Communicating effectively is one of the most important things we do. In fact, it may be the most important thing we do between us. Whether it’s use of language, good writing skills, building websites, building mobile apps, stage presentations or online presentations, communicating well is something I think about and work on all the time. Teaching anyone how to communicate better or creating helpful communications is enjoyable and rewarding. This is a big part of what I do and would like to do more of.
For over 25 years, retirement plans for educators and government employees is where I’ve specialized (ING/Voya, Aspire Financial Services, Kades-Margolis).
During that time, I’ve also had the amazing experience of building an internet software company (racereach.com) from scratch. Combining these two experiences has given me the ability to bring ideas and execution to a broad range of roles.
Rarely do I simply share ideas and ask others to execute. Instead, I like to be a part of both ideas and execution. Rather than criticize, I create. More on LinkedIn.
Marathons, Ironman trialthlons and 100 mile bike rides are, perhaps surprisingly, very enjoyable to me.
Training for, and competing in, these events allows me to set some of the most difficult goals, then do the work to recognize success. Unlike many pursuits in my life, these events are physically, mentally and emotionally taxing. And they can only be accomplished with significant effort. They also have a defined goal a way to measure success and a beginning and AN ENDING (so, so sweet). All of this I love.
