Welcome. For you to know why this journey all started first have to know where I have been and since I want this blog to be about health, wealth and family. I will tell you a little about where I have been so you can understand why I want to help people so much.

For this, it all started at what ended up being my families life-changing events. First I got in a car accident where I blacked out. My car went off the freeway down into a ditch roughly 80-100 feet down. Then after that, I almost lost my wife when she had a stroke.

It was these two events that brought us closer together than we have ever been before. I am forever thankful for (as weird as that may sound). Unfortunately, because of all the medical issues we now faced our financial situation took a serious hit.

It was a struggle trying to make it where we lived and bills just kept piling up. At the time I was working for UPS but what I was making there just wasn’t enough. So my wife and I sat down and talked for a while. We put together a plan of how to get out of California because we needed change. I’m not talking a little change like the type of salad dressing on a salad. We decided we needed to move out of California and to a new state! I asked my work if I could transfer and they told me I couldn’t. So I was forced to find another job that would allow me to transfer out of state. Once that happened, I put in my two-week notice.

We decided that we wanted to move to Colorado. So we took a trip out there to see if we liked the area that we were thinking of moving to. I am glad we did because we ended up liking it a lot! A few months later we made the move and it was tough leaving the state where we have lived most of our life but we knew it was for the best.

Unfortunately, when we got out here my transfer didn’t go as smoothly as we had hoped it would. I ended up having to go a time without any job at all, which burned through some of our savings. This caused a domino effect which made our first year a rough one. We ended up having to move from where we lived.

The following year was better since then I have only had one job and we have been able to live at the same place for over a year now. We have gone through a few struggles but nothing like the first year. I hope to build on it, and with this blog make each year after even greater than the year prior to that.
