We coached sports such as soccer, chess, tennis, and basketball as well as ran large sporting events such as tournaments and leagues. After 5 years of building the business, I led the successful sale of the company to a local conglomorate (XLE Vietnam, owner of the Saigon Heat pro basketball franchise). I have been fluent in the Vietnamese language for many years and enjoy teaching the language to other expats and non-native speakers. In addition, I have spent many years training with chess grandmasters in Vietnam and hope that my courses will help aspiring business people, Vietnamese language speakers, and chess players reach their goals.
