Steve Dailey

CONSULTANT

From a career perspective, spanning 40 years, I’ve had the privilege of working with aspiring Olympic athletes, start-up entrepreneurs, seasoned business leaders and an amazing array of ambitious high climbing individuals. And each has engaged me as their trusted teacher/mentor/advisor/coach and friend.

 

More often than not they proudly report lifetime best achievements including setting personal records, launching latent ambitions, or making millions while (most importantly) attaining – or retaining – new perspective on all areas of life. Along the way I have appreciatively gained deep insight on success and achievement through this work; and as well have been inspired to say “yes” insatiably to ambitious pursuits of my own.

Throughout it all I have learned one very important thing about myself: I have a gift to catalyze for others a new, productive mindset that enables them to experience lifetime best achievements.  And I want to share that with you!

GROOMING CONSULTANT

TBD

I have been working with horses and dogs professionally since 1991.  My knowledge ranges from the competing, handling, and grooming horses, cows, dogs and the occasional rabbit.  In 1999, I attended the Nash Academy in Lexington, Kentucky.  Following the completion of the Nash grooming program, I earned my BA for Small Business Management from Ottawa University.  After moving to New Hampshire in 2006,  I utilized my business degree to open my first grooming shop and boutique, The Doggie Bag & Day Spaw.

 


As a groomer, I have scoured the market for the best products and have adopted unconventional techniques to accommodate every one of my client’s need.  I am constantly looking for ways to grow and learn within and beyond the grooming industry.  My pleasure comes not only from the finished product, but also with making sure the pet enjoys and is comfortable throughout the entire process.  My passion for animals comes from my desire to ensure their utmost happiness.  The skills and knowledge I use from vast requiem of experience has helped me develop new and better ways to make the pets and those in my care comfortable throughout their lifetime.  Now this knowledge and experience will  be passed on to students that come to my shop for training.

    Rob Murgatroyd

    PODCASTER/MASTERMIND COACH

    I have overcome my share of obstacles in order to architect the life of my dreams and uncover the key to lasting, meaningful success. Growing up in Queens (literally on the wrong side of the tracks), my early years were tumultuous, marked by hardship and violence. With home being a less-than-idyllic place, I clung to work and education as my ticket out of the bedroom I shared with three brothers, and the low-income reality of the life my parents couldn’t seem to escape. The minute I was old enough, I threw myself into any job I could get my hands on, from washing cars at filling stations, to washing hair in salons. In hindsight, the high-end neighborhood across the tracks (home to the doctors and lawyers) likely played an unconscious role in my decision to attend school to be a chiropractor. Post high school graduation, I moved to Atlanta to complete my training and never looked back.

    Over the next decade, I built a successful chiropractic practice, welcomed my first child, experienced the heartbreak of a challenging divorce, found healing and redemption when I met and married my wife, and read a book that changed my life and uncovered for me the world of lifestyle-entrepreneurship. That book was The 4-Hour Workweek by Tim Ferris. Having spent my entire life thus far in relentless hustle mode, I was ready for the PLAY HARD side of the hard work coin. My wife and I wanted to escape the grind and travel the world, so we did. In 2006 we launched our travel/lifestyle Blog ‘Jetset Life’ and my all or nothing tendencies showed up for the party.

    Predictably, poppin’ bottles on yachts grew old and I became aware that once again my life was out of balance and I felt disconnected and unfulfilled. THIS was the pivotal moment I decided to apply myself to mastering the counter-balance between the science of achievement and the art of fulfillment. From THIS, the Work Hard Play Hard podcast and mastermind was born.

    Eric Solomon

    OWNER

    My passion is in helping others communicate their passion using video.  I do that by creating contextual videos based on listening to - and not talking at - an audience. 

     

    I’ve been creating breakthrough video content for businesses and nonprofits of every size for more than 25 years.  And in a noisy world, trying to get your message across by simply creating more and more content is, I believe, an expensive and ineffective strategy.  For video content to be effective, it must be authentic, relevant, and valuable - otherwise, it’s noise.

     

    On the personal side, my wife and I will have been married 30 years in October, and we’re blessed with 25-year-old triplet boys.  My wife is amazing, our kids are great, and I’m a lucky man.
