I consider myself a guide or a Heurist for those forward thinking leaders who want to stop coasting their businesses or even themselves. By breaking down the silos that separate people (talents and thoughts) and operations (management and actions) begins with these 3 verbs - Assess; Clarify; and Execute and works with these 3 key values - Strategic Thinking; Proven Processes & Tools; and Connectivity.
Also I believe we set young people up for failure as exemplified by the majority of college bound full time students take 6 years to earn a 4 year degree ($100,000 negative impact), I also work with parents to develop the skills their children will need for college and career success in today's 21st century global economy.
Since being a young child (more years ago than I care to admit)I am an avid reader in various genres. This love for reading continues today as my reading pile never seems to grow smaller only bigger.
As my first double major was journalism and philosophy, that excitement has translated into writing over 3,000 articles, an online business column, a book Be the Red Jacket along with establishing incredible relationships through respectful dialogue.
My personal motto, Change Your Words; Improve Your Results, is based upon these words of Dr. Norman Vincent Peale - "Change Your Thoughts; Change Your World!"
