Today, we begin season 4!!!!! Without your support as listeners, we wouldn't be here....so THANK YOU!!!! Additionally, thank you, #CatchSitkaSportFishing and #ACMEHomes, for your continued support as sponsors of this podcast!
Today, we sit down with Blaine Caples, who is the Chief Revenue Officer of GDH Consulting. Blaine and I worked together nearly 20 years ago at Hall Kinion and Kforce, where Blaine was a leader in our organization. He has over 23 years of progressive career growth in the staffing industry. He has held positions across all industry levels, primarily focusing on strategically developing and growing sales organizations.
However, today we talk to Blaine, the dad, and learn about his story of growing up. We learn how growing up in a small town in Oklahoma shaped him through his hard-working parents. Blaine's mom was a bank teller, and his dad was a truck driver, and they taught him many valuable lessons about hard work and commitment. He learned early that nothing comes easy and you must work hard for everything.
While he was still married, Blaine and his ex-wife always wanted to teach their kids fiscal responsibility and stay grounded. To this day, the boys and Blaine still have a team stock-picking account they work on together, which I found fascinating! Both of their boys would learn these valuable lessons and work very hard through school and sports.
Blaine would also share some valuable wisdom for all of us dads still raising kids in our homes. He reminded us that we would never get time back, so make sure you do whatever you can to make every activity or event your kids are involved in. He also reminded us all the power of patience and how that can positively impact our families. Lastly, love your family and hug them often. Encourage them in what they want to do, not what you want them to do.
