Instructor Biography

Ruwan Meepagala, Coach, Lifestyle Designer

I have people live up to their greatest potential.

My resume seems more of a scatter plot than a smooth and steady graph. In the past five years alone I've set national recorders for direct retailers, founded a highly profitable social media business, been commissioned as a Lieutenant in the Marine Corps, been a dating consultant, and trained as a libido counselor.

Today I work with men and women to have them achieve the finest aspects of life, love, and adventure.
