During my 20-year+ business career, I’ve worked for multiple Fortune 500 Companies—managing up to 5 states, 200 locations, and 5,000 people. I’ve led inside sales and operations teams at small technology companies. I’ve started and owned two retail fitness centers and a real estate property management business. I also earned a master’s from the University of San Francisco in Human Resources and Organizational Development.
After more than 20 years in corporate America, I decided to take the reins and live my dream: to be a sales and leadership coach, helping sales leaders and their teams maximize their potential. With my ACC credential, I became a certified coach through the International Coach Federation and received my ontological coach training through Accomplishment Coaching. Coaching has been a passion of mine for years. In corporate America, coaching was my superpower in all my success.
Life taught me that change is not just inevitable—it’s what brings opportunity. My journey has brought me success and failure. When we are afraid of failing we hold ourselves back from personal growth. Throughout my life, I learned to harness tenacity as a verb versus an adjective to describe a journey. I look forward to learning what makes up the essence of being you!
Like many of us, I’ve always been drawn to (and inspired by) stories that showcase examples of human accomplishment. While their specific goals are interesting, I’m primarily curious about each person’s unique journey.
What drove their desire? Who and what helped them rise above the daily noise and keep going? How did they shift gears and maintain motivation while skirting (or blasting through!) the inevitable external and internal obstacles?
As they strive for their personal best, I’ve observed three essential elements—ones we can all harness— connection, vision, and tenacity. But how they tap into these is unique to the individual.
That’s why I bring curiosity to my coaching approach, too. It’s fundamental to helping my clients clarify the gap between the past or present and the future they want.
I thrive in working with sales leaders and their teams to co-create supportive structures to provide tools to help them understand themselves and be more successful at delivering on their goals. I have a system that empowers my clients to realize their potential and put in the practices and support they need to perform at their highest level. I believe everyone has the power and knowledge to reach their goals and a coach to help identify the barriers, provide the straight talk, and support them along the journey.
I have been married to my wife, a teacher, for 22 years. I am a father of twin girls who are in high school. Being a father is one of my greatest pleasures. I think I learn more from them and how they approach the world than I can ever teach them how to navigate life.
I love playing golf, camping, traveling, and riding my bike. In 2018 my daughters and I accomplished a goal of riding our bike across California, from Yuma, AZ, to Encinitas, CA. It was a great experience to plan and train for 8 months to accomplish the 7-day, 257-mile camping and riding adventure.
It would be my joy to help you explore what’s possible for your life, too.
