He has endured personal tragedy which created the foundation and beliefs that led him to understand the leadership style he has been called to serve. Johnny is an active public speaker and promoter of reshaping thoughts through difficult times to accept, grow and eventually thrive. His company is a self-funded small private equity firm with four divisions; Encourage Healthy Living, Encourage Leadership, Encourage Investment and Encourage Adoption. A believer in seasons of life, Johnny has chosen to spend his 50’s focused on driving meaningful change in the workplace and at home through Encourage, LLC.
