John is absolutely invested in everything he does, in both his business and personal life. He invests his time, energy, faith, presence, initiative, and willingness to serve. The depth of his values-anchored commitment to forward growth in himself and others strengthens his relationships and is the foundation for his solution focused training.

John lives his life with a spirit of faith, helpfulness, motivation, encouragement, and truth.
