After just over a year of The Hook, I spoke with wildly successful and passionate entrepreneurs and business owners on AM 950 KPRC. While the weekly radio show picked up a lot of traction and proved to be valuable for small businesses, far and wide, something was missing. I am excited to now be partnering with BBVA Compass as their Small Business Ambassador. Every month, I’ll be bringing a series of videos including business tips and tools of the trade along with an exclusive look inside businesses. We will be following everyday entrepreneurs as they grow their thriving businesses with unique leadership styles, insightful operational tools and undeniable passion for their business. Don’t miss out!

Every video is posted on this page, my YouTube channel and BBVA Compass’ website.
Content will also be featured throughout media outlets for business, success, entrepreneurship and more.
