My first job was at Star Hardware, a True Value franchise owned by my grandparents. They taught me to work hard, be trustworthy, have integrity, and treat people with respect. True Star Consulting is named in their honor.
These lessons became the foundation of a successful career leading marketing for business of all sizes for over 20 years, including some of the most respected Fortune 500 brands in the world.
