"Know The Process"

I've created this just for you...

if you feel like you’re not where you want to be financially, do you want to up your money game and/or do you want to create financial freedom as an entrepreneur…

This is what I call an Affluent Entrepreneur!

One of the biggest mistakes many entrepreneurs make is to think you only need to work harder & sell more/create more revenue and freedom will come...a Treadmill Entrepreneur.

BUT being an Affluent Entrepreneur means knowing what to do with the money you’re already making... and no, that doesn’t mean waiting until you first hit 6 figures, multiple 6, or 7. It's about using your business to build a money machine to create the freedom you desire AND that starts no matter the age or stage of the business, no matter the size of the business.

Because I don't have to tell you if you don't develop the right habits, strategies, and tactics when you're small it's more difficult if not impossible to develop them when you're running fast when you're big.

Yet this can never happen until you know how to get off that treadmill. And with the right process and principles becoming an Affluent Entrepreneur is at your fingertips.

But affluence is not all about the money though!
It's really about living a life that is meaningful, impactful, fruitful and peaceful.

What attendees are saying about the training...

"Debt-free and building wealth within 10 months!"

Mel showed me that I didn’t have to stay in debt with my student loans and I could use my business to become debt-free and build wealth. Within ten months I was paid off $100K in student loans and building wealth. Before Mel, I thought it was impossible to pay off that much debt and now at the age of 30, I’m completely debt-free and building wealth!

Mel’s training is the no one wants to talk about but 100% should be and is so needed!

"Mel's solid strategy allowed us to buy our dream home a block from the beach!"

With Mel's guidance, my business is running more profitably and is funding my financial future beyond what I imagined. He's changed the way I think about money and how I approach my wealth-building forever!I didn’t realize how much I didn’t know about money until I met Mel. I had invested in some stocks did well, I was earning a great income, yet I didn’t realize how fragile my financial position was until I went through my first training with him. I now know exactly what moves to make to retire comfortably, how to manage my monthly income and how to invest for my future.

Mel is real, approachable and makes talking about money fun, simple and relatable.

The fact that you’re on this page means that you want to get your money handled differently and you know that how you’ve done it in the past isn’t going to give you the peace of mind and freedom you want.

Here’s the deal though, if you’re struggling to get your money and wealth building dialed in it’s not your fault. Most of us (including me) got our money tactics, strategies, and lessons by observation. The challenge comes in who we observed...our parents, our neighbors, the media, and others that never really figured it out themselves.

Our schools fail miserably by not talking about money at all let alone the concept of wealth building. And the financial industry is really good at making you dependent on them as THE only resource...and it doesn’t need to be that way.

When you understand the affluence principles that the wealthy use to build and keep their wealth, you’ll see how easy it really is.  And it doesn’t matter where you are or how old you are, the principles are universal laws that are timeless.

Most of us grew up being taught to get a good education, then get a good job, then go work hard and in time you’ll get ahead. Here’s what I know and I think you do too, this just isn't the case. 

Think about this, how many people do you know that follow this very recipe (good education, good job, work hard) just to continue to struggle and not ever get the wealth, freedom, and liberation they want.

The problem is they only learned a small part of the recipe...they never learned what to do once they make money.

That's like mixing the ingredients of a cake recipe but never putting it in the oven to bake it. The cake, like your wealth, never takes form.

According to Nielsen data and CareerBuilder, somewhere between 50% and 78% live paycheck to paycheck!

And this is before any of the pandemic issues hit!

I don’t have to tell you that this is a problem AND it doesn’t need to be this way…

The fact is that we all grew up hearing things like:

  • You need money to make money.
  • You need to be born rich.
  • Money doesn't grow on trees.
  • Money is the root of all evil.
  • Money is only for the greedy.
  • And many more myths, lies, and falsehoods.

Here’s what I know, many have come from nothing to find freedom, liberation, and wealth. Others have made it then lost it all but built it all again. Still, others have worked their tail off and don’t have anything to show for it.

What’s the difference between the first two and the last one?

Simple...knowledge, skills, tactics, strategies, and systems. Ok, you need to add a bit of discipline to apply them consistently. That’s it! Not some wizbang genius IQ or anything like that.

Here’s the good news then...no matter where you’re at, no matter your age and no matter what you’re starting with, you too can build wealth, find freedom and live an affluent life. All you need is the right system, tactics, and processes. 

Life isn’t about just getting by, it’s about being set for life!

The reality is I grew up in a middle-class, white-collar family. Like many, I was never taught about money by my parents. In fact, they said a lot of the comments above. I’ve made money and I’ve lost money, more money than you could imagine...including one-third of everything I owned in a Ponzi scheme.

But, through it all, these very principles are exactly how I not only recovered but blew past it by 3x within 18 months. So none of what I teach today is theory or hyperbole. It's all from my background as a CPA, valuation professional, and how I live each day.

The truth is this. Money is easy to make. There are tons of ways to make money so if that's the case then it isn't a money issue. 

What is it then?

It’s a behavior issue. The actions you take, the habits you have, and what you do with what you make is what drives your wealth and freedom.

Get your behaviors right and EVERYTHING changes for you, for those around you, and your legacy!

This is generationally life-changing!

But before we start on this journey together, I want to remind you that where you are with your wealth and money today is not your fault because you learned what you could and did the best you could from the sources you had.

If you’re struggling with money it’s for one reason only and that reason is that you’ve never been taught how to make money, keep money and multiply money to build real wealth and affluence. As you’ll discover, building wealth is far easier than you think. 

Let’s face it, if the “work hard, you’ll make money, get ahead” paradigm worked then everyone who worked hard would have money and be wealthy and that is just not the case and you know that.

So if any of this resonates with you, join me for my free training, and let’s get you on the road to the wealth and well-being you’ve always wanted and truly deserve.

How Cancer Showed Me How Important Financial Liberation is...

After finding a cancerous tumor in my bladder larger than a baseball in June 2019 and successfully conquering it within 6 months, I began to openly teach The Affluence Blueprint™ because my cancer journey spotlighted the immediate and urgent need for entrepreneurs to find “financial liberation” and peace of mind. This is the very process and system I used to build my business and more importantly my wealth through business that allowed me to completely shut things down to focus on what’s important.

Most entrepreneurs are building a financial house of cards and don’t even realize it…and traditional financial advice will not work for them. 

Now it’s your turn to take the lead!
