Dug is a motivational and inspirational transformational speaker who provides breakthrough experiences to help people reach their fullest potential. After having massive success in the music industry, starting with nothing; no contacts or experience and found his way to go from being an intern to working on multi platinum, Grammy winning albums, he transitioned into his deepest passion~ speaking. Having years of experience on stage touring the country in various rock bands, he transitioned into speaking by keynoting for music conferences. Like many of us, he had to “reinvent” himself and carve out a new career. Dug was fortunate enough to be part of a small elite team hand picked by Tony Robbins, where he held the esteemed position of top rated National Trainer and Senior Peak Performance Strategist.

Dug works with mission driven entrepreneurs and businesses ready to breakthrough their habitual thinking that has kept them stuck. What he’s found is they’ve become addicted to chasing the next nothing. Despite how many times they believe the lie that the next dollar, the next deal, the next conquest will fulfill them, the monster is never satisfied, and the longer the cycle continues the closer they come to losing everything they hold dear and what they thought they were working for in the first place. The truth is that they are already on the brink and refuse to admit it….
But while time is short, there is hope. If you are willing to get honest, you can conquer the monster before it destroys your family, finances, fitness and faith.
While most people self-destruct, you can be part of an elite handful of revolutionaries and learn how to use your drive and desire to step up as powerful role models for your family . . . convert your anger and frustration into love and passion . . . transmute your fear into faith to access your full power to earn more, love more deeply, connect even more to God and leave Your Rockstar Legacy.
