About: Giving You the Vision to Live & Work With Excellence!
I am a speaker, business coach, a fellow entrepreneur, as well as a licensed pharmacist.
I am the author of the #1 Bestseller in Christian Professional Growth, The 100X LIFE: 7 Simple Daily Habits That Will Transform Your Life, Unlock Your Greatest Potential, and Create a Life Beyond Your Wildest Dreams.
My purpose is to help business owners to renew their life (Romans 12:2), Simplify and Get What they Want Out of Their Business, and Multiply Their Impact (Luke 8:8 & Colossians 3:23)! As a result, I write on strengthening your Mind, Body, & Sprit, Simplifying & Growing Your Business, entrepreneurship, trends, leadership, personal development, work/life balance, family, using business as ministry, sharing your faith, loving people under you, helping others, giving back, and even investing. On occasion, I write about other topics that don’t fit neatly into one of these categories because I am an ENTREPRENEUR and I can if I want to!
My goal is to create discerning, relevant content that stimulates your thinking and moves you to action in your spiritual, personal, and professional life. I have lived and learned quite a bit about this – much of it through trial and error, but I’ve discovered some simple yet effective systems that transforms and gets results. I’d like to help you and share what I’ve learned along the way. If you are in business – or aspire to be – then I believe you’ll like this blog.
Clinical Compounding Pharmacist with specialized training in Wellness & Natural Medicine from Professional Compounding Centers of America
I have been leading organizations most of my life. My first experience with leadership was involuntary: Within one month of graduating from Pharmacy School in 1995 at the age of 23, my father placed me into a newly constructed pharmacy on the outskirts of our small Alabama community. This was to be a second store for him, as he was splitting his current store into this one as well as buying another one. I was promised that he would be there quite often to assist me, as I had not yet even obtained my pharmacy license. Due to the overwhelming success of his acquisition, he was not able to be there to help as he wanted, so it became literally sink or swim! In fact, I was so inexperienced, I did not even know I was supposed to be paying back sales tax until I received a late penalty letter from the state 3 months later!
My dad started the family business in 1965 as a small community drug store. You know, the one on the corner that you had to go in to get that yucky pink stuff. I can still remember the smell and the sounds of “easy listening” music that always played in the background. In 1995 he expanded it into the two location and provided me with this opportunity, and challenge, of a lifetime. The pharmacy became my launch pad, and over the next 20 years I’ve built on this modest base.
Over the years, I became known for my entrepreneurial spirit and as an innovative visionary. I was fortunate to be honored for numerous awards over the years on a local, state, and national level. My greatest claim to fame is probably my invention of an appetite suppressant lollipop that I shared at a national convention and is now widely used by compounding pharmacists throughout the U.S.
I’ve started up over 7 different businesses and acquired two or three companies as well as commercial retail and office properties. I’ve also grown from one 3,500 square foot building to almost 80,000 square feet of medical office, office, retail, and now our latest venture, self storage. I grew our my business to over 15 employees and learned a lot about leadership in the process, much of it by trial and LOTS of errors.
In 2012, I sold my baby, Specialty Compounding & Wellness Pharmacy to a bright, vibrant young man. And it 2014 I sold my last retail venture, Living Well Natural Store, to focus on my calling of helping other business owners like yourself, who may be where I once was.
And where was I? Well I was very successful and had it all together on the outside.
But on the inside I was:
- Extremely Frustrated
- Felt Trapped by This Monster of an Extremely Successful Business I Created
- Lonely- It is VERY Lonely at the Top
- Incredibly Stressed
- Worn Out
- Burned Out
- Abusing my Body
- Abusing my Position of Authority both at Work and at Home
- Not Present
I was battling some dark times. And through a slow, but steady process that I’ll share as we travel down this path together, I discovered Natural, and Super Natural ways to get my life back. That is what I why I want to coach you. Because I know where you are, what you are going through, and how you can:
- Renew Your Life
- Simplify Your Business
- Multiply Your Impact!
