What is your story?
I came to Engler thinking I had the next big idea, even though it was not something I had a passion for, it was a problem that I thought I could solve. The idea was great, I had traction started, but God had a different strategy. I hit a brick wall for what seemed like no reason. So, I started working on myself and started thinking how I could use the resources around me to grow personally and to see a bigger picture. Once I was able to do that, things started to fall into place.
What is your business?
Who is your entrepreneurial inspiration OR biggest hero?
Ranchers, they go through all sorts of issues within their operation, their finance, their family; and passion leads them through the tough times. Not with excuses, but with the ability to work hard and solve problems.
What advice would you give to a student starting their entrepreneurial journey?
Get comfortable with being uncomfortable, start to develop a strong mentality towards personal growth. Your business starts with YOU., work on that first and the business will come.
What has been your favorite "Engler Experience" to date?
First meeting I had with David Lambe. I was new, and came into Engler with an idea (this particular idea was not successful), but I didn't know anyone and didn't know where to start. David brought me into his office during the welcoming event, we immediately connected and he listened to my idea. From that point forward I knew someone in Engler I could go to with questions and it later lead to several key introductions made by David.
What has been the biggest hurdle or struggle you've dealt with in your entrepreneurial journey?
Developing the right mentality to grow a business, as well as myself.
