My greatest accomplishment is marrying my high school sweetheart and bestselling author, Paige Dooly over 35 years ago. She has written close to 40 books, with four hitting best-seller status. She has blessed me with nine wild and crazy kids, ranging from ages 40 – 14, four boys and five girls.
Well, you should know is I’m far from perfect! Like most folks, I’ve had my share of adventures and challenges. I grew up in a family of outlaws, closely associated with Midwest organized crime in the 70s and 80s.
As a U.S. Marine and former Bounty Hunter, I’ve seen some pretty evil people in the world and had my share of run-ins with the law myself. However, by the time I was in my late 20s, I had a pretty good idea of the direction I wanted my life to go and make a shift, which has guided me to Living An Epic Adventure over the last 30 years.
In case you missed it above, I married my high school sweetheart, Paige Dooly, and she has given me four boys and four girls, which produced some fantastic grandkids. And guess what… She did all this while becoming a four-time Best Selling Author, with around 30 books now published with Harlequin, Barber, and Amazon! Can you tell how proud I am of her? 😉 She is my life, and I love her more than anyone by my Lord.
Ah… I should tell you about another major challenge I faced in 2012-13. One of my early clients was found by the Securities and Exchange Commission to be one of the world’s largest Ponzi Schemes. Regrettably, I was sanctioned by the SEC for NOT disclosing on a nationally syndicated radio show the full extent of my advisory and PR services with the founders. Talk about a life lesson I will never forget! I have taken that life lesson and turned it into one of the greatest opportunities in the world. However… I could never have done that had Paige not stuck by my side.
So now that’s a little about my backstory; let me share a little on the professional side.
I’ve been named One of the most influential commentators in the Main Street entrepreneur community by critics and proponents alike. I Co-founded with my lovely wife, Deep South Companies, a global consultancy with a sole focus on helping guide folks just like you to achieve a purposeful direction in your life or business by removing the crap holding you back! And in 2022, we launched BusinessNewsDesk.com, which is quickly becoming a top destination for Main Street Entrepreneurial News.
I almost forgot… A few folks say I have emerged as a leading authority in the area of developing trust-inspired, purpose-driven communication. Well, mostly, my clients do tell me that to make me feel good! 🙂
I work with some really cool startup entrepreneurs, as well as multi-national corporations, and have the great honor to sit on the Boards of GRSX, Nass Valley Gateway, Flag Media, miLife BioScience, The Cafe 180, and serve on the leadership team of Impulse Church on the Redneck Riviera of Florida.
And my team came up with a really eloquent way of telling you what I do…
“Our clients have adopted our breakthrough methodology and frameworks to protect their cultures’ integrity and to deliver a positive difference to the lives of people they serve.”
Now that you are laughing with me… Here is what that truly means – I love guiding my client in reaching their real purpose in life! Let’s connect so I can hear your story and see if there is a way we can help you achieve your desired outcome!
MY CREED, WHICH IS WHAT I THRIVE AT LIVING, IS
“Anticipate anything! Expect nothing! Appreciate everything! And live an epic adventure. In work or life; follow your passion, and live your purpose”
When I’m not working with clients, I love studying Jesus, driving my old Ford truck in the woods, and podcasting on topics that may help others find answers. I think I got this bug from being the News Director of the Home Business Radio Network back in the day.
Well, I hope this gives you a little inside look at who I am and what I stand for!
