Q: What is the book about?
A: Do you make things happen? Are you an authentic leader? Are you able to define your personal brand? How do you live out your personal brand each day?
Life experiences combined with your own interpersonal traits, collectively emote a personal brand – something nebulous yet completely comprehendible. A concept that when understood, is powerful in both personal and professional endeavors. Hence the purpose of this book.
The book chapters depict many life lessons, words of advice and a few stories that tie directly to a personal brand model – the Live It Out (LIO) model. Key messages within the book link to one of the cornerstone focus areas within the model including Self, Faith, Community, Family, Work/Career, and Outside Influences.
Q: Why are you the best person to write this book?
A: First, my experience working across more than 30 large and small corporations both in the management consulting industry and at Coca-Cola Customer Business Solutions. Second, I am “making things happen” – writing this book, releasing my first country music album, working on my next album, etc. – while many others just talk about their dreams, passions, and interests without taking the step to live it out. Finally, I have a unique perspective with a blend of the professional world and the artistic world of singing / songwriting and writing.

A: Make It Happen! offers a new, fresh approach to authentic leadership from the perspective of living out your core values and learning from everyday life experiences.
