Our Story

Have you ever looked back at an old picture of yourself and laughed out loud?! Miguel and Gina definitely laugh out loud when they look back at this classic 80’s shot! 

Miguel & Gina were both born and raised in the Silicon Valley.  Though they lived in the same city they attended different schools and never crossed paths until their teenage years. What do you think brought them together? The better question is, who brought them together?  Annette Williams was the magnificent matchmaker! She knew Miguel from school and Gina from church. She thought they would be a good match and she was right.

Since they met during their high school years and have some hilarious 80’s & 90’s dance pictures to prove it, people assume that Miguel and Gina were high school sweethearts. Have you ever assumed wrong? They were actually quite the opposite of high school sweethearts. They were more like the high school roller coaster!

Years later, the roller coaster came to an end when Gina finally committed (yes, she was the one with the commitment issue!) and they were married. Then the adventure really began.

Along the way they earned their Bachelor’s Degrees(Miguel in Business and Gina in Education) and together they began building a strong marriage, a strong family and strong businesses. 

They set a daunting goal of building a custom home from the ground up! People told them they would get divorced through the home building process but they proved them wrong. (They not only survived the home building process, they have now been married for over 23 years :)

Miguel and Gina were not perfect parents and they readily admit that to everyone! However, they did everything they could to help their two sons to succeed. They supported Caleb and Trent in their academic, athletic, musical and scouting achievements.

They helped their boys learn how to set goals, how to work, how to save money and how to serve others.  Before they turned 18, Caleb and Trent each saved over $10,000, earned their Eagle Scout Award and were accepted to their 1st choice University!

Miguel and Gina are Success Coaches and have had countless opportunities to mentor and help people of all ages and stages in life. Their success has landed them on stage at corporate conferences to share their wisdom with others.

They have also been invited to be guest speakers and leaders to inspire and motivate children, teenagers and adults through engaging presentations and team building activities.   
Miguel and Gina love each other, love their boys and love the opportunities they have to help empower others to be successful!
