Remember the ALAMO

That's me in a genuine 'coon skin hat just like my great, great, great, great, great granddaddy, Davy Crockett once wore.

That’s me in a gen-u-wine ‘coon skin hat just like my great, great, great, great, great granddaddy, Davy Crockett once wore.

In Texas there is a famous battle cry that inspires people to this day, “Remember the Alamo.” Whether you’re a Texan, or from someplace else, you know that the Alamo represents brave men fighting for independence. You also know that it represents that sometimes in life defeat comes before victory.

My family has a special connection with Texas history and the Alamo. I am a direct descendant of Davy Crockett (he’s my great, great, great, great, great grandfather).

Today, “Remember the Alamo” is still significant. For me, “Remember the ALAMO” means:


Always Learning, Always Maximizing Others

Have you ever had your world shaken upside down? I have. In February 2012, after nearly ten years at Dell, I was handed a layoff notice and told that I had two weeks to find a job within Dell, or I would be “promoted to the industry.”

Layoffs

 

Always Learning: When faced with the career change, I hit the books and started learning. I read 48 Days to the Work You Love by Dan Miller, the E-Myth by Michael E. Gerber, and formed a company that provided Professional Education courses via eLearning to k12 administrators. I also learned about people, personalities, strengths and communication styles.

Always Maximizing Others: Through this process, I discovered that my passion was to “Maximize Others.” You have unique talents, and abilities and I want to help you find your passion to unlock your potential so you can live life to your maximum potential.
