About Keith

Success depends on how you handle your mistakes; not whether you make mistakes.

“I should know, I’ve made plenty of them!”

Keith is president of Created For Excellence  LLC, a company dedicated to helping people understand they are created in God’s image, which helps them find their purpose and live with passion. Keith is a speaker, author, and coach, and speaks at men’s conferences, business luncheons, churches, and corporate events. He’s also a husband, father, and proud grandfather.
In Keith’s thirty years of experience as a successful entrepreneur, he started three successful businesses, merged them into a successful manufacturing business with multiple locations, and sold it all to a Fortune 200 company.
And in thirty-six years of a successful, fulfilling marriage, he learned what matters most, and what doesn’t matter at all.

“Yes, I’ve made my share of mistakes, and I’ve also experienced breakthroughs that wouldn’t have been possible had there not been hardships to overcome. My desire is to share my hard-earned lessons with others, to offer them a message of hope, and encourage them to dream—and dream big! After all, we serve a big God!”
Keith believes that no one can be excellent in their work and be mediocre in their personal life, or be mediocre in their work and excellent in their personal life.

“I know this because I lived that way for years; it simply doesn’t work. Excellence is a lifestyle and lifestyle is a combination of personal and work life.”

Keith’s personal experience can be summed up like this: “Your relationship with your spouse will never be what it can be until your relationship with God is what it ought to be.”

This works in your relationships with your friends, family, co-workers…it simply works in life.

A very loose paraphrase of what Jesus said in Matthew 6:33 is; “Put me first in your life and I’ll take care of the rest.”

To that end, Keith helps people understand what true success is, helps them set priorities and ultimately, achieve success in life.
His website is focused on excellence; his mission is to inspire others to “Live richer, love deeper, and work smarter.” As a result, he writes mainly on personal spiritual development, leadership, and productivity…all from a Biblical point of view.

Keith’s goal is to create insightful, relevant content that you can put to work in your personal and professional life. If you are in a position of leadership or you just want to improve your personal and professional life…then subscribe today!
