“Trouble” is my Middle Name

My mother was once quoted as saying to my brother “Get on a bike and find a friend”.  I never forgot the poignancy or clarity of this message and eventually found a way to communicate my own purposes with the same impact, “Find a Talent and start Trouble with it”.

People don’t like the same old, plain, boring approaches to thinking and action.  They want a fire starter, someone that bounces off the page and into the end zone of their imagination.  Clients and Colleagues want to be with professionals that inspire them to greatness beyond their own capabilities, putting them onto the highlight reel of business performance making that game winning catch, that “this is my house” tackle, that ability to stare risk in the face and take opportunity to the goal.

I say, give the people what they want!  Welcome to my personal sports arena and training facility where sparks ignite possibilities and you have to work harder, faster, more creatively and more Kaple-ably just to earn the chance to compete.   Trouble is my middle name and I’m about to unleash my talents to burn this house down!
