After starting a business from nothing, growing it into a multi-million dollar revenue over a 16-year period, and selling it, I now coach other business owners on how to create amazing businesses and fulfilling lives. Before you consider hiring me; I want you to know my WHY.
I started out on my own after working for a Fortune 100 company in 1997. I thought I knew it all. I was a brilliant engineer; I had analytical skills to spare; and I had developed amazing sales skills. It was just myself to start, then I grew to a small office of five; and eventually grew my business to over $10 Million in annual revenue with 30-employees. My business was a design/build construction company that retrofitted existing commercial buildings to make them more energy efficient. In 2012, I decided to sell my company to an east-coast company who wanted to gain some traction in the Rocky Mountains region. I was to stay on as a VP of the Rocky Mountain Region after the sale. After six months as VP, I was diagnosed with a failing mitral valve in my heart. When the doctor informed me I would be able to take 6-weeks off of work, I was overjoyed.
After this event, I reflected on my past; and wondered, “Why was I so unhappy at work? Did I really like what I did?” In the Spring of the following year, I resigned a great job with a great boss; and decided to consult with other small business owners. But, I needed to know why I was so miserable after so many successful years in business.
While I was quite successful with the mechanics of starting and growing my business, I was failing in my ability to balance my life; empower my employees; and energize my business. I have learned a lot since I left that industry in 2014; and I now share my knowledge with other business owners.
Regardless of whether you hire me as your business coach, I’d love to stay in touch. You can sign up to the right and get a few freebies. You will not get a bunch of SPAM, if you sign up. I will email you weekly blog post notices; and you can unsubscribe any time you want. I also send out notifications of new product that I’m offering business owners.
