But I need to tell you that I didn’t start off doing that. I spent 21 years working in the corporate world in a variety of capacities. I started off in manufacturing and moved on to field sales. I was responsible for corporate marketing and even running specific business units. I then began developing corporate strategies and creating businesses that marketed and sold technology into small and medium sized businesses. I was exposed to all kinds of businesses from manufacturing to high tech and to virtually every aspect of business. And at this point 16 years ago, I decided that I wanted to become a real entrepreneur and start my own business serving and helping other businesses grow. And then, through a series of events, my personal goals and my business purposes came into alignment. I realized that is what I wanted to do—what I was supposed to do—was to help businesses make a significant difference by transforming themselves. I began to help companies challenge the norms and the traditional ways of accomplishing their objectives. Part of that involved finding, learning and then applying and using the best high-growth tools available to help companies create a vision, develop concrete, measureable plans, and evaluate their progress so that they were ready for explosive and sustainable growth. That’s my passion, and that’s why I do what I do!
