"I believe cabinetmakers are the good guys. We create objects that last for generations and tell stories. We are the trade everyone thinks they can do themselves but when they try soon learn its not that easy!"
I took the path many cabinetmakers take and went on to run my own business. I can do it better than the boss … I can set my own hours ... I can be my own boss and make more money. Yep, that was the plan all those years ago. Sound familiar? I did get there in the end but not without some pain and suffering.
After reaching near burn out in 2002, I sold my cabinet manufacturing business.
I discovered my true passion helping others in business.
I dove into coaching and advising anyone wanting my help as well as advancing my professional skills and knowledge.
First I added to my already extensive experience in business, to include technical business knowledge (including Lean Manufacturing, CPIM, CAD/CAM etc) as well as what is known as "soft skills" (SEIQ). As it turns out, it's the soft skills that are the most important!
"It's never about speeding things up! Its always about shortening the distances. "
I have also learned that every successful business is a great team. What I am most proud of is the team I have been able to build as we are all passionate about helping every client achieve their goals.
Our goal is to help you achieve yours!
