Preserve.Inc is a unique network of caring professionals dedicated to helping individuals and organizations prepare, form, and maintain healthy organizations and relationships.
Utilizing Proprietary AI Technology
Our mission is to help individuals and organizations avoid many of the systemic and repetitive failures and pain points in life and business. We come at it from a position of understanding, encouragement, and with restoration and growth front of mind.
With almost 30 years' experience founding and running multiple companies, I've seen the good, bad, and the ugly. I've been fortunate to align with some incredible people and organizations over the years, and believe in the power of community, straight-talk, and proactive planning. I've lived in big cities, small towns (<1000), high-rises, waterfront, mountains, and everything in between. Life is the best educator, and I've lived a full one so far in my almost 50 years.
My wife, Stacey, and I want to help others navigate the often stormy waters of life. Give back. Leave a mark. Do the outrageous and disrupt the status quo.
Preserve what matters. ❤️
