I was born in Co. Roscommon, Ireland and I moved to the USA in 2001. I branched into the healthcare information technology realm having worked as a radiographer in Ireland and in England. Both careers afforded me many amazing opportunities for growth and learning and my life has always been filled with a sense of gratitude for all the blessings that I have received in my life.
And yet I had this pervasive feeling that something was missing in my life. As the years progressed, this sense of a lack of fulfillment got more and more intense for me. And a little over eight years ago I took the first tangible steps to bring fulfillment into my life.
You see, my passion is music, specifically a rare style of Irish music called The East Galway Irish Music Tradition. I was taught by a musical legend by the name of Eddie Kelly and I spent many hours with he and my dad learning and playing music. Looking back on those occasions with these two gentlemen, they have always felt to be the most grounded, genuine and authentic times of my life. And I have had always felt this pull to keep that amore alive.
I am now one of only six fiddle-players worldwide that plays this particular style which means that the music tradition is in danger of dying out. My passion is to keep this tradition alive, to teach this music style to anyone who wants to learn it and to preserve the music and compositions of Eddie Kelly.
And it's more than just the music, it's the outlook and perspective of that time. It's the simplicity where two men gained ultimate fulfillment in their lives by giving to others, by giving to me.
For the past few years as I have continued to turn my passion into my business I have learned so much. The most important lesson that I have learned is that all business is 80% psychology and 20% mechanics. I discovered that once I got right in my head, it was only then that I began to make real progress in my business. I gained momentum and started taking my business to the next level.
When you take your dreams and you make them a reality, you abide by a formula for success which is called the science of achievement.
But a sense of fulfillment is an art and for each person it is as different as is the fingerprint. It's something that we have to learn for ourselves and something that requires work. We should take this on because success without fulfillment is the ultimate failure.
And thats why I created this course.
