In his own words

I think it’s critical to set clear expectations. I call myself a troublemaker because I tend to shake things up. Steven Covey says you can’t talk your way out of situation you’ve behaved yourself into. Similarly, you can’t talk your way into a great reputation; you can only earn it.

In my career, I’ve negotiated with major Hollywood studios, coordinated with the United States Secret Service, managed celebrity events, facilitated CEO roundtables, lectured at colleges and universities, testified as an expert witness on branding, served on multiple city boards and committees, moderated numerous conferences, created a ground-breaking fastpitch event for social innovators, and piloted a public speaking program for an international corporation. Through all of it, I’ve come to believe that only people with great purpose achieve great possibilities.

I have also come to believe that treating people better is, hands down, the best way build your brand and your business.
