Hi, I'm Mike.

My journey to creating The Fenix Path started when I was homeless at 20 years old. Although I was living in poverty, there hadn’t been enough lapsed time to think or behave like homeless people do. I had a job, saved a little money, and lived paycheck-to-paycheck. Even though my actions were middle-class, my reality was poverty. I soon realized that my middle-class actions eventually lead to a middle-class reality that rescued me from poverty.

If behavior can change reality, I wondered what would happen if I exhibited the behavior of wealthy people.

I have repeatedly learned the value of determination and perseverance after enduring homelessness, the unexpected death of my sister & mother, and years of failure. My perseverance has empowered me to rise from a life of misfortune, despair, and mediocrity and construct a unique life of accomplishment.

I have over 15 years of experience successfully guiding people on this path.

I immersed myself in learning the behavior of wealthy people for years. I was known to frequent my local bookstores, reading books off the shelves because I couldn’t afford to buy them. I developed unique perspectives on finance and spent many years fine-tuning the steps that would ultimately become The Fenix Path wealth plan. I didn’t have a mentor, so I had to learn things the hard way. After countless setbacks, I discovered that I could achieve wealth by taking steps in a particular order.  

The thing that surprised me the most is that wealth is a consequence of behavior and perspective, not the other way around. Since 2006, I have been actively teaching all the things I have learned.

My experiences have allowed me to develop unique perspectives and I am committed to inspiring others to find value in their misfortune. I show others that every experience uniquely qualifies a person, regardless of their burdens or triumphs, and I challenge them to use those qualifications to make a positive contribution to their community.

Because I started at the bottom, I can meet you wherever you are on your journey.  

I know that you are not your situation. The Fenix Path guides you to enhancing the best parts of yourself and gives you the courage to cut out the toxic crap. I have years of experience as an educator in finance, as well as medicine. Because of this, I have an exceptional reputation of taking complicated concepts and making them simple to understand.
