Why I make my courses:
How To Be A Successful Bartender:
When I moved to New York City 4 years ago. I wanted to bartend because I knew and heard from other people that it was the best job to have while figuring out what you want to do with your life. It makes great money and you get to meet and network with people.
Not knowing much about the profession, I blindly signed up for a $500, 2 week bartending course. Although I did learn some information about alcohol and drink recipes, when I applied to bartending jobs I had no clue on how to actually bartend.
I just knew how vodka was made and how to make a martini. The first job I got I was fired on the first day because I couldn’t open a bottle of wine, and while shaking a margarita the back of the shaker fell onto the floor because I did not know the proper technique on how to shake. I was mad because I wasted so much time and money and could not successfully bartend as the bartending school did not teach me how.
I made my bartending course so that you can take it and know exactly what it takes to bartend. It is black or white, none of the information in this course is useless like 95% of the information I learned in bartending school. All the information in my course is 100% practical.
How To Have A Spartan Warrior Body:
During my whole life fitness has always been at the forefront. It is and always will be something I'm extremely passionate about. I believe fitness is a major key in the success of someone's life. I believe this because of all the benefits it has given me, constant energy, confidence, and strength. As the years went by I learned a lot of things that I WISH I knew when was first starting out. That is why this course was created. To give people the foundation to being insanely fit and also revealing everything it takes to get to that level of fitness. I wanted to show everything that it takes, the entire picture, because there are all these fitness courses out there and they just have the workouts and maybe some technique tips but that is usually all they have. In these other courses they never go over the mentality you should have, your breathing, your diet, they do not go over the entire picture when the entire picture is exactly what you need to see and know to be incredibly fit. This course aims to change that.
What I’m doing now:
I fell in love with bartending when I got the opportunity to work at a high end Greek restaurant in Tribeca. Missing my family I most recently moved back home to Maine. You can find me bartending in Maine's hottest bars during the summer, and in the winter, my focus is spending time on my other passions, online course making, traveling with my wife, getting insanely jacked, and spending time with family.
