I’m odd. 

I’ve always been told that. 

Even when I was in school my teachers constantly reminded me that I can be ‘off’ at times. 

Later, when I was in high school a role model told me something that changed how I thought about myself. He said “Champions are strange”. 

It was simple, and forced a powerful realization onto me in the future…

I spent five years in the Army as an Airborne Infantryman. During that time I had two deployments to Afghanistan and a whole lot of jumps out of airplanes. This was a very interesting time in my life and I learned a lot about myself and how much I hated being confined to the regimented thinking of the military. 

I am the founding owner of the NH Business Show and the host of the podcast. I started this a few years ago when a friend/mentor told me that doing interviews with other business professionals was a great way to build a reputation for myself. Since I was fresh out of the Army and about to make my professional debut into NH I figured it was a great way to get my name out there. 

This was the beginning of a new way of looking at things

Sadly working for others didn’t produce the results I wanted and I decided to move out on my own. I realized, after doing some interviews, that I really enjoyed speaking with people about business and entrepreneurship. Knowing that this is what I wanted to do with my professional life I grabbed as much low budget equipment as I could and began my journey.
