World Class Consulting
Pricing and Commitment from ABD's Founder:
My name is Austin and I have traveled and been a writer for decades, making hundreds of trips to six continents, 15 nations, and 45 states. I have a Master's degree and have completed my dissertation toward my PhD. I have taught hundreds of formal classes about dozens of subjects to tens of thousands of military personnel and federal agents. I have taught sex and relationship fundamentals to hundreds of women. My hobbies include running the toughest obstacle courses and ultra-marathons on the planet. I guarantee I can work with you to improve your life. As long as you are committed to focusing, learning, and making lifestyle changes, I can help you.
Hourly rate: USD 500/hour
Recommended sessions: 15
Recommended session length: 1.5 hours
For in-person sessions, airfare & lodging may be added.
I do not enter into contractual relationships; schedules, session numbers, and telecommuting vs. in-person are all flexible. For long-term life-coaching, the hourly rate can be adjusted. And, yes, I will go anywhere on Earth.
If you are interested in having your females better educated, or if you are a female seeking an excellent kajira education, we also offer kajirae training and kajirae trainer training including but not limited to the following subjects:
- acceptable forms of communication (such as stretching slowly and alertly as a request to touch the toes before kissing them, placing the side of the head on her master's foot or boot, how to request permission to ask a question or otherwise speak)
- arousal techniques; playful gestures and other motions, facial expressions, hair tossing, teasing types and durations, kegeling, splaying, arching, etc.
- attractive hair lengths and styling
- attractive dancing (dozens of dances in numerous styles)
- attractive ways to kiss and be kissed (dozens), and to hug and walk; gait
- best places to find attractive girls, and best methods for monitoring, isolating, herding, acquiring, sedating, reviving, inspecting, indoctrinating, and documenting them for the Voyages of Acquisition and so forth
- body hardening for warriors vs. body hardening for slave girls; warriors spar, while kajirae are slapped, stung with miniature ball bearings in leather straps, and whipped, etc. (and both warriors and kajirae receive ample exposure to nature and the elements)
- competing for the position of First Girl on the Chain; sportsmanship amongst kajirae which preserves all of their health and beauty
- discipline of a kajira; escalation of force, non-corporal punishments such as diet fluctuations, liberty restrictions, exclusion, and re-kenneling
- discipline of self; emotional self-control, and proportional dacryphilia
- entrances (105 ways for a girl to correctly enter a room)
- erogenous zones and how to properly gauge and stimulate them (such as by the Slaver's Caress (noun): a method of touching, without warning, a slavegirl who is being sold in order to exhibit her slave heat for potential buyers; also known as the Whip Caress, as it is commonly done using a coiled whip)
- etiquette; manners specific to certain castes of society (such as hand-washing masters' and guests' feet in the foyer upon entry); countenance, greeting different ranks and titles (such as how to correctly request a master to select you for sampling, usage, or acquisition), different attire for different occasions, table settings, etc.
- etiquette in the bedchambers; bed base collar rings, design elements, soothing lighting, subtle incense application, etc.
- girl kennels; importance, positive and critical psychological effects, cleaning, maintenance, rotating the girls
- health benefits of slavery; stronger feet, sharper senses, moderate exposure to direct sunlight, maintaining stamina and metabolism, the thrill of barefeet on different terrains and indoor textures, mental focus from total vulnerability, more specific sense of purpose, belonging, and direction, etc.
- hygiene; the types of baths and how to prepare and take them (cleaning first, then removing loose cells, then soaking, then oiling, then toweling, etc.)
- how to wear slave girl attire (quick-release cords, form accentuating methods, tasteful little tears, no piercings or cosmetics, staying barefoot and short, etc.)
- manners; politeness (averting eyes, heeling, always being ready and eager for sex and any commands, etc.) as well as the manner (ideal method and sequence) in which things are to be completed; prioritizing based on the master's preferences
- methods for keeping your girls vital; taking them to watch major sports games and races, days for adding a coin box to their rope belt, etc.
- poses (including how to gracefully kneel and rise while balancing a tray)
- posture; the positions of attention modified for kajirae from prone to sitting, kneeling, and standing
- proper heeling; dispersion, angle, noise discipline, matching the master's pace, etc.
- psychology of proper slaves (the joy of being desired, hunted, captured, collared, trained, branded, useful, trusted, intimate, mastered by a true man, and even whipped), Goreans (why females always carry loads, open doors, do the chores; cooking and cleaning, etc.), and the dom-sub culture (why equality is unhealthy, unnatural, and not present throughout the Universe)
- release enhancing techniques
- slave law; no property, no accosting, branding standard (at least one for the kajira symbol but no more than four; second is the house sigil, third is for a moderate punishment, and the fourth for a major punishment), severe punishments (such as the girl box rules), etc.
- subtle arousing movements while seated; virtually imperceptible shifting perceived subconsciously
- time management; such as timing different dishes so that meal components are ready at the same time, and timing laundry and other chores so multi-tasking often or always occurs, thus saving time and freeing it up for other things
- waitressing by kajirae; etiquette for serving masters, not just basic males or people in general (such as when to kiss goblets, which order to place dishes from tray to table, etc.)

Upon taking the 3-hour military entrance exam; the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB), I completed it in 15 minutes and scored 1 point below perfect, qualifying me for every job in the armed forces. My General Technical (GT) score was 132 out of a possible 140 at the time (also due to getting bored with the test, not to misunderstanding a few of its questions). This meant I could have been a pilot, a weatherman, a lawyer, intel', special operations in any branch, or psy-ops. I insisted on Combat Arms, Infantry to be precise, with training toward Reconnaissance, and a long-term goal of joining Force Recon (a more elite inner-circle subset of Marine Reconnaissance) and eventually MARSOC.

Travel and Relocation Options
I am willing to travel up to 50% of the time, and I am willing to relocate to any of the following:
- New Zealand
I am familiar with the different styles of:
- Memorization / Learning
I am aware of the different Personality Types of the Myers Briggs Test for team building.
I have some training in:
- Forklift and ‘Picker’ Operation
- Horseback Riding
- Piloting (small, fixed-wing aircraft)
Operating Anything: I am very comfortable driving all types of motor vehicles in all weather conditions, and am happy to take courses to become a professional operator of anything from motorcycles, ATVs, snowmobiles, and 18-wheelers to sailboats, speedboats, yachts, and any aircraft. You name it, I am interested, exceptionally dexterous, and will clear out my schedule to make it happen on your time table.
Beautifying Properties: My landscaping experience includes volunteer work spanning multiple months on a local farm, getting hands-on experience by removing large plants, trimming hedges, digging post holes, putting in a new fence, applying grass seed for several lawns, planting crops, and transporting and planting many types of seedlings and trees, as well as making measurements across many acres for their ideal spacing. I have also researched the most colorful and fragrant plants from around the world, and prepared a commercial farm layout based on which combinations grow well together. I have completed hundreds of combat missions in temperatures ranging from subzero to 130+ °F (~ -20 to 55 °C) while wearing a combat load (dozens of pounds of armor, weapons, and optics), so I am easily capable of working overtime in any weather on any project in any environment. What's more, I love being outdoors and exerting myself like that.
Fitness Level: I have completed marathons such as the Bridger Ridge Run, and multiple Spartan obstacle course races, and have recently started training for ultra-marathon distances. To date, my maximum number of pulll-ups completed in one day is 260, sit-ups: 10,000, and I am learning how to perform muscle-ups.
Socializing and Networking: I have dined and discoursed at major fund raiser events and RCOH completion celebrations (refitting aircraft carriers for upcoming floats) with CEOs, Admirals, Generals, politicians, et cetera. I am comfortable meeting and planning with the highest echelon. I have also met with members of multiple Native American tribes, and have started completing fasting and vision quests on reservations in order to become more familiar with the indigenous cultures of North America. If travel is required for work, I have a growing network of friends across dozens of states and countries around the world, and am comfortable 'couch-surfing' to keep costs to a minimum. I am also confident I can learn any language and dialect within three months of arrival, and have learned basic words and phrases for some nations during my first flight over to them.
Management to the Executive Level: I am qualified to manage a small business if the situation calls for me to take on more responsibilities, either temporarily or indefinitely, as part of your company. I am comfortable rising to the roles of CISO, COO, or CEO within a matter of just a few years.
I have extensive management experience ever since high school;
- As a cadet, I was entrusted with administrative duties for hundreds of other students at multiple junior high and senior high schools. I also led groups such as the R.O.T.C. fitness team, ensuring that everyone was on track to stay in peak physical shape for frequent competitions up to the state level.
- In the military, I was the leader of both my recruit and A-school training groups. As a platoon guide, I was the intermediary between 80 trainees and five instructors, hosting daily meetings with squad and fire-team leaders, and staying up late to re-inspect all of their packs before long hikes and other major training evolutions. During the final six months of my active duty enlistment, I was both an instructor who taught more than 360 classes about dozens of subjects to more than 33,000 U.S. Marines, and an instructor of other incoming instructors, helping to prepare lesson plans for groups ranging in size from a dozen Marines to more than 300, some of our classes being televised.
- After I returned to civilian life, I joined the Army Corps of Engineers as a scheduler (and project manager in training). During this time, my team and I handled hundreds of complex major engineering and preservation projects on the state and national levels, some of the schedules of which included several thousand tasks with various relationships and frequent budget adjustment needs. We worked on our own some of the time, and in tandem with thousands of other engineers at others, sometimes also having them meet with us so we could facilitate their training to use our various software suites.
- I have also taken professional courses in and related to management as part of my degree plan which has groomed me for leadership roles now that I have my Master's degree.
I have experience with customer service, as well;
I prefer a hands-on approach, and either field work or administrative duties, such as those of C-level executives, delegating P.R. to fellow teammates from time to time, but am well versed in customer service, and highly confident when talking and working with anyone.
- I have worked in customer service for a major telecommunications corporation, during which time I worked late shifts and handled thousands of calls and e-mails from customers with a vast variety of products, often working with them in real-time to troubleshoot and resolve problems and concerns ranging from hardware, software, billing, and network outages.
- I have also worked for several individual and chain restaurants, as well as a major grocery store, since junior high, interacting with never-ending lines of customers at buffet and check-out lanes.
- As the Corporal of the Guard for multiple barracks, I handled many tours along with frequent daily phone calls from everyone ranging from family members to Generals and Admirals, so my phone etiquette is very polished. Due to my years of deployment time and outdoor instructing, my field radio etiquette is also very polished.
- I have an excellent record interacting with locals halfway around the world, and from all backgrounds and belief systems, including when there were cultural and language barriers, and even under the pressures of combat environments I always treated all locals, including people being detained or arrested, with respect and a genuine desire to get to know them and hear their side of the story.
I am highly goal oriented;
- I have prepared detailed, day by day, and exercise by exercise fitness regimen and dietary fine-tuning schedules with clearly defined milestones and motivation points for many dozens of friends, family members, and coworkers over the years.
- I have prepared my own ramp-up schedules for the marathons, long-distance bicycle rides, and ultra-marathons I have been interested in.
- I have helped complete major projects, such as writing multi-novel sagas and building complex websites.
- I have also drafted multiple variants of long-term travel plans for later in life, including a sight-seeing trip to Antarctica during a narrow window of time when the temperature is mild and the travel options become much more abundant.
Candor: As for being honest, I grew up in para-military and military training programs, as well as strict academic environments, in which integrity and being forthright were not only paramount but absolutely required and expected as the baseline. I have required that same level of logic and respect out of the recruits I trained, the teammates I worked with around the world, and the people in my inner circle, and have made sure to remain transparent and helpful in all my relationships, business and personal.
Environmentally Conscientious: With regard to my care for animals, let me put it this way: I have stayed up late into the night with some of my dogs when I noticed they seemed to be having nightmares, allowing them to sleep in my lap so they felt safe, calmed down, and got better rest. I have worked at the S.P.C.A. as a volunteer during my own Summer time, and fostered several dogs. I also dream of having my own sled team someday if I ever move anywhere colder than here, and have even sketched out a few layout ideas for my own zoo-like animal rehabilitation center. I have also always been deeply concerned about the environment, and have never once looked down on animals as lesser beings. Yes, I love animals, so let me know if you need a dog-sitter when I am off the clock.
If required, I can provide an extensive list of character references spanning multiple decades.
If you have any other questions, I am happy to answer them all.
Thank you for your time and this opportunity to work with you!

Pay-scale Proportional to Background and Project:
My salary requirements reflect my extensive and global experience working with other managers, delegating duties, supervising large projects, and maintaining creative visions. Because most of my work has been at and above the levels of most management positions, and during the highest-stress situations (such as in theaters of war), and because my medical/nutritional awareness is above the baseline of much of Western medicine, my salary will be slightly more than that of: Business Operations Managers, Court Reporters (Stenographers), Elevator Installers/Repairers, Family/General Practitioners/Physicians (who only treat commonplace injuries and illnesses), Financial Managers, Gaming Managers, General Operations Managers, Health Instructors, I.T. Managers, Makeup Artists, Marketing Managers, Mathematicians, Pharmacists, Pilots, Purchasing Managers, Sales Managers, Water Vessel Captains, and Private Military Contractors, just for several examples; those professions typically have salaries between $101,000 and $150,000 for seasoned professionals. (~$35-75/hour)
I will accept a year of freelance work for >$100,000 (for a year-long project).
However, if it is guaranteed repeat business, and on a regular basis (~every other day), I will accept >$400 per day for ~4-6 hours of my time.
I charge for discussion and brainstorming meetings by the hour; $100 if local, + travel expenses otherwise.
