Executive Lion exists to serve those in leadership by creating a platform of inspiration, education, and community to overcome professional and life’s challenges together.
The concept of Executive Lion started back in the summer of 2017 as my business started to take a life of its own without demanding as much of my time. Since 14 hours days were no longer required, I was plagued with thoughts of how most of the challenges I faced could have been avoided if someone had shared similar frustrations with me along the way. Over the years, I have written numerous posts on facebook that seemed to garner positive attention from friends who would reach out through likes, texts or phone calls to let me know how they appreciated my transparency. What stood out to me was how many of us shared the same experiences, yet we thought we were all alone. This sparked the desire to start showcasing executives around town and discussing how they overcame their challenges to show that our struggles aren’t unique.
Later as I was building this website and the business model, I discovered that a friend of mine had already started “Living Life on Purpose.” He was meeting with executives and sharing their stories, but with a twist that focused more on how faith and purpose helped them overcome the challenges of building their organizations. We discussed our ideas and realized there was value in working together. This is how Executive Lion’s – Living Life on Purpose came about.
As we discussed how to overcome the trials of building a startup, we recognized that we are also a startup. As we go through our own journey of building this platform, we will be ‘practicing what we say’ and sharing along the way. You can watch us grow as we ourselves navigate through the challenges of building Executive Lion for you while still managing our own day-to-day businesses and personal lives.
This is why we are in business. We want to serve people. We want to serve you. So please reach out to us if you have feedback to help us along this ride!
