In all of human history there has never been a better time to be alive. Advancements in science and technology has put at our very fingertips all that we can imagine, every opportunity that we could ever hope for. People today are more educated, more passionate and wealthier than they have been in all other decades combined. Yet we are empty inside. It seems the harder we try to achieve nirvana, the further we fall behind. Suicide rates are up in almost all categories, stress, anxiety and depression are at an all-time high and relief is nowhere in sight. In short, while we are successful, we are not happy. Success without fulfillment is the pure definition of failure.  Happiness can only come through living a life of meaning and purpose.

Curiosity – I believe that a life well lived is learning in and of itself and requires an open mind to achieve it.  To be curious is to lead a life of creativity, wisdom and optimism.

  • Creativity: I inspire creativity in self and others. I believe that ordinary teams with a passion to find innovative solutions, can achieve extraordinary things through respect for diversity and an ability to capitalize on our collective experiences.

  • Wisdom: I search out continuous learning and self-improvement opportunities. I believe that wisdom is achieved through never ending personal development and an open mind to every life experience. I have a passion to Coach, Teach, Mentor and Help others and in so doing I grow and learn myself.

  • Optimism: I believe that anything is possible. That dreaming big, believing in yourself and committing to do the work will result in unimagined success. I believe that with planning, courage to take risk, perseverance, and discipline that anything is possible.

  • Courage – I believe all things are possible by simply getting out of your own way. To be courageous is to lead a life of virtue and diligence.
    • Virtue: I am trustworthy and keep all relationships honest. I behave with decency, avoid cynicism and do not use others. I am selfless and do good deeds for others. I do what I say I will do. I live with integrity at all costs.
    • Diligence: I pursue excellence in all its forms. I am engaged and work hard at all that I do. I believe that if you’re not making mistakes along the way, you’re not trying hard enough. I believe that accountability for results builds confidence confirms that what we do matters.
  • Compassion – I believe that we have a responsibility to each other. To be compassionate is to lead a life committed to servant leadership, community and brotherly love.
    • Servant Leadership: I have high moral character, quality of actions and integrity of intent. I have the confidence to stand alone, the courage to make tough decisions and the compassion to listen to the needs of others. I believe that each of us has a unique and God given purpose to serve others.
    • Community: I am in business to make a profit to provide for my family, my clients and my community. I believe that offering a “hand up” always gives more back than a “hand out”. I am inspired by those I help, and they are inspired by me.
    • Brotherly Love: I am a true friend. I have your back. I intervene when you lose your way. I help those in need.
