ABOUT RICK WICKIZER:

bwcoach_0005250Hi, I am Rick Wickizer. My passion is to serve people who are looking for positive change. I love helping a business move to the next level and I delight in helping a person discover there purpose & passion. It’s fun, fulfilling and what a blessing it is, to be part of an individuals transformation or to witness a business turn-around.

In life I have enjoyed success and I have experienced  failure.  I have climbed to the top of the mountain and I have fallen close to the bottom.  It hurt!  Though my formal education came from the University of Oregon (Finance & Management) & Erickson College (The Art & Science of Coaching), my most advanced degrees are from the “school of hard knocks”.  The refining fire of life has tempered my knowledge into wisdom.  With that wisdom, I have become passionate about sharing what I have learned with those I have the privilege to serve to co-create positive transformation.

My skills were honed by 25 years in Corporate America as a Business Development Manager, over 10 years as a coach and over 5 years as an entrepreneur. This vast array of experience has given me a very broad base of skills & tools to share with my clients when appropriate.  Yet, I’m still learning and I’m allways on a path of continuous improvement and growth.  I am an avid reader and truth seeker, with a keen focus on principle-centered ideas that support success and fulfillment.  Personally, You will find me easy going, insightful and curious.  I  love people and I am genuinely fascinated by what inspires and motivates them.

When I an not serving my clients you will likely find me doing something active.  I am a competitive runner and I love to bike, hike/climb, ski and golf.
