Kerry is an accomplished pediatric nurse, author, and speaker. And oh yeah, kept two kids alive, fed and in a seemingly healthy mental state. She runs the household and is the glue that holds the family together.
Kerry is the mastermind behind “In Bed with the Business,” an Entrepreneurial Spouse’s Survival Guide. This Amazon best seller was the foundation for the Whole Life Entrepreneurship methodology. Kerry discovered that applying business systems to the family brought some much needed order to the chaos between her and Adam.
Kerry is not 100% comfortable standing up and saying, “We figured it all out! Here is how marriage works.” Rather, she has stated time and time again, “These tools saved my marriage and then enriched it. I would love to share it with others and let them know that they are normal, they are OK, and that they are not alone.”
Adam started life as a military brat in the air force, growing up in Germany and Florida. No, he doesn’t speak German anymore. Yes he can speak Floridian. He dropped out of the University of Utah after 96 credit Hours of downhill skiing, snow shoe camping, whitewater kayaking, rock climbing, and wilderness survival (Only got a B- on that one so trust, but verify in an emergency).
After saving the world from Y2K, Adam got into Cyber Security and has been in that world for 20 years. 15 years ago he launched his first of many companies. He has 14 failed companies (he calls these his non-profit work) and one successful exit. He currently has 5 companies in flight and raising a seed round for one of them.
Adam is the author of 4 books on cyber security and has given one TED talk on the subject.
Adam spent 3 years as the Entrepreneur in Residence at Clemson University’s MBA program and has developed a true love of helping other entrepreneurs get started or take the next step. He does this through working with incubators and accelerators, being a member of numerous entrepreneurial organizations, writing books, giving key notes, and coaching.
He discovered that business success without also success in the family was a hollow thing for him. He is now a practitioner of "Whole Life Entrepreneurship", a methodology and community he founded with his wife. His mostest favorite thing to do in the world is craft adventures for his wife, Kerry and their two kids, Eva and Kenton.
It is completely appropriate to ask for his assistance when it comes to entrepreneurial relationships, cyber security, public speaking, puns, and the journey through start up, cashing in, selling out, and bro-ing down.
