 Slow down, assertiveness is good, aggressiveness is not.  Nurture the relationship organically.  

TAKING THE LEAD BOLDLY

 Brian learned from an early age the importance of making relationships. Growing up as a 'military brat,' he was never in one place for too long. So, he learned to make friends everywhere he went, Pennsylvania, Hawaii, Virginia, and even London, England! Some of these friendships still held today.


Later in life, fueled by his passion for people, he dove in the hospitality industry - focusing on restaurant management. Drive and enthusiasm drove him into the small business world in 2016 when he and his partner, opened a marketing & technology agency. 



What motivates you to jump out of bed in the morning?

Motivation has come in many forms in my life.  First being, my son, Jackson Robert.  The freedom of being present in his life in every aspect - not missing the moments, big or small, is one of my why's!

  

In speaking of Connecting Connections ...and more specifically, I adore the fact that I am actually adding value to someone's business and most cases, their life.  As a 'solopreneur’ every connection leads to future business growth.

Do you have any advice for new business owners?

  •  Slow down, Assertiveness is good, Aggressiveness is not
  • Nurture the Relationship Organically

Greater Generations also plays a role in my life. As a member of the Executive Board, we are super excited to have programs and activities for Lucas County and surrounding areas.   Juveniles will regain trust, build respect, and open lines of effective communication throughout the community. 

TAKING THE LEAD BOLDLY....

In that position, he heard about the struggles of his fellow entrepreneurs (or as Brian likes to call folks like himself, solo-pruneuers). Knowing his strengths in networking, he started a new venture, guiding others in building their own circle of influence.


Brian is backed and supported by his thoughtful and always gracious wife, Susan, and his compassionate, dragon loving, eight -year-old son, Jackson Robert.
