It was at this time that he began teaching the capstone entrepreneurship course in Lindenwood’s MBA program showing students by example how to lead an entrepreneurial life.  Teaching led Rick to his next endeavor, writing the book series “Entrepreneur’s Bible.”  The first book in this series “52 Proverbs of Profit” is being published now and will be available on Amazon soon.

Personal Life

In addition to his business and community endeavors, Rick loves being a father of 4, an active member and former missionary for his Mormon faith, and a diehard Cardinal fan.


Over the height of the real estate boom I invested hundreds of thousands in Costa Rican real estate. Then, the real estate bubble burst. Vacationing, foreign investment, land development, and the whole of USA middle class wealth fell off the table. Finally, the land development company I was working with went out of business without completing their part of the deal.

Even though you may have wonderful kids, an amazing life, good health, and strong faith, you can’t avoid all the pitfalls in life. Major failures have humbled me to the core reminding me that I’m just another ‘Joe’ in this world trying to get through to the end in one piece.
