For Entrepreneurs being able to adapt and grow within their role is key to a successful transition from a multi-tasking “do it yourself” role to a true inspirational Leadership position.

Your role will change, responsibilities will increase, effective time management is critical, but being a Leader or Visionary inside the company will be integral to you growing alongside and contributing to your companies growth.

This is a very thing for most Entrepreneurs to face, but those who embrace it vs avoiding it will be the ones who find success long term.

At LiquidMind #LiquidMindsite #LiquidMind #BrandStrategy we assist Entrepreneurial companies in making this transition, and assisting with long term growth strategies. Also, we work alongside these brands if, and when, they may decide to look for acquisition opportunities #entrepreneurship.

The author

I have a passion for living balanced life and a strong faith...each equally important for thriving and excelling…I love crushing mountain bike trails, exploring and finding ways to grow beyond the “status quo”. I am a dedicated, innovation driven team leader with a passion for establishing a disruptive vision and executing a market dominating strategy… Our industry has always been about creating innovative, market driving solutions that enhance performance or provide for a better life beyond sport. It has also been about culture, fit and passion for the brand. When these foundational pillars are removed, the brand starts to crumble. Being part of an industry that bridges talent between product creation, marketing, sales, finance and operations is formula for success, because every function is about building a foundational performance brand. It’s galvanizing when elite athletes wear and endorse our creations, but the real strength is leading the teams that combine their creative forces and technical expertise to make the engine roar. I am always passionate for defining and leading the next industry revolution… Extensive executive level experience across globally recognized brands, each number one in their respective  markets, along with having founded and successfully sold my own branded apparel company. Whether establishing new product lines, building global marketing strategies, leading design/development teams, I have a passion for building and growing brands.  Some examples; • Built Zamst from start up to achieving nationwide North American distribution, and 845% revenue growth over a 3 1/2 year period. • With Gathering Storm, grew TaylorMade/adidas Golf Accessories from $11M to $48M over 3 years. • K-Swiss, global executive management of $38M in international licensee’s and domestic apparel/accessories division. • OAKLEY, built and successfully developed “Athletic Division” NCAA licensed team eyewear/apparel product lines achieving $1.4M in initial season.
