I am the Co-founder of Calendar.com with a passion for helping people take care of the most precious assets we have... our time and relationships. I wrote a book called "Top of Mind" and do a lot of speaking on helping people build trust and engage the people that matter to them most. I am a PR/SEO/Thought Leadership strategist that can give an honest assessment of what you can do better to become more of a leader in your industry. I've been blessed to work with some amazing people during my career and love working with teams. In my spare time, I still will fix a toilet or other miscellaneous task for my real estate company that does student housing. I have a weekly column at Forbes & Inc.com, and also contribute to Harvard Business Review, LIfehack, Mashable, Fast Company & many others.
