Tell us about your business/occupation & how you ended up where you are today. 

Since early 2006 I've been working as a business advisor and trainer helping small business owners and business leaders improve their results. After my father's passing I decided to make a change to doing something that would have an impact. After some exploration I chose to take all of my business leadership and sales experience, as well as what I had learned from my father, and launch my practice.
