My mission in life is to enjoy life at a high level while helping others to do the same. I have a passion for living. I enjoy seeing how each individual is able to add life to his/her business model. I believe that our careers should not only help fuel our financial needs, but also fuel the creative energy that helps us to feel alive.
After graduating from the University of South Alabama in 1995, I began a career in Industrial Sales. During those years, I became fascinated with the various levels of communication within large business operations. I spent most days troubleshooting with various layers of people throughout a plant and quickly enjoyed noticing what each individual had the ability to contribute within a business.
After a few relocations and a major career shift, I spent several years in the wine business as a District Manager. Employed by a large publicly traded company, our goals and objectives were often driven by Wall Street and bottomline successes. During these years, I realized that it is not just what’s in the bottle or behind the label that counts. The value of your stock must always be measured and protected.
In 2006, the entrepreneurial bug bit. Over the past few years, we have opened a preschool, bought and property management company, started a real estate brokerage, sold a real estate brokerage, started and sold a vacation rental business, started and sold a construction company, rolled out a luxury real estate franchise and helped others find their passions through Gulf Coast Business Broker.
I truly hope to have the opportunity to engage with you and to be part of your life. It would be an honor to connect and to hear your story.
