I’m just a guy who believes – with passion – that you can make choices today that will serve you tomorrow, if you’ll just get your head out of your consumer fog.
I’m a husband, father, grandfather, consultant, teacher and writer. I just moved from the dusty plains of West Texas to the town where I grew up – Mobile, Alabama.
I have a Ph.D. in Organizational Leadership and 36 years of experience in leading churches, owning businesses, and teaching on an undergraduate, graduate, and corporate level.
