Expert Bio

Hey, I'm Dillon! I am a seasoned entrepreneur with a diverse background. Over the course of 25 years, I've honed my creativity, entrepreneurial prowess, and resilience, all enriched by the unique perspective of living with the daily realities of right hemiparesis resulting from a pre-birth stroke-like experience. I've refined my expertise in leadership and community development through radical vulnerability and the emphasis on personal ecology. This helps me lead myself, my teams, and my communities as we navigate the ever changing landscape of startups and small businesses. For me, it is critical to success that I prioritize the lifestyle I want to live then design a business model that allows me to achieve this goal. Doing this has helped me maintain a higher level of satisfaction personally and professionally. Book a session with me if: A) You're an entrepreneur or thinking of starting a for-profit or nonprofit organization & are seeking to understand how to prioritize your wellbeing to be an effective leader B) You're seeking improved experience for yourself and your teams C) You are interested in maintaining a healthy personal ecology and would like to discuss best practices. More About Me: I started performing as a musician at a young age and eventually turned that passion into a career that allowed me to perform in rooms of thousands for over a decade after earning a master's degree in entrepreneurship. I then spent 7 years in education nonprofits including 5 years as the literacy director of a nonprofit where I successfully designed an adult education pipeline and I was recognized for my dedication to the youth of a neighborhood elementary school. I launched a handcrafted hot sauce company in 2017 with my wife and we grew that company through 2020 with sales in all 50 states, a broad product line including single-batch exclusives, and merchandise for an enthusiastic community of customers numbering in the thousands. We decided to sunset that project to focus on family after the arrival of our first child in 2019. In 2022 I launched my consulting firm in order to facilitate entrepreneurial programs for a lending agency. In that role a helped minority business owners navigate the challenges of early stage ventures and small businesses. Currently, I work as the executive coach and assistant to the founder of a disability ministry and advocacy nonprofit by and for uniquely embodied individuals. Additionally, I work as a casting director for an investment firm that produces a reality tv style entrepreneurial bootcamp. In this role I speak with roughly 750 business owners annually. Finally, I am the creator and facilitator of the Sauntermore peer discussion group for leaders with disabilities. My primary hobby is endurance cycling. Since 2012 I've transformed by mind and body as I've pedaled around the US. I am a member of Leadership Tulsa's LT360 Class 64, Thrive 5, and Hispanic Leadership Institute Class 7. In January 2023 I became a certified practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic programming, Time Line Therapy, and Hypnotherapy. Looking forward to our potential session together!
