About Joe

Welcome to LivingFullTilt.com. I call it LFT, pronounced “lift” as in we will “lift your spirits and fan sparks into flames.” My vision for LFT is to inspire you and everyone to discover and experience what’s in it for you/them to unconditionally love and forgive themselves.

Let’s reframe how we see love. Think of love like oxygen. Do you ever want to be without oxygen? No! In the same way, we want to remain centered in the flow of love.

We can only share what we have. To remain centered in the flow of love, we must unconditionally love and forgive ourselves. Accept that life happens: Unfavorable and undesired things and events occur and reoccur but through accepting, forgiving and loving ourselves regardless, we can remain centered in the flow of love.

It’s reasonable to ask why is this seemingly altruistic effort so important to me? I don’t think of it as altruistic. I see it as self-serving. Fulfilling my vow that the only way I could save myself was to guide others to understand everyone is loved and more important than we know. An insightful vow I made when I was 9.

Without realizing it, I had tapped into the unlimited universal consciousness expressed in Viktor Frankl’s insight, “I grasped the meaning of the greatest secret that human poetry and human thought and belief have to impart: The salvation of man is through love and in love.”

During my quest fulfilling my vow, I have been a food stamp case worker until I wrote a book helping people get assistance. I believed everyone had a right to know the rules. Texas Department of Human Services disagreed and I was no longer needed.

Later, I created Family Resource Network, a breakthrough financial platform giving everyone a level playing field. A fair chance to earn and live their dreams. We were growing like a launching rocket, until I was shut down in what the Texas Supreme Court described as a wrongful act by the Texas Department of Insurance.

Learning from each step, I have now written Living Full Tilt, Celebrate Life to inspire, encourage and guide in what Harold Thurman described this way: “Do not ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and then go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

My driving priority is living full tilt, celebrating life with my family while putting love into all I do. I use Viktor Frankl’s inspiring words: “The point is not what we expect from life, but rather what life expects from us” – a journey I call Life’s Greatest Adventure – Celebrating Life by Living Full Tilt!
