The White lake consulting story
I lived in Michigan from the time I started and graduated from Kalamazoo College in 1976 all the way through the end of 2018. When I made the decision to leave a company I love (Autodesk) and follow my passion to teach and mentor, I lived in a town called Montague, Michigan. It is part of a local area called “White Lake” and is home to the world’s largest weathervane. The image of the weathervane is above. It represents the compass, which directs my life.
My favorite scripture is Matthew 25:21:
“His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.”
This passage talks about eternal rewards (in the context of the parable of the talents) but I believe that there is a secular message as well. We all want to leave a legacy and helping younger sales reps is one way I can fulfill that mission. I have picked up many strong sales “talents” along the way and sharing those is very important to me. It is what gets me going every day!
I absolutely LOVE what I do—and I believe this passion is contagious.
