After 19 amazing years, Nov. 10, 2021 marked my final day as a Ducks Unlimited employee. 🦆
The decision to leave the organization I love so dearly was painful and difficult, but it was also necessary. I will miss so many wonderful people who have impacted my life, but none more than my team.

To my team: I will forever be grateful for your hard work, dedication and support over the years. I’ll always have your back. Thanks for always having mine. 👊
Ok, that was the hard part to write.

I’m entering the next chapter of my career with a newfound sense of purpose…
I’m starting my own consulting business. My mission:
𝐓𝐨 𝐡𝐞𝐥𝐩 𝐧𝐨𝐧-𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐟𝐢𝐭 𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐝𝐞𝐫𝐬 𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐧𝐬𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐦 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐢𝐫 𝐋𝐢𝐧𝐤𝐞𝐝𝐈𝐧 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐟𝐢𝐥𝐞𝐬 𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐨 𝐩𝐨𝐰𝐞𝐫𝐟𝐮𝐥 𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐬𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐥 𝐛𝐫𝐚𝐧𝐝𝐬. 🔥
I’m going to teach them – and their teams – how to create content that will establish thought leadership, build trust among supporters and generate more donors for their organization.
There are hundreds or thousands of people reading this post who don’t yet understand the importance of a personal brand.
They’re using LinkedIn without a strategy. 🤔
They don’t realize the massive potential it offers to their company or the future of their own career.

In the coming months, I’ll share more tips that you can use to build a brand and get the most out of this platform. I’ll also share my journey into the world of entrepreneurship and the lessons learned along the way.
And yes, you’ll continue to see random videos from my deer stand and TikTok clips of my kids doing goofy things because that’s just what I do. 🤷♂️
So, that’s my next move.
I have trouble spelling “entrepreneur”.
𝐈 𝐰𝐢𝐥𝐥 𝐧𝐨𝐭 𝐟𝐚𝐢𝐥. 𝐈𝐭’𝐬 𝐧𝐨𝐭 𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐧 𝐚𝐧 𝐨𝐩𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧.
I’ll share more details about my company soon, but in the meantime, here’s how you can work with me:
✅ Pre-order my online course
✅ Book a personal LinkedIn profile/strategy session
✅ Schedule a speaking engagement for your team or company
Thanks to ALL of you for your support!
