Woke and Wealthy

Tell me a bit about yourself

I attended West Hill Collegiate Institute.  School was difficult, I never fit in. I had a sense that there was more to life. Curiosity led me to seek what it meant to be alive. Understanding who I am, what it means to be a human being and my purpose here. After graduating from high school, instead of university or college, I sought out how to find harmony, and meaning to life. This process has taken a couple years and led me here. A kind of spiritual awakening.

My Business: Woke and Wealthy

It is an online business, a lifestyle brand.  It’s

about pretty much everything I’ve learned about life and my attempt to express that truth. Human existence is universal, we all experience the same struggles but in different forms. In sharing my truth I’m able to help people going through similar struggles. Being able to express and share my heart — enlighten, empower, inspire people. To act as a mirror in the sense that finding a wholeness in myself you can find a wholeness in you.

We offer consulting, life coaching, we create edutainment — educational entertainment, content on social media, digital products and services, online guides and online courses.

It’s pretty much for people who feel like they don’t fit in and feel like there is more to life and are hungry for spiritual truth.

When you’re aligned everything just flows.  It’s like I’m not here right now, the ego is an illusion.

What keeps you up at night?

Whether I’m doing enough, living to my potential. Pondering It (capital I).

What was the best piece of advice you ever received?

I think, the only real advice that real resonates with you is the truth of your own experience. People are going to tell you the best way to go, but it never strikes deep at your core. The best guide is yourself, and figuring things out for yourself.

My business, my main message is follow your own truth. I’m sharing what my quest for truth is, sharing what I have learned. That may or may not resonate with you. And the main message is not to listen to me, but be inspired by my devotion to my own truth and to empower you to search for yours.

What was the worst piece of advice you ever received?

Be happy. What does that mean!?
