Developer and Executive Coach
As a visionary who works with high-end executives but has a strong passion for young adults, Randy coaches young adults to not only explore their potential but to bring reliable results to their combined need to think both traditionally and “out-of-the-box” as entrepreneurs.
Randy believes that the current young adult generation is naturally being trained to think differently, to think like an entrepreneur.
Randy will often be heard saying, "This generation is the smartest and informationally rich generation of all times. They are not seeking information from leaders, parents or school teachers like older generations. But, they are not sure what to do with all of the information that they have at their fingertips. They are seeking mentors and coaches to guide them. But, not to control them."
However, without some strong guidance, “out of the box” life experiences, coaching, and learning to focus the informationally and idea-rich brains of our current generation, the lack of grit, resiliency, and focus will bring a much lower life result than their potential.
With international living and global business relationships his resources, Randy brings successful ventures to programs that produce thriving global citizens. Randy’s personal experiences traveling and living abroad have created a strong passion for young adults to do GAP year, internships, and service missions in conjunction with clinical support services and traditional education.
Randy grew up in Missouri, has lived in Europe, Hawaii, and has made Utah his home. Randy and his wife Lara live in Salt Lake City, Utah. Together, they have passions around spending time with their kids, concerts, skiing, traveling, and just being at home together!
