After beginning his career with Arthur Andersen where he helped organizations utilize technology to improve their processes, CJ shifted his focus towards the small business.

CJ’s coaching, speaking and training is built upon the simple belief that intellectually reaching your goals is easy. Unfortunately, very few people make the changes necessary to transform their lives. CJ’s unique approach allows him to build an emotional connection with his audience that leads to an actual change in behavior.
