Your Bigger Future Starts Here:

Money - Relationships - Wellness

“To live a fulfilled life, we need to keep creating the "what is next" of our lives. Without dreams and goals there is no living, only merely existing, and that is not why we are here.”

- Mark Twain


We all know that money is an essential commodity that helps you run your life. Philosophically speaking, money cannot buy everything - but practically, money actually is the vehicle to buy everything in our world. Money helps keep a roof over our heads and food in our bellies. It's often also used for calculating the status of any person.

Research continues to show $105,000 to be the ideal income for life satisfaction in Northern America. Earnings past this point tend to coincide with lower levels of happiness and well-being.  There becomes a certain point where money fails to benefit well-being in terms of both feelings and your evaluation. 

From a non-profit organization that survives primarily on donations, we understand the extreme importance of money.  However, we also emphasize the importance of doing something you truly love instead of solely pursuing extra money. We recognize that both sides are true: practically, money does buy everything, but philosophically, it doesn't.


How deep is your love? Studies continue to show that long-lived individuals reaching the end of life regret not having more meaningful and deep relationships. Relationships are imperative for many different reasons; they can increase our emotional well-being, create stability, teach us how to be a good friend or mates, provide us with someone to count on and trust in times of need and someone to vent to when we face challenges, and friends and mates take away loneliness and make us feel included.

Each of our relationships elicit different responses in ourselves that help us to grow and learn about ourselves. Relationships are often the glue that holds us together during times of stressful situations and when we face life difficulties. Without relationships, we would have a deadened spirit and a lack of connection to our true selves!

The world is filled with a ton of great talkers and holds very few great listeners. Relationships are all about being a great listener without holding judgment.


WELLNESS matters. Maintaining an optimal level of wellness is absolutely crucial to live a higher quality of life. Wellness matters because everything we do and every emotion we feel relates to our well-being.  In turn, our well-being directly affects our actions and emotions. It’s an ongoing circle. Therefore, it is important for everyone to achieve optimal wellness in order to subdue stress, reduce the risk of illness, and ensure positive interactions.

Sleep is one of the most influential factors in this ongoing cycle. Our guidance places a heavy emphasis on helping you improve your quality of sleep.  Sleep deprivation is so potent that it can easily launch us into a downward spiral that, for many, can lead to depression or chronic pain.  When you’re in pain, you can’t sleep, then anxiety bestows and becomes extremely difficult to make any type of imperative decisions. Getting your wellness in order is a key first step towards making meaningful decisions during any transition.

Through Our Direct Training and Assistance,
You Will Learn:

  • Get Known Using LinkedIn. Did you know that LinkedIn, the professional social networking platform, has actually been around longer than Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, and Instagram? But it's more relevant now than ever.
    Why? Because it hosts more than 500 million professional profiles, which means nearly an unlimited supply of network connections and job opportunities. From seeking a new job to maintaining your personal brand, LinkedIn is an important part of being a full-fledged professional in any industry these days.

  • Take Control of your Resume. People often think that a resume is an important tool for your job search because it offers a page or two where you can display your top skills and qualities. However, a resume is much more than that.
    Resumes help employers make hiring decisions and help you get your first interview. That's why it matters how you structure yours and what information you decide to include. With our help, you’ll get actionable resume tips specific to service members that will help you achieve your next career move.

  • How To Start a Side Gig. The phrase “side hustle” has gained popularity over the years. What started as a term referring to making a little extra money outside of a day job has turned into a way of life for many.
    However, side jobs aren’t just for covering expenses. There are several reasons why you should start a side hustle, even if you can live comfortably off of your primary income. We discuss things to consider as you evaluate your primary job search and the prospect of side hustling.

  • Get Better Sleep. Most people know that regular movement, eating well, sleep, and stress management are important for looking and feeling better. Yet they need help applying that knowledge in the context of their busy, sometimes stressful lives.

  • Eat Better, Feel Better. Your food choices each day affect your health — how you feel today, tomorrow, and in the future.  Good nutrition is an important part of leading a healthy lifestyle. Combined with physical activity, your diet can help you to reach and maintain a healthy weight, reduce your risk of chronic diseases (like heart disease and cancer), and promote your overall health.

  • Find your Inner Soul. Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us. It is important to create an intention of stillness — to have some intentionality about how we’re carrying ourselves in a given moment — and to focus on what is within our control.

  • Answer Your Questions Through and Entire Network. American Dream U has put 17 years of dedication to provide you the best veteran network available.
