I was born and raised in Iceland, where I earned a double Master’s Degree in Finance, Economics and Accounting. With degree in hand, I launched my career in the banking industry, working my way up the corporate ladder until I was recruited and became CFO for the Central Bank of Iceland (all before my 30th birthday). As CFO, I served on multiple international committees, was one of the youngest women to chair the Swift user group in Iceland, and traveled frequently to locations around the globe.
Then at 35 I was in a horrible car accident that forced me to reevaluate my priorities. During the healing process, I came to the realization that my life revolved around my career so much that my family had become accustomed to functioning without me; I felt like a stranger in my own home. For the sake of my health, my husband and I decided we wanted to make a major move to a location with a more desirable climate (Iceland is quite cold, as you can imagine). Once we settled in sunny Southern California, I began looking for my next career, only this time I was determined to be present in my family’s life.
For months I searched, struggling greatly to find something that was in line with both my educational and professional backgrounds, but that could also provide the flexibility I desired. I was actively working to expand my network when I met one of the managing partners of Six Figure Profession, Jennifer Becker, whose business acumen and professionalism impressed me. After checking out the SFP website and reading the bios of some of the people working with the company, I was intrigued. My husband and I met with Founder, Heidi Bartolotta, to learn more. Following the meeting, we agreed that partnering with SFP seemed like the perfect fit for me to leverage my expertise in business and earn a significant income, while still allowing me to have the flexibility to enjoy all that Southern California has to offer, with my family!
I have over 25 years of combined public safety and private security experience. When in the US Army (101st Airborne Division), I served as a military police officer and infantryman, retiring as a Lieutenant after multiple deployments all over the globe. Following the Army, I began a career in public safety that has included service as a Firefighter and EMT in Oklahoma City, a Detective, Firearms Instructor, SWAT operator and defensive tactics instructor, as well as a court-certified Police Use of Force Expert for Police Departments in both Oklahoma and Texas. During that time, I also served as a tactical team leader and a Special Deputy U.S. Marshal assigned to the U.S. Secret Service as a Task Force Officer.
In the private security industry, I have served as the Chief Intelligence Officer for a national electronic surveillance company and as the President of a uniformed security force, for which I developed the first fully certified private SWAT team. Currently, I am the Chief Investigator for Tier 1 Investigations, a Fugitive Recovery firm, and I'm also the Executive Director of the Invictus Institute, which is a combatives and fitness training company. I am also a 6th Degree Black Belt and am a master martial arts instructor. With as busy as I am, you might ask, why am I going to build another business? It's because I have always valued service and teaching, and I greatly desire financial freedom. With Six Figure Profession, I receive unprecedented support and coaching along with all of the tools I need to succeed in building a business that will allow me to attain financial freedom. Their systems are first-rate and all I have to do to succeed is take action and help others along the way. Six Figure Profession has allowed me to combine my passion to serve and teach with my drive for professional achievement.
I was born and raised in Los Angeles and excelled at most sports, especially baseball. My parents instilled in me a strong work ethic, which in addition to athletics, I applied to my schooling. When I graduated from high school, I was fortunate to have earned an academic scholarship to attend the University of Southern California. I was equally blessed to be able to play baseball at USC, as well. After graduating from USC, I decided to pursue my passion for teaching and helping others by getting my teaching credential. My heart to give back to the surrounding communities lead me to teach in the Los Angeles public school system for 3.5 years. I loved what I did, but when 9/11 happened, I felt another undeniable tug on my heart that compelled me to enlist in the US Army. During my 8 years in the service, I was a combat engineer and military police officer, completing 2 combat tours in Iraq before being honorably discharged.
Following my military career, I was drawn toward the corporate world but in a role that would allow me to leverage my abilities and passion for teaching and helping others. Over the next 9 years, I was a sales trainer, business development specialist and corporate coach to sales professionals in billion dollar corporations. During that time, I was constantly exposed to, implemented and refined sales and business development processes that garnered real world results. I decided to partner with Six Figure Profession for many reasons. First, the integrity of the SFP team's leadership is unquestionable. Second, the systems of support that SFP has established to help its members achieve success by allowing them to focus on activities that make them money are first-rate. And last was timing; with everything that SFP has going on and the growth opportunity and activity in both Idaho, California and beyond, I just couldn't wait and watch on the sidelines any longer. Partnering with SFP was simply the perfect means for me to leverage my passion and expertise in a business with unlimited income potential.
My background is in small business ownership. I’ve never been afraid to accept challenges and and owning my own business was one of them. What I found was that there was a stress factor I’ve never experienced before that comes along with business ownership. Those of you reading this and own your own business, know exactly what I’m referring to. I sold my company in 2008.
I was introduced to Moms Making Six Figures in 2013 and it was exactly what I was looking for. There is no payroll expense, no worker’s comp expense, no overhead and so on and absolutely no risk. Yes, I work hard but it’s so unbelievably rewarding. I’m not a slave to my business. I set my own hours and live life on my own terms.

Deep down, I always knew that I wasn’t meant to take the conventional path through life. Although I followed the traditional trajectory from high school to college and completed a BA in History, I found myself hesitating when deciding on a career after graduation. Knowing a job in firefighting or education would make those around me proud, I came close to settling for a career path that wasn’t for me.
I had graduated $30,000+ in debt and couldn’t even afford my own apartment, sleeping on a friend’s couch instead. The quintessential “American Dream” seemed completely out of reach to me. Then one of my favorite professors I called “Doc” sat me down and asked, “Do you see yourself following a more conventional or exceptional path in life?”
Doc’s one simple question had a profound effect on my perspective on life. That day, I chose to follow the unconventional path of entrepreneurship in lieu of a more traditional—and predictable—career. I also gained clarity on my true talent, working with people. Although I may have disappointed some important individuals when I initially made that decision, I’m proud to say that I’ve found success on my own terms while enjoying a lifestyle that I used to only dream of.
By partnering with Six Figure Profession and their high-quality mentors, I’ve pursued alternative income paths and invested wisely in opportunities that generate passive revenue and afford me the freedom that I always wanted. Plus, I get to work with some amazing people and help them achieve financial freedom for themselves. Ultimately, my life has changed for the better thanks to one simple choice.
While working my way through the University of Washington pursuing my degree in business administration, I worked for a credit repository in a client relationship and sales capacity, which lead me to a position in pharmaceutical sales with ViroPharma and then Aventis. I managed a 3-state territory, which required that I travel every other week. Though I experienced a high degree of professional success, my quality of life was lacking. I have found a business that gives you an amazing quality of life!
I have always had an entrepreneurial spirit and continually investigated various businesses that were presented to me over the years, and even tried one. Unfortunately, what I found was that the leadership of that company lacked integrity and vision. Thus, when a trusted friend of mine approached me with this business, I was very skeptical. However, after completing an exhaustive analysis of the business model, products and integrity of the management team, I was convinced that I had found a viable means of creating and growing a business that would result in stable, passive, residual income. I am so glad that my mind was not closed to listening.

Being a father of 4 boys and a serial entrepreneur hasn't always been an easy task. I've been very successful in my career and have always been able to provide financially for my family, but finding balance in my life has been the tough part. Before this my schedule was very demanding, often requiring a heavy travel schedule as well as long work hours. There was no way for me to spend quality time with my family.
I now have the flexibility to create a work schedule that &quot;works&quot; for me and my family. I'm able to coach soccer for my boys, attend all of their cross country and track events, be home for dinner, and most importantly spend quality time with my family. I now have balance in my life. I'm able to spend my time where it really matters and at the same time create a six figure income.
Life is Good!
Terry Christensen was born and raised in Eastern Oregon. Small town values were incorporated into his DNA. He worked on his grandpa's farm and for many other farmers and ranchers in the surrounding area during high school to earn some extra money. After high school he served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Rome, Italy. There he served and learned to speak Italian.
While studying Business Administration in college with an emphasis in Marketing, Terry earned a Business Administration Degree from California State University at Fullerton. After that he owned a construction business in California while completing his business degree. Terry belonged to a real estate investment group there and obtained a California Real Estate license in 1989. He continued his education with some hands on experience by owning numerous investment properties in California. After reading over 200 books on investment real estate and attending numerous real estate seminars including property management classes through the years, Terry's love for building and investing strengthened his expertise in real estate management. Terry sold his construction business in California then moved his family back to Idaho and the Treasure Valley in September of 2004.

I graduated from the University of San Diego with a Bachelor of Arts in Accountancy and began my career as an auditor with KPMG LLP. I spent six years at KPMG, during which time I became a CPA and advanced to a management role serving retail and finance clients. I then spent the next 6 years at HSBC Auto Finance where I continued to climb the corporate ladder in a variety of roles and departments including fraud risk management, project and demand management, and product development. I spent my last two years at HSBC as the VP and Director of Product Development, in which role I was responsible for $6 billion per year in new loan originations. Throughout my 12 years at KPMG and HSBC, I was a top performer and progressed through higher levels of management. However, after 6 years at HSBC, that company suddenly closed down its Auto Finance operations in the United States due to the struggling financial markets and the U.S. economy.
In many ways, I am thankful for the turn of events at HSBC because it gave me the opportunity to re-evaluate the priorities in my life. I decided that the most important aspects of my next career were that 1) it needed to be flexible enough to allow me to spend more time with my daughter and to be present for every important milestone in her life, and 2) it needed to not only replace the substantial six figure income I had been making in the corporate world, but also provide me with the opportunity to earn substantial residual income that would allow me build true wealth for my future. After careful consideration and evaluation, building my own business was the best opportunity to accomplish these objectives. I simply cannot stop smiling as this business is fulfilling all of my dreams.
<p class="p1"><span class="s1">Kellee’s goal for her career was always to make definitive progress; continuing to grow in expertise from one role to another, and attain executive-level positions and the pay and recognition that came with them. In short, Kellee succeeded. Over the course of her career, Kellee had acquired quite a diverse corporate background, having held management roles in Operations, Sales, Marketing, Accounting, Information Technology, Customer Service and Human Resources. And seeking to develop professionally even more, Kellee attended the University of San Diego to earn an MBA. But soon after completing her degree, Kellee had her first child. And a couple of years later, she had another. With two children and a busy career, her “work/life balance” became non-existent. Kellee realized that, if she was honest with herself, she wasn’t excelling at any area in her life.</span></p>
<p class="p1"><span class="s1">When Kellee first came to <a href="https://www.sixfigureprofession.com/"><span class="s2">SixFigureProfession.com</span></a>, she said: “I spent a lot of time trying to figure out how I could have more control over my schedule. I enjoyed working, but I needed to have more flexibility in my hours. So, I researched a variety of different business models. I must have investigated at least a dozen different franchise operations. I even built out 2-3 different business plans and I also considered just doing consulting work. Unfortunately, it was clear that none of the models was viable from the standpoint of income potential, and none created the flexibility I wanted, so what would be the point!”</span></p>
<p class="p1"><span class="s1">Having spent a career building up her personal brand and reputation, Kellee was simply unwilling to walk away from the professional side of her life. Finally, after all of her due diligence, Kellee found that the industry, management team and business model of <a href="https://www.sixfigureprofession.com/"><span class="s2">SixFigureProfession.com</span></a> was the right choice.</span></p>
Out of necessity, I have been a &quot;worker&quot; my whole life. Strongly desiring to attend college but lacking the finances to do so, I got a job fresh out of high school in the field of supply chain management, starting (of course) at the bottom. I pushed myself hard in both school and my job and by age 25, I was a college graduate with a successful career as a Supply Chain Manager. And before I turned 30, I was the Supply Chain Director for an supply chain organization with an international footprint.
From the outside looking in, my life appeared to be on a great trajectory; professionally, I was receiving regular promotions and learning well over 6 figures a year at a fairly young age. In reality, I had fallen into the same trap as most successful professionals; I had money, but no time to enjoy it. Further, I had no control over my schedule, my company did. On paper, I had been to many amazing travel destinations, but when you're travels are work-related, I can tell you that the boardrooms, factories and hotel rooms in Ireland are not much more interesting than those here in the States. There simply was no &quot;extra&quot; time to enjoy the many places I went.
By the time I got married and had my children, I just knew there had to be a better way to earn a living and I was determined to find it. So, I did some consulting during the times I was between corporate jobs to see if that was the answer, but my experience of not knowing from where would come my next client caused me always to jump back into the corporate world for the perceived &quot;stability.&quot; The thought of owning my own business wouldn't leave me though, so my husband and I looked into franchise opportunities. None of them seemed a good fit because with things like employees, payroll, rent, insurance, marketing, etc., neither of us saw the ability to gain any time-freedom.
When I heard about Six Figure Profession but hadn't yet met the team behind the name, I was skeptical and part of me wanted to run the other direction. But realistically, my options for making a six-figure income with a flexible schedule were limited, so I kept an open mind, listened and then decided to partner with Six Figure Profession. I still work hard, but on my terms while earning a significant, corporate-level income. And the people with whom I work are dynamic and come from a wide range of professional backgrounds. Succinctly, partnering with Six Figure Profession was the best and last career move I will make.
Over the past twenty-five years I have accumulated a wealth of experience in promoting and branding lifestyle companies. As founder of the Azure Pacific Group, I have had the honor and privilege of both creating AND executing multi-million dollar events, meetings and campaigns around the globe that have launched or promoted some of the most recognizable consumer companies in the world. This experience provided a keen sense of intuition as to what an individual and/or audience seeks, values, perceives and absorbs, and it is this finely turned awareness, which led to the conceptualization of Azure Pacific Group’s new life+style consulting brand.
When looking for additional opportunities to broaden APG’s consulting services and to begin the recovery process after the economic tsunami that ravaged our industry, I had the ultimate goal of being 100% debt free by the end of 2012 in the forefront of my mind when making my next move. In finding a company whose mission statement read “Enhancing the lives of those we touch by helping people reach their goals” I realized it was in complete alignment with the commitment I have not only in my own life, but also for the lives of all my clients. I knew I had found the path to reaching my ultimate goals. It was a perfect fit. I have experienced first hand the unique and rare opportunity that we have to offer both our customers as well as those who want to partner with us and build their own businesses in order to achieve their own goals and life objectives.

I have been in medicine for 18 years and a surgeon for 14 years. Initially, I performed general and trauma surgery and cared for people as a general surgeon in civilian communities as a civilian surgeon, and then subsequently in military communities as an active duty US Navy trauma and general surgeon after 9/11. In 2006, I returned for additional surgical training in plastic surgery. I now practice as a plastic surgeon and absolutely love my patients and the work, but have found the ongoing and ever-increasing hours demanded of my time associated with paperwork and administrative duties significantly impact my time with my patients and my home life.
Because I hold such a passion for caring for patients, but do not house such fervor for the red tape and great expense associated with medical care, I have long desired an opportunity to offer missionary services with the possibility of pro bono reconstructive surgery with perioperative care. In our company, I have found such an opportunity. I plan to use my residual income to actualize my goal of caring for patients without the worry of financial constraints and to allow me the time and freedom to do so. And any additional time I can create to spend with my family, I joyously welcome.

As a person in the Construction Industry for 22 years, I learned the ups and downs of business. For 18 years I worked for a large corporation that went thru 3 acquisitions and many layoffs. I thought I was the lucky one as they always asked me to stay. As more mergers happened, more was required and the stress increased.
Four years ago one of the production facilities was taken over by a private owner. The new owner called and made me an offer I could not pass. I spent 2 years getting things in order only to have another investor take over. The new investor promoted me to Assistant General Manager and it started all over again. A year later they decided they were not doing as well and planned, so they turned it over to another large corporation. It took several stressful months for the takeover but on December 20, 2010 just prior to Christmas I was laid off. After 22 years in the industry, I walked away with one box of personal possessions and a final check that made me really think about my future.
I am telling you this story as it is one all too familiar for most of us. Layoffs, acquisitions and mergers, and company closures are so common today it is normal conversation. We have allowed others to control our future and our income. For me this had to change so I started looking for other options. What is interesting is it was something so simple and was right in front of me.
As a child growing up in a household of entrepreneurs, I was inducted in the world of business at an early age. I studied business administration at The University of Southern California, where I was surrounded by great thinkers and many successful professionals. Right out of university, I found myself on the fast track and was achieving much of the business success I dreamt about as I was growing up. Then the economy faltered.
No amount of education prepared me for the uncertainties that came with such a global economic meltdown. But, I knew then, as I know now that in times of chaos, opportunity abounds for those who are willing to seek it out and act.
My professional journey has certainly had its ups and downs. But today I enjoy running my own business with the support of an ethical, value driven company that produces a product line that never ceases to amaze me. Knowing that my customers are supported with a level of service that truly sets the gold standard further provides me with a confidence to grow my business that is paying dividends.
I’d like to believe that I keep my eyes and ears open most of the time as business opportunities are presented. In truth, I likely allow my own skepticism to block my acceptance most of the time. When I heard about SixFigureProfession.com and the team behind the company, I listened…and I am glad I did.
Hello Chaos, let me introduce you to Opportunity!!
Tom Young was born in Northern California and moved to Boise Idaho at 12 years of age. While he loves Idaho, Tom lived in Anchorage Alaska for 12 years, and still loves to visit Alaska when the fish are running in July. His first business attempt was to start a commercial and residential window cleaning company which required much capital and equipment. With little experience and large amounts of debt Tom’s first business failed miserably and took many years to repay the debts, teaching him a valuable lesson about the brick and mortar business model.
After moving to Anchorage Alaska, he sold TV and Radio Advertising for the next several years, in 2002, Tom left a lucrative job in radio to once again take a chance on owning his own businesscreating a successful direct mail publication sent to 90,000 homes in Anchorage Alaska.
He sold his interest to a partner several years later to move back home to Boise Idaho and focus on what he felt was the future of advertising, web site marketing. He and his sister have owned a successful Website design and hosted management company for more than 9 years with several employees and a large customer base. However, the limit of the brick and mortar business is still very apparent and Tom has always had a sharp eye for opportunity. The Six Figure Profession team made this opportunity undeniable. With many successful business people joining and experiencing amazing success, he felt the opportunity is the best he has ever been presented.
Tom, has two amazing adult daughters and recently met the love of his life Jen and her wonderful 12-year-old daughter making life complete. At a young age, Tom had a fishing pole put in his hand and has been in love with the sport since. If it’s a weekend, he is likely out in his boat, please leave a message…maybe he will call.
I was born and raised in Escondido, California and directly after high school in 1994, I enlisted in the Navy where I served my first tour in Jacksonville, Florida as a hospital corpsman. In 1998, I transferred back to the west coast and joined the Navy SEAL teams. While serving as a SEAL, I was selected for a commissioning program and graduated from the University of San Diego with a BBA in 2009. I am also married to my best friend and we have 5 beautiful children.
While I have been honored to serve this great nation, my family and I have made many painful sacrifices in order for me to serve our country. I have either been deployed or traveling for training at least 50% of the time throughout the past 22 years. We made those sacrifices with the understanding that we were doing it to provide a strong, stable financial future for our family because I would be able to retire with a stable, ongoing, residual income. I have always had a goal of using my business degree to start my own business when I retire from the service. I dreamed of operating a business that would allow me to replace my hard earned income and help other people, yet afford me the flexibility to be able to spend quality time with my family.
I am so excited to have found an opportunity that not only allows me the time and financial freedom that I had always hoped for, but that is also well aligned with things that I value; operating with honor and integrity, building and working with a strong team of like minded individuals, serving and helping others, and supporting U.S. based businesses.
I am also pleasantly surprised to have found an opportunity that offers substantial residual income that I can build in my spare time while still working full time on active duty. I have another year before I retire from active duty and it’s amazing to realize that the residual income that I am able to build in a few short years from my business will far exceed the residual income that I will receive from the military upon retirement with 20+ years of service. It’s a breath of fresh air to know that I am now in a position that will allow me the time and financial freedom to enjoy my family and my life
> when I retire from the military at the young age of 41. This opportunity truly is a blessing and a dream come true.
