Hi, I’m Anthony.

I created Live Beyond the Illusion to help on this journey that we share. It’s a journey of discovery and self-awareness.

Life can feel overwhelming. And at times we may feel powerless, a prisoner to our circumstances. It’s an awful, limiting feeling.

But it doesn’t have to be that way.

I’ve discovered that happiness is a choice, not a consequence. And we can access this state of joy in any moment. We are the author of the script we call life, not an unwitting participant. Once we learn how to make that shift in awareness, a new world of indescribable bliss and tranquil peace opens up.

Live Beyond the Illusion is dedicated to helping bring about that reality.

Who Am I?

Growing up as a very logical, question-everything, naysayer kind of person, notions such as self-awareness and personal growth held very little meaning for me. In fact, I questioned the integrity of people who dabbled in such cerebral nonsense. But then I had an experience that turned my life upside down. Following which, I discovered the key to true happiness.

What I do

Having realized how much my life was full of judgment and passive-aggressive attack, I began a quest to become more kind, self-aware, and less fearful. A quest to transform my very limited ways of thinking into the realization that our thoughts determine our reality. I write about and share my experiences and lessons-learned with the goal of helping others (and myself) on this journey we all share.

My Background

I spent many years in the business world buying in to the belief that success was defined by position, power, and money. Thankfully I had terrific mentors who helped me see the tragic errors of my ways and reshaped both my character and my career. I’ve had the great fortune of being a CEO, entrepreneur, startup investor, software developer, and computer hardware engineer. I fell in love with building social impact companies that could make a difference in the world. And I particularly enjoy helping develop leaders with a passion to make such a difference.
