After coming home from the Navy, Steve began working in the trades. Desiring to become his own boss, he then started a mechanical insulation business. As a typical entrepreneur, Steve noticed that he still had a couple of hours left in the 24-hour day to work a little more, so he picked up a couple of houses to flip…just as a hobby. He soon ended up becoming an accidental landlord, and in no time at all, this “hobby” became a full-time job on top of his already full-time job.
Steve and his wife, Laura, have bought and sold more than 150 properties and at one point had a rental portfolio of 84 properties, mostly single-family homes. They had the thought that once they had 100 rental properties they would find “freedom”, but the closer they got to achieving that goal, the further away their freedom actually became.
Steve is so grateful to Lifeonaire and its message for identifying the blind spots that were holding him back, both personally and in his various businesses. Making the course corrections as needed, and with the creation of a “life vision”, they were set on the road to freedom. Steve desires to share these principles with you, so that you too may “get back your life”.
“Never get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life.”

Kathy Neubauer is a person who truly believes in the value of people and makes it her mission to share the message of communication and connection through leadership. Kathy is currently an International Life and Leadership Coach in her own business, Kathy’s Coaching (KathyNeubauer.com), as well as works as a Life Coach for Lifeonaire. She believes that everyone is a leader and that each person has influence over those around him/her, whether intentionally or unintentionally. In her opinion, Leadership is not a title but rather a character trait that once developed changes a person’s whole outlook on life, relationships, and business. Kathy finds great joy walking beside her clients and serving them as they begin to experience what they really, really desire for their lives: both personally and professionally. She has been blessed with the uncanny ability to connect and communicate with others which allows people to let their guard down and find their authentic selves, improving all aspects of their lives.
Through the idea that, “We don’t know what we don’t know,” Kathy opens people up to identifying the blind spots that may be holding them back from excelling to the next level. Once these areas are revealed, incredible things begin to happen! She believes that everyone has a lid that blocks his/her potential and those who are dedicated to the process will soar beyond their greatest imaginations! She has countless successful clients, who see her not only as a coach, but as a friend.
“Kathy is such a caring person. Her loving demeanor and giving heart makes her easy to talk to, like you have been friends for years even if you just met her.” Ken H. Real-Estate Investor, Columbia, SC
Kathy spent more than thirty-five years in the healthcare industry, with the majority of that time in a Health Insurance management role, and was the “Director of Health Claims and Configuration” prior to transitioning to coaching full-time. Her management style has always been a “People First Culture,” which resulted in a very successful career. Kathy fully embraced the concept, “People don’t care about how much you know until they know how much you care.” Her focus was to invest in the personal growth of her team, creating more leaders than followers. Together, they achieved significant success. Throughout her career, she maintained less than a 2% turnover rate versus a 12.2% turnover rate in the insurance industries, according to a 2016 Compensation Force study. She attributes that to her leadership style. In Kathy’s humble opinion, leadership style is something anyone can learn, and this belief helps drive her personal growth and coaching business.
In 2016, Kathy left the corporate world and pursued her passion to make a difference in the lives of others. This led her to become a certified speaker, coach and trainer on the John Maxwell Team. She is also a certified Maxwell DISC Method Trainer and Consultant. Kathy has always believed in the principles of John Maxwell and led her business leadership in that manner. During her own journey of personal growth, Kathy realized that there was so much that people just don’t know about themselves and each other. Because of that lack of understanding, people have become a society of survivors who often struggle to find joy in their day-to-day lives. Kathy has experienced many deep trials and challenges in her life, which she now understands were necessary. These experiences taught her the lessons she needed to follow her purpose and passion in life and make a difference in the lives of others.
In addition to her successful coaching career Kathy is a successful single woman, with two amazing adult children, 7 incredible grandchildren and a beautiful daughter-in-law. Her family is her pride and joy. Kathy spends a great deal of her time serving others in a number of ministries and mission programs, locally and internationally. She is the Vice President of the not-for-profit organization, Women of Worship Sorority.

Currently the Brazer’s reside in Pevely, Missouri, in a home they wrote into existence when they developed their vision in 2013. Their home was in their vision for two years before it appeared to them as an opportunity on a bandit sign. It is a beautiful 1800s two-story farmhouse with three additional residences and the original barn and chicken coop from the early 1800s on a picturesque 10.5 acres. They have one son, Myles, who is the light of their life and was born a Lifeonaire. They get to spend everyday with him and get to teach him how to grow up.
Amanda Markley came to Lifeonaire after almost ten years in the insurance and investment industry. She had grown up in a multi-generational family of entrepreneurs, and was able to directly learn from her incredible dad, who was a serial entrepreneur (just kidding, but seriously – he ran over 20 businesses). She started her first business at 19 yrs old.
Running her own financial firm presented many opportunities for impacting people, and gaining valuable experiences, but she had really become an expert at surviving 90 -100 hr work weeks, managing 60+ employees, meal prepping and household management techniques through chaos, handling her own limiting beliefs and an abusive relationship, and sometimes juggling other part time jobs to make ends meet within her business and home life. Ultimately, she was bored, exhausted, lonely, seriously burnt out! She didn’t really know herself, her passions, or her family any more. “This is not what life is supposed to be like”, she thought to herself often.
Her hard work left her with a failed relationship, a pending lawsuit, and some tough business decisions to make in the end. She then realized that her passion wasn’t for the financial industry, but for financial education. Having seen thousands of families discuss finances together, work through their marriages with her, and plan for their futures, she set out to find a way to focus more just that – coaching families through life, business, and tough discussions about their future. This seemed way more fun!
After some serious soul searching (and basically turning herself into a science experiment for a year), she realized that she had been through hell and back, and not only survived, but was able to thrive! (Cliche, but true.)
Amanda’s true passion lies in helping organizations and entrepreneurs make their goals become a reality for the benefit of others’ growth and an enhanced community. She loves helping people look at their past, present, and future, to address everything they are avoiding. She loves doing the “real” work with people, getting in the trenches with them, and helping them light their internal fire again.
In the past, her businesses lent to her coaching employees on how to take ownership in their work, developing managers to be true leaders, and collaborating with other business owners about focused growth and expanded visions. She has also worked to develop courses on onboarding, time management, marketing psychology, personal and leadership development, non-profit trainings, and other specific subject matter areas. Some of Amanda’s other skills include:
She enjoys rock and ice climbing, running (very) long distances, backpacking, traveling, learning languages, meeting new people, writing, and singing in her free time. If you are looking for her, you will most likely find her outside, planning her next adventure. Her greatest joy in life is knowing that Lifeonaire has helped her smile again – finding true work life balance – and supporting that fairytale dream life. She would say, “Dreams really do come true.”
After graduating college and bumming around the world for a while as a raft guide and ski bum, Ken began his business career in 1987 as a real estate appraiser. He began buying rentals a few years later and flipped his first house in 1995. He has been self-employed for 20 years and has owned appraisal, property management, and investment real estate businesses. Over the years Ken has done almost every type of real estate investing – rehabs, rentals, subject-to deals, lease options, development and new construction. He has seen low interest rates and high. He has seen buyers markets and seller markets. He has adjusted his investing strategies again and again to meet the different investing environments. He has had great years and years with many challenges and uses this experience as he coaches newer investors. Today Ken focuses mainly on rehabs using private money. He is a proponent of debt-free business and a Lifeonaire lifestyle. He believes in controlling his own money via self-directed IRA’s and invests with other Lifeonaire’s this way. He formed the Lifeonaire Investor Group as a way to facilitate these investments and also as a way to help others understand how self-directed IRA’s work. He coaches Lifeonaire Titanium with a passion for keeping others from making all the mistakes he made along the way.
Since joining Lifeonaire in 2010 Ken Holmes has gone from having three full time businesses and an office with staff to running just one real estate business out of his room over the garage at home. He now has way more time to spend with his wife, kids, and hobbies. In other words – he now has a LIFE! And his income is better than what he had with all those businesses. He enjoys the great outdoors via whitewater kayaking and camping.

Brett and Jacci Konkle have been through a LOT of life-correcting experiences in the more than 20 years they’ve been together, but finding the Lifeonaire vision is what began the change for the better. They’ve always struggled to get businesses started and profitable while trying to live life at the same time. From bankruptcy to massive success, they’ve lived it all together, but most times it was just too busy and stressful.
Today, they have a better scope on life with their vision in front of them, and there’s a much happier balance of life, business, life experiences, and giving back. There’s plenty of time to enjoy it all, and take the kids away to play every weekend.
The Konkles are real estate investors and local mentors in their REIA. They have invested in just about every type of real estate possible so far. They have found great success in their real estate business while also being able to help others in totally non-related businesses. The principles are the same no matter what you do, and they enjoy sharing those concepts and the Lifeonaire vision-building with other stressed out entrepreneurs.
Brett and Jacci live in Freedom, WI with their two daughters, Kyla and Hailey, a flock of egg laying chickens and their little dog, Piddles.

Chuck Bauman II is an author, speaker, entrepreneur and Lifeonaire. He coaches many successful business people and has helped thousands of people to live their visions now rather than later.

JP Moses is “a roughly-hewn man-child” (his own words) who first got into real estate after reading Rich Dad, Poor Dad back in Y2K and went ‘full time’ in 2002. Through many twisty turns in his business over the years, he’s tinkered in everything from landlording to short sales to rehabs to Realtoring to lease options to REOs, he started and ran his local REIA club for 6 years, blah, blah, blah… Until he finally dug deep into wholesaling houses and has since flipped somewhere north of 400+ transactions.
Today JP enjoys most being a creative ‘ideas guy’, business-building, and leading people well. He still wholesales houses in his local market, and also owns a thriving content creation company with REI’s biggest gurus and trainers as his clients, and also serves as El Presidente of AwesomeREI.com.
Involved in Lifeonaire since it’s inception, JP’s passionate about helping others along their journey, and pours a ton of his heart and soul into sharing from the real-life lessons learned from his own real estate and business-building experiences.
He’s also a guy of deep faith, and a die-hard family man (have you seen how cute his kids are?!) Among his core values are authenticity, creativity, leadership, value-giving, general fun-ness and being unshaven.
He’s super proud to bring an extra dose of awesomeness to Lifeonaire as a long time member and coach. He also finds writing about himself in the third person strangely soothing.
Charley has been a follower of Jesus Christ for over two decades. He has been married to his wife Kelly for 26 years and has 9 children (7 boys and 2 girls.) For nearly three decades he has never had a “real job” and has started many successful businesses. Realizing that many of those businesses required too much of his time, he has focused the last few years on business ownership. Being a business owner has allowed him time to focus on relationships in his family, church and community.
Building relationships is what gives Charley his true life purpose and meaning. Connection to people is the driving force in his vision.
Charley has started many businesses and has found that multiple income streams work better for him then a single stream. Prior to entering the real estate market, he owned and operated a thriving excavation business. After defining his vision, he found that being an operator was not where he wanted to be. He has successfully flipped dozens of properties, purchased and rehabbed a portfolio of 40 single family rentals. Current streams include a free and clear rental portfolio, flipping houses and coaching on life, business, and real estate.
Identifying his big “why” has allowed Charley to be vision-focused and in control of his time. He has spent decades mentoring men from work and church on a wide range of topics, from being a better husband and father to balancing work and family time. Mentoring college students has become a new journey where he is helping those just starting out in their careers to make plans for their life.
Lifeonaire has been life-transforming for Charley and his family. As their older children finish school, they are entering the real estate business with him. He has been able to hand the day-to-day operations of the business to his two eldest children. His vision allowed him to enjoy experiences on his Bucket List in the present, and not postpone his joy to the future. On his Bucket List was a trip with his father to the family gravesite in North Dakota and to see the Badlands in South Dakota. Also on his Bucket List was a roadtrip across the western US with his wife and all nine kids. Before Lifeonaire, “work” would have made these trips impossible.
Charley has found that the principles taught in Lifeonaire can’t help but transform your life when you are living with intention and with a written vision. His vision is to impact as many individuals and families with the transformative principles of Lifeonaire as possible.
From being a college dropout and working on a road construction crew, to having two failed restaurants, and then to becoming a national real estate investor mogul, Steve Cook’s rags to riches story and his journey through life’s ups and downs has inspired many.
As a professional real estate investor, he has done over 550 deals and made millions of dollars, and it was that very success that led him to realize that having true abundance isn’t about a lot of money or possessions – it’s about having a wealth of life.
With this understanding, Steve founded Lifeonaire and now his passion is sharing the message with others to help them live prosperous, abundant lives. His deep Christian faith and core belief that the greatest blessing of all is being able to bless others, has led him to a life of giving back. He is a dedicated husband, father, coach, keynote speaker, trainer, and author.
Living in a small, vibrant town in Wisconsin, Steve lives very intentionally according to his vision of a simple life where he enjoys his days alongside his beautiful wife Micheleen and their wonderful children. He gives God all the glory for the many blessings he has in his life.
