Matthew Finlin has been a business phenom since he started his career a decade ago. From door-to-door sales trainer to high level business in Hong Kong.

He's our fearless leader, and we're blessed to have him. A man of many talents, he started off as an entrepreneur and after a massive spiritual awakening, he answered the call. His life mission is to bridge the gaps between the business, scientific, and spiritual communities. Matthew's extensive experience in both business and personal development allows him to bring out the best in every individual, helping them achieve their full potential and make a difference in the world. He is dedicated to helping as many people as possible reach their fullest potential by empowering self-leadership. He now trains and coaches his teams and clients in his philosophy: the 5 Pillars of Human Potential.

The Academy

When you want to change your life, you can't just do it by yourself. You need a support system that will help you achieve your goals and be there for you when things get tough. Our coaches are here for that—and so much more!

They have a variety of specialities, so whether you're looking for help with business or want to improve your relationships, we've got the right coach for you.

H.P.A Mission

We are here to usher in a new cultural system within finance, education, healthcare, community and social structures that puts human lives and the quality of those lives first. We believe that the wisdom from science and spirituality exist on the same spectrum, and that they are speaking the same truth in different languages. Right now many people are abundant financially, but lacking in spiritual wealth, or vice versa. Through the bridging of science, spirituality, and finances we aim to birth a new system that builds off of the old system with gratitude and ambitious love.

Meet Bay! Impact, motivation and engagement are key to sparking the next generation of leaders. From her years of experience running her family's Kumon Centre, she knows the importance of developing strong leaders in younger generations.

Bay, she is no stranger to pain. She battled with debilitating gut and mental health issues that impeded her memory, impacted her ability to keep working and contributed to addiction patterns. The consequences were overwhelming, at times, to her family and herself. Bay’s journey shows that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to healing, but there are some common threads that all of us can tap into. She also offers an empowering message to those who think they don’t have the resources or support system to get better: you do.

Now, Bay splits her time between the Human Potential Academy and her own holistic health practice where she supports her clients as an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and BioScan MSA Certified Practitioner.

Selena is a natural leader, communicator and questioner of all things - approaching life through a lens of openness, critical thought and purpose. After being rear-ended in 3 car accidents in the same year, she became obsessed with holistic health and alternative medicine for healing the body, mind and soul.

She is a master of conquering her fears and making life happen for her. Leading with integrity in her lifelong search for wisdom, she inspires - those who are awakened by her roars - to seek their truth, and live their truth. With a natural aptitude for psychology and strategy, she aligns business owners with achieving their health and wealth as she calms the qualms of the heart and mind.
