My quest is to guide you through the same techniques that I've used and successfully have taught thousands through the Life Balance Advantage®. my own life, I've found happiness, transformed my adversities into advantages, and wrote my first book about this journey called "Sleepwalking on a Tightrope."


Ask yourself if you have experienced any of the following complaints:

Why can’t I ever seem to “catch a break”?

Why do bad things seem to always happen to me?

Why do I suffer with regrets in my life; anxiety, sleeplessness, cycles of depression or unhappiness?

All these life complaints consistently add harmful stress effects to our lives and can be life threatening.

The American Psychological Association had stated that 75% of adults reported experiencing moderate to high levels of stress in the past month and nearly half reported that their stress has increased in this past year. Stress is a top health concern for U.S. teens between 9th and 12th grade, and if these adolescents don’t learn healthy ways to manage their stress now, it could have serious long-term health implications.

If that wasn't bad enough, there is even a more challenging problem. Most people are massively unaware of their health problems; as if they were sleepwalking through their lives! On top of that fact, their lack of awareness is accompanied by “bind spots” that lead them to recreate a life of self -harm, unhappiness & despair.


So, I am sure by now you must be asking yourself; “what’s the good news”?

The good news is that within the adversity of stress, lies a solution!

The solution rests in valuing self-awareness, self-care and awakening to the advantages of attaining Life Balance.  HOW to be physically energized, mentally clear, emotionally centered, connected in healthy relationships and spiritually aligned.

When would NOW be the best time to begin transforming your life?

These lifesaving answers and specific tools lie within our Gavins Village community.

"Believe that you can heal yourself and the happiness you deserve will be yours and you’ll know that you’re blessed."   Mark Armiento
