It was just a little over 5 years ago that I found myself turning 41. Yikes! I was the typical hard-working very ambitious corporate guy who had worked his way up the so-called ladder of success only to become keenly aware that success doesn’t mean fulfillment, quality of life or an incredible future. Not to mention, I knew even with providing a lot of value to my employers, I was still very expendable and replaceable. My work experience includes sales, consulting and training for 11-years with Franklin Covey, a leadership development firm, and 5-years over-seeing the business marketing & training with a consumer goods manufacturer. With my beautiful wife and five children I am not a big risk-taker, but I love to work hard as long as there are big rewards and I love to play hard.
