018: Leading by Principles with Dave MacArthur

Dave MacArthur was once a broke unhealthy, unfulfilled mechanic just getting by and barely at that. Today, he is a healthy, fit, purpose driven, multi-millionaire and Seven figure annual income earner. He is a devoted husband, father of five kids and a grandfather, an author, Host of the Inc. Magazine’s #12 ranked podcast “Mechanic to Millionaire.” Dave is a health advocate, educator, lecturer on universal laws and mindset and the human anatomy specializing in Telomeres, the protective caps on the ends of chromosomes. Dave sees himself as an entrepreneur, philanthropist and disciple of Christ.

Dave has used his gifts to bring health and financial freedom to many on his journey and that journey is just beginning.

I want to share a quote from Dave:

“There is no finish line in life. No retirement. All things are possible to them that believe. Life is a continuous journey of growth, development, impact and contribution, progress and expansion. What I want for myself I want for everyone, to inspire creativity, independence, abundance and the support and ability to see it through. Our past does not dictate our future and principle trumps precedence. “More for all and less for none.” May we all continue onward and upward until at last we find that we have brought heaven to earth.” — Dave MacArthur
