About Pull the Chute

Pull the Chute was launched in September of 2021 as the result of a bit of soul searching. As I tell people, Their are a couple of important birthdays in our life. When we turn 16 because we can drive when we turn 21 because are legal. When we turn 40 because statistically, our life is half over. That's when I decided to go skydiving for the first time. You go 14,000 feet up in the sky and jump out of the plane. You are falling at 120 mph. It's hard to breathe, one movement of your hand starts you spinning, and everything is happening so fast you can't see where you're at or where you're going. But at 5,500 feet, you pull the chute, and suddenly you can breathe again, you are in control, you can see where you're at and where you want to go. So when I turned 60, I looked in the mirror and said, I don't want to retire. I like working. So what can I do that will help leave this world a little better than when I came into it.  That is when I was reminded of what it felt like to pull the chute and decided that businesses need to Pull the Chute for at least an hour a week. So they can take a breath, feel in control, and see where they are and where they want to go. So I decide to start Pull the Chute as a Business, Executive, and Leadership coaching firm. Our 10-year mission is to help as many companies as possible grow and be the best they can be. 

To do this, we realized that it's not just about coaching clients. It's also about developing materials that can help them in other ways. So we provide a blog series, weekly Podcast, PTC TV, and a video series called The Journey, and finally we started the PTC Challenge, a free group to help companies with weekly topics and materials.
