WHAT DO YOU DO?
Help people find jobs they love and help companies ensure their employees love their jobs. We want to end suffering in the workplace!
WHY DO YOU DO IT?
Transform the way people think about work.
WHAT IMPACT ARE YOU MAKING?
We are ending suffering in the workplace one person at a time.
WHAT (OR WHO) INSPIRES YOU TO MAKE THIS IMPACT?
After 12 years in corporate America seeing too many people dying on the vine, I opened TTC to help people find more happiness at work. We spend the best hours of our days and the best years of our lives at work, and we should love it.
WHAT IS (OR HAS BEEN) YOUR GREATEST CHALLENGE?
Our biggest challenge has been reaching companies who truly value their employees and want to have a happier team.
WHAT WORDS OF ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR OTHER LEADERS WHO ARE LOOKING TO MAKE AN IMPACT?
Don’t forget your why as it is a critical step to helping your business thrive. Once you define your why, you can hire, fire and train your staff to your why.
HOW CAN OTHERS SUPPORT YOU OR YOUR CAUSE?
Encourage leaders to reach out and get help if they are struggling with their employees.
