    Ep10: Culture and Relationships with Ken Krock

    Ep10: Culture and Relationships with Ken Krock

    Today, our guest host David Spray is joined by Ken Krock, founding partner of Houston law firm, Rapp & Krock.


    Ken talks about how being crystal clear on their culture has been a big reason for their flourishing growth and how implementing EOS, the Entrepreneur Operating System, contributed to the firm tripling in size over just the last three years.


    Although Ken is a hard-nosed litigator, he also reveals a softer side by sharing his ever-growing realization that relationships are all that matters at the end of the day.


    This is an interesting insight into a full-service law firm serving owners and officers of Houston-based businesses with revenues in the $5-50 million range.

    Gino's passion for helping entrepreneurs is contagious and I recommend checking out the book at e-leap.com. I've read the book and shared it with many people, and the website has many free supporting resources.

    Ep005: NFL to Entrepreneurship with Terrence Murphy

    Ep005: NFL to Entrepreneurship with Terrence Murphy

    Today on the Christine Spray Show, we're hosting Terrance Murphy, a household name to many people in Texas.


    Terrence had an incredible football career at Texas A&M University and the NFL before a paralyzing neck injury cut his career short. He struggled with deep depression and credits his recovery to his faith, saying, 'God doesn't give us anything we can handle' and his mother's leadership lessons. Since then, he moved back to College Station to build a wildly successful group of companies as a real estate entrepreneur. Terrence continues to give God all the glory and often prays about his decisions, investments, and opportunities in business and life.


    Terrence is a great example of someone who 'walks the talk,' and we appreciate the opportunity to walk in his shoes through our interview with him in life, family, business - and his new podcast, the Real Estate Entrepreneur with Terrence Murphy.


    This is an incredible journey to listen to and be inspired by.
