It’s by effective action that we’ll reach what so many have dreamed but failed – because they only dreamed, and didn’t act

My Inspiration: DeRose

"I love to work and I love my job. As a writer, I spend all night long writing my books (more than 30 titles, until now) published in several countries in Europe and America. My way of living is powered at 220 volts, thanks to the high performance and stress management techniques of the DeRose Method in which I administer courses practically every weekend of the year, around the world.

A perfect day for me is to wake up alongside with my girlfriend Livia, be romantic with her; walk with my weimaraners Jaya and Frieda; sunbathe for a while; talk to all of our schools in the whole world through Facebook; have lunch with my ex-wife - whom I share a great relationship with - and with our team from the head office in São Paulo.

Then work on updating my principle book When You Need to Be Strong, which is already in the 43rd edition,  talk to people; council some couples who consult me as a result of my other book Method for a Good Affective Relationship; give online night classes to all our schools from many countries".
