Hi there!

My name is Mike Farr and I'm the founder and editor of I love helping organizations grow, thrive and succeed!  I am excited to partner with you and your team to bring out the best in your organization.

Professionally, I am a CMSgt in the Utah Air National Guard and have served in squadron and base level leadership roles. Previously, I led a squad in the active duty Army. I earned my B.A. from Brigham Young University in 2005 and my M.A. from the University of Utah in 2011.
