As a finance executive and business strategist I came to realize I couldn’t reach my financial targets or strategic goals without every member of my team playing full out. As I worked to help each person optimize their potential I saw how different everyone was—each one requiring a unique approach to their personal development. Discovering new ways to impact people and performance turned into a passion I pursued relentlessly.
This became exponentially more important a few years later after I fell down a mountain. The result of this fall from grace was about three years of down time—the first spent as my body disintegrated and the next two invested in rebuilding. At my lowest point, I could only be out of bed for a few hours a day with any type of activity being near impossible.
