Of course this all depends on the path you choose.
For a long time I didn't choose, I let life choose it for me.
...and when you buck the system, life can be a bitch to navigate. Sometimes I've failed and sometimes I've done alright.
Here I share more about me personally and professionally because sometimes they merge. My passions are eclectic and you will see that, but one thing is true, I am focused on becoming better each and every day.
And helping those that ask!
Let's first start by pointing out this quote below. I'm a firm believer that this is true. But to fully believe, you must have a "Growth Mindset."

Everything I do is try to learn more. In fact, my kids and my ex-wife use to say, "you ask too many questions!" I guess that does get annoying. But I always want to know as much information as I can to make a very informed decision.
Ok, so I tried to organize this information to be easy to read, if you are so inclined to learn about me! 🙂

... and that bring me to my current state.
It's important to know your why and also know that it changes. Which I think is normal.
I made a video and a post (it will open in a new window.
I can go on and on, but I'm afraid I might bore you! So a lot of what I am doing from this perspective can be viewed at my youtube channel. While there please subscribe! 🙂

Leadership Development is fascinating to me.

I don't want to generalize but I guess I just did.
The stats reinforce this opinion as well. In fact I wrote about this titled: Role of a Supervisor and Positive Leadership. These stats are actually indicative to all industries even though I applied it to the call center industry.
