I love leadership, laughs (and yes) libations.  I also love learning.  Although I've been in leadership roles for over 30 years, I love talking to leaders that are in the trenches and learning what works, what doesn't and what I can do differently.

This podcast is for everyone out there that is working to lead better, get more done and leave a legacy.  Leading others is a deliberative act and we can always get better.

Pop yourself open a cold one, sit back and enjoy!

There I was ready to interview Laurie Guest and she hijacked my podcast and interviewed me!  It was great to share some of my own leadership experiences and philosophies and talk with someone so smart!  Seriously, Laurie is one of the smartest business people I know AND we're both from the same area in Illinois (so we have a mid-west bond).  Take a listen to this week's episode. You'll enjoy it!
