About Tim Mushey

Dynamic and energized sales rep, mentor and leader since 1999. This blog will be about sales, social networking, personal branding, leadership, music and having some laughs!

I am ready to go from the moment my feet hit the floor each morning, with the expectation that new adventures will be coming my way. It is rare that there isn't a smile on my face, as I take it all in, and have some fun along the way!

  1. Hi Tim, Like you I found David a week or so ago and have been mesmerized by the honesty, intensity, and practicality of his posts…in fact I’ve got a comment on one of his posts, awaiting moderation to see if a bunch of us can go with him to Spain to do the “El Camino de Santiago” as touched on by the film The Way…I’m sure we can count you in as well…

    Be encouraged!

    • Stephen… I have been to Spain once, and would love to go again! Let me know the details 🙂 David does have an incredible blog for sure! Enjoy your week, and stay in touch…
