God I can’t believe I’m aging and turning 30, 40, 50, 100! Yeah it happens guys and I know you know that is true, but what happens when it hits you like a ton of bricks? I know, because I’ve experienced it and it wasn’t pretty. Nor was it pretty for my buddy Chris!

At 40 he had his awakening. It was his OMG moment when he went deep inside and thought, what’s next? Now, for a guy who is a New York Times Best Selling Author, one of only a handful of people to have traveled to every country in the world, and a man who dominates his world every year with his sold out event – World Domination Summit – you might be scratching your head and wondering…”What does this guy have to worry about aging for? He’s got it all going on!” Well looks can be deceiving and he’s going raw and real about his crisis of aging.
