Making Dreams Come Alive:
For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved helping people. Personally and in business this passion is the same. I love to witness the success of others and much more even to play some part in helping others accomplish their dreams.
I’m a refiner. Throughout my career I’ve worked many positions from front line cashier to regional and VP/SVP positions responsible for over $100 million dollars and more than 1000 people around the country. I’ve studied every aspect of business, seeking to understand not only the what, but the why of it.
This 25 year pursuit of knowledge now allows me to share the critical lessons I've learned with others. One of the business 'gifts' I'm most thankful for is synthesis. Over time I've developed an uncanny ability to observe several methods of doing something, pull a piece from each, then work with my team to create a new idea or process which improves upon the others. This has been a key component in creating immense value for others, helping drive their businesses forward.
The strongest leaders I’ve worked with ask many questions and share great vision. I strive to do the same. As we uncover clients’ needs and goals, I look to share a clear, attainable, and exciting path of progress to accomplish those dreams. Dreams can come true.
As Leaders Must Lead was born, I was confident I could help nearly anyone, but I knew I needed to find my niche. As time time passed, I recognized the huge unmet need that Creatives and many small businesses have for coaching and training in the very areas I've studied for many years: leadership, sales, time management, business acumen, and more. This was my ‘light bulb’ moment.
Since that realization, helping these people-musicians, artists, chefs, landscapers, photographers, entrepreneurs, etc.- has been my focus. I'm proud to say the results have been phenomenal.
Connecting with creatives and small business owners has been tremendously rewarding. We've been able to help establish and dramatically grow businesses, save massive amounts of time, build profits, and more.
Our clients readily share these exciting wins and I couldn’t be more proud of their progress. I’m excited to witness many more as we move forward!
