About Me & My Personal Commitment to Service
I was raised to believe that we get more by giving. I’ve even read that giving improves one’s health. Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “It is one of the most beautiful compensations of this life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.” Giving simply means selfless service. That is to do for someone else what you know in your heart is right. Many of us could do this consistently if it wasn’t for fear; fear of losing wealth, fear of losing control, fear of looking stupid. However, the radical truth is that we weren’t created to be served but to serve.
I am deeply committed to my beautiful wife of 25 years and strive to support our two children in ways that will make them independent thinkers. I’m convinced that true success includes achieving a thriving and harmonious home and no achievement at work can eclipse this reality.
For years I’ve been convinced that selfless service was the only worthy business model. Not until meeting Jonathan Keyser did I see such a bold embrace of this model, and I knew I needed to become part of it. Relentless client champion is not just a tagline or a phrase that is uttered, at Keyser it is lived.
