I am the founder of the Ascent Performance Group. Ascent was created to assist business executives, sales people and non-profit leaders in developing both personally and professionally.
For the past 18 years I have coached, developed and led sales people and business leaders to higher levels of achievement and performance. I have assisted team members in attaining goals of increased sales and profits as well as personal growth. I coached others to these successes using the foundation of building your business around your life, rather than building your life around your business.
I was in the mortgage banking business for 30 years. I held positions in sales and sales management. I led teams as large as 134 team members. I was responsible for sales, recruiting, retaining, training and leading the team. I was also in charge of growing new markets and P&L management.
I realize there is not a straight line to the top. Life, and business, are filled with peaks and valleys along the ascent to ultimate success. As your coach I will guide you through these peaks and valleys so that you can attain your life and business goals.
Meet My Family
I have been married to my beautiful wife, Donna for 30 years. We have 4 grown children, 2 young men and 2 young women. My wife and I live in Omaha, Nebraska. In my free time I enjoy walking, reading, keeping physically fit and traveling. We are members of St. Stephen the Martyr Catholic Church.
WORK WITH ME
I have been in the business world for over 30 years. I have led teams, developed sales team members and helped people achieve promotions to leadership positions. I have led through extremely challenging periods of growth and change. I understand the challenges you face on a daily basis at home and at work.
I personally hired an executive business coach in 1998. I didn’t have anyone to bounce ideas off and to hold me personally accountable so I got a coach. Today I do the same for the people I coach. I help people like you achieve more than they could on their own.
I have coached hundreds of people to become a better version of themselves. I am here to help you do the same.
I invested hundreds of hours and over $200,000 to learn the principles that I coach. I use this investment to help coach you with the lessons I have learned. I coach on the 6 F’s, Faith, Family, Fitness, Finances, Friends and Fun. These principles will help you have a clear vision on your life and business, a plan to attain your vision, get more done in less time, have better health, better relationships and make more money without sacrificing your career.
