Thank you for visiting my blog. I’m honored that you are here.
Since this website is about turning vision into ventures, I’ll start with telling you about some of mine.
I have a passion for starting things. In fact, you might think of me as a business creative. I have less interest in extending the status quo than finding new ways to do things.
That’s brought me into a lot of opportunity to work with some amazing people and companies, primarily through my venture management consulting firm, Lumina Consulting Group, that I founded in 1995, but also through my non-profit, BoldPath Life Strategies, that I launched just over a decade ago.
Over the course of my career I’ve led divisions in Fortune 1000 companies, launched and led consulting firms and software companies, and founded or led several non-profits and served on several corporate and non-profit boards. I’ve spoken to thousands of people, written hundreds of articles, created nearly a hundred podcasts, and coached or counseled countless leaders and emerging leaders. In each of these endeavors my primary interest has been to unearth a person’s (or firm’s) core value and finding creative ways to grow it.
My most recent endeavor is StrategicCEO, a website and associated services dedicated to increasing the strategic capacity of leaders.
Over the past decade, I’ve come to discover that a lot of the principles I’ve applied in the business world to clarify mission, values and strategy also works with individuals. That’s the point behind BoldPath Life Strategies, where I deliver a number of workshops to help Christian men and women develop a more intentional approach to unleashing their personal mission.
But the greatest honor I have is as a husband to my wife of 35 years, Anna, and a father to my four adult children, Stephanie, Ryan, Joshua, and Jonathan. They are a constant encouragement and delight.
By the way, if you’re wondering about the strange spelling of my name, read my post about it. Then take a moment, comment on a post that interests you or drop me a note and tell me about you. I look forward to meeting you.
