In 1997 Curtis read a book called “You Can Heal Your Life” by Louise Hay. That was the beginning of his transformation. Louise Hay philosophy was very different from the things he learned growing up. Applying the principles that she taught brought powerful changes to his life. He wanted to learn more about Hay’s philosophies, so he attended training in San Diego to certify as a Louise Hay Teacher and Coach. The things he learned there have been more useful to him than his undergraduate degree in Psychology. He immediately began building a coaching clientele and leading workshops to show others how to love themselves
