Bit by bit we find our courage and our kindness, we take our Dogs and Cats to a safe place. We find words to relieve our children and grandchildren of their fears. We assure them that this too will pass. We help our friends and neighbors, and we begin to once again believe tomorrow will come. We will rebuild and be strong. In the end, we find the heart and the strength to reach out with a caring hand.
I have 40 years of Retail Management experience. I am the person they send in to fix things. Call it a Store Focus Specialist, a Smoke Jumper, an Outlaw. I can work within the system or go outside the box when needed. I love walking into chaos and bringing order. I am not a key word person and my education came from mentors not schools. I believe that everything that we do starts with hiring the right people. Driving sales, merchandising, customer service and metrics are just keywords until you hire the right people. My top talents are Recruiting, hiring, training, associate development, and going into a focus store and turning it around. Most importantly I believe in people and that if you teach them, develop them and believe in them they will do far more than they thought possible.
