Man’s sabbatical leads to fuller life

Holly HolmquistHolly Holmquist, host of Open Conversations, will be interviewing Rick Gage, a successful businessman who left the corporate rat race for a rewarding career. Tune in Sunday, November 20th from 3 p.m. – 4 p.m. to hear this fascinating conversation.

Over the last 35 years, Rick has worked for some of the largest, most prestigious companies in the world. His clients have included a long list of highly visible, multi-billion dollar global companies

Rick climbed the corporate ladder to Vice President. He was, in his own words, “a driven, classic workaholic”. He loved building high performing teams and creating a positive, people oriented culture. His passions for creating community and helping people reach their highest potential found ample avenues for expression. But the obsession with work took its toll and in 2008, Rick reached a breaking point. His achievements were no longer rewarding. He felt there had to be something more. So, he took a leap into the unknown with an extended sabbatical, that he says changed and saved his life.

One of his passions in the last few years has been personal branding. He has been a coach and mentor for many people inside and outside of the corporate world. He loves helping people discover their uniqueness and develop opportunities that align with the deepest truth of who they are.
