Let's work together. I am a collaborator sitting in the junction of strategy and execution.

I am a speaker, coach, and mentor who will inspire and motivate you. I work with businesses and individuals across the county.

I am the author of two books: “Motivational Listener: Be Interesting by Being Interested. Practical Skills to Be Successful at Business Networking Events”,  and “Threnody: 19th Century Sensibility Proves People Have Not Changed”.

I created the Independent Planner. An analog calendar with a unique daily Goal Tracking system. This planner was created specifically for solo entrepreneurs, freelance professionals, and small business owners.

Call on My Experience

Prior to becoming a full-on entrepreneur, I worked in large and small companies in leadership roles which include CEO, COO, and General Manager. I have lived and breathed financial services, agriculture, and manufacturing. I am involved with joint ventures because I believe in the power of networking. I speak on being a Motivational Listener (business networking), Leadership, and Intentional Change. 

Business Networking is essential for business and careers – but what do you actually do at events? How do you connect with a stranger? I teach my science-based method to quickly and confidently build a network of advocates. Check out my online courses, and books.

My wife, Christine, and I will be celebrating our 37th wedding anniversary in 2021. We have three children. You may see my bass or guitars on a video call. I love to play music as often as I can.

This is a private group focused on business networking education.
