This is the part where I share some stuff about me and about my better half Lisa and all the cool things we’ve done but more importantly why you should listen to us and further get to know, like and trust us.
So I aim to not disappoint.
** This is us at a couples retreat in Quebec, Canada. Eighteen years together and we’re not perfect…but we work to be as good as we can be. That mantra is not just for life and love but applies pretty darn well to business too.
** We served in the Army. I say “we” because a military spouse also serves. Lisa was and is our rock while I was activated as an Army nurse for nearly two years after 911.
** I did an Ironman. But hey, it’s not about DOING the Ironman it’s about having the support, the drive and the grit to accomplish something that at one time was only a dream. Kinda like what we do as entrepreneurs no?
** We raised three wonderful kids. Man. That should be worth a gold medal in and of itself. But look, it’s about your (YOUR) why. The reason you get up and do the things you do. For me…well…for US…we’ve got three of them.
** We’re both RN’s…yep. Over 50 years of combined healthcare experience and we take it seriously. While we have applied our talents as healthcare pros and entrepreneurs on a bigger mission…make no mistake we are here to definitely provide a NEW type of wellness.
** And now here’s just good ole plain serious stuff:::
