More recently, Ron has advanced a global movement to feed the hungry (through partnership with No Hungry Children), provide access to clean water to those in need (through partnership with Charity:Water), and support individuals suffering from mental health challenges through various initiatives designed to help people transcend from scarcity, isolation and loneliness to abundance by living out their full potential. Ron’s goal is to build the ultimate human experience that allows people to find and live their purpose and live abundantly every day.

Ron and Jeanie reside in Omaha and have three wonderful children and three grandchildren. He enjoys spending time with his family, hiking, aviation, hosting retreats for personal development and growth, and cheering on the Nebraska Cornhuskers. His journey of finding freedom in his own personal life has ignited a profound mission to help others find their freedom.
