FROM THE BLOG
I created this blog to share my blunt,
“think outside the box” approach to management, leadership, investing and work-life balance to help fuel the drive for growth and creative thinking.

"I learned to always take on things I'd never done before.
Growth and comfort do not coexist."
Executive Chairman, IBM
I attempt to emulate this quote that hangs in my office. “Risk more than others think is safe. Care more than others think is wise. Dream more than others think is practical. Expect more than others think is possible.” ~ Cadet Maxim
Good or bad this is how I live my life and not many can handle this way of thinking. I have heard from many people that you either love or hate me. For those of you that are willing to do the unexpected and expect the impossible, I hope you'll enjoy reading about my experiences and can learn and grow from them. Perhaps sharing my adventures can ease your path or even save you from making some of the same mistakes and show what is possible. That's my goal- to help others. I have been fortunate to have some great mentors and want to give back because anything can be accomplished if you apply yourself and sometimes that includes learning something from others.
"Risk more than others think is safe" includes my experiences analyzing and evaluating risk and why taking the leap is worth it.
"Care more than others think is wise" for me includes family and friends as well as caring for yourself, and treating your employees like family too.
"Dream more than others think is practical" for me is envisioning the future that I want, setting goals, then working to make them happen.
"Expect more than others think is possible" is demanding the best from my employees, my management team and myself.
