My name is Eric and I love talking and teaching about leadership!
The picture you see below is me having fun with a few of my friends after I quit my day job.
I was frustrated with my job.
I was frustrated with myself.
I didn't like going to work.
I was miserable.
But it was all I knew how to do.
I wanted to do something different, but I didn't know what to do or understand what I was good at.
I did all of the things big corporations tell you to do, like manage your career and network. But nothing got better for me. Nothing changed.
I even went back to school to get my MBA.
That didn't help me make more money or get me that big promotion.
I was stuck and had no way out.
Until I broke free.
Now, I LOVE what I do!
I get to live my life on my terms.
I teach other people how to break free.
Now, I help and teach people just like you how to use their gifts, talents, and strengths, to live their lives on their terms every day.
Why I Do What I Do
Faith. Family. You. Those are the 3 primary reasons why I do what I do.
Faith - One day, as I was sitting in my mid-year review with my manager, I got a strong sense from the Lord that it was time for me to finally leave Corporate America and coach people, speak into their lives, and teach them how to get the most out of their lives on a full-time basis.
Family - Now, I get to plan my day around my family, and not around work.
You - I have the pleasure of helping people like you take steps toward making your dream a reality. I have the pleasure of helping you discover your purpose and calling. I have the pleasure of helping you grow and teaching you how to live it out on a daily basis.
As you listen to my podcasts, and follow me on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, you'll learn that I love Jesus, Leadership, Movies (I quote movie lines in all of my classes), and Music (Yep, I quote songs, too).
It's Not Too Late For You!
Before I started coaching, speaking, and teaching about leadership full-time, I spent almost 20 years working corporate jobs. I had to make a decision: Either spend the next 30+ years working corporate jobs and wondering what if or I could put the work in to discovering my calling, take some risks, and DO IT! I've been at this for a long time.
I had to grow and mature before I was able to do this full time. Just take a look at the date on the email in the pic below. See, my dream never died. It was just on pause! C'mon, somebody! If you've got a dream that's been on pause, It's Not Too Late For You!
I am dedicated to helping you grow in your current role or helping you figure out what you want to be when you grow up.
Thanks for reading this! I'd love to have you join me and the WordTalk Community.
