to understand how Americans are conditioned to follow what he coins “The Retirement Myth,” the branding of retirement and influence of the economy by the government, financial institutions, and other large corporations to maximize profit off of us until we are no longer needed (generally around the age of 65). Troy has diagnosed “The Retirement Myth” as the root of the problem Americans face, conditioned to defer time, money, and passion to hopefully live a life that statistically never happens and what is worse, is set up that way! It explains why how many people are unhappy regardless of financial status and why so many people lack savings, favorable incomes, have debt, lack financial stability, and ultimately do not enjoy spending time the way they want.
Recently Troy has recognized as one of “America’s Premier Experts,” was inducted into The National Academy of Best-Selling Authors, was a Thought Leader Summit Award winner, an Expy award winner, and was inducted into The National Academy of Experts, Writer’s, and Speakers. He has also recently spoken on Hollywood Live, is soon to speak on Capital Connection Live, and has offers for other nationally recognized tv shows. Troy recently co-authored The Road to Success, is about to release another co-authored book called “The Better Business Book,” and is in negotiations for a full book on The Retirement Myth. Troy either has or is soon to be seen on ABC, NBC, FOX, CBS, BRAVO, A&E, CNN, and CNBC.
Troy West is the CEO of Lifestyle Financial Planning (LFP) and an avid lifestyle entrepreneur. He founded LFP on the premise that Americans are struggling to live the lifestyle they want, ultimately living a life of a “have to” instead of a “get to.” With over 10 years in backgrounds of financial services, personal development, and social science, Troy understood why Americans are generally not happy because time, money, and passion are not aligned. Prior to 2008, West realized the financial industry was teaching principles that ultimately did not lead to a lifestyle most wanted to live. In fact, 9 out of 10 Americans are not living a better lifestyle by the age of 65 after working for 40 years! As such, Troy used his unique blend of skillsets

John Duffy the son of Irish immigrants grew up in the one of the poorest neighborhood in America, the South Bronx. He dropped out of high school at the age of 15 and struggled to survive and make a life without any successful role models. He worked many jobs including: working in a paint factory, a shipping company, driving a cab, a research and oral history interviewer, an aerobic instructor, health club salesman, a substitute teacher and a mail handler before moving into the film industry.

John is a veteran Producer of over thirty feature films working with actors like William Shatner, Dennis Quaid, Ving Rhames, Michael Madsen, Robin Thicke and many others.
And Much, Much more!
A turning point for John was while working as a Mail Handler for the US Postal Service in NYC he attended a Firewalk Seminar with Tony Robbins. That weekend transformed his life and sent him on a new life path. He has walked on hot coals over a dozen times since that life changing night.
John recently directed “ The Flag” two patriotic short films. The Flag screened at the GI Film Festival in Wash. DC in 2015 and is available on Amazon.

Chantel lives in Reno with her husband, three kids and two dogs. She loves traveling, public speaking, meeting new people, and actively seeks opportunities to serve others. Every task she takes on, every challenge God gives her, she tries to do with all of her heart.
Termite Watkins, VIP
Celebrity Boxing Champ
After retiring, Watkins went back to Texas to work as a fumigator. He remained in obscurity there for many years.
In 2003, the American military, needing personnel to work rebuilding Iraq's infrastructure, contracted him as a fumigator to work on Iraqi homes that had been decaying and infected with insects during Saddam Hussein's presidency. The military did not know of Watkins' background as a boxer.
In 2008, writer Suzy Pepper, a former neighbor of Maurice Watkins, released "Termite", a biographical book about Watkins. Also in 2008, a movie based on the book was announced. Watch movie trailer here.
After the IOC announced that Iraq would be allowed to compete in seven sports at the 2004 Olympics in Athens, including boxing, the United States military, overviewing the new Iraqi Olympic committee, set about to find a new boxing coach for the Iraqi national boxing team. With research, they found out about Watkins' background, and invited him to coach a team of young hopefuls in Baghdad. When Watkins arrived there, he saw what he described to a Sports Illustrated columnist as not too much talent, but a lot of heart.
Realizing he needed to train the team in a setting different from Baghdad, he moved his team to a city close to Baghdad, but much quieter than the capital city. He trained nine Iraqi boxers who hoped to reach the Olympics, but, out of those, only Najah Ali was able to qualify for the games.
During the training period of these young prospects, he invented a phrase that has become widely popular in Iraq: Every morning, after arrival to the gym, he would chant Iraq! Iraq! Iraq is back! to help inspire his boxers. The phrase has become so popular in Iraq that the United States military has ordered 1,000 T-shirts to be printed with the phrase, to be handled among Iraqi citizens.
Building a team in the middle of a war brought tremendous obstacles, but Watkins found a way to make the impossible happen. In his presentations, Watkins takes audiences through his experiences and perseverance to reach his goal and qualifing one Olympian Iraqi. His inspirational story, aptly named Termite, authored by Suzy Pepper, will provide the basis for a Movie with Producer John Duffy, known for Beneath The Dark starring Dennis Quaid and many others.
Watkins turned professional as a boxer on May 21, 1974, beating Cesar Cortez by knockout in round one at Houston. Through his career, Watkins fought some of the best fighters in the Lightweight and Jr. Welterweight divisions. He beat Marion Thomas by a knockout in round seven, Rocky Ramon by a decision in twelve, Arturo Leon by decision in ten, Bruce Strauss by knockout in three, Bobby Rodriguez by knockout in one, and others. His fight with former United States Lightweight champion Norman Goins resulted in a three round no contest. He also lost to Olympic gold medalist Howard Davis Jr.. and Alfredo Escalera. On October 2 of 1980, at the Caesars Palace hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada, he got his only world title shot, losing to Saoul Mamby by a fifteen round decision for the WBC's world Jr. Welterweight title. He retired with 61 wins, 5 losses, 2 draws (tie), one no contest and 42 wins by knockout.
