Why Work With Me?

You want an awesome life! A life filled with vitality, motivation, passion, purpose & success for yourself & others.

You might be curious about what the science says about optimal functioning of the brain, body, and its relationships. However, the idea of learning all the research may seem overwhelming or hard to apply to everyday life. That’s where I can help.

My passion and expertise makes the science of health, happiness, and success both simple to understand and easy to apply to your daily lives!

How do I do this?

I help others achieve health, happiness, and motivation by blending smart science with practical tools. 

As a testament, my books, ” The Dolphin Parent: A Guide to Raising Healthy, Happy, and Self-Motivated Kids is a #1 Bestseller and The Self-Motivated Kid won the 2015 US News International Book Award. I’m so grateful my newest book, The Tech Solution: Creating Healthy Habits for Kids Growing up in a Digital World is selling fast.

I love spreading the word of balance, motivation, and adaptability through compelling and engaging speaking events. Some of my current favourite topics cover innovation, 21st century leadership, resilience, the human intelligence system, technology, parenting, mental health, and addictions.
