The Vanguard Letter isn’t for everyone. If you are a leader (or would like to be) who influences others, you may find it stimulating, however.

You’ll find it to be broad in its range of topics, thought-provoking in its angles, and a mix of art and science in its approach to leadership and innovation in business, personal, familial, and societal applications. From better communication (which is at the core of all success, in my opinion), to operational insights, to nurturing strong relationships, to creative marketing and beyond, I’ll share experiences from my own journey and those of my clients and close associates guaranteed to spark inspiration. There are no book reports or rehashes of others’ content here. Every issue of The Vanguard Letter is an original creation.

Weekly Insights

Subscribing doesn’t put you on a spammy pitch-of-the-day email list. You receive the full version of each issue of The Vanguard Letter in your inbox immediately when it is published. That’s it. I respect you and your inbox. If I have anything else I’d like to share with you (information on upcoming events, additional discovery opportunities, etc.), such information will be at the bottom of the letter. This publication is all about sharing what I have learned during my journey, so every issue will be rich with stimulating content.

My members receive the insights I’ve gained from building multiple industry-leading companies, guiding my clients through trecherous terrain, and even working with my wife and best friend, Lisa, to raise a family of tightly knit kids.
