I believe that nothing matters until you know your heart. And that when you know your heart, it changes how you live, lead and brand. For me, this purpose and passion to connect leaders to their hearts manifests in a variety of ways.
root + river
Co-founded with Emily Soccorsy, we believe that all brands begin at the root – which is found in the heart of a leader. We work with leaders to coach them and their teams through the process of becoming a brand that is a monuments to their belief systems – and that creates an authentic, vibrant presence in the modern world. We assert that branding is first a spiritual exercise – an inward journey to a deeper purpose and mission that is more than just being a business or revenue model. As such, we only work with heart-based leaders – leaders that burn to be relevant, have high standards for themselves and truly love people.
I believe that lack of self-worth is the #1 cause of unhappiness for leaders. This unhappiness is manifested in their businesses, careers and relationships. Through my immersive and intense Austin Sessions [link], I coach these lost, stuck or bored leaders through a journey to expand their self-worth. This work is both terrifying and exhilarating – for it taps into the soul, confronts fears and re-shapes expectations. This journey begins in the heart of each client and ends with discovering their place in the world, learning to speak truth from the heart and perpetually creating value.
I am more professional agitator than professional speaker. I am the speaker you book for your executive retreat, conference or company event if you want to knock the dust off some souls and re-arrange some atoms. I connect brands and branding as the center of the convergence of leadership, culture and modern marketing. I also speak on personal branding, generational shifts, and social business. In addition to my solo presentations, I also frequently co-present with Emily.
