The great companies we emulate and idolize never show up in an ordinary way. Kevin Brown explains how to pour your talents, gifts, and abilities into the people you serve and serve with.

Kevin Brown's unconventional path to business and personal success has taught him that winning in business and in life requires anything but conventional thinking. He grew up in Muskegon, Michigan where his blue collar roots taught him the value of hard work and determination. His resume includes an eclectic mix of career stops that ultimately led him to the purchase of a franchise at the age of seventeen. With a street-wise aptitude and a never quit attitude, he worked his way from the front lines in business to the executive boardroom. For nearly two decades, Kevin was a sales and marketing executive that helped grow a little known family business into an industry giant with annual revenues reaching two billion dollars. Along the way, he learned a lot about overcoming adversity, dealing with change, and creating a culture that drives organizational excellence and customer loyalty.
