Jetsetting Lifestyle: Snowboarding Whistler on Wens, Vancouver Thrus, Fly To L.A. Friday, Lakers Game Sat, Biz Conference Sun, Sunset Surfing on Mon!

The title says it all:

A Jetsetting "Hollywood" Lifestyle

Wow, what a wicked week!

Snow boarding in Whister BC, Hanging out in Van City, Flying to LA, Hitting up a Lakers Game, Private Team Dinners & Parties, Masterminding with Self made Millionaires at an open invite event with 2000 people just like YOU who have now 'learned how to earn', then to wrap it all up, went surfing at Manhattan Beach in Sunny Southern Califonia...EPIC! Is all I can say...

Some of you were with me along the way on some of those trips/games/events/parties, but unfortunatly most of you that have been folowing my articles & invites weren't.

Most of you who read my last article "Meet me in LA" did not take me up on my invite & offer.
Why not?

Some of you inquired but most didn't even bother to create the possibility of learning how to live that kind of lifstyle...


OR, should I say "why not?"

I bet you looked at that title and said
'wow, I wish I could have done that this weekend. Even if I could just do ONE of those things this month, let alone day after day I would be happy.'

Am I right?

Here is the point: You could, and you still can!
I am not saying this to impress you, but to impress upon you that you
have the power and freedom of choice.

Plain & simple.

I traveled around Australia & Thialand for a WHOLE YEAR ALL ALONE when I was only 19
years old!

I had no cash, no friends or family to stay with, no job connections, I just DID IT!

Its not hard. It just starts with a choice.
You need to start looking at the question "how can I?"

Not the common response "I can't."

If you DID choose to be there, then you could have been snowboardng fresh powder all day with me and a few of my business partners at THE premier mountian resort in the world : Whistler

Or, you could have been at the NBA Basketball game with "The Dream Team" wacthing the L.A. Lakers (and the Laker girls of course) beat the Indina Pacers by
2 points when Kobe Bryant hit the game winning shot at the buzzer, it was an UNREAL game!

Check out this NBA LIVE video:

I really wish you were there my friend.

Masterminding with a Self Made Millionaire: My interview with Zenida Lorenzo

I hope next time you take me up on my invitation...

Until then:
Get off the bench & into the Game my friends!
The ball is in your court.

Create A Happy, Healthy & Wealthy 2009 AND Meet ME In L.A.

Happy New Year My Internet Family!

(That is something I never thought I would ever say.
FYI: This is an article I wrote New Years Day '09 on Facebook)

Regardless its true, like it or not but technology, online forums, Facebook, Twitter, MSN Messenger, text messages, mass marketing systems and the internet has changed how people relate, communicate and build relationships & businesses, for good!

You have two choices, either tap into this new trend or go live in a cave under a rock bacause you pretty already are if you aren't tuned into this new generation of technology (don't worry if you are not my friend, stay tuned in to this blog and you will be kept up to date with ALL the cutting edge innovations on how to profit from this revolution, Its really simple once you have the right teacher and education.

My mission is to provide you with both teaching & education ;)

Last night I went to a New Years World Peace Charity Concert with some amazing bands, speakers and ROCKED! & it turned on a light for me...

I was so inspired by the message of spreading 'the good word' of peace, prosperity & freedom my desire to add to this Butterfly Effect my commitment I created is to tap into this new age of infomation distribution and create a forum or more like a multi media interactive video blog to share thoughts, events, opintions, videos, tips & most importantly stories & experiences that I think would add value to EVERYONE'S life's & lifestyles in my personal attempt to make this crazy thing called life a better ride for everyone on board.

2008 is OVER, DONE, DELETED...

2009 is a blank canvas.

Now YOU have the paint brush :) There is a world of opportunity that is 'sitting, waiting, & wishing' as my man Jack Johnson sings for us to pick up the peices and put something $#%^%# awsome together with.

For those of you who know me personally, you probably know two of my goals this year is to assist in creating an online empire to set free 100 individuals (could be you) providing them with an exact business training game plan to leave their 'jobs' (Just Over Broke) and go from Employees-2-Entrepreneurs using a simple 3 step sales & marketing system ANYONE can use to create freedom for themselves working part time from home.

Want info on how to apply?

My second goal is to publish my first novel 365 days from today:
Jan 1, 2010. Wow that sounds wierd to say....

My Personal Story...Enjoy

Welcome My Friends To “This Crazy Thing Called Life”

Creating & writing a blog is an interesting experience, its like saying 'hey world, I am alive & I have something to to me...pleeeaaase..."

That is NOT the point of this blog.

This forum really is not about me, its about YOU.

My goal here is to teach, motivate and inspire YOU to go out and LIVE YOUR LIFE...
by sharing what I have done with my life.

It is also a platform to create an audience / community of people who may be interested in learning more about me, what I do and potentially even partnering up on some business ventures OR you may just want to tune in to check out these articles that are a prelude to a novel that I have a goal of publishing sometime before I leave this thing called "Earth"...

So, these are some of my experiences, stories, lessons learned & goals...
Some will offend you, some will bore you, some will inspire you... who knows what some will do?

My intention is to put a smile on your face and a thought in you head asking yourself:

“Why not?”

You are probably now wondering "Who is this Quinton Carlin guy & why would I wanna listen & learn from him?


Well, good quetion.

How about this, I’ll tell you why you may wanna tune into what I am all about and some of the things I've done, then I will tell you why you may not want too...


First off, I have a bizzare & somewhat inspiring 'Rags to Riches' kind of story...

Being an ordinary, broke college student living off my student loans and maxed out credit cards not too long ago, I got sick of the regular routine of the same old same old Rat Race day in day out exsistance.

To be completly honest & authentic with you, my life pretty much sucked...
Maybe you can relate:

I hated my job, I hated having to go back to university after my first degree couldn't get me the career that I wanted, I hated that I didn't have the freedom to do what I wanted when I wanted with who I wanted, I hated the fact that what I did seemed to have no real meaning, service or value to others (I didn't even really enjoy playing college basketball anymore!) I hated the fact that my girlfriend pretty much packed up & left taking the most important person (my son) out of my everyday life and not being able to pay a good lawyer to fight for my fatherly rights, (FYI: I am now in the process of appealing for full custody of my son with a lawyer and court date set, I will keep ya'll posted:)

Finally, I HATED working for other people building their businesses instead of my own and NOT getting paid what I was worth while I was makind some lazy SOB rich.
(sound familiar?)

So as you can see, it really did suck.

BUT, after reading 'Rich Dad Poor Dad' by Robert Kyiosaki I decided to
"WAKE UP". I started asking myself 'WHY'

"Why am I in some crappy class room reading bull-shit books that I could care less about...and PAYING to be there?"

"Why am I attracting relationships that turn into bad Soap Opras dramas?"

"Why was I trading my time for money for some jerk boss?"

Then, I made some changes.

I started studying various business opportunties and looking at things in a different way...

I was blown away with all the possibilities!

I left the safe & secure ‘education system’ & side steped the safe 40h/ work week Rat Race for next 40 years at 40K/year and chose to create my own path to travel down while developing my own ‘portable office’ by starting an online home based business to have more FREEDOM in my life.
Best move I ever made...

I launched this blog New Years Day 2009 to celebrate my second year after leaving the Routine Rat Race after joining the 'Slow Pace' as I call it.

January 1, 2007 I watched “The Secret” DVD and it blew my mind learning the Law of Attraction.

I always loved Personal Development (I had already completed a 4 year Degree in Conflict Resolution Counseling and was then working towards my Education Degree).

At the time I had a failing online Ebay business (as I was trying to figure out this 'internet thing' hoping to make a couple bucks off it) I also ran a summer surf camp on Vancouver Island in Tofino and did promotions for special events & nightclubs in Vancouver...but deep down I knew the potential power of the internet & that marketing products online was my ONLY way of avoiding the golden handcuff’s society slaps on the wrists of its corporate slaved ‘suits’.

Then, immediately after I watched the Secret I found a Personal Development Business Opportunity that was based on helping others. I didn't sleep for a week.

I analyzed the simple marketing system and was blown away.

With this new duplicatable marketing ‘System’ I created a new vision & goal to become a Business / Lifestyle Coach instead of a High School Basketball Coach like I was studying to become. I droped out of my college program immediately.

Everyone (including my parents) told me I was 'crazy' to leave school and get involved with 'one of those things' by starting my own business with a Leadership Company.

So instead of teaching teenagers how to shoot free throws, I would teach employees how to become self employed entrepreneurs & how to create their own online home business giving them the opportunity work for themselves (and our "Dream Team") instead of working for some jerk boss at a boring JOB (Just Over Broke).

I was blessed in becoming partners with Top Industry Leaders, Mentors & Trainers in the Home Business & Internet Marketing Industry after partnering up with the Top Personal Development Company Liberty League International as a Summit Advisor.

The Community / Company has assisted college students, stay at home moms, lawyers, financial advisors, mechanics, real estate agents & teachers walk away from their jobs and usually double thier income becoming home based professional entrepreneurs.

Talk about satisfying ;)

Since then, 'The Dream Team' has not looked back!

Our passion is empowering & teaching people how to live the lifestyle of their dreams...the life they deserve.

I am only 28 years old and thanks to this opportunity I have more stamps in my passport than most people twice my age!

The great thing is: YOU can too when you CHOOSE TOO..
I am not saying this to impress you, but to impress UPON you


when you play the game of life to win & make bold decisions and stop asking “why” and start asking “why not” ANYTHING is possible.

If I can do it, so can you. Plain & simple.

My goal is to teach 100 people how to become FREE of the Rat Race in 2009.

My questions to you is:

Will YOU be one of them?

I hope so :)


Here is a small glimpse of some of the adventures I have been on so far...
And been blessed to have survived in some cases :)

College Lifestyle, Mexico, Montreal, Australia, Thialand, Malaysia & much more:

Egypt, Jordan, Israel, New York, Surfing Tofino, Hollywood, Vegas & 'Mini Me'...

(Like I said above, I am not here to brag & boast about all the weird & wild things I have done. My intention is to show you whats possible when you start asking yourself some powerful questions, then making some powerful 'out of the box' desicions & taking action to create the kind of life you wanna live):

-Imagine what its like being the only white, English speaking person on an entire island in Malaysia, hiking through the jungle and exploring dimaond caves...
yes, you are right, it WAS bizarre...but it was so cool too!

-I walked from Jerusalem to Bethlehem and saw were Jesus was born and crucified in the same day....then I decided to climb Mount Sinai all night to watch the sunrise
(No I didn't find any left over commandment's Moses might have overlooked:)

-I was robbed, broke, stranded, strung out & homeless in Bangkok Thailand for a weekend. It sucked! I had to go to Canadian Embassy to prove I was a Canadian Citizen with no ID or passport to plane tickets...a travelers nightmare come true...I even missed my return flight home...BUT I survived...

-Ever wonder what getting lost all alone in the desert with only a camel & a chocolate bar in the middle of Middle Eastern Desert in Sinai would be like?
THEN, having the camel take off like a spooked horse and having to chase after it in the sand wearing flip flops feels like?
Its not as fun as it sounds...especially when it was getting dark & cold...
but once again...I survived.

-Sailing White Sundays for 15 days up Australian coast from Surfers Paridise to Arlie Beach then Scuba Diving The Great Barrier Reef. Amazing!

-Riding trains from Western Europe to Eastern Europe: Portugal - Greece for 5 days straight, 24/7 sleeping in a bunk that only is as long as half my body...
it was INSANE!

-1 year living in Quebec: "French kissing Montreal Models" should be a title of a book / or chapter I think...I LOVE Montreal!

-When I was 22 years old I spent 48 hours in New York buddy Jon & I stayed awake the whole time (besides sleeping in Central Part for a few hours)haha
I can't believe the things we used to do:
Young & Dumb...let the good times roll...

-I was a featured actor in the movie "A Season on The Brink" working with
Irish actor Brian Denehy. Rent me at blockbuster :)

-Afer graduating from my first degree program and being selected as a college scholarship basketball athlete, I walked away from my second degree program and got started on my own business venture...

-My 1st entrepreneurial endeavor I launched “Surfveza" (Surf + Cerveza = Surfveza) Surf Safari: Mayhem in Mexico”
Taking 30 college students to Mazatlan Mexico for spring break trip!
What a Gong Show!
After making money surfing & traveling I was hooked on the 'work less, play more & make more' business lifestyle..

-Then, after seeing the Egyptian Pyramids, I realized that the Network Marketing / Direct Sales Business Model (NOT MLM) or as the ignorant, uninformed & uneducated people call ‘pyramid sales’ is by far the BEST, strongest & most leveraged and lucrative business model EVER created & it is the simplest way for a regular person to make ALOT of money while building passive & residual income on the planet,
Bar none!
Unfortunatly the majority of people don't even know it exists!
Plus, it fit my lifestyle criteria: Work less, play more & make more.
It’s a beautiful thing.

FYI: Egypt was a BLAST! Even though I thought I was going to die alone sweating profusely in a hotel room in Cairo from the most intense food poisoning I have EVER was not a pretty sight...

-My 2nd entrepreneurial endeavor I was blessed to have earned 13K profit in 1 day via the brilliant compensation plan of the Network Marketing Business Model (this is the same team I am giving 100 other people the opportunity to profit from as well).
Thats what is 'possible' in Free Enterprise my friends and FYI, I am not even close to being a top earner in my primary company! Seriously.

Then I decided it made sense to spend 12K to attend week long workshop in Rome Italy with some other investment I have ever made because when you
Learn More = Earn More.
(Easy come, easy go)

*I am currently accepting 2 New Joint Venture Partners/ Week who want to work with me and my Dream Team of leadership trainers...
Contact: for personal interview with me*

-One time I was driving a rented red jeep through what turned out to be a war zone in Northern Thailand as we were heading to the Burma boarder for a passport stamp visa update. At the boarder we got chased buy a guy who we called 'Dr. Gonzo' who turned out to be a Thai Opium dealer on a motor bike...he wanted our passports apparently.Armed soldiers caught him...we got our stamps & got the #%$#%# out of there!Sorry to tell you that now mom...but once again, I survived.

-Worked & volunteered with the Sydney Olympics in 2000...what an amazing experience
working with top athletes!

-I almost burnt down a backpackers hostel in Sydney after my first night out in Australia by leaving a microwave able pizza in a toaster after falling asleep...apparently jet leg IS a killer.

-I packed my Portable Business in my Backpack for 3 months & traveled all over Europe with the one true love of my life (you know who you are / where...)

-On that trip I was drugged, mugged, blackmailed & pretty much kidnapped & jailed in Morocco outside the Sahara Desert. %$#@ Morocco!

-Learnt how NOT to drive coast to coast across Canada on a road trip with friends.

-Bundgy jumping in Australia...Sooooooooooo scary!

-Jumping off a cliff in Portugal and cracking my hip and being bed ridden for 5 days :(

-Won the Jackpot in Vegas New Years Day, then getting a Tattoo at 4am then extended my trip, hitchhiked to LA with thousands of dollars in my sock & surfed Southern Cali

-Got another tattoo in Cancun Mexico by a Mexican man named 'Jesus' who did not speak a word of English (I do not speak Spanish either) it was interesting.

-I bought a car in Sydney and put my surf on top and drove all across Australia:
Sydney to Perth...over 3000 km. An epic road trip.

**All the above have been Unreal & Unforgettable!!**

-So my friends: Welcome to the last few years of my life!

However, all these random adventures & experiences, trips & kicks really mean nothing to me anymore...

I have put these days behind me because the most incredible, educational,inspiring, emotional & meaningful blessed experience I have had so far is the birth of my son,
Ethan Ashton Carlin.

I love & I live for my lil' lad.
He is why I do what I do.

So, to answer your questions from earlier: "why shouldn’t you tune into this blog?"
I’ll make you want to quit your JOB (Just Over Broke) partner up with our Dream Team & learn how YOU can start living your dream lifestyle NOW. If not now, then when?

Life is a Choice.
Tune in, or STAY tuned out.
Choice is yours.

I’m writing these words for you...
Enjoy them.

Till Next Time,
Enjoy YOUR Life...
