Who you are
I believe that leadership is setting the example. You can’t ask someone to perform a task that you are not willing to take on yourself. Also to help those reporting to you succeed at their goals.
I’m humble. I don’t seek recognition for the things I do. I’m a family man. I put my family first in all situations, as long as my wife and two children are happy then I’m happy. I love to learn new skills.
Whether it’s reading or hands on training I’m constantly trying new things. I love to stay active. Especially outdoors, I enjoy working out, running, hiking and playing sports.
I want to make people feel inspired to do something they don’t think they can do.
Usually the current author of whatever book I’m reading. I am inspired by people who have the same values as I and aren’t afraid to speak their mind.
Leaders who seek power and use fear to get what they want, that’s just not the right way to do it in my opinion.
Spending time with my wife and two kids.
I’ve always found ways to improve on processes, even growing up in a restaurant. After spending some time performing a task that I was taught to do I can usually find a way to do it faster or better with the same results.
I helped with the expansion of my family’s restaurant and the first 12 months were a painful learning experience. We blew through money way too fast. This forced me to put my head down and figure out a way to bounce back. We eventually turned a corner and saw several years of double digit growth but I definitely learned a lot during that time.
I don’t have a specific number but my goal is to have a few passive income streams that allow me to work just a couple hours a day and spend the rest of my time on personal development, with family or giving back to the community.
How you like to work
Definitely on the efficient side which can come back to bite me sometimes. However, recently I’ve made a conscious effort to recognize when there is a need to be thorough and when I can be efficient.

I’d like to spend the first 2-3 hours of my day creating or improving processes followed by a workout and lunch with my wife and then spending 2-3 hours in the afternoon learning and working on personal development
Putting out fires all day long and not being able to perform any proactive work to improve process.
Your role at Acquira
Director of Diligence
I met Hayden through one of his Mexican apprenticeships and have been with the company ever since. Being able to work remotely is a huge benefit but I joined to learn new skills and really enjoy the team we have.
I feel like I learn so much from working here. The team, our partners, the sellers we work with, they all share tidbits of information if you are looking for it.
Probably some kind of software that helps small business owners turn their mom and pop shops into real businesses.
Working my ideal work day described above 🙂 Helping my kids learn how to solve for money. My marriage is 1000x stronger than it is today from ten years of strengthening. Giving back in my community in someway, possibly teaching kids from my high school.
