About This Class

I have studied Eastern Philosophy and religious traditions my entire adult life and have found them to be very useful and applicable in the modern world.

For literally hundreds of thousands of years, human beings have been confronted with the problems of survival, raising children, developing relationships, and overcoming endless obstacles on a daily basis. 

The greatest thinkers of the past have much to teach us about how to deal with these problems psychologically and emotionally. In many cases, they have given us very specific examples and teach us how to apply these strategies to our everyday lives.

Eastern Philosophy can help you:

1. Reduce stress

2. Reduce worry

3. Live a more fulfilled life

4. Be happier

5. Accomplish your goals more easily

6. Overcome life's challenges more easily

7. Improve your relationships

8. The list goes on...

In this course we will cover all of the above and look at how you can apply the teachings of some of the greatest minds in history to your everyday life.

See you in the course!

Knowledge is Power!

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 curriculum and instruction and have been designing curricula for over a decade.

The business, language, and chess courses that I have built 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 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 Administration in 2004. After a few years in the work force as an account manager I moved to Vietnam where I lived for over 5 years.

While in Vietnam I taught English as a second language for almost 2 years to students of all ages and backgrounds. For the 3 final years that I lived there I opened and ran a sports training company called Saigon Sports Academy. We coached sports such as soccer, tennis, and basketball as well as ran large sporting events such as tournaments and leagues. My positions while at the company included Director of Strategic Initiatives as well as Director of the Chess Program.

While living in Vietnam I became fluent in the Vietnamese language and developed a deep love for teaching and traveling internationally. I then came back in the United States to work on a masters degree in education so that I would be an even more effective teacher in the future. It is my wish to be a positive force for education in the world, and to inspire my current and future students to be the best that they can be in whatever they do.

I am now a full time real estate investor and online entrepreneur specializing in flipping properties, showing others how to do the same, and having a great time doing it!
