I started BLCCS after realizing I was a misfit at other companies. For awhile I tried to avoid that reality, but it’s clear: I was meant to help people make their buildings better, not sell them equipment. With MBA and mechanical engineering degrees, I know my stuff, but the term I coined, “Building Life Coach” conveys best how this company works: we’re here to optimize buildings for our long-term customers, whether that’s getting them into the CPS programs or doing design/build projects for them.
Here’s a story I like that motivated me in the past: a small frog decided to climb to the top of the tallest tree. Her cohorts gathered around to watch, saying she’d never make it, the tree was too tall, and she was too small. As she climbed, they continued their chatter, then began yelling at her that she wouldn’t make it. All the while, she kept climbing, climbing, until she reached the top. Her secret?
She was deaf.
