He is the host of the #1 Ranked “Conscious Millionaire Podcast,” with over 20 Million monthly listeners in 190 countries. He is the Founder and CEO of Conscious Millionaire Institute LLC, a global entrepreneur business coaching, training, and wealth-product business.
JV has been an entrepreneur since the age of 4, when he set up his pup tent to sell “hand-squeezed tangerine juice” to high-school students when they got off the bus. At the age of 5, he decided the answer to his family’s often rocky and uncertain financial life was to grow up to become a millionaire. Like many kids who grew up with a lot of financial uncertainty, he dreamed of a different life.
By the age of twenty-five, he had realized that dream and celebrated by purchasing a new luxury home on the water and his first Mercedes. He had the “American Dream.”
Life was great, except for one thing. JV quickly realized that his childhood dream had not included the truly important parts of life, such as feeling a deep sense of purpose and fulfillment. Although he had all the trappings of wealth and success on the outside, he felt empty inside.
This awareness led him to two decades of searching, which included studying extensively in the areas of both human potential and spirituality. JV wanted more and was determined to discover the answer to what was missing in his life.
Seeking a Larger Purpose…
Ultimately, he sold the companies and went off to seek the meaningful life that he was missing. JV learned to meditate at Gampo Abbey, a Buddhist Monastery in Nova Scotia, Canada; then, he delved into his inner psyche by doing work-study at Esalen, a human potential center on the Big Sur Coast of California.
After several years of meditating and living a more connected life, he ultimately discovered what he was on Earth to do. This realization occurred when he read the word “Conscious” on a pamphlet page; JV immediately saw the phrase “Conscious Millionaire” in his mind. Intuitively, he realized that this was the answer he had been seeking – his path for giving back and positively impacting others’ lives and our world.
Six months later, he had the inspiration to start a non-profit named “Conscious World” in a similar moment of realization. Being an attorney, he trademarked both and began his journey of developing Conscious Millionaire as a business and Conscious World as a non-profit.
Now, he devotes himself to helping others find their dream by growing a business that combines profits with creating an essential difference for their customers and our world.
