Hello, my friend:
I passionately believe each one of us are here on earth for a unique purpose: to shine our light, to lead others toward the best version of themselves, and make the world a better place. It is our individual responsibility to discover that unique purpose, grow our natural gifts, and acquire the knowledge and skills to influence as many lives as possible. I am a catalyst. I help purpose-driven people like you polish your unique gifts and connect with your life experiences to empower you to BE influential.
I am on exactly the same path. I know I’m on this earth, at this time, and in this place for a definite purpose. My mission is to bless and inspire the lives of millions by sharing my light. I fully recognize my natural talents and gifts. I work hard and play hard everyday to magnify my gifts. I seek additional wisdom, knowledge and skills from the best leaders, mentors, coaches, influencers, friends and strangers daily. I am committed to constant and never-ending improvement to BE the best ME and make the road smoother for those who follow.
Allow me to share a snapshot of my background to paint the picture of who I am and how I may be able to help you on your heroes journey:
I am the youngest of three children and grew up in the Salt Lake Valley of Utah.
At the age of thirteen, I became an award-winning comedic entertainer and have performed for thousands of international audiences over the now forty years.
At the age of seventeen, I began as a broadcaster as a news reporter for an ABC Affiliate Talk Radio station. Over time, I worked as a newscaster and talk show host in the United States and Ireland. I have shared time with and interviewed a past President of the United States and Ireland, governors, senators, congressman, business leaders, authors, speakers, and community leaders. Just as important, I have shared experiences with countless people you have never heard of and may never meet.
In my early twenties I teamed up with nationally recognized speaker and business coach, Brian Tracy. I facilitated the programs “The Psychology of Achievement,” “The Psychology of Selling,” and many others to public audiences and corporations nationally. Over time, I created my own content and have spoken to, trained, and coached thousands of individuals and hundreds of companies from 18 countries.
In my mid-thirties I returned to broadcasting and media in sales, leadership, and talent development. I managed the sales operations of an independent television station. I worked in business development for an ABC Affiliate television station. I worked for Comcast NBC Universal for thirteen years. For six years I facilitated learning experiences for thousands of executives, managers, sales professionals and support teams throughout the United States. I co-created the Leadership Academy where I facilitated a powerful year-long virtual and live learning experience for 150+ local sales, sports, automotive, and interactive managers. Perhaps my favorite role was when I relocated to Chicago and co-created the Coaching Academy. We hired and developed an elite team of coaches to “Grow Revenue By Growing People.” We built the program on the foundation of the Co-Active Coaching Model from the Coaches Training Institute. Along with my team, I became a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach. I went through the grueling year-long certification process traveling to multiple locations in the United States and Canada. I personally coached the finest executives, managers and producers in the organization. In addition to thousands of hours of one-one-one coaching, I observed hundreds of meetings and sales calls to customize our processes. The systems we created generated tens of millions of dollars in revenue and saved millions of dollars in expenses.
In late 2019, I left Comcast NBC Universal to BE a freelance coach, broadcaster, and inspirational speaker. These few paragraphs aren’t even the tip of the iceberg of WHO I AM. They only share a few of my personal and professional experiences to give you some perspective.
Of all of my roles in life, non is more important to me than “dad.” My two children, Megan and Ben, are my constant inspiration to BE a better ME.
I invite you to get to know me better. I’m transparent and vulnerable in my posts, vidoes, and podcasts:
