I help thought leaders reach their potential
My best skill is interviewing accomplished people like you. (Writing is a close #2.)
I work with most clients on a retainer basis, helping them to reach a larger audience in a more focused and compelling manner.
Since my clients are 100% confidential, I use the writing I do under my own name to demonstrate my capabilities.
For five years, I have been a Forbes contributor in the Leadership and Career channels; my focus is on bringing out talent in others.
I am the co-author with Amy Blaschka of I Am: Escape Distractions, Unlock Your Imagination & Unleash Your Potential, a #1 new release on Amazon in Health & Stress.
I am also the author of How to Self-Promote without Being a Jerk and also Never Tell People What You Do, both of which have been best-selling Kindle titles on Amazon. My 2001 book, Making It Personal, predicted many of the personalization practices that have become mainstream today.
In Park City, I'm known as the Chairlift Chats guy, who interviews fascinating people on chairlifts. I ski about 55 days a year, usually 90 minutes at a time. (Your "lunch" is my 10,000 vertical feet.)
