Two lives changed, irreversibly, in an instant, by devastating events…but rather than be destroyed, these two individuals faced the ensuing challenges, embracing them as turning points. Seizing the second chances before them with both hands, they chose the path to “Living a Fantastic Life.” In doing so, they discovered “13 Golden Pearls” to guide them…which they are eager to now share with you - to inspire you for your own journey.

disease). Still, he maintained his status as a leading cosmetic doctor
for 30 years.

of Living A Fantastic Life with Harriet Tinka, a former fashion model
and Woman of Distinction. He is also currently co-authoring two more
books: one with Corie Poirier entitled, “bLU Talks Presents: Business,
Life and the Universe” and one with Jack Canfield entitled, “The Pillars
of Success.”

Currently acknowledged as a leading expert in Living A Fantastic Life
and Turning Points, he is a transformational speaker, thought leader,
coach, and mentor.

and they have four lovely daughters and seven beautiful grandchildren.
