Above all else, I am a husband to my beautiful wife, father to my incredible three boys, and son of our Heavenly Father, the best dad anyone could have.
Some of my story is shared with you throughout this book. I worked in college as a laundry sorter. I was the prideful young professional who left a good job for the wrong commission-only job and almost lost our home in the process. I know what it is like to be in front of others, presenting or interviewing and being scared and feeling like I was faking it. I was the one who almost didn’t graduate from college.
My twenty-year career is a combination of mistakes, triumphs, failures, learning, and now teaching and mentoring. I have taken everything I have learned through my life and as a Vice President for one of the nation’s largest credit unions and have seen the tangible success of depositing into the lives of others. I am blessed to work for Idaho Central Credit Union, where I have learned how to lead with love from all my incredible leaders.
I can now speak to groups of hundreds or one-on-one with authenticity, because I firmly believe I am becoming who I was created to be. I now get to help others find their own path through my courses and private coaching to create breakthroughs that can change everything.
I am on a mission to empower those around me to be the best version of themselves. To bring out the gifts, strengths, and good stuff that God has put in each of us. Going through this process with my own boys helped shape this book and I am grateful to learn from them and also shape the start of their careers.
My son Henry has always loved story, as long as I can remember. His bouncy excitement and love for life are on display for those who know him and his voice is evident throughout this book. He has a heart for God and is walking the path that few dare to walk on. I feel privileged to be his father.
We live in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho and enjoy the beauty we are surrounded by all year long. We are playing on the lake in the summer, hiking at many of the spots highlighted in this book, and skiing together in the winter.
My dear reader, thank you for walking your path.
