Where are you from?
Never Split the Difference by Chris Voss
If I had to eat one thing for the rest of my life, what would it be?
Meat and 3 (1 meat and 3 vegetables)
What did you do before this?
I have had the blessing of working for small business owners, from sales to recruiting to client success to a director in a non-profit. I like to say that my practical business experience comes from living it out the past 19 years in the business world, learning from people like you. One of the small business owners once said, “Double-name, you need to be paying me for the education you are receiving by working for me, rather than your ‘big name’ university!” (Yes, he called me “double-name”.)
Experience you’ve had the lends itself to leadership coaching well?
Working for small business owners for 19 years
Being in leadership positions and feeling the highs and lows
Realizing it is more about surrounding yourself with good people than seeking perfection in the process; we go further and faster with good people.
Living life well with solid mentors to coach me through both the wins and losses
Why do you love being a Leadership Coach?
The small business owners and leaders are the ones who have the greatest impact on our culture and world. I have been someone who has been blessed by amazing leadership. There is nothing better than seeing our small business owners take the EntreLeadership principles, apply it in their lives, and begin seeing both themselves and their teams start winning. It is amazing to see the power of great leadership!
Favorite EntreLeadership event? Why?
The EL Summit is my favorite event. What a blessing to have world class speakers from Ramsey and from the business world coming together to share their wins and losses, so our small business owners can learn and grow!
