    I am determined to break any barriers that hinder success and anything is possible once you put your mind to it. I learnt never to give up in all my endeavours and even when I fall I shake myself and stand again ready to face whatever life throws at me. Failure is not in my vocabulary.

    I had no other choice. My husband committed suicide when my kids were very young. I had to scrape by and figure things out which included an obscene amount of personal growth. Luckily my husband taught me how to be entrepreneurial and I had learned so much from our experiences owning parasail operations, marinas, flipping houses,.... I'm pretty proud of the person I've become and it all was birthed from my husband's tragic death. Our family unit is tight and I have created a life where I get to love on and lift others up as a job. I'm excited to see what's next!

    For me the key is a balance of career and hobbies/family. If you work hard, it's best to find time to travel, dance, fool around with friends, go to family gatherings, read new books and have plenty of physical exercise. Don't forget about enough sleep too. Meet people you like who give you positive emotions. Go on good meaningful dates or don't go at all. And don't let anyone waste your time.

    Warren Buffet's famous quote regarding Berkshire Hathaway's Market Strategy: "We simply attempt to be fearful when others are greedy and to be greedy only when others are fearful". To get there is to go where fear and greed lives........ "If you want what I have, are you willing to do what I did to get there"? I've lived by that quote and that's all there is to it. My fear will tell me "I can't", but my truth guarantees me "I will". A visionary takes all the "focused determination" and stamina they have to reach further; going beyond their fear they realize that most of their dreams can be brought into the realm of reality!

    I comes from humble beginnings. I wasn't handed success on a silver platter. Rather, I had to work for it. At the age of 15, I left home Over the last few decades, I had become winemaker , CEO ,animal rescuer , philanthropist and the world's leading life and business strategist.. It's important to understand that success isn't an event. Rather, it's a process of becoming the best version of yourself. The process is what frustrates a lot of people. It causes them to dabble and inevitably, give up. Success takes a lot of hard work, dedication, and sacrifice. If you want to achieve your goals, you have to focus on and trust the process. There are no shortcuts when it comes to mastering your life.

    I went to school for a reaaaaalllllly long time. Then, ya know, I worked and stuff. Then, I worked some more and got really good at it. Then, I became an "expert" in my field. Sometimes I write books about it.

    I achieved my success by being a savvy investor in the US stock markets. Tech stocks mostly, e.g. in 2014 I invested $223,000. in a technology ETF and today that ETF is worth over $5 million! I have the uncanny knack of picking winning stocks. My advice to anyone investing in the markets, or anything in life, is to have fortitude and the courage of your convictions. Good luck to all!

    I came from poverty, no dad single mom and three sisters. Having no father figure I assumed a man must know how to do everything, so I set out learning to be a jack of all trades. I washed dishes, and taught myself carpentry, plumbing, welding, diesel mechanics. as a boy the richest guy around was a mechanic so that's what l became, but it was not rewarding financially. so I became a life Insurance salesman but it was not rewarding creatively. I taught myself to program a computer, and I found something both financially and creatively rewarding . I advanced until I was a vice president of the company, I then taught myself how to trade stock and retired at 49. Easiest way in the world to make big money.

    In my youth I played a lot of baseball. I skipped up a league when I was nine and began pitching to twelve year-olds. I pitched no-hitters and shut-outs. I learned how to win in the last inning, a skill I carry in my adult life. It is my conviction that if you use your creativity and outwork your opponent, then don't you deserve to win? In my engineering career I worked for oil refining companies, a career too dangerous for people who lack confidence or are stupid. In my early career I implemented process controls for two refineries. Later I became a Linear Program Analyst, a strategic position in an oil company. I demonstrated an ability to take charge in dangerous situations, a trait that most engineers lack. Did I get that from pitching baseball games?

    I greatly value education, and always doing my best. I always say "anything worth doing, is worth doing well." Whether that means leading a team, making investments, or cooking dinner. Always looking to grow and learn every chance I get!

    It's not the force of the wind...but the set of the sails. Get your house in order and connect with the proper energy. We make our own luck. The difference between $1,000,000 and $10,000,000 is only one zero.
