Who is Dallas Cyr?

About me

I am an “Edutainer” using music, poetry, movies and other forms of entertainment to teach self-mastery. I have been told that I exude invigorated energy. That is because I believe we live in a world of endless possibilities, and I am always learning and growing in this pursuit. My passion and my life’s work is to ignite the spirits of others who are seeking to explore, embrace and enjoy reaching their full potential and realizing the “riches” of life.

In 2002, I started a financial services business. In my practice I helped hundreds of clients protect, build and manage millions of dollars in assets. I had a  degree of  success, but it wasn’t enough. It proved to me that there is so much more to life. I wanted more and when I found it, I immediately wanted to help others to find the same joys… the joys of having a full life and a life of balance.

Today I don’t just help people have success in their finances but in all areas of their life!

It has been my realization that the better you are as a person, the better your career, relationships and life will be. To reach your potential in every area of your life, you need to be clear on what it is that you really want. With this in mind, personal development becomes key. It all starts with you. With that said; often the “journey to master ones life” is best traveled with a guide. That’s me, “Your Guide on the Journey to Self-Mastery”!

My Story

I was born and raised in Hartford, Connecticut in the inner-city. I had to learn how to defend myself and adapt streets smarts at an early age. I never say I was raised in the ghetto but lets say where I lived was a close cousin.

I was fortunate to have a loving Mom and Dad but financially we struggled at times and I recall a few Holidays where the Church came by with some bags and boxes to make sure we had something to celebrate. At one point we were on welfare and things were tough but I never really knew how tough until I got a bit older.

I was never handed anything. In fact my parents couldn’t afford to buy me a car or send me to college, they never went themselves. I think even if they had the money they would’ve made me work.

My Dad left and moved to California when I was 11 years old and at that time my parents gave me the choice, “who do you want to live with” they asked, “me or your Mom?” Some how they knew I could handle making the decision. I have always been ‘older’. I’ve been told many times I am an old soul.

I spent the summers with Dad in California and school year with Mom in CT. As soon as I hit 16 years old I was taking a city bus 20 miles to work at Denny’s, my first job as a dishwasher; later a host and server.  I would sometimes work until 10:00pm on a school night, then I would wake the next day and walk a mile to school at 7:00 A.M. no matter the weather (no, not up-hill both ways) and back to work right when I got home; I had rent to pay, literally.

After high school I didn’t want to go to college so I went to work retail. A year later I was fired and jobless. Collecting unemployment I sat at home for ten months watching 13 hours of TV a day.

Finally I decided enough was enough and I had to get off my butt. To motivate myself I created a poster board with pictures, words and dollar amounts that excited & inspired and helped me turn my mood around. Almost two decades later it turns out I created a vision board at the age of 19 through pure intuition. It worked and I was hired at an insurance company just before turning 20 doing a data entry position. I actually failed the entry test but the  Human Resource representative like my attitude and polite manners so much she had me back to retake the test.

In that position I found my first real mentor who saw potential in me. She was  former drill Sergeant and believed in me. We really hit it off and after a  couple of years she encouraged me to post out for another position since I had hit the top of my pay scale.

I got a great new job in another division and it was suggested that I get my financial license to be better equipped as a phone rep. I did it because it came with a bonus and a raise! I dove head first into the book and loved it! I passed that test with flying colors and found a new passion.

Within two years I was in plan management and bored out of my mind stuck in a cubicle. I posted out to marketing jobs and financial positions internally but no one would consider me. I went back to school at night to get my degree hoping it would make me more hirable. I was working two jobs, insurance in the day, a waiter at night and on the weekends, AND going to school. But I couldn’t wait until school was done, it was time to move on. I put my resume on Monster and in three months I was at New York Life learning to build a financial practice while finishing my degree in Business Management.

As it says above I did well was sent on free trips, helped hundreds of clients through the years but lost the fire and passion, started to question if I was happy doing the work and eventually came into personal financial trouble after five years in business. I knew how to look outside and help others but not how to look in the mirror and take my own advice, maybe you can relate.

I had always read self-help books, listen to Cd’s and tried to improve my life but I didn’t apply much and nothing really seemed to work. At one point I had a life coach that I worked with for over a year. I went to three life changing workshops and after two years, after struggle and depression I had hit my bottom and was ready.

I went back and reviewed all my notes, started not just reading but studying and APPLYING the information from books, Cd’s and seminars and really giving thought to what all my great mentors along the way had taught me. In less than Two short years I was making a bunch of money, saving money, starting a new business, being asked to speak at events, being mentored by a multi-millionaire and had paid off over $36,000. of personal debt!

I am here to tell you if I can do it YOU CAN DO IT!! That is my mission and the purpose of this blog to share what I learned, what worked for me and personally guide you to self-mastery for there lies all the treasure you seek and “Deserve”.

We’re only getting started!

Here is to your SUCCESS, wishing you Peace & Prosperity,

Dallas Cyr
