About RTKO’s President & CEO

“Here, on this blog, I strive to write about both the successes and challenges that I face and eventually overcome. Some of the information shared is based on my reflections on past lessons which I have learned through both my professional and personal life. Other information are items of interest that have been passed on to me or found as part of a topic of interest. Yet, overall I would say the purpose of this blog is to share my personal journey with you as inspiration to know that we all face challenges and that should never stop us from our vision whether that means you are an entrepreneur, a corporate executive, or skilled tradesman. Bottom line, this blog encourages you to pursue your passions and share what you learn along the way as a tool to motivate other people who may also learn from you and be inspired by what you share. So with that in mind, your comments are always appreciated and strongly encouraged! ”
