Still to this day I cannot believe I walked away from Toyota. Especially since I was on the fast track and working with the most prominent executives and leaders in Toyota.
No one would think that I would leave and at such a special time in my career.
Nevertheless, there was something deep down inside that was calling me to be an Entrepreneur. Sure enough I took the big leap and started off taking my lean expertise into many, many industries. Excitedly, I started consulting businesses in lean principles for the next 20 years.
In that same time I started 20 companies of my own and developed priceless experiences that has allowed me to solve some of the most complex problems in business.
