How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I would be the perfect COO/CIO/CDO for a sales-oriented CEO who needs a co-founder to manage and mature business internals so they can continue to focus externally on sales, funding, and networking.

As an Advisor

I consult professionally with organizational leaders to take them to the next level.

Think Sam is awesome?
Vouch for them.

Jarod Brooks
They're my friends  •  Van Driver/Veterans Service Representative, U.S.VETS Initiative.
Sam is driven to succeed, while helping those around during him increase their chances for success.
Joseph Bradshaw
They're my friends  •  Dentist, Bradshaw Dental, LLC. Previously Dentist, Prescott, AZ. Arizona State grad.
I am Sam's friend, and what strikes me most about him are two qualities that I think would be very beneficial for an advisor. First, he has ... the ability to strategize, see things from different perspectives, or in other words, is a big-picture thinker. Second, he has an "us" mentality, which I find very refreshing. What I mean by an "us" attitude is that he has the ability to empathize with, and contribute meaningfully, to relationships he chooses to have. An advisor needs to be able to strategize and see through the advisee's eyes, helping them to achieve real results.
Glenn Heying
We worked together  •  Lead Technical Consultant, OpenText. Previously Livelink Developer, Capgemini.
Sam is sincere and hard working at all he does. He has a good vision for what it takes to be successful in business.
Daniel Friend
We worked together  •  Enterprise Content Management Specialist, ClearInfo. Previously Technical Support Engineer, Sprint.
Sam is forward thinking, and very analytical. He is very innovative in his approach to finding solutions to problems. He is an outstanding ... facilitator and collaborator, and always drives towards finding the best solution for the customer.
