This is not your average ‘self-help’ book. I’m hoping to share some of the lessons I have learned throughout my life. Some of these lessons may seem like common sense, but the process of discovering the truths that lie behind them has been far from straightforward or clear-cut. Writing this book has itself been part of the learning process, and there are many lessons left to be learned. I hope that in sharing my experiences with a wider audience, I can help people to avoid making some of the mistakes I made and find a clearer path to self-fulfillment and happiness.

It seems to me that people nowadays give up much too easily; they stumble and falter at the first hurdle, giving up before they have given themselves a real chance to get started. It is one of life’s oldest lessons - you will get a few knocks along the way; it is how we learn. But the thing that really sets successful people apart is that they take these blows on the chin and keep on going. If I had been knocked down by circumstance or misfortune, I get right back up on my feet and try to find a new way of meeting the challenge. I was never one of those people who stay down when they meet adversity, and neither are you.

Hopefully, this book will inspire you to get out, change something, go after something, or at the very least give you hope that if you are proactive in your life, things will change.

Most people want logical answers and guarantees. They want to know that they’ll get to realize their dreams. And I do, too, but those guarantees do not exist out there. Those guarantees exist within you. You are your own guarantee. When you learn to trust in yourself, you will quickly learn and naturally be led where you need to be. And sometimes it won’t be pleasant, but as the Dalai Lama says: “Remember that sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck.”

Burman Books have published some of the best-selling authors including; World renowned International speaker and Motivational Coach Joe Vitale, lecturer, entrepreneur, and teacher preaching the gospel of positive thinking Bob Proctor, Comedian and Entertainer Carla Collins, World leading behaviuoral expert Dr. John Demartini, Motivational Speaker and Master Hypnotherapist Sanjay Burman, Entrepreneur and Canadian television personality Frank D'Angelo and Internatianally known Feng Shui Master Marie Diamond.

You can purchase your copy at any bookstore (Chapters or Indigo), Amazon, Google Digital/Audio downloadable program March 2013, or we will have them readily available at the spa this fall, 2012.

Lorenzo Kunze II, CLS, MLS
Laser Instructor

LorenzoLorenzo began his laser training at a very young age. His family’s first clinic and college opened over 65 years ago and was located in his grandmother Helen’s house. When Lorenzo was a kid he would come home from school to two very strong and influential people who worked very hard to be at the forefront of technology and education within the aesthetic community. As the son of Lorenzo Kunze Sr. and the grandson of Helen Kunze, he was granted the privilege of being handed down two generations of knowledge and expertise in this field.​

Lorenzo is a fully certified veteran in the laser tattoo removal and laser education industry. In 15 plus years of practicing and teaching the art of tattoo removal, Lorenzo has had the honor of being the head laser instructor for several of the top laser colleges in the U.S. He is often privately contracted by some of the top laser manufactures in the industry to assist with training and technical protocol and is considered to be one of the top tattoo removal experts in the world. These types of opportunities and experiences have afforded him with a wealth of knowledge, along with the opportunity to teach and mentor some of the finest laser technicians in the world. 

Lorenzo was raised in Colorado, but now in lives Canada and has always continued to give back to both communities. Lorenzo has made it a necessity to donate his time and resources to helping teens and adults who are trying to make positive life changes. Lorenzo and staff make it part of our job to give back and pay it forward to the public by offering free tattoo removal treatments to those who are in need but cannot afford it. We offer these services to clients that have been rehabilitated, ex-gang members who are going through a youth rehabilitation program, and single mothers and fathers who are having trouble finding work due to their tattoos.

One of the greatest rewards that tattoo removal offers is seeing how it can help heal sensitive memories from the past, while also providing clients with a second chance to make a first impression. We are very passionate about what we do, and we have witnessed first-hand how important tattoo removal is to the people we treat on a daily basis.

“In all my years practicing tattoo removal, I have always felt very privileged and honored to help my clients obtain a clean slate and begin a fresh start; whether it is removing a tattoo or helping my students run successful practices”

“My goal and mission is to provide the most advanced, informative, and supportive training available. I do this in order to aid my students in becoming the finest laser technicians in the world. I enjoy seeing my students achieve their goals, build confidence, and working in the industry that I am truly passionate about. I will never choose profits over my students nor will I compromise my reputation or mission. I am here to educate and build long-lasting relationships with everyone I get the great pleasure of teaching and working with...”​
