Reflecting back to my time as a First-Team, All-State tennis player in Peoria, IL, this is where I developed my competitive spirit and drive to continue getting better. Taking ownership in how I performed on and off the court, both mentally and physically has served as my foundation for doing what it takes to not only win, but to set an example for what it takes to get to the next level!
For over 12 years, I honed my online skills for some very reputable multimedia companies in the US, including Dex Media, Gatehouse Publishing, and Adams Outdoor. Their intensive training prepared me to meet the challenges in an ever-evolving landscape of how consumers shop, and what influences them to take action.
My passion has always been in helping entrepreneurs. However, as I progressed in my career, several things began gnawing at me.
Over time, I started to feel limited in how I could best serve my clients. These included platforms I wanted to offer, the pressure to hit quotas to make a commission, and consistently being micro-managed by those with little disregard to the needs of the businesses.
I always believe that ‘nothing ventured results in nothing gained.’ Therefore, I decided it was time to bring the fun back into doing what I love… while taking control of my own destiny!
So, in 2019, I packed up my box, said goodbye to the world of ‘cookie cutter’ corporate methodologies, and relocated to Colorado Springs where I started razzle media.
The outdoor grandeur fused with rapid business growth made this an ideal springboard to engage with new and innovative business leaders from a wider range of industries.
This also fueled me to become immersed in learning more cutting-edge, hyper-targeted solutions that businesses are going to need to compete in a market that will be engulfed by artificial intelligence, machine learning, and data science.
And, I have no intentions of looking back!
