I love coaching my team. I love being used to bring out the best in others.
I have a motto..."you work to live, not live to work." This is important to me. I have 5 kids (I know...I'm sick), so a commitment to my wife and kids is imperative. That only means that I have to be better at serving my clientele and have better efficiencies in order to do so.
Passions in life are really clear.
1) Want to be the best that I can be. Need to use the DNA that God gave me to the fullest. "Go hard or go home baby."
2) Vacationing with family - You only got one time to go around. Can't get that time back. "Work hard, play hard."
3) Disc Golf - Used to be a professional disc golfer. That was pre-kids. Important to me that I still get that opportunity to go out and hit the links. Check out www.pdga.com
4) Mountain and Rock Climbing - God made the Rocky Mountains for me. I love going up there and climbing all the 14-ers. Invitation to solitude with God and nature....too cool. Can't drive to most places. If you're going to connect, you need to put forth the effort in order to go to places that no one else will make the effort to achieve.
5) Re-Opening Camp Saint Malo - www.saintmalo.org/history.htm. I worked here during my 4 summers of college. Too cool to explain. Got it re-opened for 3 days last summer. Two weeks this summer. Want fun, the mountains, God and outrageousness all combined into one....Here's where it's at. Take a look.
6) Vince Lombardi mentality - God first, Family Second, Green Bay Packers, er...Cherry Creek Mortgage third....
