It Starts with a Spark

It has to start with a spark. Just like thinking up a great meal to cook on the grill, it has to begin with a spark to light the fire. On the eve of an event that I’m heading up calling Tech In Motion, the anticipation of an event that will explore how to move that spark forward to a raging fire is building to a roar in my mind that won’t shut off. 

My vision for focusing on the spark is, in essence, a spark of its own. I hope the tech community in Chicago grows into something substantially better than it is today and if I can have an impact in that growth I want in.

Who doesn’t want their name etched into people’s minds? Or, on the side of a bar like this picture.

I'm Tim. I live in Cole Valley, San Francisco with my wife, Julie, and two daughters Addie and Audra. I tend to write a bunch about leading Sales teams, since that's what I've been doing since 2006. I'm particularly drawn to the psychology of selling, whether that be how people buy things or sell things, it's fascinating how decision-making is centered into the core of who you are as a person. I enjoy cultivating a culture centered around mastery of your craft and a genuine passion for winning together. Outside of professional learnings, I enjoy listening to epic sci-fi and fantasy books while I run long distances to decompress and obsessed with watching my two girls grow. For a good ice breaker, ask me about my Golden Retriever and my Bernese Mountain Dog.
