Fighting Human Trafficking

Stop Slavery

We started Stop Slavery in 2009 as a means to fight human trafficking. Among other projects we currently have missionaries in Thailand, India and Cambodia.


I started Leadercast.com as one of the first Leadership Podcasts in 2005.In 2009 I sold it to Giant Impact which they now use as their brand for their yearly leadership training event.

DTS Discipleship Training School

Cadence Discipleship Ministries (LifeCompass)

One of the steps on the way to launching CEO Shortcut was that I wanted to get experience in making disciples in an intensive, life on life, program. We started a Discipleship Training School in Chiang Mai, Thailand in 2011 and ran it for 3 years before turning it over to our teammates that we had recruited to help us. This school is still running in Chiang Mai if you are looking for a DTS not focused on business.


This is the site that I have used to explain more about the Birkman that I use in training events and as a business card for some of my speaking.



CoCoaching.co is an online training course to teach people how to coach one another to greatness and reaching their peak potential. It is also known as peer coaching and something that I still participate in even though I have had coaches for 15 years (paid and free) and I still have cocoaching meetings today.

I love helping people to discover their unique calling that they bring to the Kingdom of God.  For the last 15 years my favorite subject to train and coach on has been Identity, Calling and Destiny which is a large part of CEO Shortcut and I think one of the ways that I bring the most value to the Kingdom of God.
