When Everything is Against Us, We Find a Way to Win

One of our core values at Denali Executives is NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE.

This video of Michael Phelps and the rest of the United States 4×1 free relay team are a true example of finding a way to win even when the odds aren’t in your favor. France was the favorite: “How many times have I broken this down over the last two weeks, EVERY TIME, it comes out France. Each one of them has to have the PERFECT RACE” said one of the commentators.


These dogs need to get off the porch and hunt!

This past weekend our management team flew down to San Antonio, TX to set some goals for the up and coming year. We were able to hear from some of our top consultants and even heard from 3 time super bowl champion, retired Dallas Cowboy Darren Woodson. Darren talked to us about the importance of having ‘short term amnesia’, how to self-scout yourself, the fatigue, fear and excitement he use to feel walking through the tunnel to start each football game and even talked about the inspirational words that Michael Irvin use to yell in the huddle before each game, “These dogs need to get off the porch and hunt!”

One of the most exciting parts of the weekend was when some of the top performing managers and rookie owners received not only recognition but some big checks as well. All in all 5 million dollars was awarded to individuals doing the right things. Definitely setting the bars high for this year.

While we definitely learned a lot it wasn’t all work and no play. We had the chance to visit the boardwalk in downtown San Antonio and hear a mariachi band while having lunch on the river. We even drove by the Alamo!

Although it was hard to leave the 70 degree weather our team was ready to head home after such an eventful trip and we are looking forward to hitting some big goals this year!
