See How Far You’ve Come

It was exactly three years ago today that I signed the final papers to sell my company. As I look back over the last three years I am blown away at how much has happened since then. I transitioned out of my old company, I launched REES Capital (my angel investment firm), got our charity […]

What an Incredible Day!

What a day today was!  I started my day at 5:00am this morning so I could get downtown for an early morning meeting with President Wheelwright, the President of BYU Hawaii.  He and I had a wonderful talk about the Entrepreneurship activities going on at his University in Hawaii.  They are doing some really incredible […]

Here’s To Strong Women

“Here’s to strong women.  May we know them, may we be them, may we raise them.” Tonight the University of Utah held a Women Alumni event at our REES Capital offices and they asked me to hold a Q&A forum with the women where they could ask me questions about my past experiences and life […]

CEO Perspective on Treating Employees Well (and other tips)

I was interviewed on Real Recognition Radio by Roy Saunderson and S. Max Brown and the episode aired earlier today.  During the interviewed we discussed questions such as:  Are there differences in the way men and women lead? What makes a great leader?  How important is communication in a company?  How to build a culture? How to […]

I can’t believe it’s already been one year!

I can hardly believe that it was exactly one year ago, last Saturday, that we signed the closing documents to sell MediConnect (MCG).  Since that day it has been a sheer whirlwind of activity so when I realized that it was the one year anniversary over the weekend all I could think of is how it […]

Photo Montage of Grand Opening Event

 Rather than writing a blog tonight I thought I would share a few of the fun photos taken of our Grand Opening Event.  First I will show photos of a few of our friends who attended and then I will post some of the other photos of the inside of our offices as not all […]

“Sometimes the Best Thing You Can Do Is Just Breathe…”

 After working incredibly hard for the last few months to get REES Capital launched, our building construction and renovation completed, and setting up our new offices with furniture and decorations and all the hoopla in order to be ready for our big Grand Opening tomorrow, I definitely needed to hear that quote you just read.  […]

Don’t Look so Shocked!

“Don’t look so shocked that I know how to use a screw driver and a hammer and that I am willing to get dirty hauling boxes in from the storage unit and assembling furniture!”.  That is what I wanted to say to all of the surprise visitors (and there were a lot) that dropped in […]

Move In Day!

Monday morning we are officially starting to move-in to our new REES Capital offices!  I can’t believe the day has finally come!  It feels like we have been doing construction forever on the build-out of our new space.  Between city zoning issues and getting permits it has been a long process, but it is so […]

Day One, One Word – EPIC!

Today was day one, I repeat, day ONE of REES Capital and let me tell you that EPIC is seriously the only word that would describe today.  What a whirlwind of amazingness today was!
