Don’t Be Overwhelmed

A few years ago I attended a sales training with professionals from my company and other companies within the industry. I was excited to network with people that did what I did and to learn new sales strategies along the way. Throughout the training sessions, I enjoyed interacting with the rest of the class, listening [...]

Be a Prepper

Now I'm not a "doomsday prepper" in the sense that I take all of my money out of banks, hide it in a cave, and live off the grid in a cabin in the mountains with no electricity. That's not me. But preparing for key moments in both life and business is essential. I have [...]

Podcast Review: How to Play an Infinite Game

I listened to a thought provoking interview in a podcast on my morning commute today. The Entreleadership Podcast put out a new episode where the host interviews best selling author, Simon Sinek, about his new book. Through Q & A Simon highlights some of the themes of his book, The Infinite Game, which is set [...]

Succeed Where You Are

During my first few years of post-college work, I was fortunate to have multiple opportunities to move up at my company in both position and pay in a short period. But as you take on more responsibilities, roles get more difficult and there may not be as many open positions for further promotions. Searching for [...]

Book Review: The Wright Brothers by David McCullough

The story of the Wright Brothers is fascinating. It's been a while since I listened to the book, but what stood out to me as the main theme was the constant pursuit to continuously learn. These brothers did not have PhDs. In fact, neither even had a college degree and Orville did not even finish [...]

Clarity is Key

I'm sure many have said a phrase similar, but I first heard the following phrase from Chris Hogan, one of the Ramsey personalities (Dave Ramsey that is). To be unclear is to be unkind. I love this phrase because it is so true. Have you ever had an assignment in school, or a task in [...]

Biz Profile: Ken Goodwillie of Divine Design

I’m fascinated by entrepreneurship. The process of someone creating a business out of nothing and using that business to support their family, or create more jobs, or produce a product that helps people in some way is an amazing thing. What better way is there to learn more about small businesses and startups than to [...]

Rest, Recharge, Relax, and Refresh

It is so important to spend pockets of time disconnected from work. Not only can these moments be enjoyable and memorable, but they can also help you return to work energized. Some may associate working unnecessarily long hours and never taking vacations as noble ventures that are the marks of a standout employee. But in [...]

Seek Veteran Wisdom

I'm usually on the younger side compared to my coworkers given that I'm still early in my career. Working with older and more experienced coworkers can be a huge blessing, as it gives you the opportunity to learn from them and ask them questions about their journey through life and work. I try to ask [...]

Book Review: Killing England

I have recently read three books from Bill O'Reilly's "Killing" series: Killing the SS, Killing Patton, and most recently Killing England. The books are well written and offer deep dives into periods of history and the lives of individuals during those times. In Killing England, there are multiple lessons that can be gleaned, but a [...]
