As a best-selling Udemy instructor with more than a dozen online courses, I also run the Core Freedom Academy with over 14,000 students worldwide, and I am ready to share what I know.
I have been a public speaker, workshop leader and online course creator for more than 14 years. I've spoken on stage with Robert Kiyosaki (author of Rich Dad Poor Dad) and also taught at the Learning Annex in San Francisco for over three years.
I teach courses in the field of professional and personal development and new courses are constantly being developed.
Today I draw on my further education as a metaphysician, holistic life coach, certified hypnotist and trained grief and suicide hotline counselor. I’m also a non-denominational ordained minister, a Reiki Master and I teach courses in EFT (emotional freedom technique) and dowsing.
It all started in the world of business. I’ve worked for the Swiss Government and Private Banking Industry, before moving to Silicon Valley putting together teams for technology start-up companies. A tragic loss in 2006 left me homeless for 7 months while I withdrew from society to reinvent myself and my life.
The courses I teach today come from my school of hard-knocks.
I’m a huge fan of living the mobile lifestyle. Less is indeed more and being able to live wherever I want to is possible thanks to being an online instructor. My life lessons are woven into all of my courses.
