Tell us about yourself
The death of my brother in 2019 made me think about where I was in my life, and I realized that I was not happy doing what I had been doing and that I needed a change. After spending over 30 years in the corporate world of sales and management, I started my own business. I got to do what I love: helping other people succeed in their sales and small business careers. I am inspired to help others do what inspires them so that they may be fulfilled.

Sometimes we can get stuck in life or on a project at work and we cannot seem to find the solution. Sometimes it is fear that holds us in place and other times it is something much bigger saying hold on.
What happens when you are faced with your own mortality? How do you respond? What have you done?
I got a chance to sit down and talk to Maya Lombarts from the Healthy High Achievers community and have a discussion about mental health and how we can work through some issues through conversations and getting help from others.
An excerpt from The Red Chair Experience...
“The good part about getting older is you stop trying to prove anything to anyone, including yourself.

I am not sure the thing that taught me to be open to experiences and take chances, but it seems to always have been a part of my life. I have not bungee-jumped or gone skydiving, but I have experienced a lot of things in my life. When it comes to experiences are you willing to step out and take a chance?
