About the Author
Between them, the authors possess 3 and one-half college degrees, 40+ years of business experience, and the lumps and scars to prove it. Their professional ports of call include ADP, AT&T, FedEx, Genuine Parts Co., Jacksonville University, and Wendy’s (not necessarily in that order). In addition to running a successful training and consulting business, both are consummate professional speakers (Richard has earned the coveted CSP award) with a message chock-full of hope, inspiration, and useful ideas.

    Why executives should read Contented Cows

    As an experienced manager and international management consultant, I highly recommend Contented Cows to executives of any type organization. But Contented Cows is especially timely for any profit-making organization challenged with finding new ways to add more to the bottom line. Contented Cows is written from actual experience - it is full of proven principles and facts. So unless your organization is raking in so much money that you don't need to improve financially, Contented Cows is well worth the relatively small investment.
