Hi everybody. My name is Dave Kwiecinski. I live with my beautiful wife, Kathy, and the youngest of our five children, Martha, in Winthrop Harbor, Illinois. Take a look at a map… we’re at the corner of Lake Michigan and the Wisconsin state line. See us waving to you?
I’m a “recovering CPA” who still prepares income tax returns every spring (keeps the mind sharp). When I graduated from high school (many, many moons ago), I was convinced that I would make my living as a writer and author. That’s all I wanted to do with my life.
College has a way of reshaping expectations and aspirations.
I wish I could blame it on the drugs, but I didn’t take ’em. No alcohol either. Not enough anyway. But something made me do “accounting.”
Well, not something… someone.
I’m analytical, have a head for numbers, the rest is history. Early into my career, I knew I had made a mistake and kept trying to “fix it.”
Over the last 32 years (yikes), the one constant theme of my life has been taxes. Tax prep. Consulting.
One more constant. The unquenchable desire to help people.
Getting Kathy through nursing school, five kids, three in diapers, helping her through some major health issues, school activities… weeks blurred into months, months into years… it was easier to remain a CPA through it all.
Fast-forward to the late 1990s. A minor health scare resulted in a trip to the emergency room.
Much ado about nothing, but to make a long story very brief, it was the catalyst to a second career as a personal fitness trainer and a new goal: to live to age 100.
Not just limp along, mind you, and gasp out my last as I crossed the “Age 100” finish line, but to live, to thrive, and to matter… all God-willing… until I’m at least 100 years old.
I have a lot to give, so much to share, and there’s so much I wish to experience, it’ll take that long to fit it all in.
In 2004, I became a personal fitness trainer. My new career journey began as a classic “rep counter” at the McGaw YMCA in Evanston, Illinois. My practice has evolved into a variety of specialties, from working with clients suffering from debilitating disease, such as Parkinson’s and MS, helping the “unwell” move closer to optimal health and away from preventable diseases on the life cycle continuum, to simply helping those of us in our “middle years” cope with the ravages of time’s assault on our physical structure and those looking to transform their bodies for whatever reason.
I don’t own a gym or a studio. I make house calls.
I will write more about how I provide solutions for you in a future blog post. For now, I simply want to introduce myself.
I still aspire to be a writer.
The next leg in my own personal transformational journey commences today.
I will assist many more of you virtually than I can individually, in a one-on-one setting, so I am entering the world of online business to search for people hurting and seeking solutions to their physical challenges. This will fulfill my lifelong expectation that I would live my life as a writer and author, a dream sidetracked by misplaced ambition, then life circumstances, and personal choice.
My choice now is to bring me back to my center. And thus help hundreds, perhaps thousands of you… not just a handful… at a time. I have a lot to give, so much to share, and I still have that same unquenchable desire. To help you get what you want.
Let me know about you. What are your expectations for your life? How can I help you achieve them? Send me an e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
I cannot wait to help you.
