The Back Forty IGNITE Program

​Put Your Past to Work for you...Not Against

​What if the first half of life was only R & D, research & development?

​What if you could mine that first half to IGNITE an awakening?

​What if it's really only the second half - and what you do with it - that really matters?


What if you have yet to do what you really came here to do?

Consider that the only start that matters is the one you do now, and that life was actually designed that way. Your midlife opportunity is to awaken and discover all that you've learned from your first half of R & D (research and development) and to capitalize on it to realize your own uniquely playful, passionate and purposeful second half.

The Back Forty idea is radical. It says that whatever has come before does not determine what comes next. It begins with a transformational requalification of the past and continues with a radical renewing of the mind into belief and action that ​has you play BIG!


Come discover your Big Game Back Forty Future. It's what you came for.

- Your Past.

  • Your P​ast
  • Your Present
  • Your Gifts
  • Your Values
  • Your Initiation
  • Your Purpose
  • A Presence

We all carry around our past, whether we think so or not. If we’re unaware or unempowered by that past, life is dictated by it and it puts a cap on what’s possible for us. However, If we’re aware and empowered by that past, we are leveled-up to a higher expression of SELF and begin playing at a whole new level.


The Back Forty IGNITE Program requalifies your past such that each and every aspect of it – even those parts you can’t imagine as anything but yucky – becomes an access point to discovering who you REALLY came to be and what you REALLY came to do in this lifetime.


The sooner you ​ embrace the past as "the best thing that could have ever happened to you​", the sooner your radical Back Forty begins!
