Behind-the-scenes: we shoot many lifestyle-improvement videos for instantDane.tv. I work with my partner David helping others to buy and sell luxury properties in warm-weather climates. Many of our clients are people currently overseas who want to add a Southern California or Hawaiian home to their real estate portfolio.

1.  I was born and raised in California.

 

2.  One rainy Saturday afternoon as a young boy, I happened to see a Tony Curtis movie on tv called The Rat Race – and it occurred to me for the first time that I was a "creative."

 

3.  I’ve worked as a wellness coach and Pilates trainer for decades. To this day, I remain passionate about fitness, yoga and – in particular – Pilates. 

 

4.  I have a masters degree in counseling psychology and have over 200 health articles published online.

 

5.  I love people, yet I require enormous amounts of solitude in order to maintain my happy disposition.

 

6.  I live on an off-the-grid, tropical island farm. I shower outdoors in rain water, and my electricity comes from the sun.

 

7.  Professionally, my spouse and I help people upgrade their daily lifestyle by finding them the home that best matches their unique interests – including people who are relocating internationally. 

 

8.  I wiggle my toes a lot – I’m a big believer in joy.

 

9.  My favorite novel of all time is Another Roadside Attraction – a quirky story that reveals how to allow abundant happiness into your life even when you’re convinced you’ll never fully fit in.

 

10.  The most inspiring movie I’ve ever seen is a 1940s melodrama called Now, Voyager. It reveals a heroine’s journey from woundedness into empowerment. 

 

11. I’m so enthusiastic about helping people craft their ideal lifestyle that I curate six different websites on the subject:

 

“Among life’s finer sights is a person enjoying what he’s doing with his life. It delivers a bearing and an attitude that is hard to fake and it allows the person a kind of grace and resilience even in tough times.

If you have not already done so, meet Dane Findley. He does good work and sets us a good example.

You could do much worse than fill in your life’s white spaces with such people. (Place them in those spots freed-up because you finally cut loose some of the people who were just drains upon you. Yeah?)”
