A Day in My Life:
What do you love most about Your City?
My older brother lives close by
Favorite breakfast meal & restaurant?
I love Toast & Jam Breakfast Restaurant in Schererville, IN
What are you doing at:
6:00 AM – Exercising on my NordicTrack FreeStride Trainer
10:00 AM – Usually answering Email Consultation questions from clients and/or conducting a Skype Consultation or Telephone Consultation with a client
12:00 PM – Favorite Lunch spot/meal?
I usually eat meals from Panera Bread for lunch; I love either the Turkey Sandwich or the Chicken Salad sandwich. I rarely if ever eat red meat items
7:00 PM – Many times, I am conducting a Skype or Telephone Consultation with a client at this time of the day on Mondays thru Thursdays; On Fridays, Saturdays, and/or Sundays, I am usually socializing with friends or female companions, or I might be traveling to work with clients face-to-face
11:00 PM – Sundays thru Wednesdays, I am usually sleep by this time! If I am up, I am preparing for the next day
What drink do you need to get through the day and at the end (and how many)?
Vitamin Water-ZERO, either “Lemon Squeezed” or “Shine” or “Rise”; I drink no less than 3 bottles of Vitamin Water-ZERO per day, along with bottles of Essentia Water
Most used App/Favorite Instagram Account?
YouTube and Amazon.com
What should everyone try at least once?
Hot, kinky phone sex! A man or woman will find out much more about their true sensuality from an episode of phone sex than they will from one or two episodes of physical sex that does not include any prolonged session of erotic dirty talk
Where do you enjoy getting lost?
Traveling internationally. I love being around people of different cultures and countries and observing how the men and women relate to each other. I recently did a 10-day Cruise Ship journey to Jamaica, Columbia, Panama, Costa Rica, and the Grand Cayman Islands. Loved every minute of it
Which City Do You have the Most Clients?
Without question, Los Angeles. I have worked with more (male) clients in Los Angeles than any other city by far. A lot of men are romantically and sexually frustrated in Los Angeles County.
What specifically do you help male and female clients with?
With men, I primarily help them overcome their fear of approaching a woman of interest and initiating a conversation with that woman. Put another way, I help men overcome their profound fear of being rejected by women. If a man is dreadfully afraid of being rejected by women, and deeply afraid of having a woman give him an adverse reaction in response to him initiating a conversation with her, then he will never, ever become successful with women. Beyond that, I help men improve their overall social skills and conversation skills with women. With women, most of my consultation sessions have to do with them overcoming many of their sexual inhibitions, and giving them advice related to the BDSM Lifestyle (i.e., Erotic Domination & Erotic Submission) and the Polyamory Lifestyle (i.e., engaging in ‘open’ or non-monogamous marriages and long-term romantic relationships)
What is the most challenging or frustrating aspect of your career?
Dealing with men who are “haters” and “harsh critics” of my Mode One Approach. My Mode One Approach encourages men to weed out trivial, inconsequential, pleasantly phony “small talk” in favor of a verbal communication style with women that is more bold, forthright, real, and totally authentic. Many men who are my “haters” and “harsh critics” would prefer to lie to women, mislead women, and emotionally and psychologically manipulate women in an attempt to get them in bed, which is sad
Finally, what are a few of your favorite movies related to dating and relationships?
Good question, since I am known among my friends, relatives, and acquaintances for being a major movie buff. My Top 5:
Chasing Amy (1997)
Love Jones (1997)
Eyes Wide Shut (1999)
[tie] Must Love Dogs (2005) and Hitch (2005)
