I just got off the phone from a 2-hour conversation with Carl Contino – WOW! The dynamic? Easy and smooth with many moments of laughter.
The richness and experience Carl offers? Twenty years plus! The insights that I’m integrating now? A WHOLE BOAT-LOAD!
My big AH-HA moment was realizing that I was not FEELING the value of my work. I could intellectualize the value and yet not feel it in the depths of my bones. By the end of the call, he led an exercise that allowed me to FEEL my value.
Now, I’m more excited than ever to create. To create from a place of value.

I'm an artist (musician, creative) struggling with earning a living...can I benefit from what you offer?
Absolutely! The program is designed with creatives of all stripes in mind. Living gig-to-gig, project-to-project is a tough way to do things, yet the most common way of getting your creations out into the world and making a living.
There are other ways that can utterly change the game at play, including creating community-based membership experiences with a common passion or vision (like this one!). It’s a game changer for sure. We can show you the steps.
I'm not sure what my passion is and how to figure out what it is...
Absolutely no worries! That’s one of the things we love to do … point the way to discovering what that is for you and turning it into something amazing.
I'm already pursuing my passion but am struggling and not sure what to do next...
Part of the entrepreneurial journey is learning how to deal with things like uncertainty, disappointing results, unexpected challenges, and a slew of other things that can hinder the realization of what you’re after.
It’s normal and part of the game.
The key is to find ways to re-invigorate your passion and why you’re doing this in the first place and then to do the next thing in front of you.
Part of the process is reaching out and getting help from others.
We can help you navigate the uncertain waters of your adventure. That’s what this is all about.
I'm living my passion to the fullest and want to get to the next level...
Part of the thrill of pursuing your passion is that it is an ever-expanding entity that never ends.
We can absolutely help you up-level what you’re up to by helping you get clear on what’s possible, squash any limiting thoughts or assumptions that may be in the way, and how to leverage what you have to create massive impact.
Can what you offer help me develop my talents?
America’s Got Talent is the world’s biggest showcase for the vast array of talents, passions, and interests that exist.
If your everything is all about fully developing your talent, what we offer here is a unique and powerful approach to help you move toward mastery in what you love and are here to do!
Is this something that kids & young adults can benefit from?
Absolutely! I’ve run a program for several years called Untapped Genius for Young Minds where it’s all about helping them get clear on their passion and turning it into something productive. It’s also about creating an empowering mindset to deal with the challenges of life and creating a life they love!
Joining Untapped Genius will help them tap into the power of community and get all the support and encouragement they could ever need to spark life into what they are here to do!
They are literally our future. We need them and their built-in potential, passion, and energy unleashed into the world like never before.
You mentioned a wide variety of topics we'll be exploring...
Yes. Our live meetings, courses, and discussion topics will explore a vast array of topics that come into play on the entrepreneurial path.
And at the same time, we want to be sensitive to the potential of being overwhelmed with all that can be covered, so don’t worry, in the spirit of discovery, we’ll keep it simple, to the point, and have FUN with it all so that you can enjoy the entrepreneurial ride, bumps and all!
What's this Life as a Wave approach you've come up with?
Ah yes! This is my everything that I’ve dedicated my entire life to developing and sharing with others.
It is unlike anything I’ve seen out there, all great stuff but after more than 300 books, courses, and seminars on different topics, approaches, philosophies … in the end, I was still stuck.
So I wiped the slate clean and began at the beginning of what is this thing called life and what does it want? And from this 1 question emerged the most profound, simple, elegant framework that would finally help unleash my inner amazing!
And the idea of sharing with others who struggle as well with getting their thing fully happening is beyond thrilling and is the juice of the what and why of what I do!
Why are you doing this?
Discovering what you actually have within you, living your passion for real – these are the things that envelope my every day moments … it’s my everything!
So the thought of being in a position to share what I’ve discovered as a fellow-traveler of one’s pursuits, I can’t imagine a more exciting thing to devote my life to and share with the world!
it's not the first time I've taken a course or joined something like this... how's this different?
Me too! The number of attempts to get it all happening is astounding – the myriad courses, workshops, memberships, and business-building trainings I’ve been part of (and honestly enjoyed), in the end, didn’t produce the results I was looking for.
So how’s this going to be different, the thing that actually produces results?
While I can’t promise results in your case, since I don’t know who you are and what you’re ready to do to allow it to happen, what I CAN say is that we are providing everything you could ever need to increase the chance to near certainty of it happening for you, with the caveat that you give it your everything! Like as if it’s a done deal.
The idea of connecting with a community sounds great, but can I get 1-1 help too?
The power of community and the synergy that happens when you bring hearts, souls, and minds together with an overall common vision goes beyond anything that one single individual can muster.
At the same time, when you bring together community and 1-to-1 help, you’ve got an extra powerful combination.
So yes! To address your particular mission at play, if you are open to signing up for the Gold VIP membership while there are spots available (20 max), you’ll get private coaching with me twice a month for an incredible discount. You can also message me to explore other options for personalized assistance.
What's HOT SEAT coaching?
It is a surprisingly powerful way to be supported, whether you raise your hand for impromptu coaching during one of our calls or you simply listen and take in what another is being coached on (things that you may very well be facing yourself!).
It has to be experienced to know what this truly means!
Do I have to be there for every live virtual meeting?
Absolutely not! We all have different schedules, time zones, and availability, so you can show up when you want and for however long you can. All sessions will be recorded and available within your member’s page. But don’t be surprised if some go on for hours … if people are showing up, and we’re having fun and getting things done, we’ll keep going ’til we drop!
I'm not looking for a guru or a bunch of hype promising the world...
Oh boy do I get it! I have to admit I’ve fallen prey to the guru with the magic formula that, in the end, was a bunch of hooey or over-simplified crap that works for only the rare few!
So … is Untapped Genius and my approach, Life as a Wave, any different from what’s already out there?
You bet! And in so many ways … primarily by providing tangible, measurable, and reliable principles to getting things moving that are based in physics … that you can feel and touch in the moment.
And then grounding everything with tangible actions leading to real results.
What kind of things are we going to be doing?
That’s the fun of it all! The spirit of what the adventure entails is infused with knowledge, experience, insight, and hard-core tangible results along the way….
The possibilities of what we’ll be doing together is limited only by one’s imagination.
I'm Carl. And I know what it can be like...
After decades and hundreds of hours dedicated to my passions and getting blocked every step of the way, I ended up developing a new approach to freeing the mind based on my experience as an engineer and musician. It has worked wonders to break through my lifelong blocks and open the door for me to live my fullest life.
My own struggles began in my early teens, driven primarily by stubborn cognitive issues like ADD and dyslexia (story in detail below) and dealing with health challenges like when I ended up in a wheelchair with 8 broken ribs and a shattered hip.
I tried everything in my power to overcome in spite of it all – reading over 300 books, taking countless seminars, and so much more, only to remain stuck and frustrated.
The beautiful twist is that at my darkest hour, I discovered a breakthrough…
My #1 struggle, its devastating impact, and how it lead to what you see before you...
I’ve described it in many ways
ADD, Dyslexia, poor memory, lack of focus, fuzzy thinking, feeling out of it, stuttering, stammering, glitching out, and on and on.
But that wasn’t the worst of it.
I call it my “flow glitch,” a Tourette’s-Syndrome-like flinch in my muscles that had a devastating impact on my #1 passion for decades – the dream of performing as a Jazz-Rock guitarist on the world’s stages. I attended three different music academies and practiced day and night. But for some reason, I would make a hundred tiny mistakes – the simpler the song, the more mistakes. The harder I tried, the worse I’d play. Talk about a conundrum to say the least!
It affected every facet of my life:
- Feeling awkward and anxious when socializing, especially in groups, always 1 or 2 beats behind everyone else.
- Dancing and feeling stiff and self-conscious.
- Singing off-key and not remembering lyrics.
- Going blank with paralyzing stage fright when about to perform on any level.
Put it all together, and I couldn’t help but believe there was something seriously wrong with me and that I was different than anyone else.
I tried everything in my power to fix things – reading hundreds of books, taking seminars, trying Nootropics (brain supplements), seeing doctors, therapists – nothing changed.
So, I ended up “turning down the volume” and basically hid in my cave. For years.
And during this time, I experienced the costs of a muted life – addictions, hitting bottom, hopelessness, what it is to be without home, to contemplate and act on ending it all.
I know sweet victories in spite of it all and feel more alive and excited than ever, because…
I fixed it! I solved the problem by wiping the slate clean and starting over… beginning with a simple question…
“What does life itself want”? My answer:
Life wants ONE thing – to move, grow, and expand, and EVERYTHING comes from this singular thrust of life! This simple idea would change everything.
With MOVEMENT as the central theme, I added principles of music, nature, and simple physics I had learned in electrical engineering, and voila, the “holy grail” of all personal growth approaches that freed me of my cognitive glitches and also opened the doors to higher abilities, creativity, and flow that we ALL CAN ACCESS.
I call my approach Life as a Wave.™
And it’s based on a fundamentally SIMPLE game at play: I am either being a “conduit” for the movement OR I’m getting in the way of it! Period. End of story.
The #1 culprit to moving forward in our lives is what I call the Slippery Mind which is the part that judges, labels, and creates “stories” that in the end, blocks the movement.
Free up the mind, and movement happens. It’s physics.
The most incredible thing about making it all about movement … is that I can get real-time feedback using things based on rhythm like my #1 teacher …
My drum!! If you know what to look for, drumming and other activities can show you second-by-second if you’re “being the conduit” or not … in ANY area of your life!
20 years later…
Living “life as a wave,” I now know “heaven on earth.”
Applying Life as a Wave to every area of my life, I can now:
- Sing on key, harmonize, and improvise in the moment with songs I’ve never heard before!
- Dance in flow, my body surprising me at what it can express.
- Play tennis better than when I trained daily as a teenager.
- Talk with flow and ease under nearly any condition (including doing over 1,200 days in a row of Facebook LIVES … something once beyond impossible and now effortless).
- Connect with others – social anxiety and self-consciousness now replaced with comfort and ease.
- Feel the true ecstasy of witnessing what I’m truly capable of, like expressing myself freely in so many ways.
- Enjoy the thrill of seeing my ideas and life’s work come to full fruition (what is before you now!) and impacting the world.
- Having more passion and sense of purpose than ever.
And best of all, I can now help others free themselves from what gets in the way from doing their thing to the fullest…
