Over the last 15 years, Cody’s passion for business and leadership grew from starting his own businesses, being at the forefront of other start-ups, as well as leading and serving in his church. Cody’s mission is to help grow and unlock the potential in every leader and entrepreneur, and that by doing so they will make business a less stressful, more profitable, and truly rewarding journey!
Cody built his first company while he was completing his university degree, which became successful enough to put his education on hold. He has since been back to complete his degree in Business Management from the Dhillon School of Business at the University of Lethbridge as well as been certified through the PBCA to become a Certified Professional Business Coach. Cody’s many years of leadership in his church involves teaching and helping lead hundreds of people as well as developing and training other leaders to serve more effectively in their respective organizations.
Cody uses his experience and knowledge from the real world as well as his professional education and training to aid his clients in achieving their goals and becoming truly successful! He is also a Certified Extended DISC facilitator allowing him to provide this powerful leadership and behavioural tool as a supplement to his coaching and other business resources.
With a love for teaching and public speaking, Cody also loves to present on a variety of business and leadership topics.
Cody has learned that every business owner will drastically increase their level of success by developing in as many of the following areas as possible: one’s own leadership abilities, effective personal habits and discipline, healthy company culture, strong financial management practices, creating and executing a strategic plan, effective business systems, and working to serve your clients to the highest standards.
Finally, he is a proud husband, and a father of 4 lively and energetic boys! They hope to raise them to be truly influential, kind, and hard-working men.
Cody understands first-hand the amount of work and sacrifice it takes to start and operate a business, all while raising a family, serving in church leadership positions, and attending school. He’s had to be intentional with his priorities and time to ensure success and maintain a healthy and balanced life at home and at work. His mission is to help others find this success and balance too, wherever they are in the world!
