My Passion: To Inspire You!
The creation of my company in 2014 was not the result of me leading a ‘storybook’ career. Rather, like you, I have stumbled and I have made mistakes. At every level of my career, from the first time I managed people… to running a global services organization for a Fortune 500 company… to being the CEO of two family owned software companies for over ten years… and most recently as CEO of my own startup company. Early on I realized the blessings of not just my successes, but of the challenging times too. Looking back, I applied principles that helped me achieve my potential, inspire others and make a lasting impact on the lives of many people.
Have you considered a business coach for yourself? Someone that has walked in your shoes as a CEO. I have recently published a book called The Growth Cube that I think you will love! I am so excited to share my stories and my best ideas with you! It’s about how to unlock the growth potential of your company – and you as a leader! It is my greatest wish that you will be inspired to apply my lessons to your career and life and enjoy even greater success. You can find my book on Amazon. And check out easy and low-cost ways to get started with me and work together as your business coach – to get you to the next level of success!
