A Quick Bio

This was me.

Thrown out of school with just months left to graduate. I had all the answers, a bad attitude, and while friends stood by me (for a while)… I knew I was greatly off-center. 

As I grew in the corporate world, I noticed I could make a path to success by working my tail off. I had no patience for those that didn’t follow suit. I had drive – but I didn’t have leadership. When I would climb the rungs of the corporate ladder, few would follow. I had a core of fellow driven people to tell me I was right… and after all, don’t we all want to be right? This core kept me flogging away longer than I should have. 

Between diving deeper into my faith, and recognizing that people didn’t really want to follow me although everyone wanted me to “manage things”, I knew I needed better foundations. I dove into Leadership study, performed case studies, and wrote the book. 
My team is here to help you get there quicker. 

Life’s curveballs had me guessing for a long time. It wasn’t until I was a lot further along in life than I had hoped that I realized all these trials, failures, and speed bumps were the catalyst to my finding success in helping others.

Now that is my call. When I work with a Powersport Dealer, I typically add 40-60% more revenue to their business and increase their internal culture simultaneously. When I speak on Podcasts, or do live events… the core value is adding value. The stuff that follows is the bonus and icing on the cake.

–Kurt
