Quest: A search or pursuit made in order to find or obtain something.
I have been around the influence of business concepts and practices since the tender age of 11 and it all started back in 1989 with a company called World Selections. Buying wholesale from places like Hong Kong and the Philippines, World Selections was an import company that sold items ranging anywhere from remote control cars, keychain laser beams, to butterfly knives, Samurai Swords, and Ninja throwing stars, to decorative trinkets for your house that were made primarily out of sea shells. World Selections was the very first business that my Aunt Jackie and my Uncle Ely created and although it is no longer in service today, Aunt Jackie and Uncle Ely went on to open up, operate, and grow, several other businesses...and I was there to help 🤓
Skipping over one business, let's fast forward to the summer of 1996 where my Aunt Jackie, my Uncle Ely and I decided it was a good time to create a landscaping company called Service of America. This business will probably always be my most treasured because it was the very first business where I was the primary factor in creating, operating and growing "a business." I mention this to you because the creation of Service of America is where my "QUEST" for personal, professional and entrepreneurial development consciously began, but it's definitely not where it ended.
Fast forward again to 2006 and this is where Rich Dad Poor Dad comes into play. While in New York working on a special project, I was at a Kinkos in Time Square waiting waiting in line to get some pictures put on a CD when I noticed a book called Rich Dad Poor Dad, by Robert Kiyosaki. The line was very long so I figured why not, and proceeded to pick up the book and dig into a few pages while I waited. I had actually herd about this book several times over the past 2-3 years and all I can say is that I am extremely grateful that I learned how to read because within the first two pages, I was hooked! I couldn't put the book down! And so began my "aggressive QUEST" for personal, professional, and entrepreneurial development. Even though I was almost flat broke at the time, Oh the irony 🤪, I purchased the book Rich Dad Poor Dad and went on a 3 year hiatus studding and applying the teachings of Robert Kiyosaki. This was a time when I was super hungry for massive change in my life and for those of you who may be wondering, I definitely got excellent returns from all of my time and money invested with the Rich Dad Poor Dad organization. Although I went on to study and apply the teachings from other great leaders and organizations, my wife and I still use Rich Dad's fundamental practices to this day and will continue to do so til the wheels fall off (the end).
So, what type of quest am I on and why?
"I AM ON A QUEST FOR THE TYPE OF PERSONAL, PROFESSIONAL, AND ENTREPRENEURIAL LIFESTYLE THAT I PREFER TO LIVE!"

How many people do you have in your life that are happily paying for your current lifestyle and growing your wealth for you, making sure you don't have to lift a finger? EXACTLY‼️
Since 2006 I have invested well over $200,000 of personal money along with countless hours of undocumented personal time, into training, developing, and growing myself personally, professionally, and entrepreneurially.
In a nutshell, I did this for 3 main reason.
I had a burning desire to create a different type of lifestyle, one of purpose and mission. I hated the thought of having to get up, go to work, go home, pay the bills, go to sleep, and repeat, for the rest of my life.
I Refuse to depend on the Government for anything! Especially when it comes to the quality of my life. I lost trust in our "Government" a long time ago for several reasons.
I want to ensure a better future for my family's lineage along with the ability to help others on a larger scale. I want to leave a legacy behind!
When I read Rich Dad Poor Dad, it was at a time in my life when I was super hungry for change. My soul was hurting from not having some sort of purpose to work towards and I was sick and tired of the perpetual presence of debt. Owing money to other people and organizations can become a bit overwhelming from time to time and it has a direct affect on our daily performance because it robs us of precious mental focus that we could be allocating to more important areas of our life. 😬 It's just not the way to live...in my own humbled opinion.
To this day I continue to invest into myself because it's a part of who I am, it's in my 🧬, and I made an oath to myself that I would do whatever it takes to create the type of personal, professional, and entrepreneurial lifestyle that I prefer to live...so the QUEST continues 😉
So why did I decide to invest so much time and money into myself? Because...
"INVESTING INTO YOURSELF IS THE MOST LUCRATIVE INVESTMENT ANYONE CAN MAKE"
- RICKY T!
I didn't begin investing all of this time and money into myself with the thought of becoming a business / life coach. I truly did it to develop myself and create a lifestyle that I prefer to live...period. I wanted to be financially free and I wanted to do what I love to do, and after soul searching for almost 38 years of my life for some type of purpose that I could apply all of my creative energies to, and after decades of wondering what I could possibly do to help destroy the blatant corruption that permeates this planet, I am beyond grateful that I have finally found it! A very specific area or niche that I can apply all of my creative energies to.
With over 30 years of experience in creating, leading, and managing small businesses, creating training programs and developing fellow teammates, working for and with some of the greatest leaders of their respected fields, I figured it's time to step out and help restore the power to the people.
By combining my passions with my purpose and mission, I am diligently creating a unique and powerful coaching and development program that is guaranteed (when properly applied) to help anyone create the type of personal, professional, and entrepreneurial lifestyle they prefer to live.
There is a ton of invaluable information out there that has the ability to strengthen humanity, yet this invaluable information is left out of the American school system grades K through 12...what is the reason for this⁉️
I have NEVER been a fan of bullies, and I feel like the masses have been bullied for way too long 😡 and because of this, I figured it's time to help...
