Getting Better

You can’t realize your potential or reach your destination by following someone else’s path. You have to break the trail.You have to walk point, but I can help.

I felt like I couldn’t grow until I moved to Opus. Now I am encouraged to sell more with them.

When the going gets tough

Build Mental Resilience

Even with a solid plan, it is hard to stick with it. It is even harder after the initial burst of motivation wears off. I focus on helping you dig a well of mental resilience that you can draw from when the path gets hard.

Tactical Battle Drills

When you are forging a new path it’s easy to lose your way. It’s tempting to take a shortcut, but you know the shortcut won't get you to your destination. I’ll help you develop and implement the tactical battle drills that will allow you to respond while staying on target.

Dr. Rita Chorba

"Thank you for your guidance over the last year. You challenged me, called B.S. on me and, were tough, and fair, just like my DI was in 1993.

I needed it then, and still need it now.

THANK YOU for investing decades of leadership experience in me."

Brandon Wilson
Sr. Manager Advance Auto Parts
Our Founder
I’ve been leading and developing teams for no-fail missions for over 35 years.

While leading a Marine Force Reconnaissance Platoon in Afghanistan in the days after 9/11 I truly saw elite-level performance on demand. It is not a matter of some having it and some not, it is that some can see the destination and are willing to walk the hard path to reach it.

I’m leveraging the lessons learned from over 21 years of active duty special operations experience and 15 years spent training America’s elite Marine Raiders to help you get better at getting better and start Walking Point.
