Coming from a long family line of successful investment bankers and lawyers, I knew I just had to work hard to make a fortune. I was operating under the principle: “He who has the gold makes the rules.”
My ambitions, charm and shrewd schemes paid off—I made a lot of money early and gained some recognition. When I was 28, I often used my jet helicopter to fly to work. Over the years, I visited over 90 countries and did business in many of them. I achieved many of my goals; however, I didn’t operate under God’s rule that honor was His basis for riches. I was never content with what I had.
Driven by lust for more and a fear of failure or lack, I worked 60, 70 and even 80 hours a week. Of course, by doing this, I was making the same mistakes that all the ambitious do. Deep in my heart I knew I was running on a never-ending hamster wheel, but I didn’t even want to stop.

I’m thankful that God didn’t give up on me. He called and met me—before I totally crashed—and helped me change my concepts. After that, I was able to change my direction in life and business. When I finally surrendered my financial affairs to the Lord, I discovered an ultimate Wealth Code: “It is the BLESSING OF THE LORD that makes one rich, and He adds no sorrow, pain or harsh toil with it ” (Proverbs 10:22).
Later I experienced that with God’s Promises, Blessing and Guidance, my net worth multiplied— peacefully and with assurance—without “unnecessary” sacrifices of health, family and good reputation.
Many people wonder and ask me as a Wealth Codes Coach if God really cares about their financial success. Believe it or not, Jesus talked about money more than He talked about salvation, faith and grace. Why? The Lord knew: “What you think about money and how you use it will greatly shape your earthly and heavenly destiny.”
As I began to study what the Bible says about money, I discovered many other Wealth Codes that have revolutionized my life. My concepts have changed—and so has my business. I’ve learned how:
- to discover God’s Wealth Codes;
- to listen, and then follow God’s directions in my financial decisions;
- to experience true success, where riches and honor “hold hands;”
- not to put limits on God’s overwhelming goodness, generosity and provision;
- to endeavor to be a true blessing to others.
Today I see myself not just as a businessman, but a steward, who multiplies what God generously entrusts to me—for my good and His Glory and Kingdom.
Whether you feel successful or not, God has a wonderful plan for you—including your finances, provision and increase. Are you ready to discover His Wealth Codes and live by them.
