About Me

medspidermansqWelcome to Our Community!

My name is Barry Grimes, Certified Life Optimization Coach, author behind The Personalized Life Blog, Success Affirmations for Life optimization, the Optimize Your Life Course, Life Optimization after 50, Life Optimization Journey and owner of the Life Optimization Resource Center.

As you can tell from my mug shot my wife is a face painter!

My wife Sharon is the artist in the family, while I have not picked up any of her artistic skills, some of her creativity has rubbed off on me over the 33 years we’ve been married. We have four children Daric 32, Ashlei 27, Noah 12, Luke 9 and our Granddaughter Sierrah 10.

I enjoy traveling, spending time with my family, learning, creating personalized gifts, sports and coaching various youth sports. I also have a passion for cooking, especially grilling!

The purpose of this community is to offer an abundance of resources designed to help you optimize your life!

Life optimization is based  on 7 pillars:

  • Personal Development
  • Spiritual Development
  • Wealth
  • Health
  • Career
  • Relationships
  • Happiness

Over the past 30 years I have worked for Fortune 500 companies as well as, owning a MLM company and several other businesses. I enjoy sharing the knowledge I have picked up and the life lessons learned in these diverse worlds. I have traveled, lived and worked in different parts of the world, and picked up some unique knowledge and takes on life along the way.

From my travels and experiences over the years I have developed what I call the Personalized Life. It’s a lifestyle, but it’s an individual lifestyle that each person lives differently according to their needs, goals and life plan. I don’t believe in a cookie cutter approach since no two people have the exact same needs, goals or plan. One size may fit all, but one size is definitely not comfortable for all!

So, live a personalized life!

My journey to create the Personalized Life began 12 years ago when I was exposed to the book “Think and Grow Rich” written by Napoleon Hill. His think and grow rich philosophy has been working for over 100 years!

Since then I have studied various life optimization techniques and philosophies, under a number of experts, and worked hard to apply their teachings to my life. I’ve taken what’s worked best for me and used these philosophies and techniques to optimize my life.

I recently developed a course called; “Optimize Your Life”. It’s a 12 day course that provides you with the principals and philosophy for optimizing your own life. In addition I built an app that goes with the course, the Life Optimization Plan Builder, which helps you map out a detailed plan for your life optimization journey. I have written several e-books on a variety of topics, and more are on the way!

It’s all about optimizing your lifestyle!

I love creating personalized products because they fit into my philosophy of celebrating your individuality and stimulating creativity. But it goes beyond that and has a deeper meaning. For me, it’s truly a Way of Life!

In short, the personalized life is simply being yourself, standing out from crowd not conforming to what others think you should be, and optimizing your life so that you become the best you can be, and have all that you desire.

You only live once, so go for your dreams and don’t leave anything on the table of life!

I don’t pretend to have all of the answers, or to be some type of guru, but I do offer refreshing perspectives that are 100% real! I embrace mistakes and strive to learn and grow from them.  I love to learn and hear different points of view, so please share your experiences and invite your friends over to participate in our community!
