Keys to Success: “The two things that have contributed most to
my success are other people and balance. Whether ‘other people’
means employees, other business owners, experienced consultants,
or just people with an interesting perspective, I gain value and
energy from them. The name of my company does not include my
name—on purpose. It’s not about me—it’s about us. I can’t do what
I do without the commitment and energy of my coworkers. You will
never hear me say that anyone works for me. I always reference the
people who work with me. It’s just at the core of my perspective.
This company would not exist without the hard-working employees
I get to show up and work with every day.”
