Randy especially enjoys coaching and inspiring others to grow and flourish through meeting tough challenges. His mission – to dramatically impact the lives of others – drives his systems and 140 associates. He believes it is important to inspire people to always dream bigger, and he would like to be remembered as someone who truly gave more than he received.
Colleague Starr H. Barnum says Randy, "taught me how to live my life," while industry consultant Gary Kinder says Randy, "taught me how to love my life and maintain my faith". From both, Randy learned that as a manager he should empower others and make himself obsolete. Another colleague, Kelli McCauley, told him something that has helped him gain perspective when times are tough: "The world is not messed up; you are. Be OK with it. You are unique".
