Business Leader and Coach
Unite Advisors

I became a business coach because I know exactly what it feels like to lack the tools and the confidence necessary to take a business to the moon. After the sudden death of our father and founder, my brother and I were forced into leadership positions for which we were ill-prepared. We knew we needed help and we sought out consultants and coaches. This was one of the greatest professional decisions we ever made. They gave us the confidence, encouragement, and tools to do many of the things we knew we should be doing, but didn’t have the confidence to do. They also taught us sales techniques, financial planning and reporting skills.

I knew one thing was missing: Culture. We could be great at sales and know our numbers backwards-and-forwards, but if we couldn’t clearly define and communicate our vision and our core values, and where we were taking the company, nothing else mattered.

I get up each morning excited about the day and the opportunities before me to help business leaders, who inspire me in return!

When I’m not working, I’m spending time with my wife and three kids. I love App State Football (and all other sports) and visiting the High Country!
