President’s Welcome Letter
Welcome to Spirit Consulting!
Completing my MBA and serving Fortune 500 companies for thirteen years taught me the value of ongoing education and striving for excellence in all areas of my life. But I can point to one specific event that most shaped my outlook on business and served as the catalyst to start Spirit Consulting.
Three years ago an off-duty sheriff knocked on my door to serve me divorce papers. That started a two-year process that proved to be one of the most difficult periods of my life. As challenging as it was, the separation proved to be a blessing in disguise. It forced me to take inventory: to reflect on who I was, where I was going, and who and what was most important to me. With these questions fresh on my mind and heart, my experience of the ‘business’ side of the divorce was magnified.
The attorney I hired for the divorce looked great on paper. He has an undergraduate degree from Michigan, a JD from Harvard, and leads the family law practice of a well-established firm. In our initial meeting, he quoted six to nine months and ten thousand dollars. By the end of it, I had paid out thirty thousand dollars over a two-year divorce. I felt lied to, betrayed. My expectations and my family’s best interest didn’t seem to factor into the equation for him at all. Communication was sparse. I was no longer a priority as soon as I was no longer a guaranteed source of revenue. In a word, my experience with this firm and its representative felt inhumane. I didn’t want anyone else to be on the receiving end of a heartless business relationship, and so Spirit Consulting was born.
Spirit Consulting is driven by a fiery desire to help our clients reach unimaginable personal and professional fulfillment. We seek to accomplish this through virtuous service – through the intentional practice of honesty, integrity, humility, patience, kindness, faithfulness, joy, and self-control. Our hope and goal is to approach all of our relationships with this same disposition of receptivity. We have experienced again and again how a small act of kindness, self-sacrifice, or simply listening and being present to the unique person in front of us can start a beautiful relationship.
