He’s been a close friend and associate of Dave Ramsey; a famed radio host and author. He knows the value of mastermind groups and shares his feelings openly.
At 50 years old, and at the encouragement of Dave Ramsey, he was told that after a lifetime of success, 10 businesses, and a great family that he needed to become a coach. He bucked the ideas but after attending a Dave Ramsey event, changed his tune and entered the space.
He shares his rules of success so that others can succeed with encouragement like this:
1. Be an inch wide and a mile deep.
2. That’s a way to ensure success.
3. Motivation is a myth. It an exhaustible resource. A plan is what works.

7. Isolation is the enemy of excellence.
8. Success and significance go hand in hand.
