Ed decided from a very young age that since he would have to work in life, he might as well work for himself and call his own shots. He realized right away that he was not going to spend his life working for someone else and building their dreams. His wife Kristianna, who had been his sweetheart since they were teenagers, shared that same vision of life.
Their initial dream was for Ed to play major league baseball, but an injury sidelined any chance he had for a professional athletic career. After putting countless hours of practice and hard work into baseball for so many years, he wasn't sure what to do next with his life.
After several job changes, he came across an exciting, entrepreneurial opportunity in the financial services industry with World Financial Group. During their early years in the business, he and Kristianna faced a number of challenges.
While Ed has always been more concerned with dreaming big and working hard, Kristianna focuses on establishing financial and family security. He finally convinced her that if she would let him work really hard for three to five years, they would have the next 50-60 years to do whatever they wanted to do. Then finally, his consistent dreaming and effort paid off and his business grew and thrived into a nationwide team of associates, which has turned out some of the most inspirational and successful leaders in the industry. Ed and Kristianna went from being a typical young couple struggling financially, to becoming millionaires while still only in their 30's.
Today, Ed is one of the premier business leaders, peak performance experts, and motivational speakers in the world. He has a passion for mentoring and coaching others on what it takes to become a champion in all areas of life. He is best selling author, host of the top-rated Max Out Your Life Podcast, and speaks all over the world.
