Entrepreneur, speaker, & eternal optimist dedicated to helping you feel and be your absolute best.
As a kid, I was so scrawny my mom took me to the doctor to get checked out thinking I must be sick. Turned out I wasn’t sick, just your scrawny average kid. I fell in love with entrepreneurship at an early age after learning about my grandpa’s successful bakery business in Brazil.
I don’t come from an athletic family but instead a Portuguese family who loves to eat and drink. How I am not 300 pounds today remains a mystery to me.
“You’re not good enough, or smart enough.”
I grew up being told I wasn’t good enough or smart enough to ever be a successful entrepreneur. It was during this time I discovered that regardless of how crappy I felt, how low my energy and confidence was, the one thing that always energized me and gave me the confidence to keep pursuing my goals was my commitment to exercise.
Focusing on my health and fitness and making that a priority changed my life.
