love of knowledge
Specifically  : excessive striving for or preoccupation with knowledge
Throughout Chad's career and life, he was always passionate about what makes people tick. He loved finding patterns and connections between seemingly unrelated things. Chad was always thinking about strategy and his next move. He thrived on new ideas, lived by his own rules, and sought to be different in recognizing that “one's uniqueness is your source of power."

Over the past year, he had been working on pulling all of his insights together which we discovered in notebooks, journals, sales strategy documents, and voice memos. A deep dive into sales psychology led to a study of his own experiences, how they shaped him, and what he had learned.

Chad also understood human nature and recognized that despite our differences, flaws, and unique wiring, we are all connected in our desire to be accepted, heard, and seen.

This website will continue to evolve, just as Chad was always working to do.
