On June 18, 2015, I was fired by my employer at a Lunch Meeting. My son was 2 years old and my wife was 6 1/2 months pregnant with our second child. It was Father's Day weekend! That weekend, I got hungry and committed to living the Professional Speaking Dream I had been "talking" about for years.
With the support of my family and friends, I used the skills I earned as a student leader, award-winning toy store manager, salesperson, educator, event planner and entertainer to transform the ultimate "burnt meal" into a tasty 5-Star Masterpiece!
I'm now invited teach my proven recipe for transforming your professional aspirations into reality with professional associations, corporations, schools, colleges, universities, nonprofits, and civic groups around the world . The same recipe I have used to go from unemployed to being recognized by the National Speakers Association as one of the top Professional Speakers on the planet.
When I'm not speaking, I practices what I teach. I currently serves as a volunteer and Board Chair for the Non-Profit organization Hustle PHX. Their team of staff and volunteers provide aspiring entrepreneurs in underserved urban communities with the resources needed to start and operate thriving businesses.
