You Should Know About Me

Key Accomplishments

Addicted to "Yes"... that moment when everyone wins. Introductions and invitations change the world and are exceptionally valuable yes opportunities. Because of my addiction to "yes", you will find me reverse engineering yes moments with analytics tools such as HubSpot and Moz but it doesn't stop there. Creating a "Yes" where everyone wins and understanding how humans tick is the ultimate puzzle.

I've had the honor to lead thousands of employees, have a history of repeatedly doubling sales, a dozen sales growth & profit awards, business turn-arounds, and helped thousands of people move their business as they conquer the world and change the community.

Over the last five years, I have been privileged to speak to thousands at the Seattle University, Lakewood Chamber of Commerce, Ignite-U events, National Accountants Association, World Trade Center Seattle, Inbound Marketing Forums, Seattle Hubspot User Group events, World Trade Center Tacoma, Tacoma Chamber, Master Builders Association and many more.

If you asked me who I prefer to spend time with, you will hear "people and companies who build things". They change the world. Are you creating, producing or building something? Awesome!

How I like to work with people
As an Advisor

Not to take away from strategists who prefer to think, talk and get paid...
I believe that participation and contribution by also getting in the trenches is critical to creating success.

I consider each project: "How are you trying to conquer the world and change the community?"
