Wow Where do I start?.. Well for my likes, Motorcycles, Bowling (Yeah, I roll 300's) and Pool are my sports. I am a father of 2 girls, who are completely the reason why I breathe.. My girls have inspired me to be the best in life at all things, not from the moment they were born, but from the moment they were conceived. Being a dad is the quintessential favorite part of my life. I also have a fascination with rescue and law enforcement. I was hired as a full-time fire rescuer the same week I was hired as an on call (not even part-time) radio personality. It’s obvious that I chose radio, and it indeed has been good to me, more so than I am to it. Radio broadcasting has always been my passion and was ultimately birthed into me by my late father who worked in radio for almost 50 years. So I guess you can say I got it honestly. I can truly say that I am blessed beyond measure to have such a great career, which allows me to experience so much the average person will probably never do or see. I am truly grateful to God for this dream now reality lifestyle that I am blessed to have...To Him be The Glory...The Father, Teacher & Mentor

Stop Falling In Love With Potential
Having a healthy relationship with your partner means loving them for who stands before you today, not the hope of who they will become tomorrow. Falling in love with potential is a mistake.
Love Yourself More
I'm not talking about looking in the mirror and saying, "I look good." Loving yourself is about respecting what you put in your mind, your body and your spirit. The more you love yourself, the more emotionally healthy people you will attract.
Get Some Identity Capital
I learned this from an amazing TED Talk by clinical psychologist Meg Jay. She articulates "identity capital" as something that adds value to who you are. It could be an internship, getting your start-up launched, going for that trek around the world - any initiative that builds character will later be desired.
Work On Your Vulnerability
The bottom line is, you can't love without first being vulnerable. Putting yourself in positions of vulnerability in other areas of your life will help exercise this "muscle."
Approach your love life as intentionally as you do your work. Choose who and what you want in a relationship rather than just making it work with whoever chooses you.
Understand Your Personality
The top reason blamed for divorce is money, but that's incorrect, it's actually the inability to problem-solve. Working through issues is solely based on communication skills. Effective communication stems from our personality.
Know Your Values
Creating your "values list' is the most important exercise you can do when thinking about compatibility in a partner. Your values are your guiding principles, akin to your personal rulebook. If you try to live with someone who has a different set of rules, it's not going to work. Spend time fully understanding what you value most (and why.)
Expand Your Social Circle
Adding what is called "weak ties" (friends of friends of friends) to your social circle is documented as the most effective way to realize new life opportunities, including jobs and a significant other. Focus on expanding your circle now. Here are proven ways to meet someone new.
Strengthen Your Belief System
I preach to my clients constantly that our belief is our reality. If you know your belief system (about marriage) needs support, I suggest beginning with monitoring what content you intake (via TV, blogs, etc.) and whom you surround yourself with.
Get a Mentor
I can't say enough about the growth that comes from mentorship, whether it's for romance, business or just life in general. If you've looked for a mentor with no success, you're more than welcome to join my mentoring group, please join me here.
