Do what you Love
Love what you do
I grew up in the family business, a retail store called Parkleigh. You can find a gift for anyone there. Entrepreneurship, since the age of 5, has been a part of every day life – from welcoming with a warm heart our customers into an amazing experience and carving your own path to figuring shit out and making mama proud. We educated, entertained and inspired customers, ourselves, and vendors day in and day out and loved every minute of it. My love for retail stayed with me and, in 1996, I started Kris & Co., a manufacturers’ sales agency that represented and sold the coolest of brands to all retailers across the northeast. After running it for 20 years from zero to 8-figures, I sold it to JG2HI (www.justgot2haveit.com) in May of 2016.
K2 started in 2012 as a side business. Somewhere along the way I found myself fulfilled like never before. I am so grateful to be able to be all-in on growing other people’s businesses.
GiddyUp & Make it Happen!
Why is this my mantra?
Clean & Sober since March 1st, 1989
I have always started and run my own businesses.
In 1996, I packed up and left Rochester for Boston to start Kris & Co.
In 2008, I went from Fat dad to Fit dad, completing six full Ironmans.
In 2016, I sold Kris & Co. to start something new, no safety net required.
I saw a common thread in each journey and now want to share it with you.
All journeys – sobriety, getting in shape, entrepreneurialism, coaching – began with Kickstarting my clarity and then making a decision to go make it happen.
Following my heart and a ginormous thirst for learning, I’ve spent over 2 decades in several deep immersion programs. I’ve served on the Boston Board of Entrepreneurs Organization (EO), attending affiliate university programs hosted around the country and around the world. I completed the EO Entrepreneurial Masters Program at MIT and have continued on with their Gathering of Titans program each year. I’ve been to many Tony Robbins programs from the Unleash the Power Within to the Date with Destiny to the latest Life & Wealth Mastery.
After using Gazelles’ One-Page-Plan and Rockefeller Habits to grow and scale my own business to 8-figures, I immersed myself into the Gazelles International Coaching program. I have become a Certified Gazelles Coach, which is focused on helping businesses master the “Rockefeller Habits” and The Four Decisions around People, Strategy, Cash & Execution. These are the foundations that all business must get right to ScaleUp.
