It’s Okay Mr. Crenshaw, I’ve Got Your Back

I pity Dave Crenshaw.

He’s going to be a featured speaker at LTB 2014 and will be flying into JFK from far-flung Utah.

The man will spend five hours sitting in a narrow economy-class seat surrounded by violent turbulence, screaming babies and frazzled parents.

But the most successful business owners take that realization to the next level by asking: “What action steps can I take to break the cycle and leverage my team and resources for the best results?”

A sought-after author, speaker and business coach, Dave Crenshaw is the master of helping business owners triumph over the chaos holding them back from reaching the goals that they work so hard to achieve.
