What We Do

1Life gives individuals, families, and organizations a personal ROADMAP to living a fulfilled life.  We focus on giving practical tools and training in the 1Life Core4: vision planning, finances, relationships, and wellness.


We are empowering people to go from surviving to thriving so they can help others do the same.

Our Vision

Armed with a ROADMAP that connects passion, purpose and direction in their lives, people will care about living their best lives and help others do the same.

Vision Planning

What are your sprint and marathon plans?


How much money is coming in and how well do you monitor what is going out? How do you invest the rest wisely?


How’s your relationship with yourself? Who’s in your inner-circle? Who are your mentors?


Are you taking care of and developing your mind, body and spirit?

Tim Rhode



The visionary and driving force behind the scenes is Tim Rhode. Tim comes from a very humble background, growing up in a blue collar family in a blue collar town. His family’s tight financial situation left an indelible mark on Tim, and although he barely graduated high school and never attended college, Tim went on to dream, plan, and create his own “magnificent life.” Having gotten off to a very slow start in life inspired Tim to help others find their own paths. He is totally committed to helping people of all ages plan their best future, as well as helping transform the “life education” of young people. Tim’s passions include his family, fitness, skiing, hiking, and mountain biking.

Brian Rocha


Program Director 

Brian Rocha loves life. Brian’s passion in business, family and personal growth is unparalleled while juggling his active lifestyle. Having always lived a fast-paced life since a very young age, Brian quickly gained many of the life skills needed to help guide him in eventually supporting himself through college. Brian attended the University of California, Santa Barbara while becoming partners in a restaurant and led the expansion efforts of opening their second restaurant location in downtown Santa Barbara. Since leaving the restaurant operations in 2010, Brian has spent the majority of the last decade traveling around the world while working remotely. From living in Portugal, to living in Rio de Janeiro, to traveling east around the world on a humanitarian trip supporting Rotary International, Brian has learned to leverage his passion for travel in doing good around the world. Brian is excited to currently be working on a c-store development project in Los Banos, California while also serving as a member of the Los Banos Rotary Club.

brotha James _ Jeremy Resig


1Life Dare2Dream Program

"There were times throughout my school experience that led me to making fun of other kids just to fit in. I misbehaved purely out of boredom and had very little interest in doing any more than what I had to do which was not get a C ever! A’s and B’s were required. Bottom line is I was only operating at roughly 30% of my capacity while in school. I didn’t like to write, I hated to read and I was absolutely resistant to learning new information, skill sets or tricks that would help me move forward with my life. Now I’m 35 years old and have recognized that so many of the pains and struggles I currently am working through very much have to do with my middle school and high school experience.”


By bringing brotha James to your school, you can rest assured that your students will be exposed to gratitude, positivity and enlightenment. Through music and experience, brotha James will connect to your school’s philosophy in a way that has never been explained before. It’s amazing how sometimes all we need is to hear the information from a different source for it to sink in.
