An avid outdoorsman, the author revels in testing our natural traits of self-questioning and doubting that can usually help us avoid one of the major things we face in life: risk. But without risk, there is little reward. Yes, we do need to question and doubt at every step of the way to be sure that our selections and choices allow for the best possible chance of success. But we must interminably challenge ourselves, if we are to achieve our dreams.

As an industry manager, executive recruiter, recruiting and sales trainer, event speaker, and as VP of a nationwide system of recruitment offices, the author has seen most every aspect of the hiring process from both the internal and external view as the decision-maker, the decision-influencer, and as the objective observer. This varied insight is what provides the clarity you will find in his personal coaching, in his lectures, and in his book.

“Trust and have faith in yourself. Work and develop your abilities as a Self-Recruiter, and never shy away from the most difficult and unappetizing pieces, and you could end up in the place you might never have expected: the top.”
